    Our most repinned—and most OMG-worthy—item is this spectacular towel-warming drawer from a bathroom designed for the 2008 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show. With a cabinet front design that blends in with the rest of the furniture-style vanity, it’s a delightfully discreet luxury.

    If there’s something we can all appreciate, it’s great storage space! In this lakeside home, every inch of space was utilized. Drawers tucked under the stairs are discreet and oh-so-fabulous.

    Another sneaky storage idea ranks in our top five most popular pins. Integrated into the kitchen island cabinetry, guests would never know you had a dishwasher until they saw you loading it up after a dinner party. Slick!

    In this breakfast nook, a built-in corner bench and shelves create a cozy place to hang out while checking views from the front windows. Drawers beneath the banquette provide extra storage space.

  • Here’s to fabulous kitchen inspiration! This popular pin shows a pull-out towel rack. The clever idea, designed to blend in with the rest of the cabinets, keeps towels within reach but out of sight.

    If this bonfire couldn't lure your outside, we’re not sure what would. Landscape designer Margie Grace says to create a beautiful, functional outdoor space, you first must determine what elements and functions you want or need. We have determined that we need some marshmallows STAT.

    This elegant outdoor dining and living terrace was designed to feel as though it were an extension of the home’s gracious interiors. The weathered driftwood finish on the wicker pieces gives them a gracefully aged look. The striped upholstery on the chair adds subtle pattern to the space.

    When these homeowners remodeled, they weren’t just keeping their own needs in mind, but their dogs’ too! A redesigned living room now has a windowseat that includes an architectural niche for one of their dogs. What a thoughtful, cozy spot for your pooch!

    This garden gate is simply beautiful. An iron tree inset is an understated, gorgeous addition to the wooden door. We like to imagine that it leads to a secret garden! (But you can see the actual garden here.

    We were glad British-born designer Christopher Peacock chose to share his kitchen with us, and we know you are glad too, because it is one of our most popular kitchen pins. Wide-plank wood floors refinished in a chocolate stain complement the white cabinets, while white marble with an organic pattern of gray blotches adds drama to the space. You can see his entire kitchen here.

  • Architectural designer Louise Brooks is a perennial favorite with our readers, and this photo from her collection of design tips, is a perennial favorite on Pinterest. Says Louise, “Thin ‘English Pub’ brick brings instant, cost-effective Old World charm to any space. We use it on floors and walls, and it looks great in the kitchen, mudroom, wine cellar, or billiards room.”

    Adorable and thoughtfully designed, it’s no wonder this sweet bedroom is popular. The Swedish-inspired built-in bed has a glide mechanism that allows the mattress to be easily pulled out to be made, and steps that are cleverly disguised as drawers. Genius!
