Designing to Sell From Design Star Challenge 2

For their second Design Star Challenge, the remaining nine contestants split into three teams of three and were challenged to design rooms in a house that's been on the market for eight months!

Stronger artwork expressions and some lighter colors in fabrics and accessories would have helped balance out the dark cabinets. For example, white cookie jars on the countertop and a large white bowl full of bright green apples would have significantly punched up the visual appeal of the space. Brighter kitchen hardware would have also made the look more current. Brushed stainless steel, brushed chrome or brushed pewter hardware and accessories help make a traditional home slightly more transitional, updating it while broadening its appeal.
