A high-pitched roof gives a family starry views from the outdoor porch of a rustic lake home in Georgia. Builder Mike Hammersmith came up with the double-sided fireplace with steel pocket doors that slide behind it. On nice days, the pocket doors can open and connect the living room with the porch.
Modern hardware is a great aesthetic alternative to standard chrome and brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and gives a bathroom a more traditional look and feel. Working on a budget?

The wormy chestnut vanity in this bathroom was topped with a thick concrete top and semi-recessed sink.

To make this dining room ready for the holidays, designers added sprigs of evergreen to the chandelier and buffet, then added wintry accessories like snow-dusted pinecones and a small white Christmas tree.
