Glee creator Ian Brennan's living room was redesigned by HGTV Design Star winner Emily Henderson, as seen on HGTV's Secrets From A Stylist. For the bungalow's decorative makeover, Emily deliberately combined three distinct design styles to reflect Ian's personality. Starting with a '30s masculine look that she's calling "FDR Chic," she then layers two more styles: a fun '60s element called "British Invasion Mod," and furnishings from Ian's travels called "Backpacker Traveler."
A metallic trunk serving as a coffee table is the focal point in this modern living room. A streamlined sofa keeps with the clean, modern feel of the space, while a striped black and white rug adds a punch of graphic interest.
As seen on HGTV's Secrets From a Stylist, a more refined wood table and blue upholstered captain's chair tone down the '50s vibe from host Emily Henderson's first makeover of this space. The room still features plenty of kitsch with DIY chandeliers made out of socket splitters and a fun centerpiece of salvaged architectural and design elements. Instead of buying one huge, expensive area rug, Emily saved money by buying three smaller area rugs and laying them next to each other.
Yes you want the house to sell itself but often times what attracts the buyer is what they see such as special additions that make the space particularly unique. This one of a kind bookshelf with wood ladder is an example of added character that attracts buyers.
Wood furnishings and floor serve as a grounded neutral backdrop for colorful accents in this midcentury modern living room. Particularly bright and eye-catching are the yellow floor lamp and red crocheted pouf.
This trendy gray living room features mid-century modern furnishings with a touch of rustic displayed in the coffee table. A custom cabinet painted with white chalkboard paint cleverly hides the TV and includes children's artwork.
A handmade Kilim area rug is the crowning jewel of this dining room's design, adding warmth and color to the space. Simple linen curtains are hung high above the windows to add height to the space, and the dining room chairs are upholstered in an orange floral fabric. Midcentury modern black chairs flank the ends of the table.
