Designers Rachel Keach and Diane Ernjakovic of One Three Design share a bright main floor they designed for a young family. See how they used architectural detail, warm neutrals, pattern and color to update the open-concept living room, kitchen and dining room.

The family room has 18-foot ceilings, so Rachel and Diane added wall panelling to draw the eye up. Neutral-hued walls create a bright, yet intimate atmosphere, while mid-to-dark fabric on the furniture ensures the space is pet and kid friendly. Though there was no budget for a kitchen reno, a fresh coat of paint on the cabinets and new hardware gives the space a facelift. In the dining area just off the kitchen, an airy light fixture modernizes the existing wood table. Two plush chairs bring a bay window to life, making it the perfect nook for a morning coffee.
