A stick strung to the exposed ceiling beams creates a simple but attractive hanging rack for coat and clothes storage next to the black front door. Free floor space between the wall and the striped black and white rug is perfect for setting aside boots, creating a homemade mudroom. A wood ladder leaning against the wall displays a tapestry collection adding neutral tones and great texture to the space.
A light wood bunk bed features circular cutouts, a fireman's pole and a slide leading from the top bunk to the floor for a fun and playful bedroom design. A blue and green checkered rug creates a turf-like look and matches the green and blue hues used in the cityscape wall mural. A hanging chair dangles below painted clouds for a swing-like element.
The original plan was to do a deck off the kitchen, but at the last minute, James got the idea to make it a screened porch. No bugs here! With a striped outdoor sofa from CB2, a wood-slice coffee table from World Market and a sunny round rug from Frontgate, it’s a chic continuation of their living space — and the family’s go-to spot for watching movies with a projector.
A dark wood china cabinet, dining room table and padded chairs contrast beautifully against the soft green walls in this contemporary dining room. Above the picture railing, the walls are painted white to add visual height to the space and to showcase the arch-topped window. A neutral but patterned rug sits over the hardwood floor to anchor the dining table.
To make this small(ish) apartment feel bigger during its renovation, the once-sunken floor into the living room was raised to create one seemingly larger, more open space. The carpeted floor was removed and replaced with wood. A comfortable entry unifies the space.

Large wood coffee table lettering spells out "LIVE" as the focal point of this room design. Faux shutters frame the windows, adding a creative look to the large wall. A cozy sofa is finished with a blue striped fabric and ruffled skirt. Orange throw pillows pop against the pale coloring of the sofa and pull out the rich tones in the patterned rug. Word wall art keeps with the motivational theme of the coffee table.
The homeowners wanted a simple, modern bedroom design, so designers started with sleek, neutral tile on the floor and a complementary wood paneling on the wall. Then, they added a four post bed and pendant light to create height in the design. For comfort, designers added a silk rug and black and white curtains that help to diffuse the sunlight that comes in through the room's expansive windows.
Minimal furniture and ample natural lighting in this uniquely shaped living room give it a spacious and light feel. A neutral leather sofa blends beautifully with the white surrounding walls and neutral floor rug. A burnt orange chair cushion, built in wood shelving unit and hardwood flooring adds warm tones to the bright design. A tall, curved floor lamp and guitar pick shaped coffee table add shape to round out the look.
Black-and-white seashell-patterned wallpaper draws the eye in this coastal living room. A blue sectional curves through the room and is decorated with pink and navy throw pillows for added color. An area rug adds texture over the natural look of the hardwood floor. A single natural wood beam creates a simple mantel, complements the floor finish and breaks up the white space of the wall.
In the living room, designers wanted to create a timeless, intimate space for the homeowners, so they started with a patterned rug and chose pieces of furniture that had some of the same colors. Then, they implemented a mix of materials such as glass, wood, metal and textiles to make the space eclectic, yet soft and warm, creating a grand room that is still very homey, welcoming and comfortable.
Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Candice Tells All," created this living room that blends style and function. She says, "It's important to know what makes the most sense for your lifestyle and home, so don't choose colors, fabrics or even materials that won't work for your family, children or pets." This living room's rustic wood coffee table, dark upholstered armchair and patterned area rug ensure a family-friendly space.
Don’t be afraid of placing furniture in front of window. If it’s not a bulky piece, and has an open bottom like this wheeled side table, it’ll work because natural light will still be able to flow into the room. The open cog-wheel on set of lamps also allow daylight to shine through. The beefy wood-plank dining table and bench work perfectly with the industrial side table and sisal rug.
In this kids' bathroom, a skylight lets in plenty of natural light to brighten the space, while bold navy and green accent the space. The vanities are split here, making the space both functional and practical, allowing each child to have his own sink in the space, and wooden stools help the boys reach their sinks. Built-in shelves provide storage in the space, while an alligator shower curtain and zebra striped rug add personality and fun.
The designers wanted the wow factor in the foyer of this home, so they added an art piece in the ceiling to draw the eye upward and add texture and dimension. Suspended from the ceiling are white pendant lights that give the space a little bit of modern flair, while a green velvet bench resting beneath a unique wood framed mirror makes the space pop. To give some boundaries to the space, designers added a woven rug.
HGTV's Design Star judge Candice Olson complimented this design said, "First impressions are everything in the visual word of design. The moment you enter this apartment you feel the wow factor." The eclectic vibe of this living room features a traditional gray sofa, two-toned turquoise walls, a plush red coffee table and ottoman, and a wooden swing seat. The floral patterned brown and white rug adds depth to the design.
Comfort and convenience define this contemporary sitting room, designed by TriplePoint Design Build, with its built-in cabinetry and minimalist furnishings.

The wood floor is partially covered by a area rug in a brown and beige circular design. For convenience sake, a bathroom has been included adjacent to the room.
In the open design of this home, a stylish modern sitting room is situated next to the wood-saturated kitchen. A modern white leather sofa shines with natural light from the large windows on the back wall. A tufted leather chair and neutral shag rug define the perimeter of the area while keeping it open and connected to the rest of the home. A turquoise serving tray and green throw pillows add small pops of color.
The light hardwood flooring brightens this traditional living room with neutral sectional.
