There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I'd like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
Marble countertops are the height of luxury and the dark coloring keeps thing completely manly in this creative kitchen from Delta Tracing. Not every kitchen needs to adhere to monochromatic schemes to be more masculine. The mustard yellow countertop in this kitchen cleverly winds around a corner making a perfect space for breakfast or a neat, inspiring work area. Tucking bulky appliances like a stove into the wall makes this gleaming white kitchen seem that much more orderly.
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.
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.
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.
Here's another kitchen that uses wood, this time as a point of warmth among an otherwise cool-toned white and black theme. The inset lighting above the range matches well. White geometric patterns catch the eye immediately! The shadows between each panel compliment the black breakfast bar, grey chairs, and black backsplash.
The molding on the walls in this design marries the classic with the contemporary. This new kitchen is given a rustic feel with whitewashed wood and mismatched floor panels. This design uses an uneven ceiling to its advantage, creating interest with handing light fixtures and angular skylights. Look no further than this kitchen for some inspired overhead lighting ideas.
