Oftentimes, the stairs are the most neglected area of the home. Cortney and Bob, however, wanted to give these stairs an obvious feminine touch to coordinate with the living room by adding vertical stripes in soft pastel hues. The pink and blue stripes instantly make the stairs more visually appealing and turn them into this home's inviting entryway.
Every woman needs a space to call her own, and this living room definitely elicits a sophisticated feel just for her. An eye-catching wallpapered wall becomes the living room's centerpiece and sets the stage for pops of red throughout the space. Surrounding neutral walls and furniture provide the perfect balance against the colorful accents.
In this urban loft, Cortney and Bob used simple designs and decor to make a big impact fitting for the space's small size. The photo wall collage and vibrant area rug produce the right amount of energy and boldness without making the room feel cramped or overwhelming.
When dealing with a small space, the best rule of thumb is to keep the design relatively simple. Cortney and Bob wanted to revamp this shared bedroom without taking away from the urban city feel it naturally evokes. They added funky bicycle-themed wallpaper and kept the surrounding accessories contemporary and minimal to conserve space.
Cortney and Bob updated this loft-style kitchen with contemporary cabinets and stainless steel accents — including the stunning two-tiered island — to bring purpose and functionality back to this cooking space.
To give this contemporary kitchen a unique and edgy feel, Cortney and Bob integrated industrial vintage pieces, such as the rusty red rolling cart and metal shop stools, as well as thrift store accessories. For a bit of contrast against the black walls, they added a gold crystal chandelier as the kitchen's primary light source.
This ultra-modern and urban living room design shares both feminine and masculine elements for an ideal coed space. By keeping the decor and accessories to a minimum, Cortney and Bob allowed the stenciled wall art and symbolic area rug to speak volumes on their own.
Nothing says eclectic and retro quite like the combination of industrial metal letters, pastel hues and a mid-century modern dining set. And the animal-friendly artistic take on animal busts provides a surprising and whimsical element to the space.
Mid-century modern furnishings can be combined with various design pieces for an eclectic yet balanced look. Cortney and Bob extended the retro vibe from the dining room into the living room by using mid-century modern furniture with contemporary ghost-style coffee tables and colorful accessories.
Cortney and Bob turned this rundown high school storage room into a state-of-the-art student-athlete lounge. The spacious facility now features a high-end exercise area, a comfortable lounge with flat-screen TVs and plenty of seating areas for students to hang out. To dramatically enhance the ultra-tall walls and cover open windows, Cortney and Bob added photographic banner-style window treatments.
Party-Ready Living Room
To get this ultra-spacious living room ready for the homeowner's upcoming real estate media party, Cortney and Bob dramatically transformed the space from floor to ceiling. Starting with the floors, they added a classic black-and-white checkerboard pattern. To draw attention to the high ceilings and double windows, the designers added glittered artwork, streaming garland and extravagant crystal chandeliers.
