Bright Yellow Playroom with Kid-Friendly Furniture
A bright yellow accent wall, green sofa, and blue chairs sets a fun and imaginative tone for this modern, colorful playroom. Gray carpet tiles are a kid-friendly alternative that are easy to clean and replace. The kids' drawings are framed and hung on the wall as the highlights of this play place.
Stunning Transitional Foyer With Patterned Hardwood Floors
Though recently renovated, this foyer still has all the hallmarks of a historic home: tall ceilings with crown molding, patterned hardwood floors, a grand staircase, etc. By outfitting the space with artwork and accents in teal and coral hues, the designers were able to update the interior without compromising its character.
Connecting with family and friends is effortless in this inviting space that provides plenty of room to gather for a game night or relax over coffee. Subtle grid patterns repeat through the space while the warm color scheme is inviting and energizing.
In a corner of the dining room, a wet bar provides ample storage for dishes and serverware and also includes a built-in wine cooler and sink to make guests the perfect cocktail in one convenient place.
The goals for the playroom design? Practicality, lots of comfy seating, clutter control and flexibility (the owners wanted a room that could be adapted as kids get bigger). A cozy built-in bench handily solved two of the needs, upholstered in performance fabrics for better durability and easy cleaning.
The entrance to this master retreat allows the homeowners to wake up to a quick cuppa at the built-in hallway coffee bar. The backsplash features textural capiz shells, and the mirrored cabinets reflect the mica-embellished ceiling treatment. A crystal semi-flush chandelier finishes off the space.
Even in your lease, you can update your home with the latest devices. "Smart technology is all the rage. From thermostats, doorbell cameras, smart locks and light bulbs, nearly everything in your home can be connected to the internet and controlled by a smart device," offers Meghan Giddens, Invitation Homes resident design expert.
In the foyer, the ceiling stretches up over two stories high to create a soaring space. The brown wallpaper in the formal dining room matches the front door and pulls visitors into the rest of the house.
White Transitional Two-Story Foyer with Curved Staircase
A series of curved windows slope with the steps of this curvaceous staircase, one of myriad design details that set this Greenwich, Connecticut, home apart. White walls create a gallery-like effect throughout the space, while custom iron stair rails and dramatic lighting give it contemporary flair.
Transitional Foyer Features French Doors to Private Terrace
On the other side of the foyer, French doors open to the private terrace -- which is actually just one of several outdoor spaces included in this expansive property. When the weather's nice, the owners can prop open the doors and enjoy fresh air in the comfort of their home.
Transitional Gray Basement Bar With Wood Countertop
The custom bar uses every square foot to maximize entertaining and work space. Gray walls, a wood countertop and white cabinetry blend beautifully, and pendant lights keep the space bright. In the toy room beyond, built-in storage keeps the space organized.
With its decorative ceiling, crystal chandelier and crisp white walls, this foyer thoughtfully straddles the line between traditional and modern. Artwork in light wood frames not only complements the staircase, but also draws the eye up to the home's second level.
Transitional Crafts Room With Built in Cabinet Storage, Moveable Table Panels and Adjustable Pendant Lights
Built in storage including traditional white cabinets, glass door cabinets and open display shelving leave this space organized and free from clutter crowding the work space. Moveable table panels slide over the white countertop for creating a comfortable and suitable workspace. Adjustable pendant lights allow for light control over the tabletops.
