To maximize the functionality of this space, Chip and Joanna added a large kitchen island that added more counter and prep space, as well as gave the family a place to sit down for a casual meal. Joanna continued her rustic industrial style in the kitchen, painting the cabinets to match the trim and molding throughout the first floor. She also added industrial pendant lights, an industrial style sink and rustic industrial barstools to complete the look.
These homeowners were very interested in bringing their love for the natural beauty of the outdoors inside and mixing it with the modern design style they already love. This photo shows that they succeeded. The large window overlooking the sink brings in plenty of natural light, allowing nature into the space. The live edge wood shelving shows the raw beauty of nature, while the colors on the wall and the backsplash are earthy shades of green, yellow and gray. These natural elements blend perfectly with the clean lines of the countertop and the modern pendant light, bringing the couple's ideas of an eco modern design to life.

This stylish Philadelphia studio utilizes every inch of space without making the room seem busy. The neutral walls and bedding keep the space controlled and balanced.

To quickly hide the bedroom from the kitchen and dining area, he added tall draperies as an easy room divider. Tip: Downsize the furniture to expand the space — buy a loveseat instead of a large sectional. If you like to entertain, invest in small barstools: They take up little space and provide plenty of seating for guests.

More sugary pastels add to the sumptuous mood.

This Victorian Gothic wall cabinet is filled with vintage cosmetic jars, ivory grooming implements, shells, sponges, towels and soaps. “If you have glass-fronted shelves, use it as an opportunity not just for storage but for display of interesting objects,” says Susan Sully, author of the book “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques” in which this home was featured. Sully also recommends painting the back of a cabinet a dark color to make light objects really stand out.

This walkout basement had two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space.

After removing ugly redundant wiring from the entire ceilings, pipes, beams and walls were sprayed white.

The homeowners wanted a simple, elegant master bathroom that was still functional, just like the rest of their newly redesigned home, so designers created a beautiful space with a neutral color palette.

So many elements of this bunk room design are just awesome. The wavy wallpaper on the back wall is really fun and gives the room an underwater effect.
