Mornings automatically feel more cheery in this colorful breakfast nook where blue paisley shades and cushions and pops of bright pink welcome the day with style. Gold accents are a sophisticated finishing touch.
Susan Brunstrum designed this bedroom in shades of cream and blue to coordinate with the color palette she used in the rest of this Park City, Utah vacation home. Along with a pair of beds, this room features a comfortable daybed in cream with navy and cream accents. Blue paisley curtains complete the look.
This transitional rec room sitting area features a red striped shade, chairs upholstered in a red paisley print, paintings with red on them and a red Oriental carpet. The brown wood coffee table anchors the room.
A round table with high-gloss white finish and whitewashed woven rattan chairs sit center stage in the open dining room. This inviting space that can seat up to six includes different textures and shades of green that coordinate with the eucalyptus green walls of the home's main floor.
Who said formal needs to be boring? Add vibrant color to a formal dining space to create a relaxing, fun vibe. Shades of blue are divided by a white chair rail that unite the wall and curtains. The plush, blue tufted sofa becomes the focal point, accented with multi-colored throw pillows. The green palm tree leaves add natural dimension and color.
A paisley print quilt in teal and white plays off the dark teal walls while keeping the space from feeling too heavy. Mixing the printed quilt with the blue and yellow striped Roman shades keeps the eye moving and punctuates the room with interesting patterns and textures.
When interior designer Linda Woodrum set about designing this guest bedroom for HGTV Dream Home 2009, she envisioned a cozy, lived-in space with walls painted a peaceful shade of buttercream and a bed blanketed in heirloom-style fabrics. To balance the old-fashioned feel, jolts of color, interesting texture combinations and bold patterns, including paisley and check, were used to ramp up the room's energy.
In Chris' bedroom, a mix of high and low created his designer bed ensemble. A custom bed upholstered in automotive vinyl was the area's biggest purchase; however, deceptively budget-friendly purchases were made for the remainder of the space. The demilune-shaped chests came from ZGallerie for $600 each, and not only do they add an elegant touch, they offer concealed storage. Table lamps atop the chests were found at a flea market and updated with red paint and new metallic drum shades. While Ralph Lauren bedding in a classic paisley print was a splurge, custom pillows made from $6.99 per yard IKEA tartan fabric kept the budget in check. To allow Chris to easily change up the looks of his bedding, the backs of each pillow were covered in a nautical print from Duralee.
