Designer Samantha Farjo shares a bright and open family home that’s both functional and stylish. See how she combines smart pieces with color and texture for a warm, contemporary feel.

Samantha kept the main floor of this home bright and open for the young family. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining, complete with a statement backsplash, wraparound bar and banquette for casual meals. The family room extends from the kitchen, with a mod fireplace, concealed floor-to-ceiling storage units and cool lighting fixtures throughout. Interesting art and pops of color can be found in the multipurpose living room and dining area, while walls on the second floor are painted in a deep charcoal for a warm, cocooning effect.
