Wonderful illustrations, Becky. Sometimes all it takes is just a single item like that painted chest or the rocking chairs to do the trick. Here are some other examples using pillows, art and even faux mosaic tile backsplash to make a laundry room a place you want to be.

There is nothing worse than selecting a sofa with a back too low to be comfortable. I did that one time and one time only when I was a bride selecting our first sofa. Never made that mistake again. That sofa was an expensive, expansive one that sat 4, which is not conducive to conversations. Sit, lie down and rest on a sofa before you purchase is my best advice.

Beyond "looks" of a sofa, construction is very important. I don't know if they are still made or not, but eight-way-hand-tied coils in the seat wear very well & are usually in the better made sofas. Sinuous coil is another type. I forget how the cheaper brands are constructed, but stay away from them! You get what you pay for, and if this is a sofa you will use frequently you want it to last!

The art deco chairs in the library area, the sitting area with that fabulous bar, the stained and pressed concrete counter top in the powder room and so much more attention to detail. What's not to like? I even like that they kept the green window trim and accented it with green foliage of the plants. Besides, look at the door trim in the bedroom-the same green.

I have an old vintage piece that I had my contractor convert to a bathroom vanity. It originally cost me about $100, and, believe me, it is not a valuable antique. As it was, it wasn't a really practical piece before because it had one door on the front and was completely open on the inside. Just an open box. So, it was perfect for fitting in the undermount sink and the p-trap. It was a smidge too narrow for the alcove it was in, so my contractor had pull-outs (like those in a kitchen for spices) installed on either side and finished to match. They're just right for the small pieces every bathroom needs.

As for this loft, maybe the couple hasn't really settled in? There's something of a showroom feel to the space. Things just look a little too new and pristine.

But I love that bar! Love the bathroom tiles. Love the Asian motifs impressed in the concrete counters (actually made me like them when that's one of my least favorite counter tops). Love the ottoman fabric. Love the cloud painting and the barrel chairs.

And, finally, is Ollie a doxie??? He sure looks like one!

Such a practical idea to paper the ceiling in the girl's room. I hope it was peel and stick type to ease the installation process for such an expansive area. Thanks for including the before and after floor plan. I think my favorite room is the dining room with its cream and yellow colors and that corner built-in cabinet. It's shown on the original floor plan, but not on the remodeled plan. Is that perhaps because the owners decided to keep it (so glad they did) after the remodeled plan was drawn, or just an oversight in the drawing?

Yes, Sandra. The border is a continuous "roll" measuring 24 feet long by 6.5 inches tall. It is easy to cut and since all you have to do is peel off the backing sheet, it's also easy to install as well as reposition and remove.

Here's another suggestion that costs less than replacing the cabinets: cover with faux bois or other wood-patterned wallpaper that's very durable and can be wiped clean and comes in a choice of colors. It's not just for walls and can also be applied to wood, metal, glass, Lucite.

Stunning remodel with vibrant splashes of color. With a necessary windows replacement cost of $80,000, they were fortunate to have so many mid-century furniture treasures left behind that they could use. The copy of the island photo turned into wallpaper is a unique personalization. We had a customer who did the same with an antique print purchased in India. It was enlarged and customized for use in the kitchen in a weekend cottage. Be sure to scroll on the picture for a larger view of the room height and shape.

Like the room in the first photo, this room is just the width of the built-ins around the sofa. A bright faux padded harlequin design wallpaper adds the punch. A painted piano bench adds more color in addition to storage. The second photo shows the sofa sans slipcover and a pillow matching the artichoke element over the wallpaper. The artichoke is the same removable and reusable wallpaper as the harlequin beneath it. Both can be easily changed.

Dura Supreme Cabinetry - that is GORGEOUS! I love that the piece draws your eye to it, so that you then notice the lovely backsplash and the island stool. It's a beautiful complement to the rest of the room, and adds some warmth.

I have just acquired (for free!!) two lovely end tables - a standard one-drawer one and a drop-leaf one. They're a really (really) dark wood, and I can hardly wait to get them painted. There are some things I would never paint just because the wood itself is too beautiful to cover, but those are the exceptions for me. I'm not a huge fan of the antiqued look, but I do like a good, creative use of multiple colors like different colored drawer fronts if the colors don't fight one another. For folks a little afraid of paint, there is also the option of removable wallpaper - basically, peel and stick. I'm doing our stairs now - the treads will stay natural wood, and the risers will be papered.

Container planting solves many garden design problems but just remember your container plants may require extra attention to watering needs unless you install a wand sprinkler system. The potted plants below require watering every other day during the summer but were the solution to protecting the water in-flow into the pool from being tripped over once we removed the diving board in a deck remodel.

Regarding before photos, I feel lucky when the pros have any photos to share and simply upload what they give me. No one is trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes, we are just sharing what we've got. Often they are ripped from the old real estate listing or a client's personal photos. At best someone barely remembers to be take them moments before demolition begins. I appreciate John DeForest digging these up to show the us the differences.

As a side note, back in the Stone Age when I was in architecture school, we had one digital camera for the entire population to share (it was a recent invention and cost thousands of dollars), and a scanner or two in the entire building, so we used this weird stuff called film and had it developed. I would often opt for black and white film for site studies - it was more expensive, but seeing things rendered in black and white always allowed me to see patterns, lines and spaces that color distracted me from seeing. Most of the site studies I pinned to the wall when presenting my projects were in black and white, whether they were prints or cheap black and white blow ups from the copy machine. It was also easier to draw right on top of the black and white when coming up with design ideas - like mapping flow and systems with colored lines to better understand the site.

So the chevron size does not change depending on the size of the wallpaper?

Wow - these are all so inspiring. That French Country sideboard has my heart soaring!

This is one of our favorite entryways that we custom-made a fixture for. It was all about highlighting the high ceilings for them. :)

Houzz Tour: A Modern Take on a Montana Log House

This is the most intriguing habitat that I have ever seen on Houzz. Just stunning. The workmanship of the stonework and of the intricately stacked logs is just amazing. But really hard to hear that there are NO building codes in Montana. Did I read that right? I am against frivolous codes but many of them protect all of us from ruin...i.e. fire.

very appealing aesthetically :-) however, for we who are mere mortals without lots of play money, might I suggest this is one of those cutting edge designs not too wise to recreate without some effort put into the details..... having some experience living/maintaining a cordwood home, it requires lots of maintenance. exposed ends will check as they age, especially the softwoods. this requires lots of caulking or staining or filling, depending on your design/theory on preserving the wood. it's unfortunate that the design has what looks like many linear feet of exterior cordwood with absolutely no roof overhang, so the snow & ice will build up on every horizontal projection of the logs. also- not seeing any sort of mortar or chinking in the cordwood stack- so either it's extremely recessed, (again inviting stuff to sit on the wood,) or non-existant, and thus no insulative value. the article mentions a double wall, with a moisture barrier, which could be fantastic, or dreadful, depending on the execution. cordwood needs to breathe on both side to dissipate the moisture than works its way through the wood along the grain. if it can't dry out at both ends, it can rot on the hidden side for a long time unseen.
also- as pointed out above- people who have lived with wood burning appliances are usually pretty aware that firewood inside your home can pose a hazard to you & your home- it can introduce wood-infesting bugs like carpenter ants etc, as well as molds, spiders etc. and make cozy nooks for rodents etc.

this kind of cutting edge stuff is vital to build smarter and more efficient in the future, but it's not without challenges.... (btw- cordwood wall itself isn't cutting edge- been around awhile...)

RE: Seating...we feel your pain! Another great and inexpensive look are these acrylic chairs, this installation has them with sheepskins and we have a faux polar bear that we use as well for adding texture (which is washable!). Something fun and different.

Julia, here's a few additional suggestions. Our 3T-tots, tweens and teens- designs include balloons, butterflies, fireflies and personalized growth charts. Our Flower Power, in 16 colorways, 3 roll sizes which are 52" wide allowing for fewer seams, and also available in border, backsplash, bookcase backing, and stair riser sizes, allow parents to decorate a room for now and offers easy removal for change. If the little one has a creative bent, we have just the thing for creating an original piece of art. BTW, Flower Power could see her well into adulthood, but I'm guessing you'll want her to find her own abode then.

The homeowner is clearly talented in bringing her design ideas to an old home for a modern family. Kudos to her for her vision.

I love old homes and this one has a great new family who will take care of it. Preserving the good parts, updating the parts no modern family could tolerate and giving it such gorgeous interior design is what we wish for ALL old houses. They are our heritage and this family respected that while making it their own.

Thanks, Becky, for taking me back down memory lane to my first trip to Paris 49 years ago. My husband and I couldn't afford to stay at L'Hotel but lodged at another hotel ( Hotel d' Nice, which, alas, is no longer in existence) across the street and a few doors down on Rue de Beaux Arts. It was a magical time and place to be: opening the doors to the balcony in the morning, seeing people pedaling their bikes with a loaf of fresh baked bread in the wicker basket, smelling the just brewed coffee from the hotel dining room and enjoying a croissant and café au lait on that tiny balcony- magnifique!
We did dine at L'Hotel and had drinks before in the "catacombs". There were live ducks in a pool in the dining room. I hope that's no longer the case.

I loved our stay at L'otel for our honeymoon and ever since then have searched for more inspiration from the interior designer of the hotel, Jacques Garcia. Recently, whilst lusting after some images of a new hotel that has opened in Manhattan called The Nomad (picture attached), I realised I had stumbled across another gem by the same designer. A little more pared back but the sensibility is the same! Can't wait to stay there too!

Here are 3 examples of how one green element can add to the overall appearance of a room. The artichoke can easily be removed to change the décor and has the extra advantage of not damaging the wall AND being reusable.

Thank you for this article. Green has been my neutral for years. Imagine living in Rainy Seattle, WA and painting a room beige or, heaven strike me, grey. Perhaps in another region where the sun is intense. Green is the color of balance and nature. It helps us concentrate and even helps us heal. Long live green. Let's all take a lesson from nature and use more green. The world would be a happier place
