Traditional library colors and materials -- such as the wood built-in shelves and the brown leather sofa -- are placed in this space that is anything but traditional. A funky, southwest-inspired rug brings red, blue and green hues into the room, and a beautiful painting echoes those colors. Accents placed on the shelves add a personal touch to the library, which also features simple but intriguing small tables plus an additional chair for reading or lounging.
A wood-framed living room armchair is paired with a small, round metal side table to create a cozy spot to relax. A throw is ready for chilly nights and a vase of yellow flowers adds a punch of color to the neutral space.
Neutral walls and textiles create a comfy feeling in this transitional kids bedroom. A blue and green geometric print area rug works great with the white patterned curtains on the flanking windows near the bed. A large rustic wooden shelf displays toys and books beside a small armchair in the corner.
This small den, located off the entryway, is the perfect place to read a good book or relax the afternoon away. Two upholstered armchairs, pillows in shades of cream and light blue and soft, floral drapery work well with the dark wood floors.
After the renovation, the master bedroom in Dennis Gupta and Marie Amato's home in Valhalla, New York, has a spa-like feeling with gray/green walls, a richly-textured area rug, a sitting chair and small workspace. The light colors keep the room feeling more spacious.
A gold fireplace trim pops against the sleek marble fireplace surround. A braided coffee table adds a textural element to the smooth finishes in the room. A white arm chair with skirt is decorated with a small palm tree throw pillow giving it a taste of tropical influence.
This white, modern table is perfect for a small dining set up or breakfast space. The polished finish is a contrast to the faded pattern look of the area rug below. Upholstered hexagon stools compliment the colors in the rug.
This bold foyer features vibrant blue walls paired with a red and yellow Navajo print area rug, creating the perfect Southwestern vibe for this historic adobe home. Exposed beam ceilings and a small woven armchair finish off the look of the space.
Bright and spacious, this contemporary hallway becomes almost another mini room of the house, wide enough to create a small seating area. Beautiful gray slate stones make up the floor and stairs, and a cool industrial chandelier adds extra light.
So what if your bedroom's on the smaller side? Go big with your headboard and bold with your pattern choices and wall paint and create a merry, eclectic space. Extra bonus with this room? The charming adjacent patio.
