A cohesive gray-and-white color palette brings this living room together. Designers Danielle Colding and Miera Melba dress up the homeowners' existing sofa with trendy new throw pillows while a sleek entertainment center provides much needed storage.
To make the space more functional, designers from HGTV Design Star Season 6 created an island with barstools between the two pillars in the basement. Judge Vern Yip was impressed with how they smartly integrated elements that are complete eyesores, but structurally necessary to the space.
Former HGTV Design Star contestant Tym De Santo created this living room with a midcentury modern take. Tym's designs have grown since his appearance on the show's first season: "Surprisingly (to me) my 'minimalist' approach to design has grown to include a warmer modern feel," he says. "I am using more texture and color to highlight my interiors, and I love it!"
A glass table takes up less visual space than a wooden one while still providing ample room for cereal and homework. A vase of pink tulips provides a lively and welcoming contrast to the neutral decor chosen for the breakfast nook by Tiffany Brooks, Boris Eckey and Jeribai Tascoe for HGTV Star Season 8. Rustic wooden shelves make use of an empty corner and provide much-needed storage space.
On HGTV Star episode 804, a fireplace in the home of Giovanna and Eric Lawrence is updated from drab brown by designers Tiffany Brooks, Boris Eckey, and Jeribai Tascoe. The fireplace's new warm gray paint blends with the dining room's gray walls, creating the illusion of a larger room.
This dining table in the Northridge, California home of Jair and Tiffany Paz has been beautifully dressed by HGTV Star Season 8 contestants Abby Vasek, Anne Rue, and Brooks Atwood. The designers have wonderfully combined glass jars of lemons with yellow and red flowers and a pair of black candles.
Designers Boris Eckey, Tiffany Brooks, and Jeribai Tascoe dress a dining room buffet in the home of Giovanna and Eric Lawrence in Episode 804 of HGTV Star Season 8. Canvas floral artwork hangs above the buffet and is framed by a pair of glass lamps, and contestant Boris Eckey used richly-textured grasscloth to cover up the room's dated paneling behind the artwork. The lamps, clock, and peacock are from One Kings Lane.
This eclectic dining room was designed by HGTV Star contestants Brooks Atwood and Tiffany Brooks during HGTV Star season 8. A dining table with chunky columnar legs makes a big impact in the small apartment space.
