This traditional bathroom features blue-gray walls paired with neutral and mosaic tiles. Natural stained cabinets and a granite countertop comprise the double sink vanity, while two mirrors and metallic sconces hang above. Earth tones used throughout the space provide a calming effect.
Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s color of the year, designer Jeff Schlarb chose a rich wine color as a theme for the Pent Room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 and worked it in to every detail of the space, from the walls, to the nailhead trim on the tailored sofa. This sitting area allows for private conversation removed from the activity of the pool table and bar.
The combination of a wood section and neutral exterior walls on the home is echoed by the two-toned patio design featuring a wood section and a stone section. The stone flooring marks out the perimeter for an outdoor living room with wicker sofa and chair and a stone wood burning fireplace with chimney.
Partial walls create the feeling of a separate and somewhat private sleeping space in this open studio apartment. Jewel-toned bedding atop a fuchsia platform bed adds a refreshing splash of color to the all-white space.
In the six years since that first encounter, the 1,000 square foot home has become an explosion of design creativity, without a drop of beige to be found. “I started out painting the walls,” Beltran remembers, “I also painted our kitchen cabinets, countertops and floors. I pretty much painted my way though the beige until it was gone.” In the living room, the beige was replaced with an explosion of colors, patterns and artwork, all based around a striking, pink sectional sofa backed by a truly impressive gallery wall.
To create a masculine formal living room, designers bathed the walls in an olive hued neutral. To complement this color choice, neutral furniture brightens the space, highlighting the natural light streaming through the windows. To bring the space together, gold accents complement the olive hues in the wall color and the honey tones in the wood of the furniture.
A mix of color and shapes make this master bathroom interesting. A tall, vertical cabinet is paired with oval mirrors above the rich wood vanity. The two-toned wall color picks up the warmer tones in the neutral tile shower.
Midcentury modern chairs face off in this living room designed by Susan Brunstrum. Built-in bookshelves with a two-toned paint job form a backdrop for the stylish sitting area. The room has great natural light thanks to the large windows on the back wall.
This bold two-tone design is perfect for an energetic and fun kid's bedroom. Green and blue elements are used in every part of the room design from the wall paint to the bed linens. A lime green arm chair pops against the blue rug. Patterned pillows on the bed, chair and window seat bring a cozy plushness to the room.
Both the living room and dining room have a softened color scheme with the ceilings and walls painted the same shade of green-gray and window trim painted in a similar tone. "The trim is actually two shades darker, but when you see them together, they look like they're the same," says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Mina and Karen used neutral gray and brown tones to create a sophisticated oasis. The neutrals keep the design calm, yet warm and inviting, while the patterns on the fabric adds a fun twist to an elegant design. To add color to this neutral palette, the duo added bold paintings and a colorful bird mobile to brighten the space.
A metallic roman shade gives a reflective quality to the neural design of this small bathroom. The wood vanity grounds the design with a sturdy look and decorative cabinet finish. Green and yellow tones pop in the countertop marble adding subtle color and intrigue.
A custom made steel pivot door adds a statement modern element to this living space design. Cool-toned hardwood gives off a gray coloring beautifully mixing with the white walls and all ceilings. A wood dining table is paired with tan leather chairs over an animal hide rug. A large wall of windows lets in natural light and offers a view to the yard.
Dark brown leather furniture, brown and grey upholstered chairs, and black marble wall tile coordinate with the room's light brown wall color and wood bar area to create a brown color schemed living room with neutral tones. Neutral walls and drapes help balance the room.
A honed limestone and bronze coffee table flanks two cream-colored armchairs to create a comfy sitting area in this transitional home library in the San Francisco Decorators Showcase 2014. The room's neutral colors contrast well with the wood textures of the bookshelves and cabinets and the stone fireplace.
"For Stacey, the carnation is a hard-working flower that has the possibility of being more than it appears on the surface. Her desk and chair seem both modern and traditional at once, showcasing the complexity of the flower she has chosen," said judge Vern Yip of HGTV's Design Star. This transitional room features traditional decor with a modern twist. The two-tone walls add color to the white furniture, wood flooring and dark wooden desk.
