This hallway features the same soft blue wall color that is featured throughout the adjoining master bedroom, offering a soothing vibe to the space. Colorful artwork hangs on the wall, while a decorative metallic half moon table showcases a modern glass lamp.
This neutral table is livened with a graphic pattern and marbled coloring. A colorful abstract canvas mounted above adds vibrant hues and artistic chaos to the smooth, light trinkets decorating the table.
Designer Heather Hogan Roberts likes using succulents because they are resilient plants that require little maintenance. The homeowner already had this arrangement in another room, so Roberts made it a key item in her coffee table makeover. The living room already had the sphere fixture, but the Ivy and Vine design team spent $42 on a canvas and paint to make the artwork.
In the living room makeover, designer Heather Hogan Roberts incorporated bursts of blue. She also took cues from fashion, such as using African beads that the homeowner purchased previously at a antique market to accessorize a console table, instead of an outfit.
Open wall space connecting to the kitchen leaves the dining room feeling open and comfortable. Tufted leather chairs create a sleek set up around the natural wood dining table. An elegant table setting complete with large stone candlesticks is lit by the curled chandelier hanging between wood ceiling beams. Black metal letters decorate the wall spelling "Home" for an extra inviting detail.
Take a cheap white bowl (this one cost $2 at a Goodwill thrift shop) and add interest by filing it with a unique accessory: pink beads. Then don't forget mirrors, big or small, when decorating a living space. Designer Heather Hogan Roberts of Ivy and Vine used a mirrored tray underneath. Beyond the table, the woven basket holding blankets on the hearth used to be hidden behind a chair.
To save money, the coffee table remained but designer Heather Hogan Roberts moved succulents from another room to add greenery. Then she surrounded the plant with thrifted accessories and borrowed beads from the homeowner's jewelry box as accessories.
A lush centerpiece and decorative place settings fill the natural wood dining table. The spherical shrubs feature a dark green coloring while folded napkins add a lighter shade. Gold details in the centerpiece and the runner give a shine to the table. Tufted dining chairs with nailhead trim are a sophisticated touch to polish off the refined design.
Metallics add a modern touch to a room without breaking your budget. For table decor under $100, Parker Kennedy Living used a sea urchin from Target and a lacquer green and gold box from C Wonder. They didn't have to buy new books, since the homeowner already owned those, as well as the table.
A new rug took up $110 of the $500 budget. Designer Heather Hogan Roberts found this fleece rug with a geometric pattern on sale and saved more with a 10 percent off coupon. She bought two ikat window panels and got one for 40 percent off. Those savings allowed her to buy discounted fabric for custom pillows and the elephant end table, which cost $40 at a thrift shop. The fiddle-leaf fig adds natural beauty to a corner with no need for wall art.
The mix of end tables keeps things interesting in this living room. Here, an oval-shaped end table with a mirrored top features a decorative bowl with green filler that ties in with the green design in the nearby chair.
Green in the curtain pattern compliments the green throw pillows padding the sofa. A ruffled skirt lining the bottom of the sofa give it a feminine and soft finish. A patterned area rug features orange color that blend beautifully with the room design. Decorative coffee table legs add a subtle finishing touch.
A thick blue cushion and line of throw pillows soften this wood bench for a comfortable outdoor sitting space. Ceramic stands create a decorative coffee table set up, and a metal end table adds a rougher texture to the serene design. Landscape lighting bounces off the glass retaining wall for a glowing effect.
