Team Jonathan opted for a pair of midcentury modern chairs as part of its living room makeover on HGTV's Brother vs. Brother. The low-slung seating brings a bit of retro flair to the sitting room with a painted brick fireplace.
A sitting area gets eclectic with imaginative pairings of fabrics, furnishings and accessories from around the world. The playful layering of colors and finishes makes for a comfortable, dynamic space.
A pair of children's orange tennis shoes act as a cute and unique decoration on the bedside table. The orange stripe on the bottom of the lamp matches the shoes. A yellow houndstooth pillow adds another pop of color to the blue and white decor. A blue bed frame reaches up to blue wall stripes.
The ottoman catches the eye in this stylish contemporary sitting room set up. The fabric gives a unique illusion of stitching, seems and a handle. The rest of the elements blend together with a more natural design. The neutral chairs are padded with patterned yellow pillows that draw from the yellow used in the colorful rug.
In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the entryway hall and enlarged the living room window to create a more open and bright space. Colorful pillows provide a pop of color against the neutral color scheme of the updated living room as seen on Fixer Upper.
The classic mid-century modern style sofa in the living room has bright throw pillows and a wire magazine rack beside it as decorative elements, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. Yellow tulips displayed in large glass jugs compliment the yellow pillow and add brightness to the room. A distressed, wood country door adds lovely texture in the background.
