As seen on HGTV's hit show, Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna have turned this mundane master into a magnificent masterpiece. A new coat of paint provided the base color for an elegant, neutral color palette. Windows in the corner of the room let in plenty of natural light, making that corner of the space the perfect place for a reading nook. A faux mantel in the center of the room creates a focal point and adds a smidge of rustic charm to the space, tying this design into the rest of the home.
Amy has a way with mixing styles at home. In this reading nook a mid-century chair, a brass lamp from the '80s and a centuries-old carved stone fireplace come together seamlessly. Behind the lounge, two ancient tree stumps that have crystallized over millions of years are the oldest pieces in the home. And plants in earthenware pots reinforce the earth tone color scheme while adding to the nature-inspired feel of the room. Amy’s ability to layer neutrals helps bring pieces from various periods together beautifully.
Homeowners wanted a non-traditional design in this modern nursery that could grow with their son as he grows, so designers created this edgy space. The black and white color palette makes the space modern and unique, while the black sound waves running up the wall keep the space from feeling too babyish; however, the artwork from Shel Silverstein's classic children's book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" helps to bring nursery innocence to the space. To add the finishing touches, air ducts and pendant lights were exposed to give the space an edgier look and a reading nook was created as a comfortable place to foster learning throughout this little boy's life.

An antique mirror over sits over the wooden dresser, on which sits vases of brightly colored fresh flowers. A play tent in charcoal gray with white dots atop a small white faux fur rug provides a special place to hide away or share secrets with friends. An area rug in blush pink with a charcoal gray and white pattern picks up the colors from elsewhere in the room and complements the wooden furniture.
