Dramatic yet Intimate Black Bedroom

If you think you can't paint a bedroom black or mix black walls with brown furniture, think again. Vern's black bedroom makeover delighted the Halloween-loving homeowners. He brought some light into the space with oversized lamps, lots of candlelight and reflective metal art above the headboard.

Dreamy Nursery Grounded in Sweet Design

Vern's color choices of blues and brown in this little boy's nursery can last for years to come. We especially like the multiple hot-air balloons hung from the ceiling, which add stimulation for the baby and are a fabulously dreamy accessory.

Living Room With Personal Touches

Vern made it his mission to transform the living room of a missionary with 33 years in the field. The focal point is the wall above the sofa, filled with favorite photos than were enlarged, converted to black and white and framed identically.

Chill in the Locker Room Lounge

It's a locker room and so much more! Vern converted this firehouse area into a hip, comfortable lounge with space devoted to relaxing with fellow firefighters.

Serve Up a Taste of Asia

n this welcoming space, a classic George Nelson light fixture hangs above a table that is ready for a dinner party. The brown wall color is both soothing and dramatic. Open the wine; dinner is served!

Pimped Out Playroom

Vern transformed this garage into a playroom, a storage area and, when needed, a parking space. The tempered-glass cabinet doors are covered with posters and give the entire space a fun, action-packed feel.

Fireplace Focal Point

Vern knows how to highlight a fireplace. A multi-paneled mirror is place on the mantel to elogante the fireplace and make the room appear larger. The candle-style chandelier not only illuminates the space, but it also functions as a piece of artwork.
