HGTV Stars Highlight Totally Worthwhile Design Risks

Do you find yourself surfing the channels, just to land on HGTV? Or are you starting a home to-do list for this fall when the weather gets cooler and we are all hunkering down once again?

These shows provide great inspiration, and one of my favorites is “Good Bones.” This mother-daughter team’s style ranges from modern to classic farmhouse, and everything in between. It really all depends on the house they are renovating and its history. Together, they do a great job utilizing the layout of the home to make it as functional and stylish as possible.

For all these reasons, I stopped when I saw’s recent post, highlighting “Good Bones” stars Mina Starsiak and her mother, Karen Laine, and five décor risks they believe are worth taking. These include:

  1. Dark paint on the exterior lends a stylish industrial look
  2. Dark flooring adds a masculine vibe
  3. A bright accent color works well in the bathroom
  4. A mustard velvet bar glams up the space
  5. Butcher block countertops can warm up a kitchen

While some of these ideas may not be a fit for everyone, they are worth considering and maybe even adjusting to your personality. For example, number three, a bright accent color in the bathroom…I love this idea but instead of the red hue they feature, I might go with a bold blue.

There is some great inspiration here. As you consider home projects, this HGTV show and others can definitely provide you with more than enough options to consider!
