Blue Family Room With Slipcovered Furniture

Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Divine Design," uses neutral slipcovers to create cozy, kid-friendly seating in this playful basement. A durable wood coffee table is the perfect spot for playing family board games or creating beautiful artwork. Muted green carpet throughout keeps this space light while still providing camouflage for inevitable spills.

Contemporary Living Room With Collage Wall Art

Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Divine Design" and "Candice Tells All," explains how to design with the latest trends in mind. While keeping larger pieces the same, such as sofas and tables, Olson suggests adding trendy colors and styles in small pieces, like pillows, blankets and lampshades. This room adds pops of color in accent pillows and chair cushions, while the main pieces remain neutral.

High-Tech Gray Contemporary Bath With Remote Control Toilet

For this stunning bathroom, designer Candice Olson of Candice Tells All pulls out all the technology stops, including heated flooring, a steam shower and a remote-controlled toilet that features a nightlight, bidet and even a self-cleaning function. Large square tiles form the wall behind the freestanding tub adding glamorous sparkle. Candice brings character to the room by repurposing the homeowner's dresser as the vanity.

Spice Up the Guest Room

If cooler fall weather also means hosting weekend guests, swap out lightweight summer bedding for heavier linens in rich fall shades, like pumpkin, russet or gold, as design diva Candice Olsen did here. Changing just a few key pieces is an easy way to refresh a bedroom's look, plus your guests will appreciate bunking in such a well-appointed and cozy room.

Brown Contemporary Living Room With Rustic Coffee Table

Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Candice Tells All," created this living room that blends style and function. She says, "It's important to know what makes the most sense for your lifestyle and home, so don't choose colors, fabrics or even materials that won't work for your family, children or pets." This living room's rustic wood coffee table, dark upholstered armchair and patterned area rug ensure a family-friendly space.

Refined Contemporary

This bright and airy master bathroom is a true retreat away from it all. A glass enclosed shower and two floating vanities allow the eye to flow through the space. The wow factor is a curtain of crystal-like beads used to create a waterfall accent wall around the window. Design by Candice Olson.

Clean the Kitchen and Other Rooms Where Guests Gather

When preparing for your outdoor entertaining, don't overlook spaces inside the house where guests may congregate, particularly the entryway, kitchen and bathrooms.

Modern Design, Spa-Like Conveniences

Designer Candice Olson of Candice Tells All fills this glitzy bathroom with spa-like amenities, including heated flooring, a deep soaking tub and a two-person rain shower head. For a wow factor, Candice hangs faceted chains behind the tub for a bit of sparkle to contrast the antique wood dresser.

White Kitchen With Gray and Orange Floor

Known for her super luxe, traditional spaces, design diva Candice Olson focused on function as well as form when designing this long galley-style kitchen for a busy family of four. She chose white wall cabinets to keep the space bright but decided on a dark stain for the island to break things up. Gray, gold and black linoleum floor tiles add a playful touch and echo the colors found in the glass tile backsplash.
