Light and airy, measuring just 250 square feet, a tiny guesthouse copies a staple of Scandinavian style. Bright white shiplap creates the illusion of added space. Cohesive palette, HGTV host Emily Henderson uses a "hero color" throughout every room to pull it all together. In her Los Angeles home, blue with gray and olive accents creates a casual, layered look.
Perfect symmetry. When in doubt, choosing dual accents (coffee tables, lamps, pillows, frames) always makes for a balanced look. Go eclectic, instead of a classic wooden coffee table, choose a colorful one, like this teal option which is meant to mirror the couch.
Decorate in layers. Beautifully designed living rooms place noteworthy objects at every level. Mentally divide your space into low, mid, and high areas, and position elements to encourage the eye to travel up, down, and around. Here, a faux animal skin covering a woven area rug provides underfoot allure while a prettily accessorized tray atop a trunk and perky pillows add color at the midground. Use vivid canvases, striking sconce shades, and sculptural standing lamps to keep interest running high.
