Claire Paquin's inspiration for this great room was a chandelier located in the Biltmore Estates that her clients fell in love with when they were married on the property and wished to replicate. She also installed patterned draperies in rust, plum and light blue and carried these colors throughout the room. Paired with the creamy neutrals, this color scheme gives the room a sense of warmth and sophistication.
Designers faced a challenge with the kids' bathroom. The space had to be bright and fun, but it couldn't be too girly or too boy-ish, so they settled on a brightly colored shower curtain in a neutral bathroom. The bold blue, green and yellow circles appealed to brother's and sister's design style, and when combined with fun wainscoting, created a space that both kids loved.

As seen on season one of Sarah Sees Potential, this once plain living room got a much needed modern makeover.

In the bedroom, designers blended the homeowner's collections with a more contemporary color palette.

This entire Spanish eclectic home has strategically placed windows to take advantage of the natural light and provide a mountain view from each of the home's spaces. This bedroom is no exception.

Finally, semi-sheer curtains help to control the room's sunlight.
The homeowners wanted a simple, modern bedroom design, so designers started with sleek, neutral tile on the floor and a complementary wood paneling on the wall. Then, they added a four post bed and pendant light to create height in the design. For comfort, designers added a silk rug and black and white curtains that help to diffuse the sunlight that comes in through the room's expansive windows.

Long white curtains frame the large windows allowing natural light to flood the room and providing a scenic view.
The design team's goal was to create a bedroom that refreshes the mind at the end of a long day and serves as a blank slate at the start of a new day.

This elegant hallways is incredibly bright thanks to the natural light that pours into the space from the window on the door and the window that bisects the bookshelves. That natural light reflects off the neutral walls, making the space feel large and bright. Designers added neat colors and textures to make the space more personal, such as the bright blue patterned couch and curtain, the leaf pendant light and the wall hangings.
This master suite's makeup vanity takes advantage of the natural light pouring in from the large window bank above it.

This craftsman style master bathroom features an olive green and neutral color palette that works really well together. A hanging lantern over the bed is an unexpected but stylish addition while walls painted with Valspar Withered Moss create a restful backdrop.

A brown throw rug coordinates well with the wood floor, curtains, and existing upholstered bedroom furniture.

The homeowners wanted an elegant, serene master space, so designers included luxurious materials and a neutral color palette in their design. From the upholstered headboard to the fluffy comforter to the overstuffed furniture, everything in the space was carefully selected to make the homeowners feel as if they were resting on a cloud. To help this feeling, designers hung sheer curtains in front of the large window to diffuse the natural light and bring an airy feel to the space.
