Living Room With Bamboo Flooring
"Bamboo has been around for a long time, but what we are seeing lately is an explosion of colors and styles," says Dean Howell, president of Atlanta-based MODA Floors & Interiors. While technically a fast-growing grass, bamboo is as hard or harder than most hardwoods when dried. Newer products called strand-woven bamboo, a highly engineered product using the inner fibers, are twice as hard as traditional bamboo flooring. Dean says that in addition to the common thin-banded styles shoppers have become accustomed to, bamboo is offered in wide-plank styles that mimic the look of classic hardwoods. As with all wood flooring, it's best to keep bamboo out of moisture-prone rooms like kitchens and baths.
Cottage Style Girls Bedroom With Plate Collage Wall
Soft teal walls create a great contrast against the curtains made from bright coral fabric for a color palette that's not typical for a little girl's room. Decorative plates match the mirror's cutout above the bookshelf. A white armchair and white wicker ottoman provide a comfortable place to read.
Modern White Kitchen Island With Wood & Metal Stools
This minimalist kitchen features a spacious white island with wood and metal stools. A marble backsplash lines the wall behind the stove, while brushed nickel hardware and fixtures add finishing touches.
This wonderful baby boy's nursery used the theme of transportation to inspire its whimsical decor. Accessories and toys fill the space with planes, trains and automobiles. Bold, graphic prints and stripes in blue, black, gray and yellow add vibrancy and color.
A plush brown sofa with blue accent pillows provides a comfy spot to relax and unwind in this modern family room. A pair of light blue footstools act as ottomans on which to prop up your feet after a long day.
The parlor's two low-slung leather navy sofas with kiln dried solid wood frames have vertical channeling that goes up and down the sofas and adds an extra touch of visual interest to this inviting space that seats about ten people.
Bookcase With Colorful Reading Pods Keeps Playroom Organized
A huge shelving unit spans the length of the wall, with different cubbies to keep books and toys organized. Bright orange and blue pods are built into the design, too, so that the kiddos can read in comfort.
The wall behind this bathroom's glorious soaking tub is textured white tile. Paired with rustic details like the wood ladder (a fun way to hang towels) and woven side table, the look is multi-dimensional.
This hilltop home and garden in Bel Air boldly pairs modern design with sustainable practices. As guests move from the courtyard to back of the house, they'll find various grasses, sculptural succulents and a grove of Eucalyptus trees -- all of which require little water and maintenance. Sansevieria plants introduce this idea in the clean, contemporary courtyard.

This contemporary outdoor space shines at night thanks to landscape lighting and a warm glow cast by the pool house. A dining table and chairs sit just a few steps to the left, allowing the owners and their friends to enjoy dinner al fresco.
Contemporary Dining Nook With Exposed Beams And Wallpapered Ceiling
This contemporary dining nook is ideal for casual meals or playing games, and features rustic exposed beams and a blue patterned wallpaper ceiling, soft gray walls, traditional round table and upholstered dining chairs, and a modern pendant light.
Mudroom with Pantry Space with White Cabinetry and Black Pegboard
White, modern slab face cabinets hide a decent amount of pantry space and utility closet and feature great leather handles. A giant pegboard allows flexibility for whatever storage needs may arise. Pegs can be rearranged to hold towels, hats, life vests, etc.
For this remodel we wanted to update this space to create a timeless Master Suite. By keeping the walls a lighter color and adding softness to the widows we created a space that is tranquil and inviting. The dark furniture is a good grounding feature to this overall light space. By creating those contrasts it makes this space feel sophisticated and tailored.
