A striped accent wall pulls this living room together and goes well with the cream sofa and printed slipper chairs. The room is no longer dark and dreary thanks to an orange coffee table, vibrant throw pillows and the help of HGTV's Buying and Selling.
The idea for this funky wall was a collaborative effort from the HGTV Smart Home 2014 design team. "We wanted to really go crazy behind the headboard," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. Painting boards in complementary hues highlights the bed and creates an eye-catching focal point.
A rustic nightstand serves as a display surface for a vintage industrial lamp and reading materials in the guest bedroom of HGTV Smart Home 2014. Behind the bed, a striped accent wall was created by painting boards with various complementary hues.
This spacious kitchen uses patterns and textures to add visual interest to its neutral palette: a small-scale chevron stripe covers the back wall, lively without being overwhelming. Overhead, thick, rustic beams help move the eye across the room.
HGTV's Cousins On A Call, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri rebuild Mr. and Mrs. Galatt's master suite. They have painted the space a neutral gray, but have added stripes to the back wall to serve as a statement piece for the couple's space. They have added modern bedside tables to each side of the bed and have placed lamps on each one. Behind the lamps, the cousins have hung mirrors, which makes the space look larger. The elegant paint and accessories are joined by a stately tufted headboard and classic white linens.
The owner of this home office loves cars so the designer used that as an inspiration jumping-off point. Chevron racing stripes electrify the blue walls and the furnishings are a mix of black and shiny metallics.
