This traditional living room, a room makeover from HGTV's Flip or Flop, projects an upscale French style both in its color scheme and ornate furniture and accessory selections. The color palette includes white, silver and shades of gray, while the soft green in the pillows, throw and faux greenery mirror the colors seen from the window for a soft blend of hues.
In this urban living room, neutral colors and rich textures are used to create a space that is fresh and hip. Custom hand-blown pendants hang above the bar to add a splash of color. A wall-mounted mirror expands the feeling of the space while a silver-and-white wall graphic runs from the kitchen out onto the balcony, featuring a downtown skyline.
In the master bedroom, the wall on which the bed rests is covered in a gorgeous, metallic silver grass cloth that conceals the hidden door to the closet. Above the mirrored, four-poster bed, a brass chain link chandelier makes a bold statement, while rich texture was added with black faux fur pillow shams and blanket at the food of the bed. To personalize the space even further, designers had a modern, monogram printed on metallic linen.
Susan Brunstrum's unique design for this master bathroom involves floating the vanity in the center of the room and providing cabinetry against the walls to maximize storage opportunities. She placed silver and white drum pendants at the front and behind the vanity and matching sconces on either side of the vanity mirror. This unexpected design creates usable space in the center of the room.
This contemporary bedroom was designed around a passion for the color purple and old Hollywood nostalgia. A wrapped accent wall was plastered with a deep eggplant color and smooth velvet-like finish. The flooring (cut pile carpet) is also a deep eggplant with touches of silver-grey. The bright white furniture and a luxurious upholstered headboard add high color contrast and bold graphic accents. Glamorous accessories, such as mirrored tabletops, a black velvet Lucite bench, black lampshades and a zebra area rug punctuate and anchor the bold color combinations.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson borrowed 15 square feet from the adjacent guest bedroom to carve out space for this chic bathroom vanity. To give the room a first class feel, Sarah added a large silver-framed round mirror, a mosaic tile backsplash and a floating, custom-built wood cabinet with sleek modern hardware and plenty of extra storage. At the far end of this spa bathroom sits a cozy soaking tub with a built-in ledge perfect for holding candles or a glass of wine. A small, linear gallery wall adds color to the monochromatic space and boosts the room's spa-like ambiance.
For maximum visual impact, choose two main colors to work with and one accent. This porch is silver and red with a bit of evergreen. Then repurpose existing materials: Use big flower pots as a base and fill them with evergreen garland, huge ornaments, sparkly twigs and white lights. Another decorating tip is to repeat a few elements. This project used evergreen garland along the porch railing, which mirrored the green in the planters. The ornaments were also hung from the roof and featured in the red and green wreath on the door.
