A neutral color palette gets an infusion of refreshing energy with blue accents in the table lamps, artwork, throw and accent pillows. In a clever design move, the twin lamps serve as a visual frame for the painting behind the sofa.
The black-and-white wallpaper's graphic print sketched out in slender lines adds immediate punch to this boy's bedroom. It also serves as a surprising muted backdrop for colorful accents like the turquoise table lamp.
A beautiful ceramic lamp tops the funky nightstand in this transitional bedroom, bringing a splash of color to the space. A tie-dyed throw pillows complements the lamp while adding a touch of bohemian flair to the design.
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
