For the Love of Yellow

Go on and embrace full color. "As soon as I saw the homeowner's bright yellow dining room chairs, I knew I wanted to do an accent wall in a near-matching color. I love how it peeks through the open-back bookcase, says Hannah Masterson of Woodland House Design LLC.

Eye-Catching and Functional

Full of country charm, this white kitchen gets a healthy dose of color with a lovely yellow island. This island is a real workhorse. It has lots of prep surface, a wraparound counter that seats three, deep drawers and cabinets for storage, and pantry space on the back.

Hello Sunshine

Bring cheeriness to your kitchen with bright yellow cabinets. "Instead of blowing a bundle on new cabinets for this client's kitchen, I brought the sunshine with paint. Prep is everything when you redo stained cabinets — if you don't sand till they're supersmooth and then prime them, the paint could chip. A satin finish is easy to wipe down and also hides imperfections that glossy ones tend to highlight," says Amanda Louise Campbell of Amanda Louise Interiors.

Animated Style

Hand-poured cement tiles from Architectural Ceramics span the entire wall in yellow and blue diamonds, making the kitchen feel energetic and lively. The mismatched barstools add an eclectic vibe to the kitchen, but also served the budget well. The custom Lawson-Fenning seats with mustard yellow upholstery were a splurge but balanced by the more affordable backless wood-and-metal stools by Arteriors.

Lively + Bright

A span of graphic yellow wallpaper by Given Campbell makes a big statement. The cabinets and trim are painted a minty fresh hue, adding to the cheery factor of this laundry room. Penny tiles laid in a playful floral pattern add a striking contrast.

In the Golden Light

A burst of yellow plays up the sunlight pouring in through the windows. "This homeowner is drawn to a bunch of different styles — traditional, rustic, country and modern — so to combine them all in a way that's eclectic but still cohesive, I relied on a limited color palette of white, black and one pop of yellow," says Sarah Sherman Samuel.

Start Your Day in Light

Surrounding windows already drenched the built-in dining niche with sunshine, but custom chairs upholstered in a yellow diamond fabric from Romo brightened the spot even more. The table with a glass top and gleaming nickel-plated base keeps the breakfast nook bright and airy.

Happiest of Hues

Oh, what a fresh coat of paint can do. "When this buffet was plain wood, it looked completely traditional — not at all what my client wanted for her modern home. Redoing it in a citrusy yellow made it playful and contemporary," says Heidi Stukenberg of Lily Field Furniture.

Childhood Favorites

A fun take on a primary color palette, this playroom pairs a pale blue with mustard yellow and red-violet. Double-duty spaces are always a win. The daybed provides an extra sleeping area for guests and with its surrounding bright floral curtains, it's the perfect spot for hiding or playing pretend theater.

Shades of Spring

Even a few small touches of yellow warm up any space. HGTV star Sabrina Soto's all-white kitchen mixes cottage and contemporary styles with ease. A two-piece geometric light fixture, as well as the triangle-printed table runner, add pops of lemon to the space.

Seeing Red (in the Best Way)

So long builder's beige, this master bathroom douses itself in lipstick red from the walls to the cabinets. White countertops break up the color flow to give the eye a place to rest. A bold flower-and-bird-print fabric makes the Roman shade a showpiece, while gold Restoration Hardware mirrors and Ralph Lauren Home sconces hike up the glam factor.

Calm yet Vibrant Retreat

The nailhead-trimmed headboard serves as a warm, neutral backdrop to the contrasting and brightly colored bedding. Solid whites, black-and-white polka dots and vivid red deliver a decidedly modern note to the vintage-inspired bedroom. Unwilling to pay big bucks for a dramatic overhead light fixture, the homeowner cobbled together her own by popping a chandelier inside a metal orb from an antiques store.

Reading in Red

Rich navy covers the walls and trim to create a completely comfortable environment. Even in a muted tone of red, the velvet armchair bursts out of the cocoon atmosphere. Paired with a leather pouf and a vintage side table, the setting is ideal for curling up with a good book.

A Welcomed Greeting

This formerly burgundy front door is taken to the next level with apple red paint. Not only is it a more inviting shade, but it also creates a wow-worthy contrast against the gray-and-white exterior.

Retro Red

In this remodeled kitchen, one-of-a-kind finds — a vintage cast-iron farmhouse sink and a 1950s supermarket sign — downplay the newness of the cabinets, granite counters and subway tile backsplash. Adding character and brilliant red color are a vintage Oriental rug, gingham café curtains and a retro clock.

Outdoor Style in Full Color

Shades of pink and red combine on this porch for a sweet yet vibrant gathering spot. The '60s furniture set — a love seat and two chairs — is reupholstered in a simple graphic pattern and then painted Dishy Coral by Sherwin-Williams. Two ceramic garden stools serve as mini coffee tables.

Bold Patterns, Bold Color

Red takes a starring role in this eclectic dining room, from the tomato-hued chandelier to the Asian curtains and Oriental rug. The mix of patterns work together because the same shade of red runs throughout. White faux-bamboo chairs tone down the formality of the oval mahogany table.

Soaring Space Grounded in Color

In this 20-plus-foot ceiling, a dreamy 4-1/2-foot-tall bronze chandelier by Townsend Design helps fill the space. "This room didn't feel very cozy at first because of the tall ceiling," says homeowner Shannon Wilkins. She layered rugs (the red wool one is from a trip to Paris), mixed a vintage woven bench with modern nightstands by Noir, added green lamps from Circa Lighting and topped the white bedding with a soft pink coverlet from Cisco Home.

Palm Springs Inspiration

A gray sectional by Kardiel gives the living room a mid-century mod vibe; the plush wool rug underfoot — a vintage Flokati — makes it extra cozy. Bright oranges and reds add warmth to the cool blues and greens. The patterned pillows, hex ottomans from Blu Dot, molded plastic Eames rocker, and gallery wall of new and vintage deliver a plethora of fun to the living room.

Casual + Collected

Grounded in a muted red vintage rug, this home office mixes streamlined pieces, like the built-in white oak desk, with mid-century modern favorites (hello, Eames lounge chair!). Surf-inspired prints in assorted sizes look unified, thanks to identical black frames.

Orange Know-How

A teal-and-white color palette set the scene in this oh-so-cheerful kitchen. Accents of orange — industrial-style barstools and graphic runners — complement the island and backsplash tiles. The two sphere pendant lights make a statement overhead and warm the space with a flash of gold set in the interior.

Delicate Brightness

A small-scale floral wallpaper and a white bed, both by Serena & Lily, and a dotted yellow fabric by Hable Construction for the curtains make the sweetest combination. The vintage painting introduces a hit of orange to the room, which is picked up in the pillows and throws on the bed.

Think in Color

With its hand-painted gold walls and touches of bright persimmon, the dining room is a lesson in traditional meets contemporary. To loosen up the formal 1980s dining set and the Parsons chairs (all inherited from family members), homeowner Emily McCarthy added slipcovers: two sewn from a graphic Kelly Wearstler fabric and four in monogrammed white denim.

Orange You Glad You Stayed?

A guest bedroom has orange and gold Mylar wallpaper for a bright and totally unexpected touch. In the hall, a silhouette in the same hue hangs as a tiny tease to the joyful, bursting-with-color space awaiting guests.

Vibrant Sensibility

The wall color (Calluna by Farrow & Ball) shifts from gray to lavender depending on the light, but acts as the ultimate neutral backdrop to the myriad of patterns in this living room. Ottomans, upholstered in a zippy arrow-print, tuck in perfectly beneath the clear acrylic console, while a graphic wool area rug adds style underfoot. However, the showstoppers of the room are the orange-and-white curtains featuring an updated Damask print.

Bold Beauty

A console lacquered in orange (Rust by Benjamin Moore), with matching linen-covered drawer fronts and leather handles, adds tons of storage — and a major pop of color — to the entry. Set in a silver frame, the photo of a leaf-strewn pier echoes the console’s vivid hue.

Modern Vintage

The house's original etched concrete walls, exposed beams and copper-hooded fireplace give this living space a distinctly retro look. A 1980s sofa is reupholstered in tufted leather and an ottoman was custom designed to match. To balance out such bulky pieces, a leggy 1960s mosaic-top coffee table and bright orange mid-century modern chair are added.

Highlighted in Orange

Deep navy lower cabinets add richness and depth to the white upper cabinets in this classic kitchen. Graphic Thibaut fabric in brilliant orange is used two ways: sewn into valances and laminated as simple roller shades. The valances are positioned low to maximize light.

Entertaining Made Cozy

Measuring 12 by 15 feet, the L-shape teak sofa from Oasis Imports welcomes a crowd around the gas-powered fire pit. The tan Sunbrella cushions are perked up by an assortment of weather-resistant pillows, with prints including white polka dots from Link Outdoor and orange squiggles from Chris Barrett.

Quirky Touches of Orange

Classic pieces, like the baby grand piano and skirted sofa, take center stage in this elegantly eclectic living room. Orange curtains in a large hexagonal print nod to the contemporary, while a neutral cowhide rug adds a slightly rustic touch. Ceramic garden stools pull double duty as drink perches and extra seating when there’s a party.

Say Yes to Brown

A surefire way to add instant warmth to any space is through natural woods and rich browns. A set of four minimalist chairs found on craigslist.org contrast with the distressed lumber of the homemade dining table, which the homeowner's sister built out of oak and pine.

Delightfully Rustic

Whitewashed plank walls set a minimal background for this living space that evokes a collected-over-time aesthetic. Shades of brown have a grounding effect to the bright white surroundings. A leather Lee Industries sofa and a rattan Palecek chair with houndstooth cushions sit on a cowhide rug layered over an old multicolor striped rug.

Timeless Charm

Butcher-block counters in a dark walnut shade introduce a touch of history and bring warmth to the black cabinets. A faded vintage rug gives the space a charming timeworn vibe.

Country Browns Meet Cottage Whites

Most of the ceilings in this house are shiplap stained Provincial by Minwax, but the script gets flipped in the bathroom, where the walls are stained and the ceiling painted. A pebble-tile floor and a quartzite countertop add a little luxe to the room.

All in the Textures

Warm-toned seagrass wallpaper gives this entryway immediate tactile appeal and an inviting atmosphere. The pink-and-brown rug is a find from a trip to Turkey and plays seamlessly with the dark-stained hardwood floors and sleek white console with silver leaf doors.

A Study in Contrasts

Even the most contemporary of spaces gets a healthy dose of warmth with beautiful woods. In addition to the sleek wooden cabinets and island, a row of wood beams — one is load-bearing, the rest are decorative — add some visual oomph overhead. Stained a rich chocolate color, they contrast with the white-painted walls and ceiling. And don't forget the hand-hewn table crafted from Indonesian rosewood that brings a fully organic element to the kitchen’s sleek surfaces.

The White, Wood, and Wow Kitchen

Neutrals at Their Best

A corner of this kitchen gains timeless appeal from the almost-6-foot-tall molding and floral Lee Jofa wallpaper that looks subtly age-faded. The banquette has seat cushions covered in durable Kravet vinyl. Wall-mounted hooks hold the back cushions, upholstered in a floral Duralee fabric, in place.

Entirely Timeless, Wholly Modern

Old-fashioned touches, including a rustic paneled ceiling, a farmhouse sink and glass-front top cabinets, help turn back the clock in the renovated kitchen. Seagrass barstools in natural tones complement the warm tan of the island, which is clad in a matte-finish granite countertop.

Warm in Browns

A niche next to the living room fireplace is converted into a mini library. The shelves, crafted from simple pine, hold the family of book lovers' ever-expanding collection. The leather-and-steel chair is from Savant Vintage, one of Nashville's hottest secondhand shops.

Laid-back Contemporary

“Teaming up black-and-white with wood tones and a multicolor rug makes the dining space in this mid-century house feel homey,” says Shea McGee, a designer in Salt Lake City, Utah. The black chairs help tie together the light fixture (from the designer’s store, McGee & Co.) and the art above the cabinet.

Warmed-Up Metallics

"Golden, earthy shades are pure, warm perfection. They bring that fall coziness year-round," says textile designer Erin Barrett. She snuggle-fied the living room of her home in Charleston, S.C., with a cinnamon-color sofa by Gus Modern, a gold-toned side table from Target and a bronze-finished fireplace screen from Kirkland's. "The minute I saw the vintage-y gilded handprint at a local store, I had to have it!" she says. "Pieces that make you happy are also key for cozy."

All That Glitters

Lavish gold accents throughout this kitchen add shimmer to the marble backsplash and counters and gives the cabinet hardware, Thomas O’Brien pendants, Williams-Sonoma island and La Cornue stove a rich gleam.

Always With the Glam

The formula for a dramatic room: paint the walls a super-dark color — like gunmetal gray — then incorporate white for contrast. To up the ante, throw in as much gold as you dare. A full-on gold dresser-turned-nightstand adds metallic glam to the preppy white canopy bed, while other touches of Midas, from the chandelier to bookshelf and mirror, pull the eye throughout the room.

Decorate With Surprises

The open gold base of this entry table acts as a double frame for the artwork hung underneath. There's no rule that says art should always be at eye level. Position a piece a foot or two off the floor. It's not only unexpected, but you'll also be able to enjoy the picture while seated.

Grand Entrance

With its impressive blue vintage Chesterfield sofas, orchid rug from One Kings Lane and metallic gold wallpaper from Ferm Living, the extra-wide entry — which doubles as a living area — sets the tone for the rest of the home.

Dreaming in Gold

The Tempaper wallpaper (Peonies in Gold Leaf) is like a giant removable decal — it can easily be peeled off, perfect for rental living. Picking up the gold from the wallpaper, the small metal shelf, a $10 flea market find, is spray-painted and mounted on the wall. A floral pillow and clip-on lamp complete the bedroom retreat.

Designed for Snuggles

"A mix of materials that inspires cuddling — like faux-fur, velvet and linen pillows — makes for a supremely cozy bed," says designer Amy Kartheiser. "Without textured elements, a room can feel cold and sterile." Luxe gray grass cloth wallpaper and a chestnut brown woven headboard are paired with the polished brass lamp and arched mirror.

Statement Making

When you stumble across a 1970s-tiered Lucite chandelier, you make sure you use it in just the right place. This stop-you-in-your-tracks entry is that spot. An abstract painting from Texas artist Jerry Cabrera is display nearby. White-on-white zebra-esque wallpaper (Folded by Flat Vernacular) is more interesting than plain white paint, and the super-sleek table doesn't distract from the bold pieces around it.

Reflected Gilt

This gilded mirror from Gypsies Antiques in Austin probably wasn’t intended for a bathroom, but flanked by brass sconces from Circa Lighting, it looks made for the space. A pedestal sink and a slim cabinet topped with Carrara marble make the most of the small space, while hexagonal Carrara marble tiles bring luxury underfoot.

Little Luxuries

Brilliant white sofas covered in bright pillows pair perfectly with the gutsy Ikat-patterned armchairs. Brass detailing on the coffee table and the gilded light fixture jazz up the living room with warm metallics.
