Vintage meets modern in this eclectic navy blue living room. Stylish accents include a gold leaf wall art, black and white chevron pillows, Moroccan-style rug and brown leather chesterfield sofa.
"Smartly, the headboard allows the men's team to orient the bed to the view of the city versus back to the living room as the women and Dan have done," said Vern Yip, judge on HGTV's Design Star. The unique headboard is a shelving structure of open cubbies, perfect for displaying decor. The green striped bed cover adds color to the white shelves, walls and sheets. The shelving unit acts as a room divider, but the see-through element creates a spacious feel.
A hot pink acrylic chair adds a powerful punch of color to this eclectic space, complete with a black and white animal rug.
HGTV Design Star contestant Britany gave this once boring and mismatched living room a fashionable makeover for part of the final challenge of season seven. She used warm gray walls to tie the space together and give it a sophisticated-but-livable feel.

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 sectional divides this open living space while a solid brick wall adds rugged visual interest that complements the hardwood floors.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
