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.
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.
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.
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.
To create an open, bright space that is still true to the design in the rest of the renovated Spanish Colonial, designers used white as their base color to reflect the natural and artificial light in the space, making it light. To accent the neutral color palette, Spanish tile was added to the backsplash and base of the walls, while a brick floor laid in a chevron pattern helps to add warmth to this bright space.
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.
To accent the neutral color palette in this master bedroom, Joanna, of HGTV's Fixer Upper, added white bed linens with a neutral, floral bedspread, giving the space texture and color. She then added new accent pieces, such as the art piece above the bed and the traditional sconces hanging above each of the new, rustic dressers.
The owners of the Sacred Pepper wanted a dining room that was inspired by their travels, Old Florida and organic elements found in nature, so designers started with a neutral color palette and accented it with cobalt blue to give the space a sand and sea feel. The details in the space, such as the artwork that hangs from the ceiling and the pendant lights over each table, are reminiscent of coral, adding the organic element to this elegant seascape.
