2. A Boring Family Basement Gets a Modern Makeover
This family uses their basement for watching movies, playing, and hanging out together. The space satisfied many of these functions, but with its hodgepodge of furniture, beige walls, and random floorplan, it was less than inspiring. With the help of 6th Street Design School, this bland space was transformed to one with patterned wallpaper, bright colors, ample seating, and function specific areas.
3. The Unbreakable Decor of Kimmy Schmidt
Ive been watching Netflixs new show The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and I love Kimmys youthful, colorful, and yet tailored style. The show is a visual treat, relying heavily on shades of pink, teal, purple, and yellow. Kimmys clothes and the apartment that she shares with Titus are effervescent, and even Mrs. Voorhees more sophisticated digs are light, modern, and graphic. Here are some colorful products that channel the unbreakable energy and spirit of the show.
4. Every color goes together
In a recent interview with Refinery29, Bradford Shellhammer of Bezar said, My whole thing is, every color goes together. I dont care. Itll complement or contrast.

In honor of Bradfords bold statement and in defiance of every tenet youve heard about restricted color palettes, here are 10 rooms that embody this more is more when it comes to color philosophy.

7. The IKEA VITTSJO
For years IKEAs EXPEDIT has been a ubiquitous storage solution for homes everywhere. But recently the Swedish furnishing giants VITTSJ? has been showing up more and more on my design radar. It doesnt scream IKEA, and youd never guess the system starts as low as $40. The black metal and glass shelving system has a nice industrial quality on its own, but it seems to really shine when its given a bright coat of paint. Here are five really great examples of VITTSJOs potential.

9. Bryants modest mid
I live in a 1955 Atomic ranch house, located beneath stately live oaks in balmy Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I bought this 1,160 square foot home just over two and a half years ago and was delighted to see that most of its original character had been left intact blonde brick, oak tile floors, wall of windows, sliding glass kitchen cabinets, phone recess, attic fan, car port, metal rimmed laminate counters, etc.
10. Modern superhero boys room
Mallorys 3 boys begged for a room with Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Hulk and a chalkboard. To incorporate all that and still create a cute, charming, handmade room might seem like a tall order, but Mallory nailed it with this colorful and graphic bedroom, perfectly suited to please the whole family.
