The print on the wall with a too-cute vintage VW van reminded the homeowners of a trip they took to Hawaii. Colorful stars and stripes for the bedding are cheery and whimsical. Paint color: Sherwin Williams Aloof Gray; Oeuf crib.
The sleeper sofa has come a long way in the last few years. Many new sofas and sectionals feature a high-quality mattress so the sleep experience is better than ever. Make the bed with high quality linens- freshly laundered sheets, a fluffy comforter or duvet and LOTS of blankets go a long way to making guests feel like they’re in a 4-star hotel room. Throw in a few extra pillows, too- so they can prop up to comfortably read or watch TV.
"Smartly, the headboard allows the men's team to orient the bed to the view of the city versus back to the living room as the women and Dan have done," said Vern Yip, judge on HGTV's Design Star. The unique headboard is a shelving structure of open cubbies, perfect for displaying decor. The green striped bed cover adds color to the white shelves, walls and sheets. The shelving unit acts as a room divider, but the see-through element creates a spacious feel.
Colletti designed this open glass container for use on a coffee table. The moss on the left is Irish moss (Sagina subulata), a lush-looking groundcover with a fuzzy texture. The red center plant, Hypoestes, works as a focal point. Colletti loves baby tears (Helxine soleirolii, in the lower right corner of the container). It's growing next to a creeping fig (Ficus pumila) in the lower right corner. Sheet moss was used in the upper right corner. “The plants are the stars,” Colletti says, “so the top dressing is minimal; clean lines accent a home décor display.”
