A kids' climbing wall and a bedroom bedecked with frolicking foxes blend to create a vibrant, whimsical home for a family with young kids. The house also features an indoor swing and a children's teepee. White walls throughout the house turn each pop of color into a fun focal point.
Eclectic Bedroom With Suitcase Nightstand and Hide Rug
In the bedroom of a beach house on the Indian Ocean, designer Nelly Reffret took a creative approach to the project’s extremely tight budget. She says: “I searched for bargains and only selected items that I knew would work perfectly in the space. The headboard is a discontinued Ikea style, which I painted in a sandy color. I found the suitcases on the curb during trash collection (you know that saying about someone's trash being someone's treasure...).” When combining a variety of furniture styles, she advises allowing size and scale to guide your choices. “Before starting to decide on a look, it's important to check what will fit in the space: width and depth matter. Scale is another important factor. Too many large pieces and the room will look cluttered; too many small pieces, and there will be no sense of cohesion, no sense of ‘grounding’. Having one item of large scale next to smaller items can create an interesting focal point to the room, just like the headboard does in this bedroom.”
Dream Playroom Features Teepee, Rope Swings and Floor Cushions
Chango and Co. created every child's dream play space in this expansive playroom. Floor mattresses line one wall and are topped with playful throw pillows for crashing, a teepee provides a place for dreaming, and rope swings hang from the ceiling for extra fun. A bold Swiss cross pattern livens up the walls, and black trim highlights the architectural features of the room.
A series of floating shelves in different widths and lengths surround the flatscreen tv in this living room, turning the wall into a flexible display space. The dark blue rug helps ground the otherwise light-colored room and echoes the water view.
Eclectic Sitting Area With Antique Distressed Cabinet
A green, distressed antique cabinet adds character, texture and color to this all-white sitting area. A fern and snake plant make the space feel homey and inviting and bring in a natural element for an eclectic vibe.
Bright, Eclectic Living Room With Blue Shag Rug, Vibrant Red Armchairs and Wood Decorative Details
White walls and open arch doorways create a spacious and airy feel in this living room. Bright red armchairs and a blue shag rug add bold touches of color to the room. A contemporary neutral sofa creates a perimeter for the room and seating to watch the mounted TV on a natural wood accent wall. Floating shelves, an Asian coffee table and a wood mantle board add wood accents throughout the room.
Adding style underfoot is layered area rugs, a combination of natural fiber jute and cowhide. Built-in bookshelves provide storage, while exposed wood beams bring a rustic vibe to the space. A pair of gray chairs makes for an intimate seating area.
Elegant gold pulls act as pieces of jewelry on the sage green kitchen cabinets, which are topped with clean white countertops. Globe pendants add a vintage note to the space, and the peninsula not only provides another dining spot but helps divide the kitchen from the living room.
A sturdy antique iron machine base contrasts with the bright, airy vibe in this bathroom for an unexpected, unique look. The round silver mirror and white vessel sink modernize classic elements like beadboard walls and a marble vanity countertop.
