Pillows are an inexpensive way to refresh your space, but designer Janna Allbritton offers her top tip to avoid wasting money. Choose the color scheme before you hit the mesmerizing pillow aisle at a store or buy fabric to make pillows.
It's all about the wood in this masculine Craftsman-inspired home office with a paneled wood ceiling, hardwood floors, crown molding with recessed lighting and custom built-in cabinets and bookshelves. Wall sconces with tiny shades, a large wood desk and Craftsman-style windows with stained glass accents completes the room.
Imagine curling up on this inviting navy-blue nailhead-trim sofa or in one of the red-striped club chairs and watching the light from the stained-glass window play on the red walls of this comfy living room.
With a neutral base and a few accent colors, you can create a color-coordinated shelf that looks intentional while still embodying your style. In this space, Cruickshank Remodeling in Georgia trailed splashes of red throughout the shelf decor — in a bowl, necklace, figurine and in groupings of books — to give the whole installment a brighter look.
Even though this living space has a vaulted ceiling, it remains warm and cozy. Green-hued striped chairs, sofa and ottoman, white built-in cabinets and a white tile fireplace with olive green molding create a comfortable seating area.
One of the big selling points of the remodeled home was the built-in storage. In this home, however, instead of storing towels and bed linens these built-ins are a design element, showcasing even more of Mikel’s impressive collection of cultural objects.
When a closet has this much built-in storage space, it makes sense to have a chair in there, too, so you can sit down and take it all in. A wall of built-ins provides storage for all your clothing and accessory needs.
