Create a dining room intimate enough for daily use yet large enough to entertain family and friends. Comfortable chairs, such as these upholstered ones, should be a priority. You might want to forgo the rug under the table for ease of getting in and out of your seat.

When decorating the bedroom think about using soft hues which promote relaxation. The apricot color is lovely in this space. A bench at the foot of the bed or ottoman will give you a place to comfortably put on footwear. Ample lighting above and beside the bed is a must for reading in bed.

This kitchen shows a nice contrast between light and dark elements which can actually help delineate surfaces for your eyes. An island is an important feature to allow for ample workspace. Lighting fixtures should be located at strategic work areas. A pot filler at the stove enables filling heavy cookware safely.

White in the bathroom is quite lovely. Think of decorating this space to go with the style throughout the rest of the home. Lever faucets add ease of operation at the sink, bath and tub. There are many pretty faucets available to fit this requirement. If room allows, add a chair or bench.

A space of one’s own should be a priority no matter if it is a craft or art room or a home office. You’ll enjoy the space so much and can decorate it just the way you like it. This office shows it just takes one little corner to set up “me” space if you are short on square footage. If not, take the spare room for yourself!
