Household Basic - Gallery 4

Pink bed linens balance the rustic wood paneling in this Key West, Florida bedroom. Accents of lime green and turquoise play off of the lush tropical vegetation outside.

Painted aqua and pink, the dining table and chairs make a playful statement in this Key West, Florida space. Pine wood paneling from Dade County, Georgia balances out the strong color palette.

Bright, tropical colors radiate from the pillows, seat cushions, artwork, and painted furniture. Set against pine wood paneling, the splashy accents tantalize the eye, bringing the sunny vacation vibe inside.

The generously sized shower in this Covington, Louisiana master bathroom has walls of the same Carrara marble that covers the floors. Nearby, beaded mirrors and criss-cross wall lights hang above each vanity.

To provide ample seating but still allow traffic flow in this Covington, Louisiana living room, a deep sofa is paired with a tailored love seat, both in shades of lavender. A floral rug and coordinating pillows add more color, while an animal-print chair heightens the drama.

The sage green kitchen cabinetry in this Covington, Louisiana home has generous space for dinnerware and pantry items, and a fossilized countertop surface adds a sense of history to the space. The built-in benches in the attached breakfast nook, with cushions covered in easy-care vinyl, are punctuated with block-print pillows in shades of blue and green to bring the outside in.

A custom glass tile "area rug" inset in the foyer sets an artful tone for the house. The warm colors and dark grout make a glamorous statement in this simple Covington, Louisiana space.

This rooftop workout spot is perfect for yoga or a quick workout.

An extra-long bed swing invites lounging on the terrace of this Senoia, Georgia home.

Bird-print curtains add a pleasing layer of pattern to this inviting Senoia, Georgia landing.

Finished with brick pavers and stuccoed walls, this outdoor terrace also affords a bird's-eye view of downtown Senoia, Georgia. A retractable awning keeps it all in the shade, which is always welcome during Georgia's summers.

With the feel of a warm and cozy den, this Senoia, Georgia media room contains rich upholstery and textiles, dark-stained furniture, and a leather wing chair.

This master bathroom in Senoia, Georgia evokes the opulence of an old-world spa with large soaking tub. Large double-hung windows bathe this space with natural light that's reflected by the honed-marble tile flooring. Cafe curtains provide privacy when drawn, while allowing sunlight to enter from above.

This brick-paved courtyard is inspired by Charleston-style homes. Because an urban setting like this tends to "hem in" private yards, it's important that outdoor spaces are as private and individualized as possible. Ornamental planting beds and large potted plant arrangements soften this hardscaped area while lending it some needed color.

Accessible to the indoors through a pair of French doors, the side porch functions much like an interior room, complete with comfortable seating, durable outdoor rugs, and other outdoor-friendly furniture. Inspired by Charleston side porches, it provides a great place to socialize with neighbors or to take in the fresh air while reading a book.

Traditionally, a keeping room is a smaller sitting area typically located near the kitchen. When not in use, the TV is tucked away in a recess above the mantel. It is concealed behind framed artwork that's been divided and hinged behind bifold doors.

Despite this Senoia, Georgia kitchen's sweet, Southern style, all of the countertops, cabinetry, and hardware are from IKEA. A quartz material called Caesarstone protects not only the top of the kitchen island but also the sides from daily bumps and dings. Wood planks, trim, and support brackets give the IKEA stainless-steel vent hood a built-in cabinet look.

Soft greens and browns give this entertaining spot in Senoia, Georgia a cozy atmosphere, while traditional furnishings and fabrics still feel refined. Reclaimed heart-pine pocket doors can be closed to give either the dining room or the kitchen privacy.

An antique mantel painted in an aged, distressed finish gives this Senoia, Georgia living room a focal point. A gray mirror with a slate surround inside the opening gives the fireplace a sense of depth.

The heart-pine floorboards throughout were salvaged from dismantled structures. The crown and trim are finished in Hi-Gloss paint, reflecting light back into the rooms, and lending an air of formality to this Senoia, Georgia home.

A mismatched kitchen island stands out from the discreet cabinetry. Matchstick shades tie the wooden island and black cabinets together. 

In this coastal family room, a vaulted, beaded-board ceiling makes the room feel incredibly spacious and open. Solid orange fabric brings out the orange tones in the natural stain of the wood and mixes flawlessly with a funky green print. 

Black granite countertops create visual contrast in this comfortable, classic kitchen. A sandy brown backsplash, wooden chandelier, and wicker bar stools warm up the black-and-white counterspace. 

Salvaged wood and wrought iron create the unique sliding doors that open onto this porch. Antique bricks complement the weathered wood of the doors.

The hidden storage, sleek finishes, and functional island won this clean kitchen a Southern Home Award by Southern Living. Ebony-stained oak cabinets bring depth to the space but are lightened with white granite countertops and a frosted glass backsplash.

Wallpaper a small bathroom with a subtle print, like a tan and cream cow parsley pattern, to lend warmth.

Mismatched easy chairs and side tables in coordinating colors create a collected, vintage look in this master bedroom. Accents of red break up the cool, soothing tones. 

This sun porch focuses its attention on the view. The furniture doesn't rise above the windows, ensuring as much of the view as possible. The overstuffed off-white sofa is a great place for taking naps or enjoying early evening cocktails. 

In this simple kitchen, green subway tiles run all the way to the ceiling. Open shelving seems to float on the tile and provides extra storage, while sconces are great for task lighting. 

The bow-beamed ceiling in this Cape Cod cottage is designed to look like a whaling boat's hull. The dining room table doubles as a place for a family game of table tennis.
