This bright and open guest bedroom features an eclectic mix of furnishings and fabrics with a decidedly global vibe. An exposed brick column brings an element of earthiness to the space that's extended by the rough-hewn beam that serves as a display shelf near the ceiling. Across the room, closet doors feature a blown-up photo the homeowners brought back from Bangkok.
Formerly a stark home office, this sunny living room now houses a light and airy array of neutral furnishings and accessories. A wall of built-in shelving once held office supplies, but now offers space to display photos, collected pieces and topiaries in the traditional space. Stationary panels at the French doors finish the room and tie together its taupe and white color scheme.
Use removable adhesive photo strips rated for 5 to 15 pound items to ensure the artwork will stay put on a gallery wall without using nails. Be sure to allow the strips to cure according to package directions before hanging artwork. The mix of pattern and color in the displayed art adds vibrancy perfectly suited to a lively dorm room design. Mixing framed pieces with unframed pieces adds shape and dimension.

The table is crowned by a unique statement piece: a colorful modern painting. Placing identical lamps on the cabinet on either side of the painting keeps the arrangement feeling orderly and uncluttered.
