Mudroom Entryway With Color-Coded Cubbies and Wooden Stairs
This mudroom entryway features a set of cubbies with different colors for each family member. The mudroom leads to an attractive set of wooden stairs and includes cork wainscoting that extends four feet up the wall.
The parlor's two low-slung leather navy sofas with kiln dried solid wood frames have vertical channeling that goes up and down the sofas and adds an extra touch of visual interest to this inviting space that seats about ten people.
A globe chandelier illuminates the parlor from above. The metal frame chandelier features a safe and durable acrylic globe that looks and feels like frosted glass dissected by a central band of polished nickel that adds eclectic modern style to the room.
Rustic Modern Family Room Decor From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah aimed to create a rustic, refined feel in this multi-purpose basement family room. She chose a soft gray wall paint and Brazilian slate floor tiles to complement the home's original stone fireplace. Functional decor such as built-in cabinets and chic metal kindling bins make for a space that is gorgeous yet practical for a growing family of four.
The guest suite of the HGTV Dream Home 2012 offers its own private Juliet-style balcony, plus east-facing windows that stream light into the space. An antiqued steel and iron, marble-topped side table serves up refreshments picnic-style to complement the blue and white gingham carpeting.
This slipcovered sofa is covered with a handsome shade of navy blue. Should juices or messy hands come into contact with the slipcover, a quick toss in the washer will have it looking new. An aqua patterned throw pillow provides contrast and ties into the wall art in the background.
Don't think of beige as boring — think of it as a blank canvas. Look for geometric rugs in bright colors to punch up your bland carpet. If you can't settle on a hue, designer Holly Marsh suggest to "start with a color or a toy that makes you feel happy. You'd be surprised how far that one element can take you."
