Floor Lamp

Leanne Ford pared back design to just the essentials for a clean, crisp look and easier living. For a full white look, she also opted for blonde wood flooring.

Outdoor Lighting

This balcony in a home feels like an organic extension of the interiors. A bold, metallic pendant light is a great way to jazz up your exteriors. But this isn’t your living room. So to put it in the right context, use nature-inspired materials burled wood or rattan and add a botanical-print throw.

Going for a full-on renovation? Consider adding a living room area with an entertainment center, like this one, to your checklist. Because basements are often unfinished and not yet drywalled, you can run audio/visual equipment for less than you’d expect, then add seamless built-in storage around it.

Bathroom Style

Double sinks call for double mirrors. This frees up wall space for extra lighting between the two mirrors that you wouldn’t be able to have with out wall-to-wall mirror. And if you love symmetry, this is the bathroom mirror idea for you.

Kitchen Lighting

Though it’s often dubbed stark and cold, modern design is all about creating clean, open, functional, and calming spaces, with plenty of room for character and personal style.

Kitchen Ideas

“This house is a collection of things we love,” says designer and homeowner Jennifer Vaughn Miller. “Every piece has a story.” The biggest lesson being that vintage furniture and decor is practically made for shabby chic enthusiasts, but antique beds can be a little trickier to work with (they tend to run on the smaller side, for example). So when it comes to decorating a shabby chic bedroom, opt for a contemporary but vintage-inspired bed frame, like this wrought-iron one. It complements the vaulted ceiling while the full, frilly bedskirt warms everything up.
