Interior Design — Expert Decorating Tips For New-Build Homes

Designer Jenna Cadieux shares how she transformed a new-build into a warm and inviting home for a family. Get her decorating advice and tips for using layers and texture to bring coziness to spare, modern spaces.

To divide the open floor plan, Jenna used light fixtures, area rugs and drapery to delineate the living room, kitchen and dining area. In the chef’s kitchen, three geometric brass pendants hover over a large island, bringing contrast and warmth to the space. A mango wood dining table grounds the eat-in area just off the kitchen, and is accented with a mix of chairs for a more casual, laid-back look. The living room boasts a marble fireplace with built-ins on either side, which Jenna brightened with stylish vignettes. Caramel, pecan and ivory tones layer color into the room, while a large L-shaped sofa provides comfort for the entire family.

  1. Simply gorgeous!! The brass pendants are exquisite, and all the seating looks very comfortable. This space is very warm, as it was intended to be. It would have been great to see the bedrooms and bathrooms, too!

  2. The family room is optically beautiful but no comfortable. Sectionals are awkward for lounging on and the accent chairs, while really cool, are not chairs you can sink into and watch television. That said, this may be more of a conversation space and any serious, game day, tv viewing takes place in theater room or other space?
