Once a raw, industrial space, designers brought in glitzy design details to create a unique residential space. First, they raised the ceilings from eight foot to nearly eleven, creating a more dramatic space. Then, they installed a luxurious black and white tile floor and complimentary copper pendant lights that became the focal point of the space. Finally, they brought in rich, leather furniture and installed a glamorous wet bar to the space.
Favorite feature: The lighting, which is a custom installation of multiple pendants sourced on Ebay, is definitely what catches most people's eye —it’s the conversation starter that gets all the compliments. That design element set against the truly amazing view of the Long Island Sound and the New York City skyline make for a stunning visual. The custom bar is also exceptional with its luxurious materials, from the antique mirror in the back to the exotic wood cabinetry and beautiful Saint Laurent marble on the counter.
A square tufted ottoman serves as a coffee table and optional seating in this light-filled, family-friendly living room. The cheery blue and white color scheme is punctuated by pops of yellow, and a stylish mix of pillows adds color and comfort.
In the family room, the homeowners wanted a space that was a little more fun and family friendly, so designers livened the space up with bright colors and patterned wallpaper. The blue sectional and modern chair give the space plenty of seating, while orange and teal throw pillows brighten the room. Display shelves give the family a place to show off pottery and display magazines for easy access, while the geometric rug and bright art work finish off the space.

Transitional Open Plan Kitchen With Black Barstools

Designers kept this kitchen's handsome traditional roots and well-planned flow, but gave it a few key updates. The charming blue backsplash is made of hand-painted terracotta and ceramic tile. Countertops are quartz with a concrete lookalike finish.
Calm Cream-Colored Bedroom Feels Like Serene Retreat
Warm cream and gray tones in this bedroom create a calm, serene retreat while the velvet upholstered stools and fur throw add a soft, textural touch. The upholstered headboard adds to the luxurious feel while the cream area rug adds warmth and texture to the bedroom.
Staying neutral with an area rug doesn't mean you have to pay big money for an 8x10 rectangle of blah. Consider a tone-on-tone stripe or a chic graphic pattern that adds interest without stealing the show.
