Here's a tropically inspired living area where plants bring the outside indoors and lighten and liven up the dark woods and neutral tones in the space. Multiple materials -- heavy stone, marble, wallpaper and wood -- team up to create a nuanced room. Plantation shades allow rooms to be separate or together.
Deep-hued wood plantation shades surround this lovely master bedroom designed by Susan Brunstrum for her client's second home in Park, City Utah. The soft hues of blue and gray add a restful quality to the room and allow the stone fireplace to take center stage.
A window seat doubles as a cozy spot to read and a place to store toys thanks to removable storage bins below. White plantation shutters and a menswear-patterned, pinstripe Roman shade keep the kid-friendly nook sophisticated and stylish.
