Black and white bedding and sleek furniture are offset by a striking accent wall in this bedroom. Both daring and sophisticated, the emerald green agate motif adds a splash of color behind the platform bed. Small houseplants add a hint of color in the corners of the otherwise neutral room.
An emerald green sofa is the focal point of this mid-century modern living room. The living room is adorned with pink accents and a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf.
Colorful Classic Kitchen
A white kitchen doesn't have to be ALL white. Here, designer Andrea Schumacher opted for just two small shelves in lieu of upper cabinets, making the fanciful floral wallpaper the star. For contrast, she chose an emerald green tone from the wallpaper to paint the kitchen's island. The standout green piece complements the blue floral wallpaper, the Murano glass chandeliers, white cabinetry and Carrara marble backsplash.
A Pouf of Color
This living room features blue accents like the blue bird paper weight and the blue armchairs. A single emerald green pouf provides another pop of color.
Emerald Green + Navy
Splash of Green
The master bedroom's large walk-in closet provides ample space for storing clothing and shoes. An emerald green center table offers plenty of storage space for accessories, such as belts and jewelry.
Preppy Guest Room
The second-floor bedroom at HGTV Smart Home 2014 provides a quiet retreat for overnight guests. A color scheme of blue, green, white and khaki serves as a springboard for a preppy, sophisticated style. A crisp white duvet and shams, embellished with satin blue stitching, lend hotel-inspired luxury.
An emerald green paneled door opens onto a foyer with an arched ceiling, curved walls and a graceful hanging staircase with a bronze and iron railing. The original, herringbone-laid hardwood floors lead to adjoining formal rooms. Built in 1937, the 8,790-square-foot house was designed by H.T. Lindeberg, one of this country’s most prominent residential architects during the first half of the 20th century.
The small sunroom is given a burst of color and pattern with the vintage-inspired carpet and '50s vinyl chairs. Simple sheers have been added to the entryway for privacy and separation.
Earthy Breakfast Nook
A casual breakfast nook is styled very naturally as if someone was just there. The earthiness of the rustic table and breadboards is contrasted with the bright green vinyl chairs and graphic mid-century wine rack. A breakfast nook is the perfect place to add a small playful art vignette while you sip your morning coffee.
Wall to ... Ceiling
In a playful move by the designer, emerald green covers the walls and ceiling in the spacious game room while the billiard table shows off a ruby red. Double doors allow easy access to a patio and walkway.
Enchanting Master Bedroom
Damask-print pillows top a small white elegant sofa in this formal master bedroom.The padded headboard with nailhead trim accent the faux canopy style of the bed and set the formal tone.
The Venetian glass tiles around the connecting bath mantel are original. A salvaged wooden panel found in Paris was painted in a neutral tone, which highlights the watery greens and contemporary blown glass vases.
Vibrant Kid's Room
An ornate sage green chandelier with exposed bulbs hangs in a green and white bedroom with floral patterned wall paper and large roman shades. A day bed works in the small bedroom and provides storage along with the green glass-front bookcase.
Slim-fitting slipcovers on a chair and bench complement the trim, transitional lines in this living room. Neutral walls, hand-painted floors and well-balanced accessories achieve a polished yet unfussy look.
Subtle and Simple
A big shelf decorating don't is lining up items of the same height. Their uniform size can appear flat and boring. Instead, "mix different heights by contrasting high and low to keep the eye traveling," says Mary Carol. When gathering pieces to decorate shelves, make sure you have a combination of short, medium and tall objects. Design by Erinn Valencich.
