Says designer Jordan Shields, "I used a ton of art books as accessories to make the spaces interactive and interesting." The living room's light palette serves as a foil for the colorful books, artwork and that dreamy view.
A bench seat provides an understated touch of personality perfect for the stylish and graceful look of this dining room. A contemporary glass table with a curved silver base is accented with vibrant pink details in the table setting.
"As you walk by, it has wonderful dimension and interest," interior designer Linda Woodrum says of the powder room at HGTV Dream Home 2014. "It's a room that's used a lot, and it's important to have something interesting there. "
This glass container is filled with “unearthed” ivy, which means the dirt has been removed with the roots exposed, says Joyce Mason-Monheim, floral director for Accent Decor. "Ivy and many other plants will last for a lengthy time without soil and survive with just a water source," says Mason-Monheim, a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers. The ivy is shown with a purple Phalaenopsis orchid bloom for color and detail.
The gorgeous orchid gracing a small side table gives this monochromatic living room an instant punch of lively color. Patterns and textures in throw pillows also help bring life to the soft gray space.
A boldly colored table is a fabulous way to punch up an otherwise traditional space. This red one is the highlight of the area, and it doesn't feel too dark because the large windows bring tons of life — as does the beautiful orchid.
