This all-over white living room earns a touch of softness from a plush gray velvet sectional with nailhead trim. A mirrored glass metallic coffee table sits at the center of the sitting area, while a large window just behind the sofa allows for taking in the city landscape.
The owners of this 1918 Craftsman home wanted a front yard and porch that would be instantly welcoming. The original exterior's green stucco was switched out to navy blue siding that paired handsomely with the home's cream-colored trim. For a cohesive look from yard to porch, designers used planters painted the same pale gray as the chairs and porch floor.

Stunning wood and plasterwork moldings and details define this elegant space. Sage green trim molding stands out against the bright aqua walls for added visual interest. A chair and sofa upholstered in a peach floral pattern pops against the blue walls and add a warm color to the room's cool palette. An ornate mantel with a floral carving complements the floral-patterned furnishings to unify the space.
Sunlight streams onto this dining table from the sliding door providing balcony access. The light and airy look is perfect for the open floor plan of the home. A light, neutral color scheme keeps the look cohesive with the connected room. Tufted dining chairs with nailhead trim surround the smooth, natural wood table. Shrubs in the centerpiece and napkins at the place settings add color to the table.
Designers focused on clean lines and sleek fixtures in their redesign of this Boston's penthouse's master bathroom and used a subdued white and brown color palette for a unified look. The single sink vanity, mirror, and modern wall sconces tie in with the tile flooring and and the material and trim used on the walls and in the shower stall. And, the dark brown, textured shower wall panel is a showstopper.
The white base in the public spaces of this home help to make it bright and welcoming. The white base color on the walls and trim reflects the natural light that streams in from the windows on all sides. To add warmth and color to the hallway spaces and the living room, designers added charcoal patterns, which tie these spaces together with the powder room and bar areas.
A detail of this charming farmhouse kitchen shows off its open shelving and green marble countertop, details that blend seamlessly and characterize the home's updated take on farmhouse style. Brass hardware and green-painted trim are crisp and on-trend. The designers expanded the kitchen footprint and opened up the home's floor plan to create a family-friendly space.
Choose elegant finishes and accessories to maximize style on islands in compact kitchens. This smaller kitchen, designed by Donna Mathis of Haven Design Works, proves that you can still have pizzaz on a petite island. A compact island saves money on finer finishes like marble countertops; plus you can add style by picking visually interesting bar stools with details like the nailhead trim shown here.
The home’s curb appeal was updated by installing a new entry door and sidelights; new windows, including an enlarged opening for the second-floor living room; new fiber cement siding for the upper level; and a new garage door.
A new walkway was added to the street instead of having to come up the driveway. Heavy trim around the entry, garage door and new living room windows helped balance the façade.
This quaint living room boasts all the comforts of a traditional home. With elements including exposed wood beams, vaulted ceilings, and shiplap walls my personal favorite detail is the stained wood trim around the windows. True to tiny home form, this space is also multifunctional. The TV wall conceals a full-size Murphy bed that can accommodate guest overflow.
Trim your plant as needed to maintain its size, and remove any flowers when they fade. Looking for more plants to grow in a terrarium? Calvo suggests Alpine water fern (Blechnum penna-marina), Baby’s tears (Soleirolia soleirolii), Dwarf crisped fern (Dryopteris affinis ‘Crispa Gracilis’), Creeping fig (Ficus pumila) and Artillery plant (Pilea glauca ‘Aquamarine’).
Rose suggests watering your terrarium with a dropper or turkey baster, or try “a watering can with a thin spout that can direct the water to the soil just under the leaves.” The absorbent florist foam will take up the excess water. Trim back plants as flowers fade or leaves grow tall.
A small space with an awkward transition between a hallway and formal living room is put to use as a cozy reading nook. Though the chaise and bookcase are modern in nature, the leather upholstery and crown molding-style trim help keep the space traditional enough to fit the adjacent room. The cowhide rug adds extra coziness, making this a perfect spot to curl up with a great book.
A cozy window seat provides the perfect spot for reading, lounging or just enjoying the peaceful setting of this renovated New York farmhouse. Trim throughout the space is painted a chameleon shade of green that changes to blue or gray depending on the light. A rustic beam crosses the ceiling, a nod to the home's historic character.
A dark, stained wood staircase in a Queen Anne-style home is built out with paneling and trim. The home was built in the early 1900s in
Atlanta. While the stained glass is not original to the home and was added by previous owners, homeowner and designer Carl Mattison said the stained glass provides privacy while allowing in light.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, to maximize the space in this kitchen, Joanna added a functional kitchen island to increase seating options and give the family more prep space for meals. Gray cabinets match the gray trim and molding from the rest of the open concept first floor, and rustic stools provide complementary style. A subway tile backsplash polishes off the space, finishing out the design.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Jo turned the old space into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The old drop ceiling was removed, adding height to the room, and a wooden support beam was added. A subway tile backsplash, floating wood shelves, and stainless steel appliances were also installed.
If you have an area where turf is thin or just won’t grow, swap it for some easy-care ornamental grasses and sedges. These plants bring texture and year-long interest to any yard, and their care routine is beyond simple. An annual trim keeps most grasses in check, while sedges need very little annual grooming. A quick brush in early to mid-spring with gloved hands is usually enough to pull out dead stems and trigger new growth.
