Now more than ever, our definition of home is evolving. No longer is home just a place to retreat to at the end of the day — home is our base camp, where we work, eat, play, sleep and spend most of our time. The changing definition of home is also why a fusion of transitional and classic decor styles is resonating with so many — it’s warm and familiar while still being adaptable as families grow and change.

In this open-concept kitchen at our Harleigh model at Halcyon, designers Lindsey Wooten and Brittney Gallagher offset warm wood cabinets and barstools with hits of polish in the countertops, backsplash and brushed brass pendant lights. Not to be outdone, the living and dining rooms are comfortable spaces that invite loved ones to stay and linger long after the movie has ended or dinner is over. Discover the must-have furniture and accessories needed to recreate this elegant look in your own home.
