A black bed frame and pink linens make this master suite feel edgy yet feminine. To the right, a nightstand keeps evening essentials like books or a glass of water within reach, while a bench provides space for getting ready in the morning.
For day-to-day use, this space is used for laid-back, casual dining. The cool pastel palette keeps the room looking young and fresh and the unexpected use of kitchen island lighting over the dining table helps keep the spot brightly lit after dark.
By simply adding a book tower to one corner for keeping favorite hardcovers handy and on display, and incorporating a rolling caddy to house art and craft supplies, the space is perfectly equipped to be used for creative and work purposes any day of the week.
One of the best ways to maximize your money when furnishing one space for several uses is to consider an eclectic style. This creative workstation is made of a mashup of midcentury modern and coastal cottage side chairs, a transitional white painted table, a geometric rug, industrial-style lighting and playful touches.
Neutral Transitional Living Room Features Natural Materials
An exposed-beam ceiling, wood-paneled walls and a wicker-frame sofa add an organic element to this neutral transitional living room. An antique cabinet draws the eye while mustard-yellow swivel chairs add welcome color to the room.
Help a neutral bedroom feel lush and luxurious by layering in textures and rich natural tones. Here, the bed is upholstered with a heathered gray fabric. Silky linens, a mix of accent pillows and a faux fur throw are added on top.
Family-Friendly Dining Nook With Large Framed Portraits
This family-friendly breakfast nook is designed to feel warm and relaxing. The high-gloss white finishes on the floors, furnishings and even the window treatments help reflect the natural light. The space-saving round table creates a more casual environment, and oversized photos make a statement that family is at the heart of this home.
Contemporary furnishings create contrast when set in a historic home. In this transitional bedroom, a clean-lined canopy bed, crisp white trim and olive-toned accents combine for a look that is both trendy and timeless.
A striking gold transitional master bedroom features a lime green chair that coordinates with the lime green walls in the adjacent sitting room. Copper accents in the bedding and throw pillows add elegance.
A tranquil landscape looms so large in this sunny corner it feels as if one could step into it. The modern, graphic fabric on a pair of wicker chairs echoes the intricate lines of the leaded glass windows. Weighty accessories of varying heights on the round table balance the artwork and bring proportion to the space.
This kitchen employs simplicity and clean lines to achieve a sleek and classic style. Tubular cabinet and appliance hardware combined with a rectangular stained glass backsplash enforce strong horizontal elements in the design. A pass-through was created between the kitchen and dining room, and the sink window was bumped out, making the smaller space seem more open.
