• 1 The Teenage Daughter's Room, designed by Palmer Weiss, is one of our favorite rooms in the house. The matching window treatments and wallpaper are a lot of fun, and we especially love the idea of hanging a valence and curtains around a doorway (in this case, the door to the bathroom). It's a cute way to add some drama and symmetry, and would be easy enough to replicate at home.
• 2 Burlap is everywhere in this year's Showcase, and the giant burlap curtain in the entryway, designed by Nicole Hollis, makes a striking statement. But what we love best about it is the giant nautical rope used as a curtain tieback. Somehow this is both rustic and elegant, and it works especially well because the rope motif is echoed in other decor elements throughout the entryway.
• 3 The Guest Bath, designed by Lynn Amon, is a serene oasis. This orchid specimen is just stunning, and the idea of using natural sticks and twigs as orchid stakes is brilliant. The twigs add a lovely architectural element to the arrangement.
• 4 Sometimes it can be difficult to soften the feel of a workspace, but Benjamin Dhong's design of the canopy over the desk in Her Study is a lovely gesture. The canopy is draped over a decorative dowel near the ceiling and anchored to the sides of the desk. A DIY version of this simple design would be relatively easy to try at home.
• 5 The flower vase sconces in this Powder Room designed by Anastasia Faiella are such a sweet idea. We love the way they frame the mirror and bring a touch of whimsy to the room. With a couple of simple bud vases (or even test tubes) and some ingenuity, this would be a fun DIY project as well.
