Designer Trish Johnston tackles a family basement with no architectural interest or storage. A dark palette and textured, split-face rock wall camouflages the TV, while a gallery wall creates a focal point. Smart use of built-ins supply ample storage for toys, and the addition of a reading nook and a desk max out the functionality of this sleek space.
A tiny city condo bedroom in builder-basic beige is reimagined by Reiko Caron in aquatic shades and grey bedding to mimic the lake view outside. Discover her steps to recreate her watery ombré paint technique. Two stunning nautical lights and artwork add visual interest, while a gallery wall and decorative ladder disguise an air vent and speakers.
When faced with her trad dining room design, designer Colette Varghese performs a quick, inexpensive makeover with dramatic results. See how the watercolour-style floral wallpaper she chose conveys a romantic quality, with a contemporary energy. Formerly white wainscoting and built-ins are transformed by a smoky grey paint.
