Sleek Bathroom Style
Designer Vern Yip squeezes a lot of luxury into tight quarters in this Manhattan high-rise. To maximize the natural light streaming in from one lone window, Vern covered both the floor and main wall in Ann Sacks glass tile for its light-reflecting qualities. Because space is at a premium, the vanity features a slim, elliptical profile with 2 pivoting doors that swing out to provide plenty of storage for necessary toiletries.
Upholstered headboards are a fabulous way to add texture and depth to a bedroom. Designer Emily Henderson encourages readers to try this easy, do-it-yourself project. "The headboard is made simply by wrapping batting and then fabric around a large inexpensive piece of plywood and using a staple gun to attach it," says Henderson.
Stylish, White Contemporary Living Room With Neutral Elements
In this living space, a single-arm sofa, ottoman and small dining table combine for an unconventional yet ultra-functional seating arrangement. Floor-to-ceiling draperies balance the room's strong horizontal lines and propel the gaze upward.
Contemporary Monochromatic Living Room with Pop of Red
A single dash of red from the side chair animates this quiet, subdued living area. The two-tone sofa plays warm against cool for a contemporary offbeat palette, while a trio of framed black and white photos hangs above.
Traditional furniture with modern updates gives this home office a fresh, youthful vibe. The tray ceiling adds height and depth. A gorgeous view outside the sliding glass doors provides constant inspiration and refreshing natural light.
Down the hall, the owners have access to a home office. A huge built-in bookshelf displays various odds and ends, while a contemporary desk and midcentury chair create a dedicated workspace -- complete with a large photograph of a French bulldog!
This transitional bedroom combines pale gray and cream for a sophisticated color palette. White window trim and graphic headboards give the look a crisp edge. The x-base stools and textured nightstands add character to the design without overpowering the look.
The classic four-poster bed is flanked by traditional white nightstands topped with bold blue lamps. A gathered window valance features a small-scale polka dot pattern that is repeated throughout the room.
Weathered white beams serve the neat trick of guiding the eye along the length of this open concept dining room down to a small music area with a piano. The red rug beneath the dining table helps define that space in the open layout.
