Silver and Cold

This modern master bedroom has silver and gray accents and wall color, upholstered headboard, contemporary bedside tables with silver reading lamps, upholstered side chair and bench, and modern gray area rug.

Deep Pink

HGTV fan artelfin created a feminine and posh space by integrating red-violet tones with sterling silver accessories. The white sofa pops against the rich magenta walls and accent pillows. Periwinkle carpet tones down the bold color of the room, while still maintaining that lovely pink-purple hue.

Perfect Pair

An olive green accent wall paired with an aubergine duvet creates a relaxing tone, perfect for a bedroom environment. Seal brown hardwood floors and furnishings deliver wintertime warmth. Design by Andreas Charalambous

Snow White

Say "yes" to white in the winter. Neutral tones come together to create a simple and modern space. Warm elements are introduced with a rust-colored sconce, a creamy shag rug and natural hardwood floors. Design by Ron Nowfel

Rich and Warm

Nothing says warmth more than rich, chocolate brown tones mixed with gray, aubergine and pumpkin orange. Designer Andreas Charalambous added lights behind the wall to illuminate the room with a soft, intimate glow, allowing the orange accent wall to stand out among the deeper elements of the space.

Cozy Colors

Warm shades of eggplant create an intimate, inviting gathering spot within this traditional living room. Soft, gray-toned purple walls allow deeper shades of aubergine, like the lamp base, throw pillow and candles, to make a bold statement. Design by Joseph Pubillones

Golden Glimmer

This elegant neutral living room welcomes winter with holiday flair. Light, metallic gold slipcovers provide formal additions to the space, while allowing the small, yet bold, accessories to take center stage. Natural elements such as the birch branches and bird nests were dusted with gold powder for a Christmas shimmer. Design by Leanne Michael Interiors

Charcoal Heaven

A color palette of charcoal gray and aubergine in the living room carries into the kitchen and other adjacent rooms for a uniform and balanced look. Designer Gregory Augustine says, "the reflective hues of the surrounding city buildings at dusk were inspiration for the color palette."

Eye-Popping Red

Against white walls, this rich, red sofa revamps the color palette of this simple, modern space. With minimal accessories and few accents, designer Andreas Charalambous allows the sofa to take center stage, continuing the bold hue onto the walls with an abstract print in deep red.

An Olive Statement

Designer Kenneth Brown added shimmery olive green window treatments to make a dramatic statement against the pale green walls and white floor. The gold- and beige-toned bedding was given a warm dose of color with an aubergine throw and copper accent pillows.

Elegant Complements

Floor-to-ceiling draperies in warm gold tones deliver a pleasing contrast next to a deep navy accent wall and matching bedding. The combination of dark and light hues prevents the room from feeling small and visually expands the space. Design by Vanessa DeLeon

Golden Dreams

Designer Judith Balis combined various hues of tan and brown with soothing gold and copper accents throughout this modern bedroom retreat. A rich, chocolate brown accent wall complements the shimmery gold duvet and accent pillows for an ultra-relaxing feel.

Soothing Space

A smoky gray paint color allows plenty of design creativity. HGTV fan JeanninePC99 stayed with the silver and gray theme, adding modern, gray-toned accent pillows to a slouchy white sofa. A sleek, black coffee table provides the perfect home for ceramic gray fish statues.

Icy Addition

Icy blue, when paired with white, depicts the perfect winter wonderland. Designer Ron Nowfel uses subtle hints of blue against white walls and cream furniture bringing our favorite natural winter hues indoors.

Deep Retreat

Designer Joseph Pubillones combined shades of aubergine and lilac with russet-colored draperies and deep brown furniture for an ideal color pairing. Crisp, white bedding brightens the space, while still pulling in the room's brown tones with the ribbon trim.

Modern Metallics

A fresh combination of white, black, gray and metallic silver creatively installed this modern masterpiece. Floor-length metallic silver window treatments add a subtle glow next to soft, gray walls and white furnishings. Faux wheat grass planters bring in a deep green hue for an added touch of color to a simple palette. Design by HGTV fan silversun84

Wintry Elegance

Designer Ron Nowfel created an elegant, yet neutral, space with wintry shades of cream, gold and celadon. The gold accents provide a warm touch against the room's naturally soft color palette.

Ocean Inspirations

Designer Joseph Pubillones paired bold, navy walls with neutral accessories, fixtures and flooring to keep the space open and inviting. A beige sofa, white lanterns and rustic wood furnishings stand out in this wintry, yet ocean-inspired room.
