    Rock On
    Designed by Cari Berg
    Eyesores can become focal points. Just look at this large rock fireplace, which was painted white to give this living room a slick rather than rustic feel. On the back wall, two large graphite drawings from Robert Longo’s “Men in the City” series impart an impression of permanent party guests.

    Against the Grain
    Designed by Vanessa De Vargas
    In this kitchen—where exposed I beams, both along the ceiling and in the islans, hint at the home’s industrial, unpolished spirit—many of the appliances, and even the deep industrial sink, were scored secondhand from trusted shopping sources: Craigslist and eBay.
