Designer Claire Paquin added a touch of whimsy and fun to this little girl's bedroom with pink accents and a little flower power. The white and gray canvas can handle the strong shade of hot pink in the pillows and floral arrangement, and the cute flowered knob on the white nightstand is a fanciful addition. Having just the accents carry the color allows for quick and inexpensive changes when needed.
This kitchen's crisp, clean white design shows just how much a bit of color can make an impact. Aside from the turquoise chairs and red stools and pillows, the addition of lemons and sunflowers provides a cheery, bright yellow that can be changed out by the day — and those sunny-hued things can be functional, too! In the fall, why not try orange bell peppers paired with chrysanthemums?
According to Tze, the bedroom, “feels like a cloud,” a fact which played heavily into the couple’s decision to forgo adding art to the brick wall there. Instead, the bedside table stands in as the main artistic canvas, featuring pieces that are changed out regularly in keeping with Tze’s philosophy that “art is not permanent.”
A cozy window seat provides the perfect spot for reading, lounging or just enjoying the peaceful setting of this renovated New York farmhouse. Trim throughout the space is painted a chameleon shade of green that changes to blue or gray depending on the light. A rustic beam crosses the ceiling, a nod to the home's historic character.
Updating your kitchen doesn’t always have to cost a fortune or involve weeks of construction. In some cases, it’s the small changes that make the biggest impact. Let this well-designed model home serve as an inspiration for a weekend cabinet redo. You can add decorative molding to your existing cabinets, by following this tutorial by HGTV designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
This bold bedroom embodies style and grace. The black-and-white contrast is timeless, and the design reminiscent of Hollywood glamor. The white tufted headboard provides a comfortable backdrop for reading in bed, and the modern globe fixture provides light without taking up precious space on the side table. Multi-patterned pillows, which can be changed out seasonally, create a punch of funk in the otherwise-neutral room.
These easy ombre colors found at any hardware or home improvement store provide a splash of style to announce your next gathering. You'll need the following materials for this project: paint chips, printed or handwritten party invitations and change of address information, craft knife, scissors, metal ruler or straight edge, pencil and a glue stick.
When the temperatures change, so do the colors of '‘Sweet Mademoiselle’. In hot weather, the flowers are light apricot; when it’s cooler, they become peachy-pink to deep pink. The full, double blooms are sweetly scented, held on 5-foot shrubs with dark green foliage. This hybrid tea blooms from summer to fall.
The scent of this woodland garden changes with the seasons, from the spring bulbs that burst forth beginning in April until the last blossom of the ‘Honorine Jobert’ anemones in November. A walkway leads through the gorgeous greenery, with seats and fountains along the way so that the owners can fully enjoy the scenery.
StudioHue chose to apply a neutral background color--gray--to this little girl's nursery so that the room could be easily changed as she grows. The designers added highlight colors, shapes and fabrics to add interest, such as the white scalloped mobile over an oval crib, geometric shapes painted on the wall and a soft fur area rug atop the carpet.
More than a century after the first Christmas tree was raised in the Banquet Hall at Biltmore House, very little has changed. Relying on newspaper descriptions and estate records, the design team accurately recreates the look of the Gilded Age Christmas that George and Edith Vanderbilt enjoyed when they welcomed their first guests in 1895.
Making changes to your kitchen’s style can be as easy as setting the table. When choosing table decor, it’s OK to use an assortment of plates and glasses purchased new and picked up at antique sales, as long as they’re in the same color palette. “Choose one color range and use it,” says Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques." “Add flower and fruit displays that have the same color.”
Install a sleek sconce on the side of the bed, instead of cramming a lamp onto a small side table, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Sconces may feature swing arms or other ways to change the direction of the light, which helps create a comfortable environment for nighttime reading. A wire basket below a bedside table provides additional, yet stylish, storage.
This cottage bungalow required major structural and architectural changes to restore it. The home was raised four feet from its original height to meet building code and square footage was added, so the home now features three bedrooms, three bathrooms and an open floor plan that combines the kitchen, dining room and living spaces.
Change up your backsplash. A new backsplash, especially one with a unique tile shape, gives the whole kitchen an instant makeover, such as in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winning space by Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Interiors. Choose tiles that are on sale or discontinued to save some money, and ask the store to check other locations to make sure you can get as many as you need.
This funky space would be great for a teen -- or even as a guest bedroom! Ribbons criss-crossed and attached to the periwinkle-colored walls allow the homeowners to place paper mementos all over the walls in varying patterns. And the postcards, photos and art can be added to or changed out at any time. A lace bedskirt creates a feminine feel in the room, and white bed linens feel crisp and comfortable.
Kelly and Co. Design created a contemporary-style bar in this renovated barn entertainment space without losing the ambiance of its rustic surroundings. A black granite countertop and zinc bar top sit atop wood cabinets and stainless steel fixtures. LED backlighting, which can be changed according to mood, showcases the bar selections. The bar features a keg tap, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and ample storage for glassware and other serving pieces.
A giant fish tank makes a stunning focal point, where the grand rear terrace steps down onto an expansive lawn. Not only does it provide a useful transition for the grade change, but it also bridges the home’s interior with the outdoors. The lit tank, with its hand-painted tiles and colorful koi, provides a whimsical dash to an otherwise muted landscape — and nods to the homeowner’s impressive collection of '60s Pop Art inside.
