Light blue painted floor to ceiling beadboard adds cottage style warmth to this transitional bedroom. An airy blue motif carries from the natural light illuminated walls to the quilted bedspread where pillows splashed with color interrupt but do not disturb the calm flow of the space. A white tufted headboard, modern floor lamp and plush area rug add extra bits of texture and surprise.
Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines completely transformed the Jonklaas's kitchen by removing the wall to the dining room and creating a more open flow to the space. They decided to keep the original cabinets, but to paint them bright white and to add new hardware. Wood floors, granite countertops, a natural stone backsplash and stainless appliances were installed. The outdated wallpaper was removed and the walls were painted light blue. Two modern pendant light fixtures illuminate a new kitchen island, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Littles get their own bathroom with a dressing table, sweet-as-can-be round window and mosaic tiles in a pretty blue-and-white pattern on the floor. Blue painted beadboard gives the walls depth and texture.

She used natural materials and a lighthearted color for the backsplash, and the seeded glass cabinet doors bring an extra touch of softness.
Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's "Sarah's Summer House," went for rustic charm when designing the living room. The room seems as if it's perched over the water with its wraparound windows. She arranged the seating around the perimeter of the room so each seat has the perfect view of the water. The shades of blue in the upholstery represent the water, and layering the different patterns, like ikat, floral and striped, gives the room a lighthearted look.
A traditional upholstered settee creates a cozy sitting area by the window in this transitional bedroom. Vertical lines of the blue beadboard walls mimic the ceiling, mixing cottage design with more contemporary elements like graphic drapes and colorful throw pillows.
