Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Divine Design," uses neutral slipcovers to create cozy, kid-friendly seating in this playful basement. A durable wood coffee table is the perfect spot for playing family board games or creating beautiful artwork. Muted green carpet throughout keeps this space light while still providing camouflage for inevitable spills.
Use feng shui design to improve communication in your home. "Never put all your furniture against the walls," says Karen Rauch Carter, feng shui consultant and author of Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life. "Furniture should be arranged to support communication, so forget where the walls are. Put at least the front legs of all furniture on the rug — not just around it — and people will sit there and talk."
Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Candice Tells All," created this living room that blends style and function. She says, "It's important to know what makes the most sense for your lifestyle and home, so don't choose colors, fabrics or even materials that won't work for your family, children or pets." This living room's rustic wood coffee table, dark upholstered armchair and patterned area rug ensure a family-friendly space.
Designer Candice Olson of Candice Tells All fills this glitzy bathroom with spa-like amenities, including heated flooring, a deep soaking tub and a two-person rain shower head. For a wow factor, Candice hangs faceted chains behind the tub for a bit of sparkle to contrast the antique wood dresser.
This bright and airy master bathroom is a true retreat away from it all. A glass enclosed shower and two floating vanities allow the eye to flow through the space. The wow factor is a curtain of crystal-like beads used to create a waterfall accent wall around the window. Design by Candice Olson.
If cooler fall weather also means hosting weekend guests, swap out lightweight summer bedding for heavier linens in rich fall shades, like pumpkin, russet or gold, as design diva Candice Olsen did here. Changing just a few key pieces is an easy way to refresh a bedroom's look, plus your guests will appreciate bunking in such a well-appointed and cozy room.
