But switch out that crib and add some toy storage, and it's also perfect for a growing girl. The books and knickknacks on the shelf will change, but the bright colors, multipurpose furniture and neutral walls and floors can grow and morph until college. A black wall makes for a very sophisticated nursery (with lot of opportunity for bright pops of color). Use chalkboard paint and this becomes the perfect graffiti wall for ages 2 to 18. Another black accent wall in a nursery. With the classic Eames rocker and the simple, neutral decor, this baby room could could last through college. Bright walls and fun patterns make sense for a long time. The black and white ceiling stripes stimulate an infant's brain, and they still make sense for a teenager who wants to turn the room into a punk rock palace. More classic furniture combined with bright color. The Frames wallpaper by Taylor & Wood transforms the wall into an interactive, constantly changing canvas.

It might be all about low‐slung pendants and marquee lights right now, but a crystal chandelier is never dated. More than a mere light, it adds instant sparkle, glamour and just a smidgen of grandeur to any space. Even a budget model – as opposed to an original French rewired antique – gives that extra je ne sais quoi. Don't automatically choose bronze, by the way.

You can go a bit wilder with color, because you won't have visual clutter competing with a bold wall. But bright orange is a tough color to pull off, even in a minimalist space. Take a tip from this room and limit the color to one or two smaller walls, and pair it with shades of a neutral – such as sage green.

These ribbed porcelain tiles serve the bathroom in a physical, practical and visual way. They simultaneously stimulate the feet, provide a practical nonslip surface and add visual depth. Light bounces off the irregular, diamond‐cut ridges for a playful, elegant effect.

This project was for a cooking school in Denver, but there's no reason you can't import purple into your home kitchen. "Katy Hume, the chef and owner of Stir Cooking School, has a contagious personality, and we wanted her vivacity to be portrayed within the design", says Momoko Morton of Naka Designs.

I recommend that clients select appliances and sinks during the preliminary design phase, which often comes before selecting the rest of the finishes and fixtures. This is so the plans can reflect the proper sizes, which will in turn affect the cabinetry layout.

Another way to mix up a set of matching chairs is to re‐cover the seats in an array of different fabrics. Or, for nonupholstered wooden chairs, simply add fresh seat cushions in a pleasing range of colors and patterns.
