The materials used for the bar and the home bar furniture, corrugated metal sheeting and galvanized piping, bring an industrial edge to this lower level area.
Due to the glass walls, this office space is open and visible to the rest of the home, so the interior designer decided to spice up the home office décor by adding fun splashes of color around the room.
The living room color schemes used throughout this space help to define the French Country style by incorporating light taupes and airy whites and by being paired with traditional furnishings and chic, aged finishes.
A kitchen bar with seating enables the party to stray away from the traditional island hangout and move out of the way of the chef, all the while keeping the mood festive.
This homeowner wanted the house to be decorated using various shades of gray, so rather than wearing out the color entirely, the builder incorporated a trick of the eye in the kitchen backsplash ideas: a mixture of clear glass, black and stainless steel tiles were used to create the illusion of gray.
The open floor plan, as well as the unique staircase, helps to establish the modern feel of this home.
This spacious kitchen comes equipped with a unique oven island—a partial wall that hosts three separate ovens. A high top seating area, with chairs by Kartell, allows guests to gather while the cook works at the nearby prep counter.
This dining room design embraces an open floor plan, which, paired with high ceilings and walls of windows, helps to create a loft feel that welcomes the outdoors.
Interior designers and homeowners alike are straying away from the traditional and are now embracing modern living room ideas.

For this bedroom design, horizontal planks of engineered hardwood flooring were used to create a rustic feel in a guest room.
Dining room decor ideas for this area include reflective gray faux-finished walls and an intricate trellis design on the ceiling, both of which capture the home's "new traditional" style, a design that combines the elements of timeless design with modern touches.
Some good bedroom decorating ideas for a guest room include a soothing accent wall color, paired with accessories. This designer, for example, made good use of an upholstered headboard, bedside desk and matching lamps-extras that will make any family member or guest feel like they're staying in a luxury suite.
This bedroom design makes excellent use of soothing colors and accessories, with the main touch of color coming from a relaxing photo hanging over the bed.
Lighting fixtures, like this chandelier, combine polished nickel finishes with classic shapes to introduce a modern-yet-timeless design. This chandelier's contemporary shape, with its thin, glossy bands, plays against the thick wood shelves and traditional furniture in this living room.
In this kitchen, gray walls and tiling combine with modern fixtures to bring a sleek spin to the home's traditional kitchen colors of tan tones and warm wood.
