Comfortable, neutral furniture with casual fabrics sit atop a sisal rug for a relaxed California style. Built-in bookshelves flank the fireplace and TV wall for a full entertainment center. For contrast, a dark metal drapery rod above soft white drapery panels covers the French doors.
This low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial is now a lively children’s workspace. Artwork—hung from Ikea picture rails and curtain rods with clips—fills the room with vibrant color. In this electronics-free zone, the kids paint, draw and play games at their white craft table.
With a tight budget and teenage client, HGTV fan miles661 managed to create the perfect bedroom with a unique and custom-made, tent-style canopy.

In the master suite, designers created a warm focal point in the space with the fireplace. To create a bit of contrast, it was painted white with brown accent tiles to complement the tan walls.

Oversized tufted ottomans in dark gray create a cozy, comfortable sitting area paired with the slipcovered white sofa.

The 16-foot-wide dining space in HGTV's Dream Home 2014 feels voluminous thanks to 10-foot-high walls and a steeply-pitched ceiling featuring exposed structural beams. A wall of windows overlooks the front yard and floods the room with natural light. As interior designer Linda Woodrum chose fabrics for this room with a view, she was careful to stick with subtle patterns and solids that didn't compete with the outdoors. The flowy white draperies are mounted at the top of the wall in order to draw the eye up. A traverse rod operates on a pulley system to allow for easy adjustment.
