  • HGTV Green Home 2011 Girls Room

    Pretty in Pink

  • Chic Stripes

    Although tight on square footage, the homeowner made the most of her bedroom by opting for a full size bed, then pairing it with clear acrylic side tables that don't take up any visual space. Design: Brian Patrick Flynn

  • Graphic Teal

    After a one-week redesign, this master bedroom received a major overhaul with minimal mess and disruption. To lighten and brighten the room, the dingy carpet and padding were both removed in four-foot strips before a whitewashed wood laminate floating floor was installed atop the subfloor. The walls were painted a bold shade of teal along with a multi-tone tray ceiling. When originally asked what they wanted their updated bedroom to look like, the homeowners stated, \"We want bright and cheery. Even though it's a bedroom, we still want it bright. And graphic.\" Design: Brian Patrick Flynn

  • Red Accents

    Prior to a makeover, this master bedroom was in contractor-grade condition, from its neutral carpet to the beige paint on its walls. Taking inspiration from its colorful abstract art, the room received a new identity with shades of blue accented with fire-engine red. Design: Brian Patrick Flynn

  • Deep Purple

    To make what was a juvenile girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, its walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents.

    Disney?Pixar's Toy Story series served as inspiration for the bedroom design, punctuated by bright colors, interesting patterns and toys galore. Design: Linda Woodrum

    Classic Combo

    Kelly green and fire-engine red are complementary colors that we most often associate with the holidays. To give this classic combo year-round utility, throw dark brown in the mix. Design: Brian Patrick Flynn

  • Red Wall Bedroom

    Jolt of Energy

    To add a jolt of energy to this otherwise minimalistic, neutral bedroom, the wall behind the bed was painted a shade of red from Dunn-Edwards called Red Contrast. This is an excellent design trick for homeowners who love red but find it too high-energy for a whole bedroom. Although the red wall becomes a focal point upon entering the room, it's out of sight once lying in bed. Design: Brian Patrick Flynn

  • Bold Designs

    Make a statement in the most intimate space in your home with bold designs and bright hues. The striped wall treatment in the master bedroom of the HGTV Urban Oasis 2013 is inspired by the large white suspension posts of the Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge and draws the eye from the headboard across the ceiling and to the room's opposing wall.
