Natural fibers, floral prints and distressed wood combine in this tropical-inspired bedroom. While the space is filled with natural light during the day, a bedside lamp with a red linen drum shade provides both light and style day and night.
An open, stainless steel frame supports the glass top of this sleek desk. A red chair provides a bright and bold pop of color complemented by the red shade on the table lamp. A black and white painting adds texture and decorates the solid wall space.
A pair of twin beds with striped bedding anchor this kid's room. A large window is dressed with a black-and-white patterned roman shade, which stands out against the bold red wall. A lamp with a cow-print lampshade brings a western vibe to the room.
Contemporary bird artwork was chosen to add a quirky touch to this bright, bold guest bedroom. The pinks, reds and oranges from the artwork were used in a color-blocking technique around the room, featured on the lamps, cushions and bedding. Designer tip: To keep a space with bright colors from looking like a kid's room, layer shades of the same tone throughout, like this room layers coral, orange and red.
Unique was what the homeowner was looking for in the design of her apartment, so designers created a headboard out of rare Oriental panels. Then, they pulled the cherry hues out of the frame with the bold, red details on and around the bed, like the lamp shades and the pillows.
A vintage lamp table with an oversized shade sheds light on a comfy armchair in this midcentury-modern living room. An exposed brick wall is painted white to brighten the neutral space, and gray patterned wallpaper adds interest on an accent wall.
An organic cotton duvet in a gray and white chevron pattern creates a soft cushion and stands in contrast to a red hand-blocked cotton pillow in the cozy guest bedroom of HGTV Green Home 2012. An exercise in symmetry, floor lamps with dramatic linen shades and inset wall shelves flank the bed.
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.
