Actress, singer-songwriter and food blogger Haylie Duff is comfortable with her neutral-chic Los Angeles home. But designer Kelli Ellis decides to splash Haylie's home with a palette of white, pink and blue to create a feminine and eclectic holiday display perfect for her upcoming party. As seen on HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes.
This garage was transformed into a fun and colorful apartment, giving the space a youthful look. Sage green chaises are positioned at the foot of an Indian-inspired canopy bed with sheer curtains. The lofty layering of the bed is soft and airy, which carries over the melon-colored window treatments. Bold throw pillows and a shag rug complete the eclectic look.
Designer: ID Creations; Theme: Every Day in the Hamptons is a Holiday; What we love: The many hues of white, from bright white drapery to pearly white console table. "I chose a serene neutral palette and highlighted the space with interesting artwork and eclectic accessories that represent my many travels throughout Europe and South America," says designer Iris Dankner.
Color galore! The blues of the sky and greens of grass and plants make this eclectic living room come alive. Vibrant royal-and-white modern art mirrors the boldly printed rug. The comfy sofa is chock-full of multi-color, patterned pillows that can change with the seasons or on a whim. Personal effects -- scattered throughout the space -- provide a window into the owners' lives, and a large coffee table provides an ample area for knick-knacks and plants alike.
What’s in your closet or stashed in your attic could be the next star in your decor. These boots were made for this bookshelf and its fun, eclectic aesthetic. Interior designer Jade Joyner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., used these childhood boots as a personal touch with an additional jolt of color, in front of the lively wallpaper with coral hues.
Throughout the open-plan home, Tze uses rugs to create separation between different areas. Art also helps to reinforce the idea of distinct spaces. In the dining room, a large photographic piece by Adam Ryder defines the space. Contrasting the very modern look of the building in the photo, the dining table itself is a vintage find surrounded by a mix of chairs that Tze discovered, creating an eclectic look.
This kitchen is a traditional design with a some farmhouse flavor. Contemporary lighting such as Murano glass cylinder ceiling light pendants provide some eclectic flair to the kitchen. Upscale appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf add luxury to the kitchen design. Gray-colored Italian marble slabs are used to create a backsplash that provides a good deal of texture. The windows are purposely left untreated in order to allow for the maximum amount of light without disrupting the view to the outdoors.
To take this modern Austin, Texas home from drab to fab, designers used different colored paints to create depth and drama on the front of this home. The simple elevation of the structure required a unique color to highlight the depth of the home, so designers chose an orange color, highlighted by a neutral gray for the main part of the home and a brown for accents. These colors will carry into the home and create a fun, eclectic space on the interior as well as bring curb appeal to the home's modern facade.
Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat, and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family.
We got rid of the draperies and painted the windows gray for a more open and modern feel. A new mantle and all new furniture made for a refreshed and now usable space!
This open plan traditional kitchen has farmhouse flavor. Contemporary lighting such as Murano glass cylinder ceiling light pendants and mid-century Emeco aluminum dining chairs provide some eclectic flair. The dining chairs are intended to juxtapose the antique, weathered farm table. Upscale appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf add luxury. Gray-colored Italian marble slabs are used to create a backsplash that provides a good deal of texture. The windows are purposely left untreated in order to allow for the maximum amount of light without disrupting the view to the outdoors.
The master suite is comprised of three rooms - the bedroom, dressing room and wet room. Behind the bed, a thrift store find creates a stunning focal point - this vintage 1970’s oil painting by a local city artist creates a dramatic and elegant statement. Inspired by the painting, Lauren Levant designed custom pendant lighting that she made herself from copper battery clamps, stainless steel cable and a light socket kit from the hardware store. A World War II era shipping trunk and an antique ladder complete the collection to create an eclectic, dramatic master suite that celebrates adaptive innovation.
A fresh minty green called "Restful" (SW 6458) from the HGTV Home paint collection by Sherwin-Williams evokes an airy coastal feeling in this bright sunroom. The table coated in "Rapture Blue" (SW 6773) draws the eye further into the space. Botanical prints hang on the paneled walls, lending to this coastal cottage feel. An eclectic mix of wicker and traditional furniture in whites, neutrals, and blues sets the tone for the casual space. White curtains allow for plenty of natural light and a white throw rug over hardwood flooring anchors the room.
Camille Flurry's Athens, Ga., bedroom is the perfect example of a tween room done right. To create a one-of-a-kind, eclectic, super-cool space, Camille's mom, Amy, combined handed-down family pieces with finds from local flea markets, vintage boutiques and art festivals. The white bed and nightstand first belonged to Amy as a child. She supplemented these finds with traditional area rugs from local stores. The chandelier is a budget-saver from a local lighting company that Amy customized with red spray paint to brighten Camille's room.
As rough-hewn and industrial as some loft spaces can be, there’s still ample opportunity to introduce spaces rich in refined style, as designer Hannah Crowell did in this eclectic dining room. “This was a new build that I wanted to give depth and character, so I chose a charcoal grey that pulled a slight bit of purple. I wanted to mix modern pieces (the Wegner chairs) with a farm table and Bryan Nash Gill prints. The Patterson Flynn and Martin rug was custom and took us 6 months to make but it pulled everything together perfectly.”
This home is a visual feast. Strong patterns and saturated colors are showcased throughout. The living room is grounded by a cream and red rug that brings an instant dose of color. For more pops, David and Rumaan have topped it with a bright yellow coffee table. An eclectic mix that is also vibrant and fun. Bringing the various shades together, a gallery wall above the television includes several pieces painted by David’s grandfather.
Designer Jil Sonia McDonald mixes funky patterns with unique pieces to create comfortable and eclectic dining spaces. In this one, a wide window seat offers banquette seating in a dining nook. Remove the breakfast table and its the perfect spot to sit and read. A mix of throw pillows, in orange, white and solid green, and a bold orange bench cushion animate the space, while built-in drawers offer extra storage below. An orange and white chevron throw adds the finishing touch.
Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family. This angle shows close-ups of the great texture and color we were able to put in there with the vintage rug layered over the jute, the green pillows and the awesome art that made it feel personal and cozy.
In a new home, designer Jodie Cooper took the concept of dramatic lighting to new heights, using a custom-made “bulkhead” suspended from the ceiling by chrome rods to light the kitchen and dining area. “The bulkhead also helps to visually define the kitchen area without losing the loft style feel,” she says. And, she notes, “having a modern kitchen does not need to translate to having modern décor. By blending pieces, such as retro dining chairs, Chinese antiques, rustic dining table combined with Turkish patchwork rugs, we created texture and layers, which add a kind of Bohemian style to the home to create what I call a “Global Eclectic” interior.”
