Accessories like the lamp and abstract painting add fun personality. A marble top was a simple way to customize the store-bought coffee table. Lamp: Marset floor lamp
An oversized clock makes a dramatic statement on the wall of this dining room, which pairs a rustic wood table with a cool industrial light fixture. A simple orchid adds a touch of elegance to the space.
A monochromatic gray living room gets a jolt of yellow through abstract art and a low chair. The deep sectional makes for a cozy spot to relax, and gray Roman shades dress the trio of windows to provide privacy and block out the light.
A huge umbrella stretches out over this lounge area featuring a pair of brown wicker chairs with neutral cushions. Navy blue and red throw pillows add a touch of color to the relaxing space. Connected to the patio are a covered outdoor dining space and the beautiful backyard with glass retaining wall.
Built-in bookshelves create a colorful display of books along the wall in this bright, white contemporary dining room. A white window seat creates the perfect, sunny spot to cozy up with a book or enjoy a cup of coffee.
The guest suite of the HGTV Dream Home 2012 offers its own private Juliet-style balcony, plus east-facing windows that stream light into the space. An antiqued steel and iron, marble-topped side table serves up refreshments picnic-style to complement the blue and white gingham carpeting.
Connected to the home's main living spaces, a dining room takes advantage of the natural light beaming in to make the space feel open and more spacious. The massive windows also allow diners to take in the beautiful views of the city.
A charcoal gray pattern wallpaper creates depth in this dining room design and allows the decorative white plates to pop. A long light fixture with crystal fringe runs parallel to the wood dining table. A high-back neutral chair at the head of the table faces the curtain-covered sliding glass door.
Much like the Museum of Modern Art, this New York living room feels effortlessly curated, with a Greco-Roman bust and pop art-inspired wallpaper driving the design. A midcentury modern armchair invites the homeowner to sit and reflect in his private gallery.
