Here's a fresh twist on the stodgy library: The bookcase was customized to fit around the pale gray settee, then filled with colorful books and accessories. The room is a perfect example of the rule the designers used throughout the home: Neutral building materials only, then color layered in for a firework finish.
Multicolored Transitional Bedroom With Striped Rug
Sunlight beams into this adorable bedroom, highlighting the colorful floral wallpaper. A striped blue-and-white rug is a fun juxtaposition to the bold patterns and bright pink seen throughout the space.
Ideal for hosting parties or cooking for two, this functional kitchen features an arched vent hood, detailed cabinetry and alcoves built in above the stove to hold spices, oils and other flavorings for convenient cooking. Design by Gail Drury
Thick white trim creates a cohesive look in the open design of this home. The living room features a lime-green accent wall behind a large built-in shelving unit with a custom library ladder. A round wood coffee table echoes the rich wood of the hardwood floor, and a shag rug brings a soft texture to the room.
The living, dining and family rooms open into each other and are trimmed in bright white for a fresh and dramatic appearance. A lime-green accent wall pops in the living room, and the color is repeated in the family room. A large built-in bookshelf surrounding the mounted TV provides ample storage and display space.
This girls bathroom has a colorful floral wallpaper that gives this space a lively feel. The bright blue patterned window treatments, upholstered stool cushion and the white cabinets round out the room.
A no-holds-barred approach to decorating results in a whimsical undersea adventure in this media room and playspace. Shell-shaped theater seats and a treasure chest-turned-entertainment console create a focal point on one wall, while colorful murals and built-in seating are presented on the adjacent wall.
Colorful Girl's Bedroom With Butterfly Applique Accent Wall
A full wall of butterflies is a beautiful, feminine accent wall that draws you into this colorful girl's room. Two red-framed twin beds are separated by a navy dresser with matching table lamps. A white and yellow striped rug covers the majority of the floor space.
A custom library ladder is a fun accessory for the large shelving unit in this living room. The lime green pops nicely against the surrounding orange walls, and the room is unified with thick white trim. A tufted white sofa matches the trim, while wood tables blend with the hardwood floor. Midcentury-modern chairs with matching ottomans complete the space.
