The main floor of this home in Atlanta, Ga., also includes a family room, complete with a cozy couch and two cushioned chairs. A blue painting of a bear hangs over the fireplace and informs the color of the room's accents, like the blue pillow, vase and ottoman.
What if the colors in your year-round decorating don’t look great with red and green? No worries: It’s easy to find holiday baubles and more in virtually every color of the rainbow—even ones that work beautifully with the great room’s western-inspired shades of terracotta and taupe. Also, don’t feel constrained by “traditional” décor choices. Add personality with off-beat and fun elements, like a cowboy hat tree topper.
This beautiful Colorado home is situated on Upper Bear Creek. As landscape designers started mapping out the outdoor spaces, they wanted to show off and work harmoniously with the location's natural beauty.
Although the remodeling budget didn't allow for replacement of these mirrored closet doors, they were refreshed by attaching painted overlays. The teddy bear drawing was made for the baby as a gift by a close family friend.
An ornate mirror anchors the far wall, with circles that complement the dot work of the bear painting. A Buddha statue and side table carved in the shape of an elephant give this space a well-traveled look, just like the living room.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah cut a large serving window out of the wall between the kitchen and living room to create continuity between the two spaces.

Of course, you can’t redecorate entirely for every holiday, but it’s easy to switch your everyday sofa pillows with a few festive finds. This polar-bear pillow is a perfect example: It’s soft, highly textured, and fun!
A green jack bookend, green book statue with tiny tennis shoes and rain-ready teddy bear add adorable decor to the top of this nursery dresser. The decor adds pops of color against the neutral wall and dark wood furniture. A group of fish eye mirrors add a fun and unexpected view of the room.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on new holiday décor every year. Dolls, teddy bears, even a red wagon can come into play as holiday decorating elements. Here, a classic pull-toy gets loaded up with pillar candles and greenery for a fun and festive extra light source.
Unable to completely remove a load bearing wall to create an open floor plan, Sarah Richardson widened a doorway and cut a large serving window out of the wall between this kitchen and living room to create a semi-transitional space. She updated the kitchen with a gray subway tile backsplash, new countertops and stainless steel appliances for a chic, contemporary look. As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential.
As a clever nod to their treehouse style, each one of the three Snow Bear Chalets is named after an indigenous species of tree. The Tamarack boasts two bedrooms and was constructed by the same company that built the HGTV Dream Home 2019. FUN FACT: The tamarack tree looks a lot like a Christmas tree, but it’s 40-feet tall, sheds its needles and thrives on steep slopes!
Make him Pup of Honor and walk him down the aisle with the bridesmaids or groomsmen. Or make her Flower Dog who carries a basket of flowers in advance of the bride. Or the Ring Bearer, carrying the jewelry on a special pillow-equipped dog collar. If doing what she’s told isn’t your pup’s bag, go with Honored Guest who stays out of the ceremony but sits down front with a human attendant.
