Black-and-white checks add a little fun zip to the backsplash behind this kitchen's pot filler faucet. A bowl of bright green apples and a wildflower bouquet are easy ways to bring in more life and color.
To turn the drab powder room into something bold and cheerful, the walls and ceiling were painted navy blue in a semi-gloss finish. The dark colored walls and ceiling help tone down the intense apple green paint of the adjacent guest room.
The fireplace — a rare design element in a breakfast nook — brings a homeyness and warmth to this family eating space. Different shades of green are used throughout the room to emphasize and repeat the bold color choice. Multiple tones of wood are grounding and traditional; the unique chandelier adds a striking modern flair.
Color galore! The blues of the ocean and greens of grass make this eclectic kidtastic living room come alive. Vibrant modern art and boldly printed rug create a whimsical space. The comfy sofa is chock-full of patterned pillows that can change with the seasons.
Contemporary stainless-steel appliances, industrial-style lighting and a metal dining set give this kitchen an edgy flair, while the wood ceiling beam, open shelving and natural stone provide a rustic feel.
Apple green tones are happy and fresh. The wall color creates a bright backdrop for the neutral sofa and coffee table. Decorative elements like complimentary throw pillows, plants and an apple bowl highlight the fresh, green look. The gallery wall breaks up the green so it does not wash out the room.
An apple-green accent wall and graphic-print green transitional rug add a burst of color to this white modern living and kitchen space. A sleek leather sofa and armless Barcelona chairs, all in white, mirror exactly the color intensity of the cabinets and bar for a monochromatic look.
The most striking new feature in this master bedroom designed on HGTV Design Star season four is the bright apple-green walls. In addition, contestant Antonio makes the space more functional for the whole family with a seating area and workspace.
