This trendy gray living room features a taupe sofa and armchair paired with navy blue velvet armchairs. Lavender Roman shades cover the windows while a neutral shag rug is paired with a contemporary coffee table at the center of the room. Bright red throw pillows add a pop of vibrant color.
A large chrome chandelier reflects the light colors in this sleek dining space. A modern white dining table with wood chairs defines the room's minimalistic style. A green palm plant and sophisticated gray and white Roman shades dress up the space and add a cozy touch to the room.
The monochromatic teal color scheme of this modern living room pops against background elements in neutral tones of gray and white. Gold accents bring a modern-retro vibe to the polished space. Roman shades have a similar hue to the paneled accent wall, allowing them to "disappear" visually while still adding privacy and filtering light for TV viewing.
A built-in daybed is perfect for cozying up with a good book. Roman window shades match the graphic, diamond-patterned seat cushion. Orange, red and gray pillows bring color to the neutral area. A basket of tennis balls, a basket golf balls and painting of a fox add a touch of whimsy to the space.
A small window lets light into the guest bathroom in the HGTV Dream Home 2014, while a natural-hued Roman shade stands at the ready should privacy be required. Warm grays and browns give the bathroom a clean, relaxing vibe, while metallic fixtures and bright artwork connect it with the adjacent guest room.
This master bedroom, designed by Claire Paquin, features a corner nook with a modern chair and ottoman that continues the theme for this room of comfort and relaxation. The furniture is covered in an attractive white and gray pattern, and a lacquered end table was placed next to the piece. A plain neutral Roman shade completes the look.
The large vanity mirror reflect a blue tile accent wall in this bathroom. The blue paired with patterned yellow roman shades add pops of vibrant color to the white and gray color scheme. A built in bathtub below a window creates a relaxing scene. A knitted stool at the vanity is centered between mirror door cabinets.
Designer Claire Paquin pays homage to old-world style and charm with the redesign of this guest bathroom in white and gray. A traditional-style white vanity with a dark countertop complements tile on the wall and floor, while the artwork, round mirror and patterned Roman shade help assert the vintage look. The room is classic, clean and comfortable.
An island, more storage and dining space were all requested from the client for this small yet efficient kitchen. Contemporary gray cabinets offer ample storage, while a built-in banquette provides the eat-in space the client desired. Bold orange Roman shades bring a burst of color, and a glass mosaic tile backsplash adds interest to the space.
An array of gray hues add warmth to this white transitional kitchen while keeping the space neutral. Honed granite countertops feel softer and more subdued than the traditional polished variety. The windows end halfway up the wall, but the Roman shades are mounted near the ceiling to create the illusion of soaring windows and a higher ceiling.
To give a fresh look to an outdated kitchen, the designers added a row of upper cabinets to heighten the ceilings and make the space feel larger. Those cabinets were painted the same color as the wall to create unity; the lower ones were made a pretty dark gray for contrast and a more modern feel. Brass fixtures and a graphic roman shade complete the room.
Here comes the sun: Buttery paint, a gallery of graphic prints, and a Roman shade in a leafy fabric bring cheer to the space. Other upgrades include a gray wood bed from Target, new nightstands, sconces from Rejuvenation, and a sleek ceiling fan from Hunter. “Katie and I never thought to rearrange stuff, we just copied what the sellers had,” says Patrick. “This layout makes our room feel twice as big.”
