The Container Store’s Clear Shelf Divider is a clever way to keep sweaters, jeans and other items neatly stacked on your closet shelves. It serves double duty, thanks to a built-in valet hook for hanging items.
With this in mind, we return to our reality. Now that summer is over and we hurry towards wintertime, outdoor canopy beds are put aside for an encounter with cozy canopy beds in the bedroom. Feathered beds used to be frameless bags filled with feathers that had to be fluffed every morning. Now we indulge in soft but sturdy mattresses with luxurious bedsheets under breezy canopies.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
All the walls are sunny yellow, the shelving unit is bold blue, and there are some cream-colored cupboards. The china collection on the shelves becomes a part of decor, and there's a rustic vintage dining table of wood. The kitchen countertop is clad with white marble, and the lamps are vintage brass ones. There's a vintage black hearth and a white tile backsplash around it with some shelves. The space is made cozier with a wooden dresser, curtains and a vintage upholstered chair with carved legs.
Yellow is a bold design choice, but it's popular in adventurous kitchens for a good reason – it's a cheerful color full of energy and optimism, associated with cleanliness and freshness. Part of this energetic perception contributes to its association with the marketing of healthy foods. It's appetizing! Yellow is the color of ripe bananas and fresh citrus fruits like tart pineapples and lemons. And if you're working with an especially dark kitchen, there's simply no better way to brighten the space and let this warm natural tone bring nature to you. Check out our yellow room inspiration post to see ideas for the rest of the home.
Today's teenagers are design-conscious and up to date on the latest trends. But they're torn between childhood and adulthood. Most teens have beloved toys they're not ready to give up, but look for a room that's older and more sophisticated than their childhood room.
The simplicity of this bathroom is the perfect contrast to the stunning views. By sinking the tub into the floor, the designer allows the bather to feel as if they are washing off in the still waters of a lake. The wood features in this bathroom mesh well with its views, letting you feel at one with the surrounding woods.
In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
