The small choices in this kitchen include sleek appliances, noninvasive lighting, and a flat‐planel door style on the cabinets.

Once I've worked with the client to pick the collage of materials for the kitchen, we lay these out to focus on paint color. The reason this phase often comes bit later is that the kitchen might be under construction and still have the old paint color on the walls. The floors may be covered in that pinkish‐red rosin paper, which can affect the look of the color on the walls.

For those who don't stay put, a heavy table may prove to be an annoyance, weighing you down each time you move. If you fall in love with a metal or marble table, don't be discouraged from buying it, but do think about how you might safely transport it. As suggested above, choose a small, round marble table, or go for a wooden table with detachable legs. If you are looking for a table to suit an urban‐industrial decor theme, don't go all‐out with a (heavy) metal table but consider a (lighter) wood table with some metal design features, such as the one pictured here. Plastic as an alternative to wood is light and can be molded into some cool shapes, but be aware that the color can fade over time.

If you have cupboards crammed with old VHS tapes or hundreds of jewel cases for CDs that are already loaded into your computer and other devices, it is high time to purge the old stuff.

With its panoramic‐size window and glorious outlook to a countryside vista, this sleek dine‐in nook is a stylish way to eat at home.

But switch out that crib and add some toy storage, and it's also perfect for a growing girl. The books and knickknacks on the shelf will change, but the bright colors, multipurpose furniture and neutral walls and floors can grow and morph until college. A black wall makes for a very sophisticated nursery (with lot of opportunity for bright pops of color). Use chalkboard paint and this becomes the perfect graffiti wall for ages 2 to 18. Another black accent wall in a nursery. With the classic Eames rocker and the simple, neutral decor, this baby room could could last through college. Bright walls and fun patterns make sense for a long time. The black and white ceiling stripes stimulate an infant's brain, and they still make sense for a teenager who wants to turn the room into a punk rock palace. More classic furniture combined with bright color. The Frames wallpaper by Taylor & Wood transforms the wall into an interactive, constantly changing canvas.
