Adding a wood and wrought iron railing allows the condo's buyer to adapt the decor to both traditional or modern tastes, as seen on HGTV's "Flipping the Block." Sisters Anicka Marshall and Shauna Williams kept the original, pebble-tile stair risers for added character but used bold color to bring the space to life.
To continue the rugged design of this Alaskan mountain inspired nursery, designers added wood flooring to the space, but with a toddler and an infant around, they needed to create a softer landing for the homeowners' boys, so they added a great cream and tan chevron rug to the space.This rug remains true to the integrity of the design, while providing functionality, texture and comfort.
The organic textures of a modern wood changing table and crib contrast brilliantly with bright accent colors, exciting patterns of chevron and stripes and a comfortable rocking chair with a gliding ottoman to create a fun, vibrant and peaceful nursery.
Light gray walls create a cool tone background for the red accent pieces to pop in this sitting room. A large red sectional is pairs with a red window seat cushion. The large coffee table and ottoman is upholstered with a pattern repeated on throw pillows to tie in the design throughout the room. A frame American flag adds a patriotic touch while complimenting the color scheme.
A wicker headboard and chevron pattern rug add texture to the smooth, bright look of this bedroom. White roman shades blend with the clean white walls for a simple, uncluttered style. A natural wood craftsman style rocker faces the bed. The white bed linens are trimmed with a neutral border and topped with a decorative elephant throw pillow.
A top trick by designers for making a living space feel more homey is adding a fun rug to the flooring, even when you already have carpet. You don't have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on an area or antique rug to fill the entire space. Instead, look for one in a pattern that adds pizzazz, like this cowhide rug that designer Michelle Mentzer with Miles Design Group in metro Atlanta picked up at Ikea. She also got the pictures of landscape art and the chevron and plush accent pillows on a discount at HomeGoods.
A gray accent wall acts as a backdrop for the subway tile shaped headboard design. White bed linens are decorated with a chevron throw blanket and pillows with a finishing sheen. Low nightstands have matching table lamps framing the bed and black and white car art mounted on the wall. A sliding glass door reveals a view to the balcony and lets in bright, natural light.
A wicker basket, metal stool and animal hide rug give beautiful country detail to this bathroom design. Slick white subway tile lines the shower and bathtub behind a gray and white chevron shower curtain. A deep floating sink includes a hand towel rack and long curved stainless steel faucet.
