Home renovation marries elegance and comfort

This master bathroom design features a free-standing tub and oversized glass-enclosed shower.

The unique backsplash immediately draws eyes and commands attention, that is, until guests notice the stunning vessel bowl sink.

A massive desk with built-in shelving, made of amber Appalachian cherry wood, creates a masculine feel in this home office.

In addition to using traditional living room furniture, this den also bucked the system by using a desk with saw horse-inspired legs and black leather with white stitching versus the usual mahogany desk, or something similar.

Due to this home's open floor plan, the family room entertainment center ties in perfectly with the dark finish of the nearby kitchen cabinets, creating a cohesive design.

A wall of windows keeps this cheery living room bright, shining on a plush sofa and other coordinating accessories.

A poster bed, mother-of-pearl lamps and a mirrored nightstand establish a modern look in this master bedroom design.

Matching bedside lamps and a calming bedspread pattern help to create a cozy vibe in this bedroom.

This soothing bedroom design focuses on simplicity. The lack of excess furniture and bright colors helps to create a perfectly relaxing retreat.

Dark cherry vanities and storage cabinets create a rich look in this master bathroom design.

In this home, the walls of the kitchen, nearby family room and home office are painted a cool ice blue shade.

This kitchen design has flat panel cabinet doors of dark rift-cut oak with an espresso stain and countertops of Neapolitan granite.

A grand piano contrasts nicely with a painting on the wall and adds a formal touch to the inviting living room.
