7 Mathod to Decor The House Wall

Try Some Colours

The key to using colors of all stripes? Repeat one or two so the space feels cohesive. Here, homeowner Chassity Evans piled on the pink (pouf, pillow, rug, blankets) to tie the room together. She also showcased the various shades in creative ways layering throws on ladders, leaning art on a windowsill, topping a graphic rug with a striped one. For balance, neutral lamps and classic wood tables offset the bright hues.

You can go crazy displaying all kinds of art when you “cage it in” on recessed shelving. This all-white built-in & kitchen shows off a rotating collection of family favorites: works by local artists alongside Lilly’s and Fletcher’s paintings. “Commonly you’d see something like this in a living room, but why not try a gallery in a kitchen? Getting to look at art while I’m cooking makes me feel connected to the rest of the house,” says Chassity. She stashes plates and platters in the cabinets below.

A small space is an ideal place for a risky design move. “I always loved the look of Pop­ham’s tile but was afraid to commit, so I finally went for it with this 15 ½-by-7-foot floor space,” says Chassity. She grounded the look by painting the brick wall white (Pure White by Benjamin Moore) and keeping the rest of the space spare, with only a rustic display stand for art and a straw basket for shoe storage. (Coats and backpacks live in a nearby closet.) “Walking in through an airy entryway makes me smile every day,” she says.

Let a big, bold painting be the standout piece in a room by keeping all of the other elements quiet. That’s the strategy Chassity used in this breakfast nook, pairing a vivid watercolor painting bought online with neutral, toned-down furniture. The wood table’s pedestal base offers extra legroom, the swiveling vegan-leather chairs—originally meant for the home office—are easily wipeable and a cinch to climb in and out.

The trolls are in charge of this playroom’s palette (hot pink! bright orange! neon yellow!). Any colorful grouping looks deliberate when you display it on shelves painted the same white shade as the room divider to blend in. Chassity anchored the space with a four-foot-wide deep blue sofa and a (stain-hiding) overdyed rug. Even the windows got a dose of color, with the kids’ paintings adhered with washi tape and a playful pennant hung right above.

Dial Down the Tones, Pump Up the Pattern

A bedroom with lively prints can still feel restful if your color choices are calming. Here, Chassity used accents in sea-inspired shades: a nautical-navy headboard, aqua green pillows, and walls painted sky blue (Woodlawn Sterling Blue by Valspar). Symmetry makes a space soothing, too, so she flanked the bed with matching nightstands and space-saving sconces.

Sheet Your Whites

With spectacular architecture and design elements (herringbone-tile floor, glossy tub), there’s nothing more impactful than white. The ultimate finishing touch: a wavy white pendant. “The shape reminds me of the water,” says Chassity. “It makes this room relaxing and elegant at the same time.” Striped towels, kids’ drawings, and a potted palm add just the right splash of color.
