Great Room: Before
This cavernous great room has loads of potential — and lots of space to fill.
Great Room: After
Designers Luca Paganico and Danielle Colding turned this vast room into a warm, inviting space with the right hue (a warm gray) and large-scale furniture and accessories.
Great Room: Open Shelving
This open white bookcase serves two functions in this space; it's both a functional place to store accessories and an asymmetric focal point that contrasts with the moody wall hue.
Great Room: Sculptural Accents
The room features a clean, simple color scheme, with textural accents, like this ribbed vase, standing in for bold color.
Great Room: Art and Architecture
Empty picture moldings create architectural detail and add interest on the wall in lieu of art pieces.
Great Room: Do It Yourself
Create this look at home with strips of molding or empty picture frames painted in cohesive hues. Get step-by-step instructions to make your own arrangement.
Great Room: Right-Size Furniture
In a space this large, it's key to select furniture that meets the scale of the room, like this pair of sofas large enough to seat the entire Design Star cast.
Great Room: Metallic Touches
Bits of shine throughout the room, like this silver throw pillow, create a little glamour in this comfortable space.
Master Bedroom: Before
This master bedroom started out with a massive black marble fireplace and two-toned built-ins.
Master Bedroom: After
Designers Bex Hale and Kris Swift gave the room a bold makeover, with plum walls and details that echo the room's existing architecture.
Master Bedroom: Neon Inspiration
This glass table covered with strips of neon tape was the inspiration for the room's bold palette. To create a playful vignette, the designers attached an oversized, light-up matchstick to the table with a tape "cord."
Master Bedroom: Art Installation
This playful art installation by designer Bex Hale artfully combined her rustic style with partner Kris Swift's bright, modern aesthetic.
Master Bedroom: Cohesive Woodwork
The designers repeated the two-toned wood inlays seen in the existing built-ins, and painted the bottoms of each bed black to echo the hue in the marble fireplace.
Master Bedroom: Neon Niches
Kris repeated the striped tape pattern from his glass table inside each headboard niche.
Master Bedroom: Striped Mantel
Even more neon tape makes the mantel of the black marble fireplace stand out.
Master Bedroom: Natural Elements
A curvy driftwood lamp tones down the room's bright hues and rigid shapes.
Guest Bedroom One: Before
This bedroom has great detailing, like the built-in wood shelving and the exaggerated molding.
Guest Bedroom One: After
Designers Mikel Welch and Britany Simon transformed this room into a space that's both colorful and comfortable.
Guest Bedroom One: Bring on the Stripes
Striped duvet covers in citron and white contrast beautifully against the blue walls.
Guest Bedroom One: Reading Nook
An oversized, whimsical chair and vibrant yellow throw pillow (hand-sewn by the designers) invite you into this reading nook.
Guest Bedroom One: Think Pink
Small bits of pink throughout the room create a cohesive color scheme without seeming too matchy-matchy.
Guest Bedroom One: Double-Duty
This hard-working nook can be used two ways: as a nightstand or as a vanity for early-morning wake-up calls.
Guest Bedroom One: Whimsical Taxidermy
Cast metal ram sculptures in bright pink add a hint of whimsy to this bedroom. A black-and-white bed crown and white linen curtains frame the focal point.
Guest Bedroom One: Global Chic
An oversized ottoman reupholstered with a scroll-printed, distressed shower curtain adds a worldly accent to this colorful space.
Guest Bedroom Two: Before
This room is practically devoid of architectural details, aside from a small window. The upside: It's a blank slate!
Guest Bedroom Two: After
Designers Miera Melba and Jordan Cappella combined their styles to create a glamorous, masculine space inspired by the colors of the sea.
