The chocolate brown walls in this bedroom recede into the background, actually making the small room appear larger. The slipcovered headboard and crisp white bedding add a contemporary, hotel-like feel and provide contrast against the antique desk and console.
"Just because it's a masculine room doesn't mean the bed has to be boring," says Genevieve Gorder, judge for HGTV Design Star commenting on the Girls' team bedroom design. "Add some dimension with a headboard so we don't feel like we're in college."
Loads of windows fill this Colorado penthouse with light, and neutral walls further the home's bright and airy feeling. In this transitional sitting room, dark brown accents break up all the white, and a purple-tinged mineral sculpture adds drama to the modern coffee table.
This neutral living room features pops of vibrant orange color, as seen in the sofa pillows and upholstered armchairs. A dark brown accent wall encases the fireplace, while white built-in bookshelves are positioned on either side. A multicolored area rug adds a lively finishing touch.
Sliding glass doors lead out to the rooftop balcony with stunning views of the distant skyline. A modern leather armchair and chrome floor lamp make up a dedicated reading area in front of the fireplace.
A custom steel “I” beam was fabricated and installed to allow for an open concept in the century old home. Interior walls within the original space were eliminated, allowing for greater traffic flow, natural light and efficiency.
An oversize modular sofa and two tailored, tufted armchairs offer ample seating in this spacious, yet cozy traditional living room. Built-in shelving offers loads of storage, as well as space to display family photos and collections. Traditional millwork abounds, including transoms above the interior doorways and a coffered detail on the ceiling.
Using cool blue gives this bedroom an easy updated feel and is warmed with the addition of chocolaty-brown accents in the window treatments and bed skirt. Fun black and white floor tile in the adjacent bathroom is eye catching against the handsome hardwood floor.
