This silver chair adds a bold element to the fresh, bright design of this bedroom. Natural light from the windows highlights the metallic color of the chair and the metal finish of the bed frame. A unique rope based floor lamp over a striped blue and white bring brings a nautical, coastal vibe to the room. The stool adds an extra touch of color and easy storage.
Make It: Choose approximately five different fabrics with similar colors, coordinated patterns and textures. Cut each into 12-inch strips, and then tie side by side to a strand of rope or banding. Attach along the sides of the chair by creating double or triple knots.
Kids of all ages would delight in this amazing pool that mixes fire and water features, a rope swing, water slide, waterfall, and plenty of places to relax.

This modern white cottage great room has white upholstered sofas in the living area, white dining room table and modern rope dining chairs in the dining area, traditional pendant lights, and vaulted ceilings.
Make It: Pick up firewood from a local vendor, then cut the logs into round or ovular placards. Once cut to size, use acrylic or latex paint and a detail brush to add names or holiday messages. For a more 3-D look, consider using wood or metal letters attached with wood glue. In keeping with the rustic motif, choose rope, twine or burlap ribbon to attach the bark to the chair, keeping it held in place with fabric weights stitched along the front edges.

A blue-tone shag area rug creates a soft base for the cool, contemporary style of this living design. The archways are painted with a navy accent color bringing depth to the bright room. A rope bucket chair paired with the leather sofa creates a pleasing and trendy merge of style.
Take a corner of your patio and put it to use as an entertaining space. A bar is built in under the kitchen window in this outdoor space with a fire pit by DesignFix, a California interior design company.
