Coming out of the dark

Waterfront home steps into the light after a massive house remodeling

Soft white cabinetry runs around the perimeter of this kitchen design, setting a backdrop for the striking hood and the dark island.

Looking down the length of this central hall, the old stone tile flooring was replaced by an elegant mosaic pattern designed by Gage Martin using Calcutta marble, taupe stone and Walker Zanger tile trim.

The massive, thick Calacatta marble slab on the center island is the highlight of the kitchen. The light fixtures, both over the island and nearby in the dining area, add an elegant twist to the whole design.

This dramatic, two-sided fireplace, a classically proportioned renaissance piece, anchors the formal living room and music room on the other side.

This resort-style swimming pool features a rock wall and cascading waterfalls painted with muted colors.

Bold wall art, colorful accessories and striped throw pillows prove that you don't need to stick to neutrals to create an elegant bedroom design. Just the right amount of color displays your personality and creates a welcoming environment.

The kids room design ideas used throughout this room create a playful space where any kid can let some energy loose. From the display of artwork on the wall to the guitar propped against the couch, there's something for every creative outlet.

This waterfront home has beautiful rear views of a dramatic waterfall swimming pool and the canal beyond, which can be viewed from the floor to ceiling Nana windows.

Furniture of all shapes and sizes lines the perimeter of this home theater, just beckoning to guests to curl up with a good flick.

Plush lounge chairs with colorful outdoor cushions and pillows serve as a relaxing place to lean back and admire the view.

When these homeowners were looking for a place to settle down, they were looking for something with plenty of outdoor space. Luckily, they stumbled upon this beauty, which features an extensive landscape design and a swimming pool

In this dining room design, the chairs are covered in a platinum finished vinyl and a platinum light fixture overhead adds a shimmer.

In this sitting room, a mixed-media collage by New Orleans artist Layla Messkoub is a favorite piece of wall art that the owners picked up at the New Orleans Jazz Fest.

In a small sitting area leading to the bathroom, some of the homeowner's favorite furniture—chairs from a previous home—are recovered in fun blue leopard print pattern.
