Tiffany employs a playful color palette with a mix of sleek, midcentury pieces and more contemporary ones for this HGTV Star makeover. She pairs the slab-style dining table with bright, mismatched chairs. The coordinated gallery wall features pop art prints designed by Palm Springs artists.
Since this space is designed for complete relaxation, Tiffany Brooks tones down the bedroom with soft neutrals and sea-inspired hues for this HGTV Star bedroom makeover. The graphic rug softens the hardwood floors and frames the space for the bed and nightstands.
"Compositionally, I think this kitchen works very well," says designer Genevieve Gorder about this HGTV Design Star kitchen makeover. "The layout is open and inclusive to everyone and everything in the house, which is ideal for families and entertaining. I love the idea of Moorish accents running throughout the space and that there seems to be enough storage that was installed correctly in every corner of the kitchen." But she adds: "Where I think they missed — and missed hard — with this particular design was in the very concept. When I look at this space I'm confused with a folkie valance, a latticework design of Moorish descent on the bar and an almost Victorian/turn-of-the-century pressed-tin backsplash. Overall, I think the space lacks focus; it feels weighted down by too much color and busied by clashing patterns."
For this stunning bathroom, designer Candice Olson of Candice Tells All pulls out all the technology stops, including heated flooring, a steam shower and a remote-controlled toilet that features a nightlight, bidet and even a self-cleaning function. Large square tiles form the wall behind the freestanding tub adding glamorous sparkle. Candice brings character to the room by repurposing the homeowner's dresser as the vanity.
The homeowners requested a Jonathan Adler-inspired, family-friendly living and dining room. Their existing kitchen chairs got a mini-makeover with affordable new fabric. Design by HGTV Star contestant Jessie Miller

For the final challenge of HGTV Design Star season seven, contestant Britany gave this once design-less living room a makeover. Her placing of the sectional in the center of the room — rather than against the far wall — puts loungers close enough to watch TV or feel the fire's heat.
HGTV Design Star contestant Britany gave this once boring and mismatched living room a fashionable makeover for part of the final challenge of season seven. She used warm gray walls to tie the space together and give it a sophisticated-but-livable feel.
For part of the final challenge on HGTV Design Star season seven, contestant Britany gave this once functionless dining room an eye-catching makeover. The wallpaper and wainscoting create a high-end look that nods to Britany's trademark graphic style.
Mixing textures and prints is the name of the game when staying with a neutral color palette. Britany designed this high-contrast black-and-white bedding to coordinate with the python-printed leather headboard, and finished the look with black-printed draperies for a one-of-a-kind master bedroom makeover as seen on HGTV Design Star.
Glee creator Ian Brennan's living room was redesigned by HGTV Design Star winner Emily Henderson, as seen on HGTV's Secrets From A Stylist. For the bungalow's decorative makeover, Emily deliberately combined three distinct design styles to reflect Ian's personality. Starting with a '30s masculine look that she's calling "FDR Chic," she then layers two more styles: a fun '60s element called "British Invasion Mod," and furnishings from Ian's travels called "Backpacker Traveler."
