In the bathroom, designers used the modern, Asian motif from the rest of the home to bring in unique features that give this space a spa like feel. The window above the large soaking tub gives the space plenty of natural light, while the bamboo wood panel helps to create some privacy between the spa space and the outdoors. To create privacy inside the home, panels of frosted glass create a space in the bathroom that is separate from the rest of the room's spaces; however, by using panels of glass rather than glass sheets, designers were able to keep the bath area from feeling cut off and separate-keeping the room's design flow continuous-while still giving this space an amount of privacy.
The beautiful finish on the cabinets in this contemporary open plan kitchen echoes both the hardwood floors and the exposed beams of the ceiling. One row of elegant pendant lights illuminates the kitchen island; a second sets apart the adjacent dining area.

In the bathroom, Ana Claudia shows off her unique talent for picking just the right tile for a space. White subway tile looks uber-cool laid both vertically and horizontally for maximum whimsy. Warm brick adds sophistication to the bathroom design. And modern brass his-and-her mirrors finish off the space, giving it a modern feel. The mix of aesthetics works perfectly in this forever family home.
The living room can easily seat 10-15 guests. To one side, a large sectional provides an inviting view of the great outdoors. The streamlined sofa is featured alongside a vintage coffee table. Ana Claudia loves sourcing vintage finds in neighborhood stores. The living area also brings the outdoors in with sculptural plants in the corner.
A decorative window provides privacy without offending your neighbors or blocking out natural light the way a full-blown wall would. This stylish DIY idea from Lowe's costs less than $100, and you can customize the glass with any stencil design you like.
A neutral palette is used throughout this Texas ranch home to create a warm, welcoming environment. To create a space that is visually interesting, a mix of natural textures, from the rustic woods to the knubby fabrics, is used.
Soothing beige walls contribute to this living room's calming ambiance. The color coral is put to good use here via the throw pillows and armchair, keeping the room from feeling too neutral. A chevron rug adds a quirky final touch to the space.
