In the third and final bedroom, another set of bunk beds and a third built-in floor bed provide additional sleeping arrangements for the home. Cubbies behind each of the beds help keep the space organized without sacrificing more floor space.
Beach-blue walls add a pop in the foyer of HGTV Smart Home 2013, where texture is layered effectively and design elements run the gamut from casual-chic to the refined elegance of Hollywood regency. Stair risers clad with Talavera tiles and a driftwood-framed mirror add interest to the space.
Featuring a cheerful all-over blue color with yellow accents, this modern hallway provides the perfect welcoming spot. A yellow striped bench with storage cubbies and a mirror can be easily hidden by similarly colored drapes that hang from either side of the nook.
This family wanted a space where their three boys could clean up and store their gear after a hard day’s play. Handy cubbies along this wall are equipped hanging hooks and surrounded with shelves and drawers above and below. A brick floor is decorative and low maintenance.
A huge shelving unit spans the length of the wall, with different cubbies to keep books and toys organized. Bright orange and blue pods are built into the design, too, so that the kiddos can read in comfort.
This playhouse structure is clad inside and out with rough-sawn spruce boards, which are naturally weather resistant, making it good for the family and the environment. Storage cubbies offer easy access spaces for toys and games, while a chalkboard wall encourages drawing and writing. A blue racer rocker, made of recycled milk bottles, offers fun yet durable seating. A ladder leads to the second floor loft area where twin skylights provide daylighting and the ability to follow the evening stars with the telescope.
