Colors in the bright polka-dot bedding in this contemporary teen's bedroom are used throughout the space, particularly in the colorful modern artwork. A white lacquered console table paired with an acrylic stool creates a chic vanity. Meanwhile, bright blue walls, bold prints and a mod Parsons desk combine for a fun, contemporary space where a teen can sleep, study and hang out with friends.
Cooking is one of the homeowners' favorite shared hobbies, so when they decided to renovate, the kitchen became a priority. Walls were torn down to open up the space to the dining room and living room. Soapstone and marble grace the countertops, two-toned custom cabinetry is installed and Urban Electric pendant lights hang over the expansive island, lending both illumination and style to space.
An infusion of art-deco style elevates the design of this hall bathroom, an eco-chic space shared by the home's two guest bedrooms. The room’s silver, white and cream color palette is quiet and soothing. A shower curtain, custom-made for the space, hangs from the top of the wall to showcase the floor-to-ceiling bathtub surround and emphasize the 9-foot ceiling.
This contemporary, West Coast residence has a beautiful open design and modern decor. A short glass wall provides a balcony overlook from the second floor to the first where a long light fixture hangs as a decorative eye-catcher. The second story features a living room area with gray leather sofa, an eclipse door leading to an outdoor patio and a dining area in front of a built in fireplace.
Muted spaces are all about a well-balanced, calm aesthetic. Rather than hanging high-energy artwork above the desk, a clean, classic grouping was made with framed photographs and women’s apparel. When grouping art and objects together in a saloon wall style, be sure to take scale and proportion as well as textural values into consideration. All the textures found in the framing, mat and woven hat play well together since they’re all from similar color families. Scale and proportion are kept in check by keeping spacing similar between objects.
The family wanted to showcase their personal style and spunk, so designers added statement pieces to the entryway of this home. Unique artwork hangs on the walls of the space, while the floor is adorned with a large, butterfly rug. The dresser in the foyer is an antique English dresser that has been upcycled to include the lyrics of the song, "Imagine," to showcase the family's unique values.
During renovation, the stairs in the living room were repositioned along the side wall, which allowed a new opening between the room and the adjacent kitchen and encouraged movement of light and views through the two spaces. Sculptural rings hang from the ceiling, emphasizing the height of the room, while glass partitions running along the stairs and landing allow for the generous Arizona sunlight to travel to all corners of the home.
Smooth woodgrain cabinetry and island base showcase a beautiful, warm tone against the white walls and gray tile flooring. A skylight allows natural light to flood the space, keeping it bright and refreshing. Diamond-like pendant lights hang over the white countertop of the island and white leather bar chairs with stainless steel base and built-in foot rests. A turquoise backsplash adds a bright pop of color to the room.
Create a beautiful piece of indoor or outdoor decor with a piece of plywood, a pile of sticks and some wood glue. Cut the plywood into a roughly pumpkin shape. Use wood glue to completely cover the plywood with rows of sticks. It's ok if the sticks hang over the edge of the wood a bit. Place weights on the sticks and let the glue dry for at least 24 hours. Trim the edges of the sticks and sand if necessary to create your refined pumpkin shape. Add a fabric leaf and display your pumpkin in your garden, beside your front door, or hang it on the living room wall.
Hand-painted pinstripes and removable wallpaper on one accent wall add instant style to this small rented studio on Manhattan's Upper West Side. A West Elm Henry sofa comes alive with pillows that feature bold brushstrokes of magenta, and a feather Juju hangs above as a whimsical touch. A Blu Dot for Target console table does triple duty as a vanity, workspace and dining table.
The family who own this Southwestern-style home wanted one space in which to hang out as a family and play games, do art and read together. A second living space was designed to be more of an entertaining area, as well as a place for the family to watch tv. In both room, designers punctuated the adobe walls with pops of bright colors: red, green and blue.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, designer Jillian Harris created a more open space by ripping out the wall that divided the kitchen and living space and putting in a large island with white quartz countertops and lots of new storage. The previous countertops were so outdated, their width did not accommodate a dishwasher. The hardware and lighting was replaced, Edison lights hang above the island, hardwood floors were put down.
Transform a blank wall into a drying rack with red and white kitchen twine, origami hearts and clothespins. Write the name of each guest onto heart-shaped pieces of card stock, and hang on the line to identify everyone's work. Completed valentine cards display beautifully and create a playful backdrop as they dry.
Mint green walls give a soft base to this living room and provides a beautiful complimentary color to the coral details. A coral chandelier with natural stick texture hangs between ceiling beams over the large tufted coffee table. A pair of armchairs echo the coral shade in their wavy striped pattern. A simple white sofa is brought to life with decorative throw pillows, and a large textured area rug covers the floor.
This master bathroom has an indoor and outdoor feel with French doors allowing access to a balcony beyond the soaking tub. A graphic pattern on the balcony floor works well with the indoor tile floor. A modern, glass chandelier hangs next to the skylight for a great, bright pairing of natural and artificial lighting. A simple black duck outline picture breaks up the blank space on the wall.
Just off the kitchen and dining area, the new sitting room has modern slate floors and simple, gray linen window treatments. The home's original wainscoting was removed, modernizing the space, and the walls were painted a warm beige. To add contrast to the room, Joanna brought in bright yellow pillows and shiny, metallic lamps and tables, while a white picket gate with the work "family" attached to it hangs above the cozy, white sofa, softening the space.

For the lady of the home, designers created a dressing room. The ceiling in the space is outfitted with the custom, cherry millwork that runs throughout the rest of the home, while a chandelier hangs elegantly in the center. A wall full of drawers and cabinets give the owner plenty of space for her clothes, while an adjacent wall has shelves to house her shoes. To make the space even more elegant, designers brought in a cozy leather couch, a pair of fuzzy ottomans and a soft, plush rug. Finally, a piece of Prada artwork ties the space together.
From the walls to the floor to the beamed ceiling, wood finishes wrap this multipurpose living space, giving it a cocooned and cozy feel. The Jackson Hole, Wyoming, cabin serves as a vacation retreat for the owners and their extended families and friends. In this open-concept room, the kitchen, living room, media room, game room and dining space all combine, allowing the occupants to hang out together while enjoying individual activities.
