Also included here is a small piece of art in dreamy bedroom colors. Art does not have to be hung on a wall. Leaning small artworks against the wall provides a layered look. A step table is a great option beside a bed because it allows layers of surface area. A lamp, books, art, water and fresh flowers all fit on this versatile piece. Notice how the color of the step table adds to the room's palette. A petite tray table with a small drawer has just enough space for a colorful lamp, fresh flowers and a small jewelry box. Boxes of any style are great for holding earrings and necklaces taken off just before bed. This homemade bedside table consists of vintage suitcases on blocks. It's a creative and visual win for this room. Notice that the suitcases are on the low side, allowing for an adjustable lamp and a full view of the window. All the bedside basics fit onto a tray that provides a flat surface. Consider a wall‐mounted table for the tiniest of spaces. There's just enough room for an adjustable lamp, art and an alarm clock. A beautiful white chest of drawers holds a lamp in the center, a plant to the left and an alarm clock. Notice the federal‐style mirror to the side of the lamp, creating a layered bedside vignette.

Make the most of a breakfast nook by installing a complete compartment that keeps diners out of the way of the cooking action in the kitchen. Additionally, those on a budget will benefit from copying the style of the boxed‐in nook pictured here. Inexpensive wood can be painted white to make the area bright. To add value, choose a more expensive tabletop and treat it with a good sealant oil to keep it looking good with use.

If you have cupboards crammed with old VHS tapes or hundreds of jewel cases for CDs that are already loaded into your computer and other devices, it is high time to purge the old stuff. For discs you do want to keep, save space by removing them from the case and slipping the discs inside a binder made for the purpose. Just one or two media binders can hold hundreds of CDs, DVDs and Blu‐ray discs.

Take a basic set of matching wooden chairs and put your own stamp on them by painting each one a different hue. The trick here is to choose colors that have the same value (lightness or darkness), like all pastels, all midtones or all bright.

Without losing the getaway‐home element, this room has a much more tailored look than most bunk rooms. The bedding is simple and tucked in tightly. The tone on tone of whites gives the room a clean and serene feel. Curtains are neatly stacked with a dense fabric. To get this look with a lighter fabric, have the curtains lined with a heavier solid material to complement the pattern you are working with. Better yet, give your guest bunkers a treat by lining the curtains with blackout fabric. Mix it up. Mismatched bedding can transform the feeling of a bunk room. When beds are snuggled into a small hallway or attic, finding not a single matching sheet, blanket or pillow brings you back to childhood, when the cabin was heaven for old linens, dishes and furniture that weren't being used at home. To create this look, resist the urge to buy sets. See a pillow you like? Just grab it and continue your hunt. Visit antiques stores and look for old wool blankets and quilts. One trip to the dry cleaner and they're ready for bed.

On this animal rescue ranch, kicking off dusty boots and hanging one's hat upon opening the door are everyday occurrences. Designer Fellman (see the second photo) composed horseshoes found on the property and then had a metalworker solder them together.

"This room was designed to emulate what a kitchen might look like in the countryside of France", says Jo Ann Alston, principal at J. Stephens Interiors. "The mustard yellow is very indicative of a French color palette, and the hand‐done plaster technique on the walls, with the overglaze of a faux‐finish technique, makes the walls look aged".
