Just a little bit of brown can go a long way in a living room’s design. Cocoa brown and soft pastels are pretty accents in this living room that’s grounded by white walls. Designer Mariah O’Brien loves using white as a backdrop for a room with a variety of other elements like rich shades. “The white really makes an impact, as it’s a perfect backdrop for the other design elements we brought into the living experience," O'Brien says. Cocoa chairs and curtains add just a touch of brown to a room filled with pretty pastels.
The bright windows and pastel walls juxtapose the floral bedding and striped rug in this stunning bedroom, offering a calm and refreshing space to relax. The white four-poster bed, classic wood nightstands and metallic lamps add traditional elegance to the room.
A large black fireplace and mantel are framed by sheer curtains that surround a majority of the room. Low-slung blue chairs and large round chairs in pink create a comfortable seating area while a sleek metal floor lamp and matching table lamps give a more streamlined look.
Everything about this room voices its comfort and charm, beginning with its hint of green wall color and continuing with designer Ana Donohue's choice of furnishings, window treatments and accent pieces. The colors are soft, clear and harmonious--with an aesthetic that says, "You are home!"
This sweet dining area that lies adjacent to the family room is a exploration in color and pattern. The pink striped chairs, paisley bench and Lucite chairs all work together for a contemporary look and, surprisingly, complement the more traditional dining table they surround. The room offers lots of light with transom windows spanning the entire space.
Tropical elements infuse this transitional family room with texture and color. A large sectional sofa provides plenty of seating for family and friends, while a dining table offers a spot for informal meals and impromptu games.
Rugs in dining rooms offer a chance to play with color, texture and pattern while also defining the dining area from its surrounding areas. For a classic touch, consider low-maintenance, flat weave rugs. Thin and light-weight, the rugs can simply be walked outside and beaten with a broom for a quick dusting.
Vibrant floral dining chairs with Lucite legs are the highlight of this pastel dining room. A sparkling chandelier hangs above the sleek white dining table, while a gallery wall of colorful prints coordinate with the standout seating.
This room is pink and proud with a pastel pink crib, window valance and rug. Touches of green can be found in the valance, and a floral print art brings a pop of brighter colors to the soft space. An ornate pink chandelier tops off this feminine space with a bit of sparkle.
HGTV fan BrunetteMommy added a sweet detail to her nursery without lifting a paintbrush. The tree with tiny pink birds is actually a handmade wall decal from Etsy.com. Affordable and easy to apply, the decal can be removed when the nursery later transitions to a big girl room.
Pale blues and hints of coral create a soothing color palette in this coastal-style bedroom. The gray wood-plank headboard brings a soft yet rustic look to the bed. A cloche with fake flowers makes a simple but pretty floral display on the wicker nightstand.
Incorporating soft pinks and pastel greens, this dining room feels open and full of natural light. The custom pink table seats eight and was inspired by a Chanel piece. Two crystal chandeliers hang above the table, adding elegance and sophistication to the fun, feminine space.
