Los Angeles, California, 02/08/2013 - The blue host and hostess chairs are from One Kings Lane as are the candles on the TV console and the coffee table with green vase. "After" shot of designer Tylor Devereaux and team mate Crisermy Mercado's re-designed apartment. HGTV Star episode 803, "Lofty Ideas," is a group challenge with teams of two in 4 different apartments in Glendale, California.
After misplacing their drapes at the last minute, Anne and Jeribai took down the curtain rods and went with just the blinds. Their design balanced contemporary pieces with neutral walls and a tall indoor palm.
Tiffany employs a playful color palette with a mix of sleek, midcentury pieces and more contemporary ones for this HGTV Star makeover. She pairs the slab-style dining table with bright, mismatched chairs. The coordinated gallery wall features pop art prints designed by Palm Springs artists.
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 transitional kitchen remodel from HGTV Star Season 8 for homeowners Jair and Tiffany Paz features a built-in breakfast bar with a custom bar top and stool seating. Designers Abby Vasek, Anne Rue, and Brooks Atwood used plenty of warm neutrals, a window garden, and new glass-front cabinets to soften this kitchen space.
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.
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!"
