    Not only does the new island create a natural barrier between the kitchen and dining room, but it also adds ample storage and a food prep-zone.

    To keep the color palette uniform throughout the house, Jonathan and Scott brought in a gorgeous dark wood dining table, accented with pops of teal, white, and silver place settings.

    The Scott brothers made the dining room even more illuminated and spacious by knocking out the walls between the kitchen and dining rooms. They created a cohesive room-to-room flow by replacing the light floors with a richer hardwood. To balance the new floors and keep their design elements consistent, the brothers brought in light beige chairs with patterns and details that coordinate with those in the great room.

    By knocking down the great room wall and raising the floor to be level with the rest of the house, the Scott brothers successfully made the room bright and airy. While the lack of wall takes out the obvious barriers between the great room and kitchen, the strategically-placed seating and vibrant rug create a clear separation in living areas.

    Another artful mix of styles, the Scott brothers placed these funky blown-glass vases on top of a rustic wooden chest. As a result, they achieve an aesthetic that is warm, but not stuffy.

    The Scott brothers brought the couple’s upright piano into the room to make the space even more personal and inviting. Although Drew doesn’t seem to find Jonathon’s tune quite as inviting as the great room decor.

    Craig and Laurel Perler purchased a spacious three-bedroom, three-bath home in Armonk, New York. The only problem? It was in serious need of some updates. Luckily, the Property Brothers stepped in to make the home a gorgeous, open space the entire family can enjoy.

    Dark gray paneling around the fireplace provides visual contrast with the light walls. Limitations in the renovation budget precluded adding larger windows, but the existing windows were updated with new trim also painted in gray.

    This antique style fixture was used as a unifying theme in several of the renovated spaces including the dining room, foyer and master suite.

    The existing brick fireplace was retained but updated with black interior, new trim in dark gray and a reclaimed wood mantel.

    Sara's tastes run toward a nouveau classical look with an affinity for ornate furnishings and French antiques. The combination presented a decorating challenge for Joanna who frequently leans more in the direction of farmhouse country and rustic themes. This new foyer – highlighted by black and white marble floors, rich textures and dark gray paneling – offers a mix of contemporary elements and old world touches making for a carefully integrated look that marries comfort and style.

    The new master bedroom is done in soft gray with warming wood tones, ornamental sconces and a few colorful accents.

    Though the renovation was a thorough update, Joanna incorporated older furnishings and antiques to deliberately avoid the appearance of a new build or simple remodel.

    The kitchen is enlarged and remodeled with a simple design and fresh, clean aesthetic.

    The renovated master bedroom included restored original hardwood floors and a new accent wall with rough milled cedar planks for a decidedly country look.

    Sterling Zan is a fan of copper, so Joanna incorporated a copper farmhouse sink and brushed copper fixtures.

    The drop ceiling was removed and exposed wood beams added for a coffered effect. New stainless appliances were added as well as all new lighting and special features such as a wall-mounted pot-filling faucet and a custom vent hood with copper accents.

    The home's original dining table was salvaged and restored by furniture designer and woodcraftsman Clint Harp.
