A red, white and blue color theme for this kids bunk room features nautical decor, including the rope ladder to get to the top bunk. White shiplap walls give the space coastal flair, which is a perfect match for the beach bungalow.
Designer Genevieve Gorder has a bone to pick with this room design. "My fear with this room is that the child will love it today but outgrow it tomorrow, and that's a waste," explains Candice. "Quality core pieces like the dressers are great starting points; they'll last forever and transition easily. I would have liked to see the theme established with more attention to the temporary accessories in this room rather than the more permanent construction elements."
The safari-themed decor in this guest room does not overwhelm the space. Framed animal portraits, an ornate dresser and colorful throw pillows with an elephant print work perfectly with the soothing neutral palette.
The same gold and black color scheme continues from Boyd's living room to his dining room and kitchen. Editing is key in Boyd's view. "The best designers are great editors," he notes, "It's not always easy to practice restraint."
Adorable wallpaper from Spoonflower is the highlight of this Carriage House powder room from Vermilion Design Interiors with offices in both Atlanta and Highlands, North Carolina. Designer Bill Cook of Vermilion was inspired by the home's name, Foxtail, and so decided to decorate this bath appropriately. Cook says he "thought that this was the bath of a rather flamboyant and elusive fox who had escaped the hunt and flaunted his friends and family on the walls...swiping a couple of the red wool British hunting jackets and repurposing them as sink and window treatments."
This petite powder room is filled with fun, whimsical elements, from the faux bois treatment on the walls and floors, to the porthole mirror, to the antique dresser-turned-vanity. Nautical-inspired sconces, along with the tight dimensions, work together to give this room the feel of a ship's compartment.
As seen on Vacation Home for Free, Matt Blashaw and his crew gave this living room a bit of a modern design. The neutral, clean lines of the furniture help give the space a clean feeling, while the design incorporates other patterns, such as chevron, into it. The blue accents and nautical artwork brings the space together.
Three kids can sleep comfortably in this bunk room. Boasting a red, white and blue color theme, the space feels fresh and patriotic. The design incorporates a rope ladder to access the top bunk, adding a nautical element to the room.
In the dining room doubles as a work space at the 2014 HGTV Smart Home, the modern styling of classic, upholstered armchairs with nailhead detail bring elegance into the space. A repeated theme of white and red is creatively translated into houndstooth accent pillows.
For continuity and impact, amplify your copper and cobalt color scheme throughout your room, not just on the table. Add affordable copper accessories to your mantel, bookshelves and sidebar to give a feeling of richness.
Work with what you’ve got. The beds in both kids’ rooms received an update by DIY blogger Dena Stormer, giving the room a jolt of playful color and pizzaz. The boy who lives here loves fishing and space, so designer Egypt Sherrod, who pitched in with AmericasMart to redo the children’s rooms in this Dwell with Dignity install, gave the room a blue and green color palette and hung fish artwork over the beds.
The gorgeous dining table was made by butterflying one slab of walnut into three pieces and joining them together. All the surfaces throughout the house are as matte as possible to give the home a timeless, midcentury aesthetic.
This fresh guest bedroom boasts a pair of twin beds positioned in front of an accent wall covered in red and gold patterned wallpaper. A small desk and breakfast table sit atop natural wide plank hardwood floors, while the exposed beam ceiling is painted white.
