HGTV's Design Star judge Candice Olson complimented this design said, "First impressions are everything in the visual word of design. The moment you enter this apartment you feel the wow factor." The eclectic vibe of this living room features a traditional gray sofa, two-toned turquoise walls, a plush red coffee table and ottoman, and a wooden swing seat. The floral patterned brown and white rug adds depth to the design.
The bright orange, textured accent wall provides contrast against the exposed brick in this eclectic dining room. The wooden dining table and unique art give the space an earthy feel, toning down the vibrancy of the wall's orange hue.
HGTV Design Star contestant Danielle Colding made over this living room for the final challenge of season seven. Now, the non-functioning fireplace serves a new purpose: focal point of this eclectic living room design.
A hot pink acrylic chair adds a powerful punch of color to this eclectic space, complete with a black and white animal rug.
This modern gray bedroom features lime green artwork that acts as a unique headboard and blue and green coordinating accessories on the bed and nightstands.
A sectional divides this open living space while a solid brick wall adds rugged visual interest that complements the hardwood floors.
This neutral open dining room designed by HGTV Design Star contestant Stacey Cohen holds a hint of Asian style with simple clean-lined furnishings, a tall storage chest and a potted bamboo plant.
In HGTV Design Star season 4, Dan and Nathan painted an unexpected and bold graphical design across the walls and floor of this dining room. “I don't know if it's a pixelated map of the islands, stylized crime-scene outlines or a macro image of popcorn but I loveeeeeet!” says designer Candice Olson. “This room is a testament to the power of paint and how it can easily and inexpensively transform a space. We’re not talking simply color on the walls here but rather a big, bold powerful image (of something) that engulfs this space; walls, floor and all – wow! The lumber on the far wall is a brilliant design stroke adding warmth to the cool grays. The uniform, vertical application brings visual order, contrasting the great graphic chaos happening around the table. A Parsons-style table like this looks great but really doesn’t function well for seating lots of people. I would have liked to see a hollow pedestal table with the hole in the center used for low greens/grasses, or as a built-in ice bucket for wine and cold drinks. Right now the tall leaves in the center mean fighting your way through the jungle to see who you’re dining with. A round paper-lantern pendant or two over the table would provide beautiful light for dining and speak to the shapes of the ingenious wall-mounted light fixtures beyond. Small criticism for a room that is truly inspiring.”
This kitchen features natural wood cabinets and a purple island. Counters are done in marble which nicely contrasts with the stainless appliances and traditional chandelier.
"For Stacey, the carnation is a hard-working flower that has the possibility of being more than it appears on the surface. Her desk and chair seem both modern and traditional at once, showcasing the complexity of the flower she has chosen," said judge Vern Yip of HGTV's Design Star. This transitional room features traditional decor with a modern twist. The two-tone walls add color to the white furniture, wood flooring and dark wooden desk.
