A palette of cool neutrals creates unruffled harmony in this transitional living room. Floor-to-ceiling curtains add height to the space, while a boxy sectional utilizes the corner of the room to its full potential. The glass and chrome coffee table adds a subtle gleam to the mix along with the metallic end table.
The space that was once a small bedroom made a perfect home office nook. Some much-needed storage cabinets and a stairway to the home's lower level were also built into the area, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, Too.
As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, Hilary's design for this kitchen opens up the space and makes it feel larger than the original floor plan. She adds storage to this space by using a kitchen island in the middle of the room. The neutral colors on the cabinets and windows are accented by a pop of color on the far wall. That color also helps to separate the eat-in area from the main part of the kitchen.
Texture and pattern give this living room big personality – from the stacked stone fireplace to the graphic arm chair and area rug. Warm wood window trim and a heavy wood mantel lends a craftsman touch to the eclectic furnishings and accents.
This newly renovated living room featured an old non-functioning fireplace has been replace with a large wall organizer and an electric fire screen. Updated wall colors, a modern couch with ottoman, and new lighting create a new living space. The wall dividing the living room and the hallway has been partially opened, as well as the archway between the living and dining rooms, creating a more open flow to the first floor.
BASEMENT, AFTER: Designer Hilary Farr utilized every inch of space in this tight basement to turn it into a home office and spare bedroom, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It. Up to three people can sleep comfortably in the space as the desk can be raised to reveal a stowaway bed hidden in the wall, and the couch transforms into bunk beds with ease.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the new living room, located just off the front door entrance, occupies the old kids room and front parlour. The walls of the old parlour and living room have been removed to create an open concept floor plan on the first floor. The fireplace was painted white, a brick vineer was added, and a new mantle was installed. The stairway wall was widened slightly. New overhead lighting, window treatments, and personal effects of the home owners give the room a modern but eccletic look.
