Pops of chartreuse add visual interest and keep this bedroom feeling bright and fun. Black and white photography decorates the walls without interfering with the calm vibe of the design. Two-toned curtains perfectly tie in the bright throw pillows.

Only 36 inches in height from floor to ceiling, this small bedroom has the illusion of being larger thanks to the graphic design of the retro-inspired crochet quilt. A brown curtain slides over to hide the staircase and built-in storage shelves.

Designer Annie Lowengart created a modern homage to her sister's orange and pink childhood room in "Smoll's Room Redux" at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The punchy, graphic wallpaper on the ceiling by Flavor Paper is tempered by the more traditional stylings of the headboards and armchair chair from Chairish.
A designer's work is never actually done. For most designers there is always a little something extra that could be done to take our designs to the next level. However, the only thing I could find to do in the Blehm's master sitting area was to adjust the lampshade because the room and its views were flawlessly picturesque. In this space, Angela used one of my favorite hospitality-inspired design tricks. She concealed the drapery hardware behind the crown moulding, thereby creating a clean and elevated look. The moulding becomes the cornice and the pleated linen drapery opens to expose the outdoors like a movie screen. How's that for drama?! My number one pick in this image is the upholstered bench. It manages to be retro, mod, and current all at the same time. Angela's is fearless in her use of white furniture and rugs throughout the family home. She's proof that it can be done, not to mention, done with her three young children and pets!
