An accent pillow with a red design adds a small change in color along with a metallic fabric ottoman.
Light blue-gray walls are an airy backdrop to the saturated, rich tones of the dining set up. Tufted chocolate brown leather chairs surround a smooth wood dining table lit by a curled chandelier hanging above.

Turquoise chairs sit at a wooden dining table, and a gold chandelier hangs from the blue ceiling above.
The focal point of this hallway collection is the antique dresser and jewelry box that are displayed prominently in the center of the wall. To accent the rich tones of the dresser's dark wood, the light wood of the floor and the frames of the art collection play off of the highlights in the dresser.

A glass wall follows the stairs to the second story, allowing this collection to be appreciated from any vantage point.

Vibrant colors and fun patterns bring a stylish contrast to this small guest room.

Framed seashells add a coastal vibe, while a red Oriental rug lends a traditional touch.
A little boy needs lots of space to play and plenty of nooks to keep all those toys. This room keeps the middle of the room open for play space with storage around the perimeter. The window sill and wooden desk provide elevated storage and extra work space. A blue accent wall is complemented by a blue area rug and striped red and blue blanket.
On the opposite side of the playroom, another set of original wood doors opens to reveal a sitting room that is swathed in the same bold teal as the playroom. In this space, a window provides natural light, while brightly colored pillows add splashes of color, and unique details, such as the fur rug and cattle skull on the wall create a stylish, eclectic space.
Open glass shelving showcases a fully stocked bar on one side of this basement entertainment room. A white tile backsplash runs under the shelving, and stainless steel chairs line the wood bar countertop. A step across the small hallway takes you into the playroom featuring built in-shelving for container storage. A green rug adds a pop of bright color and fun to the playspace.
A stick strung to the exposed ceiling beams creates a simple but attractive hanging rack for coat and clothes storage next to the black front door. Free floor space between the wall and the striped black and white rug is perfect for setting aside boots, creating a homemade mudroom. A wood ladder leaning against the wall displays a tapestry collection adding neutral tones and great texture to the space.
Brown wood and woven furnishings create a homey area for friends to gather in this open-air pool house. The structure's open yet sheltered design makes it the perfect spot for a garden party. Fretwork on a series of "windows" and a clean-lined rug bring contemporary touches to the space.
