To highlight the color in the space, designers used a neutral color palette to anchor the space and help reflect the natural light from the windows. Mirrors were then added to reflect the color and light, making the space look brighter.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Mina and Karen used neutral gray and brown tones to create a sophisticated oasis. The neutrals keep the design calm, yet warm and inviting, while the patterns on the fabric adds a fun twist to an elegant design. To add color to this neutral palette, the duo added bold paintings and a colorful bird mobile to brighten the space.
This revitalized master bedroom has been given new life. Once a drab space, Joanna added a gray accent wall to give the space texture. Light, airy curtains accentuate the natural light that pours into the space through the large sliding glass doors, softening the space. New end tables and lamps, a new rug and contemporary art put the finishing touches on this elegant Fixer Upper.
To add color to the neutral room as well as create a focal point, patterned tile was added to the accent wall behind the sink. To add a bit of storage and contrast, open shelving was added to the design.
A wall of windows allows natural light to flood this room creating a sunny indoor space with a gorgeous outdoor view. A natural wood ceiling fits beautifully with the soft neutral color scheme. Matching sofas featuring a striped base with solid seat cushions for a mix of texture.
In this bedroom, Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine created a fun bedroom with a Moroccan vibe. The neutral color on the walls reflects the natural light that streams in through open windows, but bright colors liven up the space. Funky throws and patterned pillows adorn the bed, while a modern, green chair rests in a corner of the space. A multi-color ottoman sits proudly in the middle of the room, while an orange lamp sits atop a golden end table. To complete the space, artwork adorns the walls, pulling the unique details of this space together.
Space between the large island and the wood dining table creates a natural separation of the space while still leaving the design open and connected. Full wall cabinets with frosted glass doors on top allow for organized and concealed storage keeping the countertops clear for a clean finish. Natural light bounces off the white countertops for a bright look to the room.
A nonfunctional living room was transformed by creating two lounge spaces with back-to-back couches and touches of dark wood throughout. The space is unified with a neutral wall color and deep red accents.
Dark wood cabinetry contrasts the neutral wall color for a streamlined look. The sleek, clean lines of the shelving unit keep the space looking tidy and trim while colorful vintage artwork brings a playful touch to the space.
A chipped plaster bust paired with a timeworn mirror creates a dynamic juxtaposition in this pale living space. Despite the antique decor, the neutral wall color and minimalist approach to accessories are hallmarks of transitional design.
A gray tufted bench compliments the upholstered headboard joining the fur throw in adding texture to the design. Neutral and white bed linens lighten the dark hardwood and gray tones. Pink shades on the table lamps cast a rose colored light adding a romantic touch of color to the chic room.
Cream walls set a clean and relaxed backdrop for this stylish living room. A shag rug echoes the neutral wall color and softens the dark, hardwood floor. A neutral sectional is given color from cream, red and blue throw pillows. A black tile outline surrounds the fireplace giving off a sleek, sharp finish.
