A calm color scheme of cream, white and pale blue brings a coastal feel to this contemporary master suite. Floor length curtains add privacy from the many windows. A plush, pin-tucked comforter pairs with a mix of neutral and blue pillows, creating a soothing place to relax, and at the foot of the bed, an upholstered bench offers a comfy spot to take your shoes off.
HGTV fan Beachyone wanted guests to be surrounded by the soothing feel of the ocean both indoors and out. The guest bedroom at this beachfront home was turned into a vacation oasis with a pastel color scheme of green, peach and white, and accessorized with wicker baskets, marine life prints and dark Roman shades to keep out the sun for afternoon naps. To make your guests feel comfortable and welcome, keep the amenities and feel of a hotel in mind. Maintain a soothing color scheme, plenty of pillows, storage space and bathroom essentials. And of course, mirror the home's surroundings. The weathered oars, sand-filled table lamps and natural accessories will constantly remind them that they're on vacation.

The homeowners wanted a kitchen that felt modern, yet comforting, so designers mixed a soft blue color scheme with striking, white countertops to create this elegant, transitional kitchen design.

To create the unique sense of calm needed for someone who spends most of their time on the road, the designers crafted her living room using a neutral color palette — with a twist. Here, significant pops of pale pink stand out against the white walls while complementing the gray sofa.

The graphic patterns and bold colors characteristic of midcentury style can overwhelm a small space. But with a little creativity you can get the same effect, as designer Michelle Lord did in this bathroom update. Adding a lattice panel between the vanity and toilet/bath area not only created a sense of privacy but also incorporated pattern and texture, without straying from the all-white and wood palette.
A framed ski poster, displayed at the entrance to this ski-style dorm, hints at the room's color palette.

An industrial-style black queen-sized canopy bed with statement light fixture above are two of the stars of this clean and contemporary guest bedroom, with an unexpected color scheme that combines ultra-white, black and Kelly green.

A large white shelving unit surrounds the TV, creating a stylish display area for media components and decorative items. A small black bar area is illuminated with three globe-shaped gold pendant lights, adding a touch of glamour to this sleek space.

A color palette of white, espresso and red is carried through this home's hallway and bathroom and into a bedroom, creating a unified design style.

A silver, white and cream color palette lends a glamorous yet soothing look to the hall bathroom of HGTV Green Home 2011, which features quartz countertops and a silver-leafed mirror. 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.
The monochromatic white palette shows you don’t need to add color to the walls, countertops or floors to make a bathroom stylish, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build. The Atlanta firm renovated the outdated bathroom, removing the heavy tilework from the walls and creating a clean, modern bathroom with open shelves. They also opted against extras such as crown molding.
A black dining table and dark-stained chairs provide stark contrast to the room's tropical blue and pale yellow color palette. The Grecian key pattern detail in the white credenza mimics the pattern in the dining chair seats, and a starburst mirror provides a touch of glamour to the sleek space. A large picture window allows plenty of natural light and supplies incredible city views.
In this bedroom space, designers wanted to keep the space feeling clean and bright like the rest of the home, so they kept the color palette neutral and warm with a subtle, gray and white look. For a little extra comfort, a sitting area was added to the room and is separated from the main bedroom space by a curtain that adds privacy to both spaces.
Deep blue trim frames this bright and stylish girl's bedroom as well as matches the built in shelf unit covering one wall. A raspberry pink stripe on the ceiling, upholstered desk bench, throw pillow and small decorative details create a beautiful pop of accent color throughout the room. The gray carpet and chair keeps the room looking light without using a monochromatic white palette.
This kitchen and living room combo includes bright, fresh color, for a "happy" feel. The kitchen opens into a comfy living room which makes a perfect space for entertaining. A coffee table holds plants and stacks of books; nearby sofas and chairs are perfect for reading. The island in the kitchen is surrounded by basic white stools, and art in the nearby dining room sets a whimsical but classy atmosphere.
One of the largest factors in pulling together a cohesive holiday color scheme in a large space is the Christmas tree. Everything on and around the tree was chosen to coordinate with the rest of the room, from the dove grey and white tones to the ribbon garland, ornaments and gift wrap on its branches.
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.
