Navy gingham bedding and green-lined pillows contrast against the bright yellow bed in this eclectic tween bedroom. The tween is a fan of Katniss from the Hunger Games, so wallpaper with an arrow motif was chosen as a subtle design hint. Contemporary black sconces pop off the wall and provide much-needed task lighting.

Interior designer Susan Diana Harris, Allied ASID, is crazy about color, and she used it to great effect around this fireplace. The brick surround was painted Benjamin Moore’s Douglas Fir to complement the room’s Spring Moss walls, and gorgeous paintings by artist Erin E Sorensen depict the homeowners' view of the nearby San Francisco Bay.

When decorator Nick Olsen moved into his 525-square-foot studio in New York City, the walls were painted white, in keeping with small-space convention. "But the place just looked gray and dingy," says Olsen. And so, rather than just slapping on a newer, brighter coat of white, he painted the apartment's main room Oregano Green (Benjamin Moore 2147-10), in an oil-based metal enamel, to resemble lacquer.
"Although the apartment is small," says Olsen, "it's actually rather grand with 12-foot ceilings, huge windows and a high-relief fireplace. So I felt it would be a shame to tone it down with a pale color or white." For even more impact, he painted the doors glossy black and the trim white, and added a deep teal velvet sofa. Olsen didn't shy away from bright color in the 35- (yes, 35!) square-foot kitchen either, wallpapering the fridge in a bright spring pattern and painting the walls and the ceiling Sea Mist Green (Benjamin Moore #2041-50). "To make color work in a really tiny room like this kitchen," Olsen suggests, "paint the walls and ceilings the same color so you're eye doesn't stop at the ceiling line."
When Gram graduated to a big-boy bed, Sara gave him a double partly because she didn't want to deal with bed rails. "He has so much space that he never rolls to the edge!" she explains. What's with the birch forest in the room? It's wallpaper, inspired by the woodsy view out the window. Young and fun but not babyish. Birch Tree wall mural from Urban Outfitters
