When appropriate and for parties, Rollins likes to use tablecloths on plain outdoor-ready tables "because it feels more inviting." Using classic, simple terra-cotta pots throughout her garden allows her to keep a coordinated look and the pots can easily be used indoors as well.
After a long day out in the sun, the owners can retreat upstairs to this serene master bedroom. A large bed with soft blue-and-white linens makes a comfortable crash pad, while a private patio invites the owners to catch the sunset.
For Cynthia Moreno, the West Hollywood-based creative behind Hot Pink Pineapples, cane means warmth and texture without bulk or heaviness. “The natural fibers really pop with light colors, specifically pastels,” Cyn tells HGTV.com. A trip to Byron Bay, Australia last year inspired her blush dining room, which plays host to Joybird’s Florence Sideboard. “[Natural fibers against neutral colors] creates this modern island vibe that’s light, subtle and clean," she says.
Modern Spacious White Mudroom With Red Brick Flooring
Brick floors in mudrooms and entryways are great at handling whatever dirt and mud your kids track in — not to mention dirt is also way less obvious on brick than it is on rugs and other flooring. Designed by Bria Hammel Interiors.
Cane back chairs, touches of blush and all that creamy color? This simple, elegant dining room may be the best in the house. Amy added a vintage crystal chandelier from Facebook Marketplace and, most recently, new dining chairs. The best part is she gave her fireplace surround a $10 makeover using chalk paint, and it’s so cute.
This design vignette in HGTV Dream Home 2013 commands attention for its thoughtful use of reclaimed materials and shiny surfaces. A floating shelf crafted by carpenter David Brown makes use of weathered, reclaimed fencing.

Contemporary Gray Master Bedroom with a Red Persian Rug
The new first-floor master suite includes a spacious bedroom with wall paint in a soothing cool-tone gray offset by a classic Persian rug in bold red and a king-sized bed with substantive wooden bedframe and button-tufted headboard, both in charcoal gray.
Recycling is a cornerstone of Atlanta homeowners Helene Ross and Eric Connolly's lives. The couple actually live next door with their five rescue dogs and three cats. But this historic West End bungalow is their latest pet project, an upcycled marvel that had been in serious disrepair which they refurbished themselves. "It was the problem house of the neighborhood" says Eric. The couple used salvaged goods from the local Lifecycle Building Center to bring their project in without spending a fortune. A high-end non-profit salvage yard with a mission of rescuing historical elements and keeping them out of landfills, Lifecycle rescues appliances, millwork, doors and anything else you can think of from properties that homeowners can then purchase at a deep discount. A number of businesses and film productions also rely on Lifecycle for vintage design elements and there is always the chance that the vintage wooden door or mantel they pick up made a cameo in a Hollywood film production.
