A custom library ladder is a fun accessory for the large shelving unit in this living room. The lime green pops nicely against the surrounding orange walls, and the room is unified with thick white trim. A tufted white sofa matches the trim, while wood tables blend with the hardwood floor. Midcentury-modern chairs with matching ottomans complete the space.
"For Stacey, the carnation is a hard-working flower that has the possibility of being more than it appears on the surface. Her desk and chair seem both modern and traditional at once, showcasing the complexity of the flower she has chosen," said judge Vern Yip of HGTV's Design Star. This transitional room features traditional decor with a modern twist. The two-tone walls add color to the white furniture, wood flooring and dark wooden desk.
A coral-colored rug pulls together the design in this living room, uniting the pops of color found in the curtains, artwork and pillows. The neutral chairs and sofa blend into the background and let the coral and turquoise elements shine.
Here's a fresh twist on the stodgy library: The bookcase was customized to fit around the pale gray settee, then filled with colorful books and accessories. The room is a perfect example of the rule the designers used throughout the home: Neutral building materials only, then color layered in for a firework finish.
The living, dining and family rooms open into each other and are trimmed in bright white for a fresh and dramatic appearance. A lime-green accent wall pops in the living room, and the color is repeated in the family room. A large built-in bookshelf surrounding the mounted TV provides ample storage and display space.
Thick white trim creates a cohesive look in the open design of this home. The living room features a lime-green accent wall behind a large built-in shelving unit with a custom library ladder. A round wood coffee table echoes the rich wood of the hardwood floor, and a shag rug brings a soft texture to the room.
A no-holds-barred approach to decorating results in a whimsical undersea adventure in this media room and playspace. Shell-shaped theater seats and a treasure chest-turned-entertainment console create a focal point on one wall, while colorful murals and built-in seating are presented on the adjacent wall.
The owners of this home have transformed what could have been a drab basement into a wonderful family room. A sitting area takes up half the space and is separated by narrow columns from the the back part of the room dedicated to music and games.
Recessed lighting illuminates this open concept living space with all-over brown hardwood floors and a center staircase. Red and blue upholstered furniture decorates the living room along with a sisal area rug, while red metal stools and a gray mosaic tile backsplash complete the otherwise white kitchen.
