Instead of the time-consuming chore of stringing endless Christmas lights, save yourself some time and just line your porch stairs (or the porch itself) with luminaries (battery-powered candles are safest) and pretty glass or plexi vessels filled with ornaments. When Christmas is over, remove the ornaments but keep the winter-themed deer luminaries.

Lots of natural light comes into the room through the large window to the right, while the reflective chandelier hanging from the ceiling helps to make the room even brighter.

The yellow accents bring to mind rays of sun, while the light walls and white furniture and carpet help give the space a clean look.
The homeowners wanted their daughters' room to be bright and funky, just like them, so designers created a space that is youthful and fun, but that still blends with the design of the home as a whole.
