A sleek, sharp island fills the floor space in this shining midcentury modern kitchen. Mustard yellow bar chairs add a retro influence and counter the bright finishes of the walls and cabinetry. Gray and white tile create a full wall backsplash pattern behind floating shelves and a stainless steel range hood. Glass pendant lights bring extra light to solidify the bright finish.
Tamara’s bedroom is a far cry from the high-energy of the living area. Away from the bright colors and energetic patterns, this is a space designed for relaxation. The dark gray walls set an intimate mood, overlaid by black and white accents that continue the calm feeling. Warm pops of pink from the bedding provide contrast. The art in this space is simple and focused, a tribute to the designer, her husband, and the home that they share.
To create a classic, inviting look in the entryway to this home, Joanna added black and white tile flooring to her design. To update that look and connect this space to the rest of the first floor, she carried the gray trim and wainscoting into this space. New, traditional light fixtures help to light the space, and a rustic hallway table adds a place to display candlesticks and fresh flowers, adding additional pieces of a classic touch.
To create a focal point in the space, designers started with white walls to reflect light and make this small master bedroom feel open and bright. Then, they decided to hang a woven tapestry that adds warmth to the space, while adding reminiscence of the couple's globe trotting days. Finally, French doors were installed, helping natural light to flow into the space brighten it, but gray curtains were hung to help control the light and add privacy in the room.
In the powder room, designers wanted to continue the comfortable, modern ranch style they started in the living room, so they anchored their design in the white shiplap that covers most of the walls in the house. Then, they added a wood vanity with a gray countertop that echoes the colors of the furniture in the living room. Finally, designers added a bit of edgy contrast with a black mirror, black fixtures and black sconces.
Designer Genevieve Gorder created her lovely transitional master suite using a soft, airy color palette on HGTV's Genevieve's Renovation. Antique Moroccan doors lead into a dreamy walk-in closet, and a light gray marble fireplace creates a stunning focal point in the room. A white media table balances a weathered dresser on the other side of the fireplace, which is a practical way to include a television in the room's design without making it the focus of the space.
This bright and open living space features a timeless influence with contemporary decor. A blue chevron accent pillow adds a touch of color over the tufted charcoal gray sofa. A faux fur throw over a wicker chair is topped with a bird nest picture pillow repeating the touch of blue from the sofa. White details compliment the blue accents and make a crisp look that connects each room in the open floor plan.
This shower room takes spacious to a whole new level. A glass divider wall defines the shower space next to the gold faucet while the rest of the room remains open. Gray marble subway tile surrounds the walls while smaller tile coats the floor. A white claw foot tub rests against the wall opposite the shower with matching gold feet, faucets and towel racks.
Patterns are harmoniously woven together to create a colorful master bedroom design. The key to adding different patterns to a room is to choose different prints and colors. A striped nightstand contrasts with the interlocking scroll design on the yellow wallpaper and ties the pink of the ottoman with the pink tweed pillows. A soft, pattern in the gray-and-white window treatments parallel the colors of the bedding and acts as a backdrop for the pale, blue armchair.
To create this nursery, designers first painted the walls a pewter gray color; then, they added birch tree and owl decals to make the space fun and decorative. Once the walls were painted, designers brought in an IKEA dresser and added hand-crafted owl drawer pulls to tie the dresser in to the design of the space. They also added a multicolor rug, a white crib and a modern rocking chair to complete the space.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah tied in the blue and green tones of her client's favorite color, turquoise, in the living room's decor. Bright green cymbidium orchids are a bright contrast against the striped turquoise wallpaper of the fireplace surround. Sarah also added gray and dark blue flower vases and white photo frames to balance the wallpaper's bright, saturated hue.
When choosing elements for holiday decorations, keep the style of your space in mind. In the bonus room, which has a sleek, contemporary look (despite the vintage ski-house accents), the design team layered on the holiday charm, but stuck with a cool palette of blue and white, with a few touches of black and gray. The result strikes just the right note for the room.
By keeping the accessories of this bathroom simple and straightforward, Pure Interiors Design could amplify the room's elegance with dramatic toile wallpaper and a fanciful gold-framed mirror.

The room features both warm and cool tones, and plenty of textures, like the brown suede and velvet barstools, white marble countertops, and colorful patterned dining chairs.
To create the perfect boy's space that can grow with the homeowners' young, teenage son, designers started with white walls and ash gray wood floors that would match the rest of the home's neutral, eclectic design.

Then, they hung bits of art on the walls that showcased his interest-sports items, beach balls, band posters-creating a unique space perfectly tailored to its owner.

The chrome showerhead coordinates with the double towel rack located adjacent to the shower door.
By using neutral colors for walls and fixtures, bathrooms can change colors with their towel and accessory choices.

It is divided into distinct zones including a separate shower and changing area.
