The homeowners wanted a light, bright, open space, so designers started with a neutral color palette to reflect the natural light let into the space from the windows and French doors on each side of the fireplace. Then, they brought in soft, luxurious fabrics that cover the headboard and footboard, the bed linens, sofa and armchair. Modern furnishings and a geometric rug finish off the design.
In the master bedroom, designers took advantage of the natural light that spilled in from the sliding glass doors that provide patio access by choosing a neutral color for the walls that reflects that light and anchors the space. Then, fun colored bed linens were placed on the bed to give the room a little personality and bold pops of color, while the geometric rug beneath the bed helps to break the space up and give it some definition. Finally, designers added an Asian inspired headboard and industrial nightstands with bright orange table lamps to finish off the eclectic space.
A vintage mercury-glass lamp sits on the dark wood dresser, which also serves as a nightstand, in this neutral transitional bedroom. The mercury lamp complements the large silver headboard attached to the wall, while Sferra bedding creates a crisp white backdrop for custom pillows to tie the room together. Matching upholstery on a bench at the end of the bed creates a cohesive, sophisticated space.
A neutral color palette with pops of green set the tone for this jungle-inspired bedroom complete with a faux elephant head and stuffed giraffe. Identical twin beds are smartly dressed with black and white bedding and topped with a green throw to tie in the nearby ottoman and stool.
This neutral kid's room proves that a space doesn't have to be colorful to be fun and playful. Built-in cabinets flank both sides of the bed, creating functional and stylish bedside tables. An upholstered headboard with two rows of nailhead trim is custom-built to fit the space, and reading lights above are a practical addition. Dinosaur-printed bedding and a pair of acid green pillows bring punch and kid-friendly flair.
HGTV's Cousins On A Call, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri rebuild Mr. and Mrs. Galatt's master suite. They have painted the space a neutral gray, but have added stripes to the back wall to serve as a statement piece for the couple's space. They have added modern bedside tables to each side of the bed and have placed lamps on each one. Behind the lamps, the cousins have hung mirrors, which makes the space look larger. The elegant paint and accessories are joined by a stately tufted headboard and classic white linens.
Casual is best when it comes to a potluck dinner table setting. Use what you have on hand; consider white or neutral organic tableware and everyday flatware. Atop each plate, place a folded linen napkin and a small place card, nestled in a sprig of succulents. Other place card holders include flowers, ivy, a piece of chocolate, a crusty French roll, or a candy-filled egg cup.
