A color palette of muted gray, cream, black and vibrant yellow tells a modern mountain design story in the living room from the HGTV Dream Home 2014.

Jenelle Isaacson of Living Room Realty played up the architectural details of this home's trim by playing down the body color of the home. She found the perfect dark gray for the base that worked with the indirect light of the Oregon skies. Next, she painted the door details, columns and porch ceilings a simple white, really making them pop.
