VIP Treatment

"The vibe is all about beachy, modern Americana, so I designed with sandy neutrals and subtle pops of red, white and blue," Taniya Nayak says. Take a look inside, and steal her tricks to turn your home into your very own VIP area!

Ground Work

To make an accent wall with a lot of texture, Taniya cleverly wove strips of laminate flooring through steel pipes from the hardware store.

Drapery Disguise

Floor-to-ceiling curtains on the wall behind the dining table create the illusion of big windows -- or can be used to hide your laundry or storage space.

Practical Purposes

Just like your living room, this space has to multitask! "Thinking through what day-to-day action a room sees and prioritizing that in the design will help you make the most of your space," Taniya says.

Finagle for the Table

"This table was the perfect height and width but the wrong finish, so I gave it a sun-bleached look, like driftwood you'd find at the beach," Taniya says.
