As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, this great room in a converted barn features a mix of contemporary and rustic elements. An oversized black island overlooks the vacation-like living room, which features striped green chairs and a cream-colored loveseat.
Designer Chip Wade of HGTV's Elbow Room used a sturdy rope attached to the wall with chrome ring fasteners as a rustic stair bannister alongside this staircase, which features clean white risers beneath reclaimed wood treads.
If you're taking your first foray into color, start with a few furnishings in a muted shade. For this makeover, designer Candice Olson added a chaise lounge and ottoman in a deep autumn hue. Pillows in a similar tone pull color into the neutral sectional.

As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, a side table stacked with blue and white accent pieces, a low vase of white chrysanthemums and a vintage globe create a subtle nautical look. Wainscoting painted crisp white is the backdrop for this great room vignette.
