Want to instantly add brightness to a room? Painting your walls and built-ins white is a sure-fire way, and instantly makes any colorful accessories in the room pop. With a white backdrop, you don't need to go for intense colors. On trend metallics and pastels are a great way to add interest.
The master bedroom walls have a faint blue-green color, similar to sea glass, that provides a soothing backdrop for the black and white accents used throughout the space. On the white bed, a pair of green decorative pillows with a geometric pattern pick up the wall color.
This cozy bedroom features layers of textures and pattern all set against a striking black feature wall. The rustic, wooden bed frame stands out against the colorful and varied patterns of the throw pillow. To the right of the bed, a large ampersand, a symbol of connection that was widely featured in Tanika and Brian’s wedding sits by the window. Its weathered metal is a perfect echo of the weathered wood of the headboard - once a room divider that Tanika repurposed for the room.
Four solar powered skylights with energy-efficient glass transform the master bedroom’s ceiling into a fifth wall with fresh air, natural light and sky views. The skylights include a built-in rain sensor that automatically close the skylights if it begins to rain.
Downstairs, the family room is a space for relaxation. A gallery wall curated around the television turns the focal point of the room into a work of art. At the top of the wall, a photo of Tze’s grandmother brings a note of family and history to the space.
A mix of photos of Liz Eicholz's own wedding along with family photos of her and her husband's parents' weddings are given a consistent look when housed in black frames with generous white mattes and printed in black and white in the couple's family room.
Creating a gallery wall filled with your children’s artwork is easy and will give a colorful and personal touch to any room. Keep it simple and let the art be the focus with monochrome matted frames in assorted sizes.
