There's plenty of it in this room, yet the feel is very light and bright. Go for a crisp white shell, then choose black for woodwork, furniture and accessories to tap into its dramatic character while keeping the space airy.

Grass cloth wallpaper and burlap shades add texture and warmth, helping a redbrick fireplace settle into the space. Wood furniture close to the darkest tones in the brick also helps. Larger amounts of blue in a rug and pillows, and just a dash of red, make for a classic nautical look.

To get this quirky, charming look, tuck a classic diner‐style table up to a corner banquette backed with a wall covered in fresh, modern wallpaper. The combination of a corner banquette (to maximize seating) and printed wallpaper (to add depth) is great for small spaces.

Brighten up the nook with glass pendants, a colorful table setting and freshly picked flowers. Note how the pullout drawers under the benches provide storage – a perfect place in which to keep all your board, card and trivia games for after‐dinner fun.

The first time I saw a really fun kids' bed was in the 1980s, on the show Silver Spoons, starring a very young Ricky Schroder and Jason Bateman. Little Ricky's bed was a white racecar, and every kid wanted one (we also wanted that train he rode around the manse). Today the racecars have been upgraded to high‐end Ferrari models, and other thematic beds have followed suit, from boats to wrestling rings. See if you can find one that might ease your time‐for‐bed struggles. A small car is a great transitional bed between crib and big‐boy bed (perhaps a future Ferrari). I am sounding sexist; of course a car can inspire your little Danica Patrick or Lella Lombardi wannabes too. Have fun with the bed and let it inspire the rest of the room. In this case, the car is parked in swinging London. An overnight pit stop here, with a hideaway loft overhead, has all the fun of a motor speedway. A wall mural is a simpler way to put hot rods into context. Let you child count down the years until that driver's test with a mural of your hometown (in this case, Atlanta). Canopy beds were invented to keep out cold drafts hundreds of years ago, and royalty enjoyed them. Today they are still fit for a little princess. Nautical style can give bunk beds a boat‐cabin feel; a porthole window and marine lights add to the look. Bunk beds can take on all kinds of structures. Secret treehouse fort meets sleepy time in these tucked‐away bunk beds.

The combination of the soft ottomans, leather chair and luxurious rug brings a sense of depth and comfort to this elegant scheme.

"I love a little bit of surprise in a room, and of course hanging a chandelier gives me just that", says Robin Denker of Kitchens By Design. "A little bit of bling, something unexpected, like using clear prism lightbulbs in a chandelier".
