Where two rooms are linked but not entirely open, create flow by painting both the same shade. A neutral colour scheme allows the freedom to ring the changes using accessories, giving each room its own personality without the risk of jarring. Turn an open plan space into a functional family living area with clear zones for relaxing and dining. Soft taupe walls in a matt finish unites the two rooms and forms an elegant base for this traditional neutral decorating scheme. The space has been cleverly divided up with two textural rugs and the positioning of the furniture.
Change out what's underfoot. Area rugs can be a large investment, but with some smart shopping, you can transform the look of your floor with a great deal. A neutral rug with a graphic pattern, like the one designer Allison Lind chose here, will be in style for many years to come.
If your budget allows, go for a complete makeover. Start with a neutral base, selecting all your permanent pieces, such as sofas, chairs and tables, in go-with-anything neutral shades. Then, add in color and style with pillows, framed artwork and accessories. Here, designer Joel Snayd uses a gray-and-white color palette to set the tone for this contemporary farmhouse living room. He brings in the glam with all the pieces that can be switched out later, like the floral-printed stools, colorful bolster pillows and eclectic mix of accessories.
A rocker is a must-have piece of furniture for kiddos. Not only is it great for lulling little ones to sleep, but it's also the quintessential reading spot. Luckily, rockers come in all shapes, sizes and styles, so find one that fits right in to your design. Also, with kids, you spend a lot of time on the floor, so consider having comfortable throw pillows around to sit or lay on.
