In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.
For more counter space, this kitchen utilizes a huge natural wood island with its own sink. The bright yellow where gives the kitchen a very youthful glow. With a small breakfast area and plenty of cabinetry, this urban kitchen would be perfect for a couple. A more modern option for kitchen islands, this one uses a bright white countertop and funky chairs.
Such showers have many advantages, and the first is a chic modern look – what can be more modern than clear glass? Second, they seem to take no space because glass makes the bathroom and shower merge into one, and it's essential for small bathrooms. Third, a glass-enclosed shower has a cool spa look, which will help you to relax after a long and hard day. Glass is a perfect material for a seamless look and it brings style.
Finding the right pillow — as well as sleeping on the wrong one — can be a real pain in the neck. Ironically, choosing your perfect pillow can force you to sacrifice precious sleep as you peruse the far reaches of the internet in the night in search of the right one (we've all been there).
It can be tedious to keep checking your phone for the time. In this living room, that won't be an issue. A calming beige and brown complement natural wood paneling on the walls and floors in this sweet and simple living room. Natural sunlight plus a white color scheme keep this lofty living room so open you might feel like you're literally on a cloud.
While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
Keeping the shelving in the island open in this sunny kitchen make the whole room feel bigger. A cool ceiling and plenty of windows give this kitchen a special slant of its own. You don't need to have a lot of room for a beautiful, modern kitchen as this simple white option proves. The circular rug in this kitchen area manages to create a separate dining room without adding any walls.
Decide on your room style first: modern, minimalist, retro, mid-century or beach. Neutral beige shades will become a perfect soothing backdrop for almost any kind of room. If you are looking for a moody ambience, opt for rich brown shades or dark brown. Brown shades are more often used for walls, floors and furniture, while blue can be added as accents. Coastal-inspired rooms look amazing with brown and blue, opt for rich blue shades and calm brown ones, beige or other neutrals.
A clean and stylish kitchen can be more than a status symbol. When you have a beautiful space like the kitchens featured here, it can provide that extra encouragement you need to prepare a beautiful meal for family and friends. The more you cook and create, the happier and healthier you are. These black, white and wood kitchens could be just the inspiration you need to make a change in your life, too.

And what better way to relax after a decadent bath than to dry off in the setting sun on this private deck.
