Step inside the light, bright, and colorful home of Kirsten Krason, the blogger and designer behind 6th Street Design School.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Art in Motion

      My husband is a pilot, so I had him take pictures of clouds while he was flying to use as art in this room. To make the all-white, IKEA Ribba frames pop, I painted the insides red. I love how the red ties in the lamp.

    • Small-Bedroom Style

      Because my son's room is small, I couldn't put too much furniture in it. I tried to make the few pieces I had stand out, which is why I upholstered his headboard in a vibrant and bold fabric.

    • A Touch of Pink

      My daughter's nursery is one of my favorite rooms in the house. I love the pop of pink from the upholstered chair. I found this chair on Craigslist for $25 and had it recovered in a vibrant bright pink.

    • Simple & Sweet Nursery Decor

      I tried to keep the art and accessories minimal in this room because it is such a tiny space. The art above the crib is sentimental and sweet.

    • Room to Play

      Our playroom is a lifesaver for us. We spend hours down in this room playing together as a family. I wanted the space to feel imaginative, youthful, and also well-designed.

    • Dress-Up Corner

      I loved playing dress up as a kid, so I knew that was something I wanted to incorporate into the playroom. We used a small corner to display some cute dress-up clothes, and the full-length mirror enables the kids to see how cute they look!

    • Creative + Colorful Storage

      We have a lot of random toys, so I was pretty excited to get them all organized. I love that the bottom of these shelves can store larger bulky toys. Baskets and large bins corral big cars, blocks, and balls.

    • Curtain Call

      In our master bedroom our bed is against an off-center window. We solved this problem by using curtains to create the illusion that the window is longer than it actually is.

    • Deck the Walls

      I stenciled an accent wall and then framed prints from an old calendar to create this look in our master bedroom. The whole design cost me under $200 -- frames and all! Framing calendar art has since become one of my favorite decorating secrets.

      Bargain Buys

      Everything in my living room was an incredible deal. I got my garden stool for $10, my love seat for $250, and the large clock behind the sofa was $50!

      Balancing Act

      Because my living room has lots of bold pattern, I used a white coffee table and neutral furniture to create places for the eye to rest. I try to always balance my love of color and pattern with large chunks of white in a room.

      Livable Color

      My living room incorporates one of my favorite colors, navy! I partnered the blue with lots of white and pops of pink. The garden stool shown here doubles as extra seating or an end table for drinks.
