Stored Toys Double as Fun Decor in Casual Kids Room
Toy storage is kept easy and casual in this kids' room. Cubbies located at floor level make it easy for kids to put away their own toys when through with them, while higher shelves provide a spot to store things out of reach while allowing them to contribute to the fun style of the room.
Bold wallpaper depicting a nature scene grabs your attention in this eclectic stairway. The black and white stairs coordinate beautifully with the walls, while a dazzling chandelier adds a hint of glamor overhead.
Color makes such a difference: The print of this foyer's floral wallpaper is traditional enough, but in black and white it looks so fresh and exciting. The black front door continues the color scheme to the exterior.
This home was formerly a two family dwelling and was converted to a single family residence consisting of a kitchen and dining room on the first floor. The second floor hosts the foyer, formal living room and den, while the third floor contains three bedrooms and bathrooms for the family. Black and white staircases connect all three levels.
In the hallway, Ginger filled woven baskets and wood crates with found objects like pine cones, wooden beads and black packages to connect the design in this space to that in her living room. Then, she hung a Chrstmas banner and set out a Christmas pillow to complete the vision.
The swirling staircase in this four-story New Zealand home doesn't simply spiral – it forms the shape of a heart. White walls with black trim heighten the drama of the unique space, which overlooks an intricately patterned inlaid floor.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn turns a narrow hallway into a dramatic space with the use of black paint, a checkerboard floor and large black-and-white tree prints. A lone red chair makes a bright splash of color.
The exercise room also includes a digital incline trainer treadmill for a good cardio workout, with a screen for surfing the web, watching TV, or working out anywhere in the world (like running on the beach in Malibu).
Open and Bright Entryway is Classic Black and White
The two-story entryway makes a dramatic statement with bright white walls, cool gray marble flooring and contrasting black staircase. Artwork is used throughout the home and an abstract sculpture adds a contemporary note to the space.
With a variety of artwork to brighten the white walls, this modern landing invites guests to stop and reflect on the images. A bold print depicting red stockings, pink pumps and green paint is particularly eye-catching. Its black background and white frame complement the stairwell's palette, resulting in a seamless transition from one level to the next.
Gray walls with cool white trim give way to a wallpapered hallway in the midcentury modern apartment. On either side of the door frame, Asian-inspired artwork sets the stage for the black and white wall covering.
