From the outside, Deb and Mike Crawford's Colonial blue split-level home in Severn looks a lot like most suburban houses. But if you walk in, go up the stairs and turn left, you'll find a master bedroom that's far from your typical square with windows.You pass through a set of French doors into a room that appears to be glowing. A skylight and an expansive Palladian window that takes up much of the north wall allow natural light to pour in, and the pale yellow walls reflect that light. Walk between two columns and you'll see the Crawfords' four-poster oak bed; above the bed, the ceiling rises to a peak, accentuated by two crossbeams.

"I spent the second night of my honeymoon in this house 57 years ago," Mary Louise Gramkow said, recalling the home on the hill that her mother-in-law had rented for the newlyweds before they left for Alabama. Gramkow came upon the house again about 15 years ago, as she and her husband, Edwin, were looking to renovate an old home. She asked the owner if it might be for sale. "It would be for you," he said, and a deal was struck, she recalled. The Gramkows set about rehabilitating and enlarging the Howard County farmhouse that dates to at least 1899.

Anne Arundel natives Pearson and Lisa Covert are fans of historic properties, the older the better for Pearson Covert. Moving from Annapolis to Baltimore four years ago to be closer to their daughters' school, they looked for a place with a past. After all, they had been living in Annapolis in one of the oldest townhouses in America, built in 1774. "I always said I wanted something a little newer," said Lisa Covert. So when they found a stucco house on a corner lot in Homeland, built circa 1790, Pearson Covert said, "We're going in the right direction."

Marsha and John Wise bought their home six years ago after losing out on another house in the same neighborhood because they had not made an offer quickly enough. The couple had fallen in love with the community of Hunting Ridge, a historic district near Baltimore's western edge known for solid homes in varied architectural styles amid huge trees and rolling terrain. They really wanted to live there - enough to write to community leaders, inquiring if they knew any homeowners in their midst who would be interested in selling.

Mixing old-world antiquities with modern amenities makes this double-wide rowhouse a hidden gem in the heart of Canton. The conservative brick exterior of the house serves to accent the meticulous attention to detail on the inside. The house successfully blends multiple design influences and color schemes to create a warm environment. Owner Dave Cash has spent more than three years in the house, but is moving to Los Angeles to start his own record company. Before purchasing the house, Cash was looking for an end unit with windows, but after seeing how much space the double-wide rowhouse offered, it was an easy decision.

Pools are a popular feature of summertime, but what if you could swim year-round in 80-degree temperatures in your own home? Paul and Mary Clark can. Their house in Monkton has a 40-foot indoor pool with a waterfall, all in a climate-controlled environment. A wall of large, picture-glass windows and four skylights bathe the room in a combination of sunlight and sky. The first-floor master bedroom suite opens onto the pool area. "You can hear that waterfall all night," says Paul Clark who, along with his wife, bought the house about five years ago from the original owners, who custom-built the house in 2001 as a Tuscan-style retreat.

With a brick exterior and white marble steps, the Federal Hill rowhouse of architect Jiyun Park and Dr. Eli Perencevich looks like the epitome of historic Baltimore. But inside, the house blends the old and the new. Traditional wood plank floors are underfoot throughout, and the master bedroom features an exposed brick wall. The kitchen is sleek, modern and airy; the home is warmed by tinted walls that are brightened by light streaming in. "The kitchen and the deck are probably the most enjoyed features of the house," Park said.

For homeowner Michael G. Curry, it was the beautiful city views that drew him to trade a 40-room Guilford mansion for a three-bedroom condominium in HarborView Tower. "No matter where you are in the unit, you see the skyline, you see the water -- even in the master bath," says Curry, who purchased the unit about five years ago and has completely renovated it from top to bottom, removing walls to better configure the space. The condo, one of the few three-bedroom models available at HarborView, has an open floor plan with multiple rooms offering city and Inner Harbor views, including the living area, the dining room and the master bedroom.

Take everything you know or think you know about condos and throw it out the window, because this space is not like any of the others. It's clean and modern and spacious. And it has only two bedrooms. "It has a sense of openness," says Yasmin Dolan, the Coldwell Banker Realtor listing the property at the Warrington in the Guilford neighborhood in Baltimore. "Totally contemporary." Owners Albert Aaron and Myrna Kaplan say credit for any fabulousness goes to California interior designer and architectural guru Sam Cardella, who oversaw a complete renovation of the unit last year.

My small master bedroom is furnished with simple, light-colored maple pieces. Their style can best be characterized as nondescript. Is it possible to give the room a more serene and modern look while keeping this furniture? The room contains a small lounge chair that could be re-covered. You can achieve the look you want simply by taking the room in the direction already established by those light-colored pieces. Put a white slipcover on your lounge chair, for starters. And then buy an upholstered headboard, perhaps box-tufted, in the same or similar fabric as used on the chair.
