Fit the space. "Because of the size of this kitchen and the height of the ceiling we needed a fixture that not only had the appropriate width but also height" says Kristin Petro of Kristin Petro Interiors. "With its tiered design a chandelier fits the space perfectly. In addition the white cabinetry and backsplash provide a neutral backdrop which lets the intricate style of the chandelier really pop".

Matching lamps anchor each end of the cabinet top; they are an uncanny match to the painting. "When I found these I knew they would be key pieces to the room. They are showstoppers" Ricco says. The warm bronze on the base and hardware is part of a wide variety of mixed metals in the room while the light base stands out against the dark cabinet. The etching even mimics the artwork. The cabinet lamps and painting serve as the main focal point in the room.

After attending approximately 30 weddings in the last couple of years I'm approaching the baby‐boom stage of life. And with that come nursery inquires from friends. No matter what anyone's style age or lifestyle is I recommend Jenny Lind–style cribs and beds. Their whimsical spool detailing can easily work in a traditional transitional or eclectic home. A white Jenny Lind crib pops against the nursery's purple flat‐panel wainscoting. Pink paisley pairs with white Jenny Lind single beds to create the bedroom of every little girl's dreams. Thanks to its simple design Jenny Lind furniture is easy to pair with vibrant patterns. The white crib chain‐link rug and whimsical Roman shade fabric in this nursery prove just that. A pair of Jenny Lind single beds contributes to the vintage feel of this sporty bedroom. With customized bunting a white Jenny Lind crib a pouf and a butterfly mobile Parker's nursery is bursting with personality. The functional Jenny Lind trundle acts as an extra bed for sleepovers. Featuring Delta's Jenny Lind crib this nursery is brimming with charm. Stark white bedding makes a contrasting statement as it dresses a classic navy Jenny Lind crib.

Skylights often come into play as do white walls and floors. Built‐ins help with space constraints as do funny little closets and bathrooms that make use of seemingly impossible angles. There is something undeniably romantic about an attic bedroom. No matter what the style it has an away‐from‐it‐all feeling. Even with a low ceiling an attic room can feel open and airy. White paint helps a lot. So do built‐in cabinets and drawers for hiding clutter. This feminine beauty uses the odd angles to their best advantage – the chandelier is hung to emphasize the height of the ceiling while the space is kept cozy with low furniture floor pillows and wallpaper that extends to every wall. White and bright. The skylight provides the sunlight but the paint color provides the expansive feeling. A white floor is an easy way to lighten a room while taking advantage of the beautiful texture of the original old wood. This saunalike wood paneling keeps the attic‐y feeling while creating a fresh space. Just add furniture. White white and more white and then one big splash of color. So simple and so elegant. You could have a lot of good dreams in this room. One accent wall of horizontal wood paneling accentuates the architecture in this weirdly shaped room but also keeps things simple and spare. Hey if you've got it flaunt it.

I recommend that clients select appliances and sinks during the preliminary design phase which often comes before selecting the rest of the finishes and fixtures. This is so the plans can reflect the proper sizes which will in turn affect the cabinetry layout. Also I recommend picking the type and amount of lighting fixtures during this phase: cans semi‐flush mounts how many pendants over the island and so on in order to complete the lighting plans so the contractor to provide estimates. Most people haven't actually picked what style pendant light yet but at least the decision about number is done.

Clean lines. Floating shelves are one thing but floating cabinets add an unexpected element to a minimalist living area like this one. Hide any clutter in the cabinets and show off only the most beautiful objects.

Rice paper lantern and kids' art wall. Easy affordable rice paper pendant lights come in a wide range of sizes and create a lovely glow when lit. A wall with casually taped‐up children's artwork and simple white walls and chairs add up to a welcoming space where creativity can shine.

Warm gray. For a contemporary twist paint the walls around your redbrick fireplace warm gray. A gray that is too cool or flat would not work as well but with a bit of warmth gray complements rather than competes with brick.
