This view from the guest bathroom to the adjoining guest bedroom shows how one space transitions to the other. Three smart thermostats (one on each floor) that can be remotely operated and monitored help maintain desired temperatures and control energy bills.
Light and Bright Master Bedroom With Black Metal Bed Frame
This transitional bedroom features a black metal bed frame, gray and white bed linens, and gray throw pillows. A white globe chandelier hangs above, while a black wood nightstand is positioned on either side. A wood table lamp, flowers and stack of green books sit atop each nightstand.
The niche between the two bookshelves is the perfect spot for the crib; in later years, a headboard will tuck neatly up against the wall. The gold polka dots on the back wall are brought out by the spherical gold pendants in the center of the room.
Rustic Wine Bar With Metal Barstools in Transitional Foyer
Leaving no space unturned for entertaining purposes, this foyer turned wine bar is accented with rustic wood elements and vintage collectables. Guests can grab a barstool and stop for a drink as soon as they're inside the door.
The fastest way to add a little "prep" to your style is with a bit of trim. Designer Tobi Fairley adds white piping to the dining chairs and black trim to the lattice-print drapes for some classic preppy details. A modern rug, table and chandelier keep the room feeling updated.
Soft gray cabinets contrast against the black cabinets in this open, transitional kitchen. Subway tile is used on the inside of the glass cabinets, adding a cottage feel to the space. Stainless steel appliances lend a modern vibe to the room, while hardwood floors bring warmth.
Black-painted walls give this nook a cozy vibe while complementing the narrow rustic bar waiting to welcome guests. Wall shelves offer convenient storage, while a collection of vintage mirrors visually enlarges the space.
Transitional Kitchen With Black Island and Cabinetry
A black kitchen island and black cabinetry keep this colonial-inspired kitchen feeling sleek and stylish. The range is inset into the island for easy access to the sink and refrigerator, while on the other side of the island is a family-friendly dining area with three metal and black barstools.
This adorable nursery feels alive and oh-so-fun with lots of bold, graphic prints and personality-filled accents like the rug and the zebra above the crib. The floor space is kept open thanks to two built-in bookshelves, and a large window all along one wall fills the room with light.

Winter Bedroom Sheepskin Rug and Linens in Black Bedroom
Textile designer, Khristian A. Howell, says, "Put your feet first. A dramatic and easy way to change things up in a room is by bringing in a great rug. Sheepskin rugs are so wonderful for the winter months. They feel wonderful under foot, and bring lots of warmth into the room, while keeping a light airy feeling."
