The Lakeshore Designs team gave this mudroom a crisp, tailored feel while still making it ultra-functional. Baskets inside high cubbies conceal loose items such as gloves, while drawers keep footwear and other gear hidden away. Even coats and bags hanging from the hooks won't look untidy, thanks to the clean backdrop. Throw pillows and a cheery rug make the space feel polished.
Geometric, black and white patterned floor tile injects a dash of whimsy and a lot of style into this bathroom. Flat panel wooden drawers neutralize the graphic floor and add warmth to the all-white space. Black fixtures give the vanity a contemporary look.
Positioned in a quiet corner next to the kitchen, this study nook allows the homeowner to tend to email or look up dinner recipes. The countertop is a mahogany butcher block, an elegant contrast to the white drawers.
Wood tones run the risk of appearing too heavy when placed against a dark wall, such as this midnight blue bedroom hall. But just a touch of white can balance things out, as it does with this dresser and matted artwork.
