This cozy cottage living room makes use of bold colored fabrics to bring the cottage feel alive.

David and Kortney wanted to keep the living room open and simple, so they brought in a neutral sofa to complement the white walls, neutral stone fireplace and natural light of the space. Then, they added color by adding blue and green striped chairs with mint accents throughout the space to keep things stylish and bright.
Clean, white wall space gives a fresh and airy look to this contemporary kitchen.

The custom bar includes four pro-quality taps, white subway tile backsplash and a custom shelf with under-lighting that illuminate bottles or decorative items.

To give the open space just off the entry a purpose, yet keep the center of the area open for traffic flow in and out of this apartment, two pairs of ready-made bookshelves purchased from an office supply store were placed back-to-back to act as room dividers. On one side, a private office is separated from the formal dining space and family room on the other side. The apartment's walls were painted peacock blue, which helps the walls recede so that accents of white and apple green stand out.
Creating separate zones within an open layout is simple, but making them feel at once distinct and connected can be more complicated, says designer Jodie Cooper. Here, she manages this delicate balance deftly, using material — a transition from the practical kitchen flooring to the warm wood in the eating space — and color: A soft blue-green accent wall helps differentiate (and add drama to) the dining area.
In this girl's room, designers used bright colors and fun prints to bring life to the space. The walls are painted a turquoise color that makes the space feel bright, while bold, green accents create contrast. To complete the space, a funky, geometric art piece is hung next to the bed, and mirrored nightstands reflect the furry white rug, making the space feel brighter and more open, creating the perfect girly oasis.
The main house of the building, sitting directly in the middle of the guest rooms, is a communal space where guests come to check in, eat and relax outside of their rooms. Just in through the front door, the space begins with this beautiful dining room. The forest-feel comes immediately through in this space with its color palette of warm browns and greens. The extendable table, which seats as many as 10 guests, is flanked by the hidden star of the show: an exquisite black armoire that accents the deep green of the wall, while the grain of the wood adds pattern and texture to the room.
This library space was once a sea of wall-to-wall green with gold accents and cluttered bookshelves. Now, the space is elegant and calming. The home's original molding and wainscoting has been restored and highlighted in this sleek, new design, and the bookcases have been cleaned up and stocked with myriad books. The luscious, overstuffed furniture gives the family a great place to relax and read, but this space has also been equipped with some tech savvy gadgets, such as a projector with a retractable screen, so that the family can watch their favorite soccer matches in style.
From the entryway into the living room, breakfast nook and kitchen, the same shade of coral paint was used on the walls, and the same accent colors of hot pink and spring green were used in accessories and furniture. In addition to keeping the overall look consistent, this consistent use of color makes the entire great room feel larger. When different paint colors are used in spaces that open into one another, the resulting look can create of a disjointed, choppy effect.
A powder room is another name for a small bathroom space with a suitable vanity, bathroom sink and mirror. It is a high traffic area where you can add a lot of style and leave your guests with a great first impression.

Brown mosaic tile serves as a springboard for this bathroom's casual-chic design sensibility, while twin mirrors visually widen the space. The guest bathroom, from the 2012 HGTV Green Home, has beautifully finished wood cabinets and floors to warm up the room and red accents add a bright pop of color against white walls.

To tie this space to the style of the rest of the home, exposed beams were added to elegantly bring the space together.
To create more light in the space, the Good Bones team, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak, added two new windows in the reclaimed wood accent wall. This not only gives the space a focal point, but also allows more natural light into the space, making it feel bright and open. To add to the elegant, industrial design the team was going for, they added black and white artwork, a metal headboard, brown bed linens and dark end tables and lamp shades.
