If you like to rearrange the furniture every now and then, consider this great little table from Shaker Workshops. The Harvard Table could do time bedside, sofa-side, as a console, or even as a small desk. We like the Harvard Table not only for its versatility, but for its simplicity. Crafted from solid cherry, it's sturdy without sitting heavy. Its slender, elegant proportions lend themselves to the verticality of Victorian interiors. The Harvard table is a bargain too, if you like to DIY. Finished it's $480 and as a kit only $240. Available here.

For the past couple of years, yellow has been injecting a sense of humor and lightheartedness into interiors, and we're into it. We especially love lemony yellows paired with white. The combo reflects light, feels fresh, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

If you're looking for some design details to add to your space that will create a calm and soothing room, you may find some inspiration in this cozy and simple apartment that mixes a modern style with zen-like accents. From the designer: My client for this project is a busy executive in Playa Vista, California, who is passionate about yoga, his vegan diet, and traveling. He wanted a calm and peaceful retreat after his busy day at the office. Also notable was the fact that he wasn't proud to have folks over to his place previously - he was ready for a home where he enjoyed entertaining his friends and family. To create an eclectic yet modern overall look, I juxtaposed two types of furniture-clean, tailored, and masculine with textural and organic. For a soothing yet dynamic color palette, I used calming neutrals peppered with watery blues and greens in pillows, accent walls, accessories, and the grass cloth on the walls of the master bedroom. My biggest design challenges were a modest budget and an awkward layout of the main living space. We've allowed for folks to pull up dining chairs to the living room sofa during a party, but when my client is home alone it feels comfortable. I selected items that gave us the most bang-for-our-buck and arranged the room for functionality and flow, using materials and colors to create cohesion and calm in the space.

Hello AT, We are just about finished with our DIY kitchen remodel and are eager to move on to our next project - the living room fireplace. Our plan is to remove the fireplace mantel, build out the wall around the fireplace 12 inches and tile over the brick around the fireplace and floor. We want to then put in 12 inch deep, 35 inch tall built-in cabinets on the bottom and shelves on the walls above to the ceiling.... We plan on getting the cabinets in white from Ikea in either Solar or Applad and using a natural stained wood for the top of the cabinets and the wall shelves. The TV will be moved down and placed on the wall beside the fireplace between a shelf and the cabinet. I want to go with a natural-modern look of white streamlined cabinets and lightly stained wood for the shelves. New furniture purchases will be dependent on the look of the room, so that is not a concern.

When people paint their interior brick walls, they tend to paint them white.... But the owners of this Dutch home featured in Marie Claire Maison painted the original brick walls in their house a lovely rich gray that gives the simple room a unique look and looks great against the French zinc chairs and other furnishings.
