A lady’s lounge by Amy Morris for a Southeastern Designer Showhouse brings in rust and gold hues that keep the space feminine yet approachable.

Clean modern forms are the defining element in this room, with a sleek sectional and Milo Baughman-inspired chairs combined with minimalist white cabinetry.

This spectacular rustic-modern living room, from the HGTV Dream Home 2014, features a soaring A-frame ceiling and a striking wall of windows that showcases a wide grove of pine trees.

Drapes mimic the curtains around the canopy bed giving this traditional master bedroom an elegant and romantic feel. A ribbed bed comforter adds texture to the room while an orange, yellow and green rug and pink floral throw pillow and matching tufted bench add color to the neutral theme.

Benches have a more informal and inviting vibe than the usual set of chairs, plus you can fit extra guests. It’s OK if the wood finishes don’t match—they’ll blend just fine. If you want to pair an upholstered bench with upholstered chairs, stick with equally rich shades, like these yellow and blue jewel tones. Find upholstered kinds with turned legs from Wisteria or get them secondhand. The diamond-print fabric on this one is by Perennials. (Room design by Jenn Feldman Designs)

This kitchen's crisp, clean white design shows just how much a bit of color can make an impact.

In the fall, why not try orange bell peppers paired with chrysanthemums?
