The diva isn't interested in the ordinary. She wants a bedroom that makes a statement as loud and clear as she does herself. Her eye is honed for unusual finds like a fabulous antique headboard and a classic Louis chair stamped with a face and splashed in lime green. An eclectic space gets her creative juices flowing. Creating an impact is second nature to the diva. A room almost entirely in hot pink? The diva does not hesitate to approve a bold color scheme. In fact why would she stop at the walls? The diva never goes halfway – she ensures that the ceiling is in on the act too. A diva knows that a room in all black exudes edgy drama so you'd better believe she is all for it. The diva knows the talents and ways of the past can teach her multitudes so she is no stranger to antiques. She mixes them in accordingly proud of her one‐of‐a‐kind finds.The diva travels all over the world so she is not about to have a bedroom without an incredible view. If she's a superdiva she likely has several of these bedrooms with a view in all sorts of spectacular places.

Whitewash. If you have a truly massive brick fireplace and you are not fond of the color consider giving it a gentle whitewash to lighten the hue. This can be a good compromise for those who do not want to paint their brick as it allows some of the texture and color to show through. You can water down the whitewash even more than was done here to very subtly tone down the color of your brick fireplace.

Plantation shutters. These elegant window dressings have become the perfect solution for metropolitan homeowners who don't want sheer curtains but aren't keen on passersby snooping either. Here their crisp clean lines and white color add to the room's bright breezy feel. The other plus of course is undeniable curb appeal.

You might have selected your appliances earlier in the design phase in terms of manufacturer model number and size but remember that stainless isn't the only option. Some companies offer a vintage finish like this black with brass accents while others offer a wide array of enameled colors. Choices like this can determine the look and feel of your kitchen in one sweeping gesture. Other finish selections to be noted here are the full‐height marble backsplash the farmhouse sink fabric in the upper glass insert cabinets the heavy crown molding and the freestanding island.

Crystal chandelier. It might be all about low‐slung pendants and marquee lights right now but a crystal chandelier is never dated. More than a mere light it adds instant sparkle glamour and just a smidgen of grandeur to any space. Even a budget model – as opposed to an original French rewired antique – gives that extra je ne sais quoi. Don't automatically choose bronze by the way. The jewel‐like version here perks up a plain ceiling and echoes other colors in the room.

While many dressing tables are fussy frilly or just too girly for my taste here I've gathered some of my favorite modern‐looking dressing tables to share with you. Whether you're planning to set up a dressing table in your bedroom in the bathroom or nearby these ideas will surely inspire your space. If you're on the lookout for a dressing table and crave sleek lines the deco design of the table shown here with its wood finish and simple design speaks to those of us with a modern taste. This dressing table in a room adjacent to the bedroom is glamorous without being fussy. If you're considering using a similar setup for your dressing area painting the two spaces the same color will unify the rooms. If you crave color consider purchasing an older dressing table and painting it to fit your needs. If a matching chair isn't included in the deal buy one that fits well with the table and paint it to match. The gorgeous natural light in this bathroom makes it the perfect space for a small dressing table. Medicine cabinet–style mirrors above the dressing table provide storage and give this dressing table a built‐in look. A dressing table chair is the perfect place for a nice bright splash of color. If your prefer to keep things monochromatic upholstering the dressing table chair in the same shade as the wall will make a simple statement.

Try tailored and tucked‐in bunks. Without losing the getaway‐home element this room has a much more tailored look than most bunk rooms. The bedding is simple and tucked in tightly. The tone on tone of whites gives the room a clean and serene feel. Curtains are neatly stacked with a dense fabric. To get this look with a lighter fabric have the curtains lined with a heavier solid material to complement the pattern you are working with. Better yet give your guest bunkers a treat by lining the curtains with blackout fabric. Mix it up. Mismatched bedding can transform the feeling of a bunk room. When beds are snuggled into a small hallway or attic finding not a single matching sheet blanket or pillow brings you back to childhood when the cabin was heaven for old linens dishes and furniture that weren't being used at home. To create this look resist the urge to buy sets. See a pillow you like? Just grab it and continue your hunt. Visit antiques stores and look for old wool blankets and quilts. One trip to the dry cleaner and they're ready for bed.

Retro sideboard. It might not feel as key as a coffee table or sofa but a stylish vintage sideboard transforms the look of a living room (and keeps clutter at bay too). Here a midcentury number adds a quirky retro attitude and provides a handy surface for showing off precious ornaments and pictures. For a timeless look stick to warm woods such as teak or rosewood.
