Don’t blow the budget on furniture such as a chest, console or end table of your dreams. Instead, style an existing piece of furniture with objects and lighting that have an interesting shape and texture and take cues from the style of the room.

“I’m an art lover and an artist at heart,” Gladys says about her extensive use of art in her design aesthetic.

For years, Sonal collected whimsical art she liked, with no plan for where it would all go. The kids’ playroom was a natural fit. All the games stacked inside the metal World Market console with a peek-a-boo front rev up the fun.
