Bright orange accents give this classic cottage a shot of bold style that's traditional on the outside and modern on the inside.

    Everything in this slideshow

    • A New Twist

      This Long Island bungalow is charming and traditional on the outside but bold and modern inside. The front porch is a natural place to welcome guests or enjoy an after-dinner cup of coffee. Classic white trim pops against the blue-gray siding and extra-tall shutters flank three sets of French doors. The stone walkway brings in all shades of the outdoor color scheme: brown, blue, and white.

    • Bringing in Nature

      This beautiful white kitchen is punctuated with natural touches, such as the white oak table, warm leather dining chairs, and cylindrical light fixture. Glass-front cabinets and large, above-sink windows keep the space light and airy. A shelf above the windows is a clever spot for a planter of grass.

    • Sleek and Functional

      Stainless steel appliances and brushed nickel knobs are a modern touch against the white cottage-style cabinets and classic subway tile. The home's original wood floors, which flow throughout the house were restained from a yellowish tone to rich dark brown.

    • Comfort First

      Leather furniture is a practical and durable choice for a home with children. In this living room, brown, orange, and yellow pillows offer a colorful punch to the chocolate brown sectional. Orange leather wing chairs were the original inspiration for the home's interior color scheme. For an extra cozy touch, orange corduroy floor cushions soften up the space.

    • Versatility is Key

      A large, neutral rug is a must-have for any family that loves to play and lounge on the floor. Easy-to-haul boxes are perfect for toting kids' toys from room to room and make for easy clean-up. The modern wood and metal coffee table can easily be adapted to suit kids' playing or parents' entertaining.

    • Colorful Accents

      A smart way to decorate a bathroom is to keep permanent pieces, such as flooring and appliances neutral and then use accessories to add personality. The orange towels, artwork, and waste basket do just that. Wainscoting adds a little texture to the walls and mixes in a bit of cottage style.

    • Clever Makeover

      A multifunctional daybed can be used in a variety of spaces. In this house, a thrift-shop daybed found a home on a stair-top landing. The unexpected, yet peaceful nook is a perfect oasis for getting lost in a good book or for enjoying a couple cocktails with friends. Graphic-patterned red and gray pillows add a shot of cheery color, while a pair of marble-topped tables seems to float atop the gray and ice blue vintage-style rug.

    • Beautiful Bedding

      In the master bedroom, the bedding is truly the focal point. Combining a classic pattern with a bold color is a great way to mix traditional and modern styles. Neutral walls and carpet are versatile and timeless. Dark furniture helps to anchor the space, while identical table lamps and nightstands add balance.

    • Don't Forget the Details

      A statue accent brings a touch of the rich orange color to the nightstand, where it sits next to a sparkly glass lamp. A collection of three prints is hung above the bed in identical white mats and frames.

      A Comfy corner

      A stylish, natural-fiber chair sits in one corner of the bedroom. A white cushion and fun pillow add soft touches. and a red side table is just the right size for a few accessories. The floor lamp is both simple and practical.

      A Corner Office

      An unused closet was restyled to include a makeshift office. A bulky desk would look heavy in this little attic nook, but this one is just perfect. A stainless steel chair is a clean, modern choice and an orange filing cabinet provides extra storage space. Accessories are kept little and light -- an itty bitty pencil cup, miniature desk lamp, small wastebasket, and fluffy white rug.

      Nothing to Hide

      Another attic nook holds shoes, bags, and jewelry. Open trays and jewelry stands are helpful for keeping bangles and baubles easy to find.

      Outdoor Living

      The homeowners love the outside of their home just as much as the inside and their white Adirondack chairs are a great place to relax and enjoy nature. Of course, a splash of the home's signature orange color had to find its way outdoors, as well.
