Eclectic can be oh-so-wrong, but it can also be oh-so-right (i.e. this living room).
Leather Sofa, Living Room
Eclectic can be oh-so-wrong, but it can also be oh-so-right (i.e. this living room). Mixed materials -- a woven chair and aged leather sofa, along with the hide pouf and gold coffee table -- and cheeky accessories (that ceramic horse head!) present a daring, fun design that's amplified by persimmon reds and navy blues.

Brodie's room...Fresh Face Think of neutrals as chic rather than bland. Colors that are classified as neutrals often have hints of other hues. These whispers of blue or yellow add dimension and spark to the neutrals they color. This dining room's storm-cloud gray walls have a subtle blue undertone, and the color creates a dynamic background to white trim and furnishings. Contrasting textures, shapes, and finishes keep the room fresh.

Basement?... Grouping several garden stools as a coffee table is a great small space solution! You can easily move them around for parties and create more space in the center of the room when you need it. Love it!
Flexible Furniture..Problem: Shoebox living room that sees a lot of entertaining. Solution: Utilize flexible furniture that can be easily tucked away or moved. Garden stools can be grouped in the middle of the room to create a coffee table effect but can almost effortlessly be moved next to a sofa so guests have a place to perch their drinks within reach. Being able to relocate furniture in the center of a room also provides more walking space for droves of guests.
Outdoor garden stools used as tables and ad hoc seating as needed.
Flexible Furniture: 3 small ceramic garden stools for coffee table, but easily moved for seating or end tables.

Graphic Elegance - Retro motifs meet classic design in this unique master bedroom. An elegant chandelier and vintage-style furnishings are sharply contrasted by a bold geometric-print headboard and retro-inspired floral draperies. What we love: This bedroom is clothed in a mostly blue color palette, and a monochromatic color scheme signifies simplicity. But in this space, just a few applications of yellow, on the draperies and headboard, make a statement without disrupting the room's cool vibe.

My dream house will have a very functional work island like in this kitchen. I love the contrasting color of the island, the wood countertop, and the column-like corners. The metal stools add just the right amount of flair to this traditional kitchen. I find at my home I spend the majority of my time in the kitchen and this island would make my kitchen work easier while giving me a nice place for my husband and I to have our meals. Another great BHG Idea!

This powder-blue living room is from Better Homes & Gardens. Here's how they describe it: "Colors don't need to be bright or bold to make a big impact in a space. In this room, powder blue walls and a white fireplace make a pleasant pair. Identical straight-back chairs and ottomans pull color from the walls, while decorative rosy pink pillows add a touch of warmth. For a little shine, choose a bejeweled chandelier to complete an elegant look."

Small spaces are quickly overwhelmed by large or overstuffed furnishings. Choose neatly upholstered pieces with compact frames and slimmed-down, leggy pieces without skirted bottoms that allow you to see through them to the walls and floors. In this living room, a pair of low-profile chairs eliminates heavy arms that take up visual space and interrupt movement through the conversation area. The open area under the lightweight side table gives the illusion of space. And petite upholstered stools

Make a room light and inviting by using soft blue walls with creamy white details and orange accents. The colors work well together and create an airy feel for a living room. Using multiples of items, such as the two chairs, and symmetry will give the room a sense of classic balance.

Small-Space Scale Scale -- the visual size of objects in relation to one another -- is key to a successful small room. But don't think everything has to be small-scale. Avoid oversize furniture, which can eat up floor space. Include a mix of small to medium-scale furniture pieces. And remember that scale is relative, so what looks like a small sofa on the showroom floor may be just the right size for your small living room. Always take room measurements when buying furniture. Double Up Tap into wasted space for storage in a small space. Drawers built in beneath this daybed corral files, extra linens, and more. Are built-ins out of your budget? Invest in a bed skirt and shallow plastic bins that can slide under your bed. The skirt conceals the affordable, but not always pretty, bins and the space beneath your bed now houses more than just dust bunnies. Small Bedroom Storage See three smart ways to add more storage to a small bedroom. Small-Space Zoning Some rooms may not be small, but they are called upon to perform multiple functions, such as dining and relaxing. Use rugs to delineate a great room and to be a visual cue as to where one function stops and the other begins. Make Your Own Room Similarly, use physical barriers to designate spaces. The front door of this home opens directly into the living room, but a folding screen creates a functional foyer. Your Home, Your Rules Make your small spaces work for you. If an awkward nook off your kitchen isn't big enough to be a dining space, turn it into a cozy reading corner with a small armchair and side table. Have a closet in an odd location that isn't sized for any significant storage? Turn it into a home office or bar. Use Windows to Enlarge a Small Room Windows can be a strong tool in visually enlarging a small room because your eye moves beyond the wall to the outdoor view and embraces it as part of your living space. Take advantage of this liberating effect by leaving windows bare, or dress windows with draperies that match the color of the walls to eliminate boundaries and open the space. For privacy, install simple shades or blinds that can be pulled out of the way during the day. Learn our best secrets for decorating small spaces. Design Small Rooms to Multitask If your house is too small to meet all your needs, gear spaces for double duty. A daybed anchors this living room by mimicking the look of a trendy, extra-deep designer sofa -- and scores space for guests to sleep. Look for a daybed with a solid back for all-day lounging support. Cap off the ends with a pair of bolster pillows to imitate the rolled arms of a sofa. Two small tables work together as a larger coffee table but move aside easily to give guests more space. Learn how to maximize storage in small spaces. Choose Small-Scale Furnishings Small spaces are quickly overwhelmed by large or overstuffed furnishings. Choose neatly upholstered pieces with compact frames and slimmed-down, leggy pieces without skirted bottoms that allow you to see through them to the walls and floors. Learn more about choosing furniture for small spaces. Keep a Small Room White and Light It's an age-old decorating adage: light colors open up a room, while dark colors keep a space cozy. To give your room the illusion of spaciousness, bathe it in white. White surfaces bounce light around the room, keeping a small space feeling bright and open. In this narrow bathroom, white walls, a white bathtub, and an off-white vanity reflect light, giving the feeling of spaciousness. Dark tile floors ground the room. White grout lines break up the tile, ensuring the black tile doesn't weigh down the room. Top tips for small bathroom storage. Let Colored Walls Expand a Small Room Rather than using white walls as a backdrop for colorful accents, try the opposite effect. The green wall color here connects the room to the scenery and spaciousness outside, while white furnishings, white accessories, and white-painted architecture keep the room open and bright. A handful of green accents ties it all together. Learn more tricks for decorating a small living room. Make Small Rooms Feel Taller Increase the apparent height of the room with vertical lines that lead the eye from floor to ceiling. A ceiling-skimming étagère draws the eye upward, making this living room feel more voluminous. For a similar effect, hang a collection of artwork on a wall that is arranged toward the ceiling. Add crown molding around the perimeter of a room, or add architectural molding on the ceiling and an intricate medallion around a light fixture to enhance the details overhead. Add Mirrors to Small Spaces Hang a large mirror with a decorative frame (or prop it against a wall) to create the illusion of depth in a small room. Even small mirrors expand the sense of space by reflecting views and light, but an oversize mirror like this one has a dramatic effect because it reflects a large chunk of the room. Get quotes for home improvement projects from local pros. Use Fewer Colors in a Small Room When it comes to small spaces, too many colors can be chaotic. Select a few and stick with them. In this living room, a cream background is accented with sky blue and rusty red. The colors add personality without overtaking the space, and the muted tones are far more subtle than fully pigmented hues, which also softens their impact. Get tips for living in small spaces. Limit Pattern in a Small Room When decorating a small room, let texture and color guide your fabric choices. Introducing too many patterns in tight quarters will create confusion. In this bedroom, a little bit of pattern on the bedding goes a long way. The patterns are subtle and small in scale, yet pop against the monochromatic blue palette. Learn more about decorating strategies for small bedrooms. Learn how to choose furniture for small bedrooms. Float Furniture in a Small Room Create a sense of movement and make a room feel larger by floating big furnishings away from walls. Allowing elbow room between the wall and seating pieces gives the impression of depth and space. In this open floor plan, the living room "floats" in the middle of the space, creating a distinct living area within the combination kitchen, living, and dining room. Learn the tricks to choosing a sofa for a small room. Downplay Contrast in a Small Space Architectural focal points can make a small space feel choppy by causing the eye to stop and focus in on that area. By painting the brick fireplace white in this compact sitting area, the fireplace stopped distracting from the room and now the wall nearly disappears into the neighboring bank of windows. The cohesive color of the wall and architectural focal point blends with the primarily white furniture to make the area feel open and spacious. Let Small Rooms Breathe Accessories make every room personable, but filling a small room to the brim will steal space visually. A handful of well-chosen and well-placed accessories is all it takes to give a small living room a layer of sophistication. To avoid a cluttered look, take advantage of natural display spots, such as the coffee table, end tables, and the fireplace, accenting them with a handful of thoughtful items. If you spread accessories throughout the room, keep the walls simple and quiet to focus attention on the objects. Likewise, if you want the eye to focus on the shapes and textures of accessories, keep their colors neutral or monochromatic. Make Space in a Small Hallway A little something in the entry creates a welcoming focal point for guests, but when you're squeezed for space, keep it lightweight visually. Try a narrow console table. This provides a surface for some flowers and a place to deposit mail, keys, and a handbag when walking in the door. It also anchors the mirror and wall sconces, creating a well-balanced display that doesn't eat up too much space. Keep a Small Room Flexible Keep a small room from getting extremely cramped when you entertain by outfitting it with smaller, portable pieces of furniture that can be rearranged. Here, a lightweight table with fold-down leaves can be expanded to accompany extra guests and can easily be folded up and scooted against the wall to be used as a console table.
