The importance and purpose of home has evolved in countless ways over the last year-and-a-half, and the 2021 Real Simple Home has adapted and expanded to inspire design lovers old and new.

This year, Real Simple (which is published by PEOPLE's parent company, Meredith) teamed up with Gialluisi Custom Homes for an extensive renovation on a Victorian home from 1902 in Westfield, N.J. Editor-in-Chief Liz Vaccariello offers a look inside the space in a special video tour.

"It's no longer just a place where you eat, sleep and entertain family and friends," Vaccariello she says. "Now, people want so much more out of every nook and cranny and space and room."

The living room (top) was designed by Home Ec. owner Natalie Papier, who Vaccariello notes utilizes Earth tones in a "brilliant use of color" to give the space a "funky feel."

Delia Kenza designed the dynamic kitchen, contrasting dark appliances and top cabinets with silver-grey cabinetry on the lower half. She installed eye-catching marble countertops and a backsplash by Cosentino.

Another bedroom, designed by Nikki Boyd of At Home with Nikki, adopted a similar feel to the main bedroom by utilizing the same wallpaper, but in pink. The room also includes a walk-in closet and what Boyd calls a "clothing care drawer."
