"My inspiration for this bathroom was modern elegance", says Jamie Herzlinger of Jamie Herzlinger Interior Design. "Modern can sometimes get very cold, but freestanding tubs celebrate luxury and sensuality. So I personally always feel that if you have the time to enjoy a bath, whether alone or with someone else, it’s an occasion that needs to be celebrated. Nothing beats taking a bath in a freestanding tub for a sensual experience". Try this in a smaller bathroom. "Freestanding tubs, or claw‐foots for that matter, have an essence about them", says Sophia Cok of Design Associates. "They have the ability to turn bathing into a luxurious experience".

Creating an area above a large bed for childhood keepsakes, trinkets and books will make the room feel more cozy and childlike. If you're worried about a big bed taking up too much space, consider painting the wall behind the bed a nice dark color. This will give the illusion of depth and make the room appear larger. Another great trick to add the illusion of space is to use lots of mirrors. I love the brightness the two mirrors flanking this large bed bring to the room. If you have the square footage, lining the walls with multiple queen‐size beds is a great way to sleep a crowd. This room is perfect for slumber parties and late‐night pillow fights. This space looks like it was just transformed into a more mature design. The map keeps it playful, but you'll be happy to hang on to the furniture long after your child has left for college. When choosing furniture, go for timeless, clean pieces your child will be happy to keep well into adulthood. Keeping the room colorful, as with this bright pink accent wall, will prevent the space from becoming too grown‐up. This cute nautical‐themed room would be great for a growing boy. The materials and patterns feel youthful but classic, so it works as an instant guest room when necessary.

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.

Although I mentioned not wanting to buy expensive art to get tripped over, I have no problem with it being displayed on the wall. The piece shown in this image is so gorgeous and really sets the mood for the room. Nightstand space comes at a premium. Books, clocks and phones all vie for room. Bedding is expensive, especially once you find the perfect duvet, pillow shams, throw pillows and so on. I've often thought of a neutral color scheme as being boring and safe. When I think of custom drapery, my mind often envisions heavy fabric overpowering a room. Area rugs are often used to tie a space together. I love how this rug is the room's focal point. Generally speaking, most nightstands are round or square. Who says you have to follow those rules?

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.

White subway tile is ever popular, but a style that has been gaining in popularity in recent years is to pair white subway tile with dark gray grout in a running‐brick pattern. The resulting look defines the outlines of each tile, adding depth and interest to a space. The wider set the tiles are, the more pronounced the outline effect becomes and the bolder the look.

Books can be one of the great pleasures in life – staring at an overburdened bookcase with tomes spilling onto the floor is not. Aim to keep only the books you love and those you will read again, and let go of the rest. Your living room will thank you.
