As seen on HGTV’s Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott designed this living room to match the homeowner’s bright personality. The original cement flooring was stained a warmer color and dark gray paint was added to the walls, while the one wood-clad wall was kept as a feature. The large metal storage unit resembles an old set of lockers, which brings an industrial feel to the space. Two vintage side chairs and an old leather sofa were reupholstered in bright colors and prints, and a star-shaped light bulb installation was mounted on the wall as a finishing touch.
The overall design for the updated room included a mix of dark blues, texture, midcentury-modern lines and masculine touches. These elements were brought in through accessories including white ceramic sculpture, coral and plaid pillar candles.

In HGTV Design Star season 4, Dan and Nathan painted an unexpected and bold graphical design across the walls and floor of this dining room. “I don't know if it's a pixelated map of the islands, stylized crime-scene outlines or a macro image of popcorn but I loveeeeeet!” says designer Candice Olson. “This room is a testament to the power of paint and how it can easily and inexpensively transform a space. We’re not talking simply color on the walls here but rather a big, bold powerful image (of something) that engulfs this space; walls, floor and all – wow! The lumber on the far wall is a brilliant design stroke adding warmth to the cool grays. The uniform, vertical application brings visual order, contrasting the great graphic chaos happening around the table. A Parsons-style table like this looks great but really doesn’t function well for seating lots of people. I would have liked to see a hollow pedestal table with the hole in the center used for low greens/grasses, or as a built-in ice bucket for wine and cold drinks. Right now the tall leaves in the center mean fighting your way through the jungle to see who you’re dining with. A round paper-lantern pendant or two over the table would provide beautiful light for dining and speak to the shapes of the ingenious wall-mounted light fixtures beyond. Small criticism for a room that is truly inspiring.”
