Under the desk sits a large cotton and wool upcycled patchwork rug made from old and used handmade traditional Anatolian carpets with different shades like raspberry, blue, brown and gray. Two retro faux-fur pink accent chairs with metal legs for visitors at the desk coordinate with the room’s blush ceiling.
A bright yellow accent wall, green sofa, and blue chairs sets a fun and imaginative tone for this modern, colorful playroom. Gray carpet tiles are a kid-friendly alternative that are easy to clean and replace. The kids' drawings are framed and hung on the wall as the highlights of this play place.
This transitional living space has bold plaid wallpaper as the accent wall behind a sleek black entertainment center and wall mounted flat screen. The gray color scheme is carried throughout the space with patterned carpet and sectional sofa. The blue and yellow throw pillows add color and contrast making this space comfortable and inviting.
This restful bedroom is like a breath of fresh air, with its soft, neutral palette and soaring ceiling. The blue hues used in accent pillows pull the colors of the sea, visible through the broad wall of windows, into the space. A shag carpet and fuzzy pillow add texture that brings added interest to the mostly neutral space.
The textured gray walls in this modern living room mix well with the gray shag carpet separated by a long, short white shelf. The coffee table is gray stone with a diamond pattern on top. A solid purple chair and bright blue feathered wreath provide a strong pop of color against the gray.
Designers added a blue-gray wall to this space in order to create a divide between the new living and dining rooms. The existing carpet was removed and natural hardwood floors were installed, in addition to a mustard yellow area rug and stainless steel dining table. White and brown geometric curtains frame the dining room window.
The stairs to the loft’s second bedroom were painted in a durable porch paint, then a tightly woven carpet was tacked down to minimize scuffs (and noise!). The pretty blue weave is tough enough to withstand daily use but will be very easy to change out down the road, should the homeowner want to change up the look.
To keep the high-contrast look of the dark blue and the bright white consistent throughout the bedroom, its existing wood shutters were kept white to tie together the chunky molding as well as the white seen in the FLOR carpet tiles. Wood shutters are a great way to add privacy and architectural interest to a room.
Susan Brunstrum created the perfect environment for this cozy media room in her Park City, Utah vacation home design. She selected a pretty shade of blue for the walls that integrate well for television viewing. The cream-colored furniture and carpeting give the room a simple but stylish aesthetic, and the stone fireplace in the corner of the room further complements the space.
Less is more a lot of times, and this is a prime example. The modern shape of a lounge chair and ottoman need no more than a sexy end table to hold their own in the corner of this master bedroom. The patterned carpet and soft blue-grey tones in the room are a reflection of the Atlantic waters swirling just outside the sliding glass doors.
Guest rooms are often catchalls for things that don’t quite go with the rest of the house. But Ariene has designed her guest suite to be a full-on retreat for anyone staying with her. The blue walls, sand-colored carpet and wood furnishings create an island feel that’s supported by the palm leaf art and canopy bed. Colorful textiles throughout the space keep the color palette lively and add to the tropical aesthetic.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the Purks' baby on the way. The old French Doors were removed to create a solid wall for a crib or bed placed against. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim. Soft carpeting will be perfect for a child's room and metal crates hang on the wall and serve as storage for stuffed animals. A comfortable side chair is an inviting place to sit with the baby, and a crystal chandelier was removed from the original dining room and installed here in the nursery.
