Red and yellow are the two obvious favorites when it comes to accent hues in the black and white bathroom. If you are stuck in a studio apartment or stylish urban loft with little greenery around, then potted plants are a great addition as well. Gold, brass and copper are a few of the hot metallic accents that are really taking over in 2014. These glittering additions also look ravishing as accent touches while keeping in tune with the theme of your bathroom.
From the classic, we move on to the contemporary, and the options here are simply endless. The black and white look in the bathroom seems custom-made for those who love the minimalist approach to interior design. The lack of color makes it an ideal choice, as it eliminates any additional frills. Combine this with clean and well-defined lines, lacquered surfaces, a floating vanity and minimal decor, and you have the perfect minimalist bath. The addition of a standalone tub in black or white that complements the rest of the bathroom is a stylish bonus.
Opt for a gender neutral design. If your powder room is screaming with pink frills or plastered in photos of centerfolds, you’re definitely alienating many of your guests. (Not to mention, those are both hideous choices for any sort of décor!) Instead, choose colors and designs that cater to a wider range of tastes – such as earth tones.
The room below is traditional, but a clever combination of colorful accents and artistic flourishes make the space truly interesting. A pink striped rug, large botanical artwork and elephant side tables are three of the eye-catching selections that call attention to the decor itself, rather than the limited space.
Many people with small spaces lament that they can’t fit more decor into the mix. But if you carefully choose each piece, you may be surprised at the amount of detail you’re able to include! A tufted sofa, striped draperies, a chandelier and geometric shelving make a big statement in the space below.
In small spaces and wide open spaces alike, delineating room from room is another design challenge that can’t be ignored! How do you divide your space with style? If built-ins are an option, why not use the fireplace as a functional screen? Below we see a Brio Clear Red tile fireplace from Modwalls. [photo by Playhouse Design Group via Houzz]
Think of playful details, use lots of bright colors and make sure the whole decor is age-appropriate for your little girl to be happy while hanging out with friends, during her long hours of study or when she’s killing time. Bottom line: the decor for teenage girls’ rooms need to be highly appealing and visually aesthetic.
Living room layout is a fascinating area of interior design, because the living room is the place where we spend time entertaining, relaxing, and visiting with others. One of the most visible areas of the home, your living room can set the tone for the entire dwelling. The fact that this part of the house is so much fun to decorate is both exciting and potentially problematic. Why problematic? Because we often cram all of our favorite belongings into the space without considering how the pieces fit together.
But a beautiful color palette is not just about designing on a budget. It brings a child’s room to life while giving you the flexibility to change between styles and color schemes without too much hassle. While the theme of a boy’s room obviously determines the paint choices you make, you can always add an element of surprise with a splash of an exotic shade. These boy’s room paint ideas show you how to get the job done with flair…
