Easily Accessible Library in Adventure Themed Nursery
In the nursery, bookshelves are hung low so that they are easily accessible to the homeowners' small children. They display a great collection of colorful books that draws the eye and beckons kids to open their minds to adventure. To top off the space, the word "Book Worm", made of wooden letters covered in pages to an old children's book, makes this area of the nursery a little more fun.
A three-seater sofa and two deep armchairs provide comfortable seating in the multipurpose room, a flexible space that can be used for a variety of activities like watching an awards show, the big game or your favorite HGTV special.

Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
Dark hardwood flooring runs from the kitchen, with a large marble island and seating for six guests, to the blue, transitional living room.
