Since bedrooms are not usually as large as common areas, try to keep your holiday accent colors to a minimum. Avoiding overuse of color will keep the look from becoming overwhelming. Here, medium and dark reds were used to update the neutral furniture with the simple addition of throw pillows and blankets.
After removing walls and closing in the deck, licensed contractor Chip Wade creates a gourmet kitchen in the Francis home of Atlanta, Ga. The kitchen features an oversized island that holds appliances, a wood banquette and kitchen table giving the space a circular flow. The space is decorated with white cabinets and light countertops, but accented with warm accent colors, as seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room.
A contemporary nursery is brought to life with a bold, patterned ceiling and vivid blue roman shades. Artwork and throw pillows in vivid colors add sparks of color, while the textured area rug contributes to the warmth of the space.
Surrounded by dark wood panelling, which differentiates this space from the rest of the house, a desk and chair combine to establish a comfortable home office. Below, two stylish bohemian rugs add color to the room and help create an eclectic look.
A two-tier produce basket boasts colorful fruit and vegetables, while a floating shelf boasts colorful mugs. Light wood cabinetry coordinates with the floating shelf, and gray subway tiles provide a neutral backdrop.
Yellow and black provide punchy contrast to the sleek, white of this beach house kitchen. The color scheme creates a playful atmosphere and relates well to the pineapple wall print in the adjacent dining room.
To lay the groundwork for this modern bathroom, designers started with a neutral color palette that would reflect the natural light let into the space from the skylight above. Then, they added modern wood cabinets and a gray countertop to warm the space. To give the room a touch of personality, a gray, black and white penny round tile backsplash was added, and a gray and white chevron floor was laid. In the shower area, the walls are covered in off-white tile with a penny round tile inset that matches the backsplash to tie the space together.
A bright orange color is paired with bright white accents and contrasted with reclaimed wood shelving and stainless steel appliances in this stylish kitchen. A custom pot rack creates texture and useful storage on the wall. A white subway tile backsplash and gray flooring give the space a modern finish.
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.
