This vibrant crafts room is bound to bring out anyone's creativity. Painted pegboard and simple shelves keep supplies organized, while paisley valances and orange lamps add color and pattern to the lime green room.
"Colorful produce is a fragrant and easy way to add style to the entry," stylist Matthew Mead says. "Inexpensive fruits like green apples, tangelos and lemons" add interest everywhere, from centerpieces to the staircase, and create engaging focal points, he says.

This eclectic sunroom features paneled ceilings, custom Roman shades and peppy sage-and-white trim that makes the millwork pop. Modern chairs team with a woven sofa and reclaimed wood-topped coffee table for an effect that's casual yet effortlessly chic. The once dark and dated farmhouse is now open and airy, with a contemporary color palette and tons of natural light.
The woodwork in this striking foyer was inspired by a historical plantation in Virginia. Walls are striped with pastel green, while the hardwood floors are painted in a decorative diamond pattern. The antique walnut bench and framed artwork are more traditional pieces in the design.
Green Asian-Style Hallway Encourages Peace, Tranquility
In this Asian-inspired hallway, sea green wallpaper covered with trees, birds and flowers encourages peace and tranquility. Round pendant lights above create visual interest, while identical drawers and mirrors create symmetry and balance.
The subtle shifting in the square mirrors adds dimension and texture to what is typically a flat surface. The mirror has been hung on a green wall and positioned behind a wood table on which are two yellow lamps, a small silver bucket with pink orchids and a small green tray of knickknacks.
A gracious entry hall sets the tone for this apartment with white wainscoting and tasteful wallpaper. The adjacent sitting room features a built-in bookshelf, dark wood furniture and a neutral area rug.
Hand-Painted Hallway Mural With Traditional Wood Ceiling Moldings
This lively hallway boasts floor-to-ceiling hand-painted murals, featuring crystal blue skies and dreamy bodies of water. Dark brown moldings accentuate the traditional tray ceiling, while a wrought iron railing leads the way to the staircase.
In homage to traditional Mexican dining, a wrapping carrara marble bar puts customers in intimate proximity to the kitchen. A unique light green patterned wall runs the length of the bar seating adding contrasting color to the wooden ceiling beams.
