    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.
