For the dining room challenge on HGTV Design Star season 5, Emily Henderson and Michael Moeller design a space completely out of repurposed furnishings. They paint the ceiling a bright green to create an "intentional explosion" of color, and for her project, Emily attaches plastic flowers to a chandelier and paints the entire piece a crisp white.
HGTV Star contestant Abby Vasek designed this bedroom for an artist who loves to be surrounded by color. She painted the furniture and walls, then brought in contrasting green silk draperies and colorful patchwork bedding.
A tray ceiling and floor-to-ceiling green curtains create height in this earth-toned bedroom, especially when combined with a low, modern bed. Plenty of throw pillows and a tufted ottoman keep the room bright and friendly, even with the dark walls.
One of the quickest and most effective ways to spruce up an outdoor living space is by adding lightweight drapery panels. Here, the hard lines of the pergola are softened with charcoal drapes that make the porch feel more cozy while also separating it from the nearby grilling deck.
Slipcovered chairs and a built-in bench with striped upholstery cushions surround a wooden table in this update take on a Southern cottage. Pistachio green walls, nautical sconces, pale wood floors and billowing white drapes complete this mod-cozy look. The made over dining space was featured on HGTV's series Renovation Raiders.
This living room is full of bold color, a fun juxtaposition with the room's Southwestern architecture including adobe walls and heavy wood ceiling beams. Green curtains pull the eye up; the blue media console pops off the wall, muting the presence of the tv.
