Not everyone has the luxury of an enormous shower room like the one pictured here, but that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from its striking décor. Large slate gray tiles look great even in a small room, as large tiles generally increase the look of space in confined quarters. In this example, striking color is washed over the top of the sombre ceramics in the form of bright blue LED lighting. LED lights are great for use in bathrooms, and programmable sets will even allow you to change their color to suit your mood or the time of day.
Grey is one of the most popular basic colors that is easy to mix and match and is great for every space. But a grey living room can look too boring and impersonal and adding different hues of greens to it, makes a whole lot of difference. Various shades of green make the space cooler, bolder, fresher and much more eye-catching. Green reminds of natural world around us, and it's perfect if you want to create a fall or a spring mood.
The climbing vines in the slat-covered atrium bring nature into the kitchen, immediately drawing any fresh green ingredients into the overall design theme.

Dandelion is a wonderful color for a space as clean, simple, and minimalistic as this one. It draws up the warm tones from the kitchen's wooden features.
A large area rug creates a separate area in this open living room while gauzy curtains can be pulled closed to prevent the dreaded television glare. A cozy nook for a few friends, the light fixtures in this room remind us of deconstructed bird cages. Molded wood chairs are perfectly modern, though the plush sofa is probably a better place to snooze.
Such a bright and light-filled room often looks a bit cold, so the designers opted for pastel furniture and décor. The furniture is modern, simple, partly from IKEA, which is a symbol of timeless Nordic décor. Pastel pillows, banners, chairs, wall and fireplace décor spruced up a cold space and turned it into an inviting one.
Unless you have the luxury of an oversized closet — or can live with three turtlenecks and two pairs of jeans, Steve Jobs style — conquering your closet is a necessity. Below are some small closet products that will not only help you organize your clothing, shoes and accessories, but also add storage space and beautify your closet.
Irresistibly smooth and balanced. Fixtures centered on the wall of the tub can accommodate an occupant lounging in either direction. A subtle pedestal permits a lighter aesthetic than designs that rest on the floor. The slender faucet lacks any excess or ornamentation, allowing its graceful curvature to capture the spotlight.
Steel and chrome feature in this darker space. Matched by an almost-black art piece at its entrance, only a wooden dining table and chrome swaying lights break the tone. A bit of curve rounds out hard edges. This wave-design bench leads up to an orange-hued enclave in this black-and-silver interior.
Bedrooms are a retreat from the world that should be a place where you can feel at ease after a long day. Outfitting your room in soothing colors is a good way to help your bedroom become a tranquil sleeping space. Start by focusing on high impact areas, like the walls and floor space. Using calming greens, beiges or misty blues works well in areas like these because they create a peaceful, serene feeling that will help you feel more relaxed. Keep your bedding colors simple and avoid any bright colors or patterns that might hamper your sleep. Instead, add in tactile luxuries, like fur throws or sumptuous woolen blankets to add texture to the room.
Perhaps more than any other room in the house, the bathroom is a private retreat. It is a place where we perform important daily rituals and where we take the time to truly indulge ourselves with the wonderful luxury of solitude. The bathrooms collected here use their own design elements but have the luxury factor in common. The bathroom is not a place to skimp and none of these designs do.
