By contrast, this classic kitchen with walnut cabinets and a marble tile backsplash has less ornamentation than the previous one, but it's still all about the series of small choices: the simplicity of one cabinet finish and wood species, the decision to run the marble tile all the way to the ceiling and match the same marble on the countertops. By way of a series of small choices, this kitchen reveals its personality and says, "This is who I am: I'm classic, warm, and earthy".

Keim wanted to design a space that would reflect the girl's sweet and energetic personality and fit the style of the rest of the home. Keim and the girl's mother both fell in love with the wallpaper, which dictated the rest of the room's style and color palette. The client trusted Keim, so she was given a lot of room to experiment. While she played around with color and pattern, she carefully choose the furniture so that it would last each girl into her teens and beyond. "I would use those pieces!" she says. The family's 10‐year‐old daughter loves turquoise, so Keim chose a complementary shade of peachy‐orange to help it stand out. "As with most jobs, I take their favorite color and make it the accent color," says Keim. "It usually pops more that way." A custom headboard, grass cloth wall covering, patterned pillows and classic lamps add visual texture and depth to the vibrant space. The tree bookcase was especially exciting for the daughter, and she also loves the special pencil set on her desk. The vintage chair was reupholstered in scraps from Keim's showroom for an eclectic, one‐of‐a‐kind piece. The girls share a large study, a playroom and closets outside of the bedrooms, so Keim didn't have to integrate a lot of storage or play space into these rooms.

"The master bathroom in this project was part of a second floor remodel", says Anat Shmariahu of ANAV Design. "The clients wanted their bathroom to be their 'living room.' They are very busy people, and the bathroom is a relaxing space for them, a time for being together". "For me, freestanding tubs represent luxury, calm and a spalike environment, which is exactly what my clients were looking for. We wanted to make this a spiritual environment so that when you enter you are immediately transported. The tub was actually purchased before we even finished the design. My clients just fell in love with it, and it became the main focal point in this master bath".

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.

"We wanted to revamp this bathroom without doing a costly remodel," says Beth Dotolo of Pulp Design Studios. "By using this European trellis wall covering we were able to give the space a completely new look and tie together the existing finishes".

The advantage of a glass‐top dining table is that it works well with many decor themes. And because it has a reflective surface, it is an excellent choice for a space that might need to look a little lighter and brighter. Glass dining tables are tough, too. Today's versions are made with tempered safety glass, which means the glass resists scratches and heat and won't shatter if knocked. You can also choose glass that is tinted in a range of different colors, even black. Another benefit of a glass table is that you can surround it with versatile seating arrangements, from mismatched dining chairs to multicolored options.

Hotels know this and add a beautifully wrapped chocolate on the bedside table for that personal touch. The bedside table can tell a lot about a person. I love decorating these spaces because they are so personal. Bedside tables are important because they're the last thing you see when turning in for the night and the first thing you see when you wake. These small, intimate spaces have to pack a visual punch, by adding color and texture. At the same time they serve practical needs, like holding our alarm clocks and eyeglasses. They come in all shapes and sizes, different colors and styles. I've been asked many times about accessorizing these spaces. Here are some ideas for what I call the bedside vignette or, in simple terms, nightstands and the stuff we put on them. This is the area where you can really make a statement with lamps. I find that square lampshades, or round lampshades that are 14 inches or less in diameter, work best against a wall. Drawers are always great for storing things you need but don't want to get up for. I love this alternative lighting detail instead of a table lamp. A hanging chandelier on either side of the bed provides beautiful symmetry and frees the nightstand for other personal accessories. A pendant works just as well as a chandelier visually. The light wattage is lower, though, so I suggest using a pendant light in combination with can lighting. Stacked books look great with their colorful binding facing the room and are also good for elevating alarm clocks. This beautiful vignette is perfectly balanced with a lamp, family photos, fresh flowers and a candle.
