This chic master bedroom features a pale blue accent wall, an upholstered headboard with nail head trim and cream vintage side table. A well-placed beveled mirror lets in soft light from French doors and creates the illusion of more space.
Give kids a healthy alternative to ice cream by letting them serve themselves fruit inside of waffle cones. For a no mess approach, protect your table surface with a table cloth or runner, then set the waffle cones into plastic ice cream cone stands. Let the kids fill up their cones with their favorite fruits, then enjoy their creations at the table.
In front of a window partially covered by a shade and sage drape, an oversized cream-colored chair and ottoman sit, alongside a small side table with table lamp. Behind the chair, on the room's tan walls, hang three framed pictures of botanical prints.
Enjoy the outdoors while dining inside. Upholstered red and cream chairs surround the traditional-style table, which overlooks the backyard and pool. A custom cabinet houses a TV, as well as formal flatware, plates and placemats for easy access.
The unexpected use of a shipping crate as a side table gives this neutral living room vintage appeal. The cream sofa and blue throw pillows help pull the look together, making this transitional living room feel sophisticated and collected.
The slate gray carpet in this modern living room sets a dramatic stage for the Chicago skyline view. Cream leather sofas anchor the two sides of the room, while the sleek glass and chrome coffee table adds the perfect modern touch in the center.
The large cream colored entertainment center frames a flatscreen TV with mullion cabinets on either side, an open display shelf above, and cabinetry and drawers below. The available storage keeps the room organized and uncluttered. A pair of neutral sofas with ruffled skirt finish face in toward a distressed wood coffee table.
Traditional built-ins are countered with contemporary touches in this eclectic living room. Blue pillows add color against the cream couch. A contemporary wooden coffee table with extending sides sits on the shag rug and matches the brown leather armchairs and dark wood floor. Silver statues add modern detail and decor.
Open to the kitchen, this newly remodeled family room, designed by Debbie Talianki, features upholstered armchairs in shades of cream with patterned pillows that blend with the nautical beach theme. A custom cocktail table and side table were designed for this home and a commissioned painting in pastel colors was hung next to the French doors. A custom Roman shade with remote control, area rug and white entertainment unit with cabinetry and bookshelves complete the room.
Let little ones help finish off your soiree’s tablescape by turning carnations and cherries into floral ice cream sundaes. To do this, have them place pre-cut carnations in two different colors (pink and white work best) into sundae glasses made of plastic or acrylic. Add the pink carnations inside of the glass to serve as the ice cream substitute. Next, layer two or three white carnations in the center and slightly higher than the pink ones so they take on the look of whipped cream. After the kids add cherries to the top of their creations, parents should add water before placing the arrangements on the table.
