First and foremost, what is a trundle bed? Usually seen as a set of twin beds, one lies atop while the other is pulled out from underneath – almost as “storage.” Other times you may see a trundle pulled from underneath stairs or another living area of the home. They’re great for small bedrooms and apartments or when you need to save some space – or even create a versatile guest room that is deemed for both care-taking and entertainment. Another great use for them is with children. They can have guests sleepover and this can solve the problem of extra bedding.  Here are 10 Must See Modern Trundle Beds Perfect for Small Spaces that inspired us for their ability to conserve space while also offering several different decorative themes that can fit into a flat, apartment or home.

beige childrens bedroom

This system is the perfect option for your space-saving needs. It’s great for an apartment and the pull-out, trundle bed hiding underneath the home office space makes it easily accessible and super sleek once nighttime rolls around. We love that the bed can stay hidden during the day, making the space easier for entertaining and keeping a private space under wraps.

This is a great way to utilize a medium-sized bedroom but make it for workable for two. It’s also a great way to add extra space for your little one’s room when he’s ready for his first sleepover. In the meantime, that extra, pull-out bed can be relieved of the mattress and used for the under-the-bed storage. When everything is neatly coordinated into one corner, you’ve got the rest of the space for playtime, homework and lounging with friends!

contemporary boys beds

A daybed for all week long, but once the weekend rolls in and your best friend decides to stay over, you’ll need that pull-out bed that’s been hiding underneath your own spot. We truly can’t get over the innovation that is the trundle bed as it truly utilizes the smallest or biggest of rooms while remaining modern and stylish without too much fuss or overwhelming looks.

girls pink bedroom

This bedroom was already built for two, but your daughters won’t be alone all-year long. There will be plenty of nights when a sleepover ensues or cousins stay long enough to need a place to nap. That’s where this trundle bed comes into play. A contemporary design full of function and space-saving abilities, we love this blushing room and all its creativity.

girls trundle bed

If your have a smaller home or apartment, with a need for space for two kiddos, trundle designs are a definite way to furnish and decorate. They’re already a very contemporary idea so your modern vision won’t be lost. And this particular hot pink and crisp white room was made for a couple of little girls full of vibrancy. There’s enough room for keeping tidy, keeping organized and keeping rested with enough room for a both and a great night’s sleep.

kids wall bed with trundle

At first glance, this quaint modular system is a beautiful display on how to keep a child’s room friendly but also stylishly modern and organized. But, that green foundation seen on the charming twin bed is where you can pull-out and found a whole new bed to enjoy and lounge upon. Again, it’s perfect for sleepovers, when guests come to the house or to even use as storage when the mattress is gone.

light wood kids beds

A personal favorite of the entire compilation, this is the most traditionally styled modern trundle bed of the bunch. Although its foundation is quite contemporary and innovative, this proves how simple accessorizing can truly change a look to its entirety. A mattress underneath provides another place for another body, but it’s also a great way to store off-season clothes, books, excess toys and more!

modern kids bedroom furniture

This entire design is much more relaxed and apparent than some of its predecessors. You can actually see the extra bed within this system whereas in previous it’s hidden and tucked away. There’s not real benefit to either, it’s all about personal preferences and overall finish for your home. And this particular bedroom evokes a very youthful vibe but more influences by a high school or even college-age style.

red childrens bed

One of the smallest trundle beds on the list, this cherry-red piece is great to spruce up a little one’s bedroom. Weekend nights become more comfy and cozy than having to be in sleeping bags on the hard floor and the uniqueness of a young one’s bedroom being styled in a ultra chic and modern vision overpowers in such a sweet and sophisticated way.

It’s not exactly rare to use wood in a home. From hardwood floors to custom shelving, there are so many ways to bring the warmth and natural feeling of wood inside. But the homes featured in this post manage to go above and beyond, highlighting the beauty of natural wood by turning into unique accents through the use of wood slats. While each home uses the slat design in slightly different ways, each time it brings a special, interesting look to the room.

The first space comes from designer Eugene Anfilova. Here, the slats are not limited to a single room and instead act as a thread of the design throughout the home. The texture of the slats on the walls from the living room into the bedrooms ties each space together and has an almost calming effect. Further, the neutral wood color allows for a lot of other design options in terms of color and texture.

The second home comes from the same designer, though the use of the slats is somewhat more subtle in this space. The slats play with the other uses of bare, natural wood throughout the home from the kitchen table and chairs to the cabinetry.

Finally we come to some more general uses for the slats, rather than elegant but ultimately non-functional design elements. First we can see how they can create a beautiful and completely functional screen for hiding those necessary but not necessarily beautiful appliances like a television and entertainment center.

Slats are also a wonderful addition to outdoor spaces. The wood, of course, is a natural fit while the slat design allows air to circulate while still blocking a lot of sun, keeping spaces cool and comfortable even in the summer.

The next time you find yourself crammed in the a middle seat in coach, drinking a tiny bottle of wine in hopes of catching even a few moments of sleep, drift off to images of the life you might have lived: aboard a private Boeing 747-8. These luxury planes are bigger than many of the houses featured on this blog, with 4,786 square feet (444 square meters) of cabin space. The plan in this post was built by Boeing, then finished by Kirkland, Washington-based company Greenpoint Technologies. The final results are nothing to sneeze at with luxury lounges, private bedrooms, and even a full formal dining room. It’s no wonder that the U.S. government has said it will buy 747-8s to be the next Air Force One.

It would be surprising enough for most of us to see a sofa in a plane. But an entire lounge with multiple sofas, a coffee table, and a wall mounted flatscreen? That's a far cry from a little extra legroom.

Because the planes are delivered without the finishing touches intact, it is easy to have the plane's design customized to meet the needs of whoever is buying it - whether it's the President of the United States or an anonymous oil baron from the middle east.

Everyone dreams of getting a good night sleep on long flights, but it's rarely possible. For your next transcontinental flight, those dreams could come true in a private stateroom complete with a King sized bed, blackout shades, and luxury linens. At the end of a transcontinental flight, you'll be fully rested and ready to start ruling the world.

Of course, to keep making money so that you can pay for this luxury aircraft, you'll have to do quite a bit of work. Luckily, the plane is equipped with an office as well as a conference room (that doubles as a place for formal dining). Once you wake up from that luxurious nap, you can get straight to work not matter how high off the ground you are.

Finally, the 747-8 also has a lounge on the second level, adding another  393 square feet of lounging capabilities.

Strong with a very contemporary and a bit of a masculine feel, iron canopy beds mix the best of the both worlds: romantic and bold styles. With or without fabric, in neutral rooms or bright colored spaces, these pieces can pop with edge and add a trending, sleek statement. Check out the 10 iron canopy beds we’ve compiled showcasing lovely ideas, designs and photos that can bring the ultra chic to your bedroom decor.

canopy bed with large posts

Perfect for a young couple or a bachelor creating his very first home. We love the simplicity surrounding the room but the very fashion-forward, easy essence flowing through the open and brightly-lit space. The iron gives a gorgeous contrast to the light walls and the no-fuss bedding keeps within the confines of a simple vision and a futuristic energy.

canopy beds with large headboard

This is a more traditional choice but it’s still a beautiful one. Decorating the bed with whatever linens inspire you from super eclectic to homey and quaint. But the bones of this piece are strong and bold, making any bedroom of the house much for sophisticated and in-style than without the romantic, canopy aspect. And don’t forget the tufted headboard, giving it a more feminine and free quality.

dark metal canopy bed

A thicker foundation and a color that will blend with both brown and charcoal tones, this bed has a more masculine tone. It works within a ultra chic and modern setting but it also works within a more trendy and youthful arena as well. We’d love to see this piece with a contrast of femininity by adding pastel bed linens with bountiful texture and prints.

feminine canopy beds

Delicate lines and a very feminine quality, this iron canopy bed sets the scene for a vintage-inspired space mixed with modern undertones. We love the contrast of antiquity and contemporary style within this bedroom and all of the focus comes from the addition of this bed. There’s a romantic vibe and a unique setting that all come from this choice and we love the fabric addition giving a little extra privacy when night falls.

gothic furniture

For something really unique and outside-the-box, check out this gorgeous design. Vintage appeal and royal-like qualities are infused and made to create this stunner of a bed. Covered in more traditional linens, this iron canopy piece sets the tone for a beautiful mix of old and new in a very different and eclectic setting. Accenting with neutrals will always work but we’d also love to see this bed surrounded by rich, jewel tones.

King size canopy bed

Here’s another chic and traditionally modern choice. Black is a great foundation for contrasting and accenting. It’s also a timeless, always-in-style option you will never go wrong in. It’s perfect in this space with the purple pick and the crisp white walls, but it would also do well in a posh studio apartment surrounding by cherry reds and even a bit of silvery tones.

What makes this design so special is the added fabric. It brings a whimsy appeal, it brights a romantic charm and it definitely adds a bout of femininity making the room, as a whole, more welcoming, inviting and relaxing. We love the textural foundation, giving a more casual style to the stark room but we also love the height of this bed and the drama that adds to the spacious area. Its chic, inspired by the natural personality of the outdoors but still very energy focused.

ornate metal canopy beds

We love the detailing of this bed! It has it’s very own built-in pattern making it a more artistic and contemporary choice among the masses. It’s still strong in its bones but delicate in its appeal. Mix with more girly decorative pieces or go for a more bold choice with richer, passionate tones making it a much more dramatic focus and finish throughout the space.

traditional metal canopy bed

Golden and glowing, this is a personal favorite among the list. It’s much more charming and fairy-tale like than the rest of the piece but it’s also got a unique shape and structure. The room itself is full of fun textures and this bed only adds to that interest and incredible mix of liveliness and style. Gold will always be a classic combination when paired with cream, so this room knocks the entire look out of the park.

white metal canopy beds

Light and refreshing, this iron canopy bed design may be the most feminine and romantic bed of the bunch. The foundation is a bit more delicate than the thicker, chunkier iron bones but we love the delicacy and detailed lines of this bed. It can mix well within a variety of bedroom themes while still giving off a sophisticated and beautiful tone.

Using plenty of color in designing a kid’s room is not exactly reinventing the wheel. But the four rooms featured in this post are a far cry from the standard Playskool primary colors and safety scissors. Not only does each room take full advantage of natural lighting, they use playful patterns and sophisticated design elements to create rooms that are not only kid friendly but also stylish, trendy, and gorgeous.

The first room offers a creative option for sharing space. While some homes might have strictly enough space for siblings to have their own space, sharing a room can actually be a welcome and valuable experience at a certain age. This room is clearly designed to have brother and sister share peacefully. The room is divided by a partial wall that contains desks and study areas for both children. In addition, varied patterns are used to give both sides their own personality - in particular, the creative borders at chair rail height that alternately contain chalkboard paint and quirky bicycle graphics.

The next room would perhaps be best suited to an older girl and comes from designer Masha Gluzdakova. The room is large enough to serve as a complete retreat, to host sleepovers, and generally allow a teenager to retreat from the world as they are wont to do. The sunny reading nook is particularly inviting, with a cozy, brightly colored hammock and a few comfy pillows.

The third bedroom is astronomically stylish, perfect for a stargazer of any age. The bright moon light that hangs over the bed glows brightly while a high tech telescope lets whoever inhabits the room make their own nightly discoveries.

The final room is a bit smaller in size but the design is entirely modern and comfortable. A custom lofted bed leaves room for a couch underneath where the boy who lives here can relax, or where a friend can comfortably spend the night. The wood paneling on one wall blends beautifully with the wood flooring and chocolatey brown ombre wall treatment on the opposite wall. The tones are muted but the results are a bit playful completely welcoming.

Living with the view of a golf course is a certain kind of accomplishment. It speaks to luxury, relaxation, and the ability to enjoy the finer things in life. This house on the edge of a golf course in Valencia, Spain, designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, is no different although the way in which it communicates that luxury is quite unique. The elliptical shape of the exterior of the home is immediately striking. While the shape seems to almost mimic and highlight the natural curvature of the earth, at the same time the stark white color gives it an otherworldly effect. Inside, open spaces, simple furnishings and careful compositions make this a space this relaxing not in spite of, but because of its creativity and beauty.

The outdoor space of the home emphasizes curves, ellipses, semicircles, even bringing these smooth rounded edges to the pool design. The curves make the open space feel even bigger than it is, inviting comparison to the natural (but manicured) expanses that surround the house.

Inside the home, everything feels open with air and light flowing from one side of the house to the other easily. Minimal furniture serves to open up the space even further on both levels. Colors are kept to a minimum as well, with shades of white and gray making up most of the home. From every angle, occupants can look out onto the garden or surrounding greenery, giving the home a feeling of being both at one with and entirely removed from its natural surroundings.

Being new parents is a magical – albeit stressful – time. Sharing the love that you have for your spouse and your child with the world is beautiful. But sharing your space with them isn’t always quite so easy. That’s why we’ve decided to feature these designs that manage to make living in somewhat cramped quarters with your little one (or little ones!) look just as fun and easy as it does on TV. Take a look inside these home and start to realize that giving up the childless life doesn’t have to mean giving up on style.

The first apartment, from designer Nicholas Plaxin, is quite compact. To make enough space for an entire family, the apartment actually utilizes a system of folding doors that lets the occupants keep sleeping areas out of sight during the day. It is not that the soft gray beds are necessarily unattractive, but when you have to look at your bed as you try to feed a toddler breakfast your home can feel that much more confining.

The next home we are featuring is certainly a bit more spacious, but when you consider that these 60 square meters (645 square feet) are home to not one, not two, but three children and their parents, it starts to look a little more, well, little. Luckily, designer Anastsasiya Kashira is skilled and has used the idea of multipurpose spaces to create a home that works for this particular family. This is largely accomplished in the children's room. Two year old twins and a 10-year-old girl share the room, which is divided with  curtains. This way, the children can have their privacy while still sharing their play space in the center of the room.

Starting a family is an important conversation to have with your spouse before you're married. But once you really get ready to start expanding, you might want to talk to your interior designer, too. That's what happened for this young couple who decided they would soon want to hear that special pitter patter. The couple's home, which measures 53.5 square meters (575 square feet), was easily transformed into a family friendly space by designer Oksana Pavlova at the MANGO design studio. The use of vibrant, playful colors make the home perfectly suited to a young child while carefully divided space give the couple an open living room, kitchen and dining area, sunny workspace, and of course, room for a small nursery.

Instead of old fashioned bookshelves, why not look for unique alternatives as a means to display and organize your book collection? Shelves are a must, of course, but wall shelving could be the answer to a more stylish look. They’re less chunky, bulky, unsightly and space-consuming, which is great for smaller rooms, homes or apartments and you can find designs that work as artistic additions to the home. We did a little digging and found 15 Amazing Wall Shelving for Books Ideas and Designs that are fresh and fashion-forward ideas that we think you’ll fall head-over-heels in love with. Let’s have a look, shall we?

contemporary white bookcases

Modern with enough space for books and trinkets to display, we love this easy and light shelving unit. It doesn’t take up too much space but it also does well with providing interest and clean looks to the walls. This is perfect for a study, home office, bonus room or even as a spot in your larger living area.

cool book storage

Giving the illusion of kids running in a field, we love this abstract “art” pieces that double as bookshelves. This keeps within modern tempo but adds a lightness and family-friendly energy into any room of the house. It’s hard to keep a warmth in a home with a lot of contemporary infusion, but with pieces such as this, you get the best of both worlds.

creative book storage

Now, to get really interesting, we have a piece that doesn’t even look like a shelf at first glance. Fit your favorite books inside and have it double has a puzzling, artistic masterpiece in your bedroom or even in the kitchen for your cookbooks. It’s funky, fresh and will become a conversational piece for when guests come by.

dark wood bookshelf

A rustic charm and a modern design, this wall shelving for books system looks like a piece of art first and a place to store books far second. We love the hominess but also unique power behind this design. The neutral foundation also gives it a versatility that a lot of shelving systems have but don’t have the added fashionable element.

geometric wall mounted shelves

Funky and spirited, we’re loving this youthful, modular piece. You can fit a lot more books in this system than you may believe at first glance or, of course, fit both trinkets and books inside together. The neutral tone is perfect for versatility purposes but we’d also love to see this in bright, popping colors!

modern bookshelves

These fixtures are large and chunky but that’s okay if you have a very open and spacious room to put them in. You can see from both sides do you have to make sure it’s styled from all angles but that’s also where the fun and creativity comes into play.

oval wall mounted bookshelves

Probably our favorite from the bunch, these rounded wall shelves are such a fun pop for absolutely any room of the house. Of course, they’re great for organizing and displaying your book, but you can truly use these for a variety of great ideas. From spices in the kitchen to essentials in the bathroom, these are very versatile picks!

picture frame book storage

Your eye didn’t fool you, these aren’t mirrors! These eclectic shelves resemble picture frames too, but they have a lip deep enough to hold your favorite books inside. We love them hung in a collage of sorts for the bedroom, home office or even in the hallway  … but we feel that they’re also strong enough to stand on their own or in pastel colors, bright shades or funky prints!

These wall shelving for books systems work separately but they also work together, reminiscent of a film roll – perfect for a movie room to hold all your media! They’re modern enough to  hang in different rooms of the house as well with its clean and easy shapes and lines.

If you’re looking for something completely outside-the-box and even a bit eclectic and industrial, look no further than this masculine idea. Utilize any nook or corner of the house with a system such as this, it’ll hold more books than you may think and help to transform any room into something much more unusual.

standing metal bookcase

This may not be an actual “wall” shelving system but we sure do love this shelf that can stand alone. We love how it can create interest in a room, fill a corner and all the while organize and tidy up a space that doesn’t need any chaos to take away from its overall look.

tree bookshelf

We may have found the perfect addition to the kids’ room or even their playroom. A reading corner just got so much more fun and stylish. A tree turned into a bookshelf, it’s quite the genius idea and it’s the perfect way to fill a bare corner and clean up messes – all while making a playful statement.

two tone bookshelf

We love the pockets this shelving system has to extra books to find a home in. It’s quaint, it’s not too bulky and would be the perfect addition to your home office. We love the interest and small details it has making a more traditional idea so much more intriguing and stylish.

ultra modern bookshelf

Here’s another stand-alone piece that can cure a bare corner and pick up the excess clutter with ease. It’s modern, it’s trendy and it’s perfect for your own hipster-inspired apartment. We’d love it in bright colors but of course, the neutral tones make a much more versatile piece.

While sometimes bigger can be better, that’s just not always an option, especially in densely populated cities. Luckily, the right designer can take even a small space and turn it into a home that is not just functional, but actually quite stylish.

The first space is an apartment in Lviv, Ukraine from the team at Grits Creative Group. The home is only 40 square meters (430 square feet) but still manages to have the requisite areas for a young, creative family.

A small living area with a cozy love seat, 60s-inspired chair and even a small work area, is perfect for a little bit of entertaining. A half wall keeps the kitchen and dining area separate from the living room without closing it off completely. Similarly, the lofted bed area is in an elevated nook, making it feel like a separate room when in reality there really isn't that much space.

Leather counter stools will always provide a classic, sophisticated and beautiful addition to any room. Whether it’s the sofa or a throw pillow, leather accents have the ability to help enhance and create a gorgeous, contemporary vision. Today, we’re shining a light on slick, beautiful leather counter stools that will brighten up any bar or breakfast space with a timeless charm. From traditional designs to more youthful, funky adornments, there are plenty of ways to use a leather stool and create your very own uniqueness. We love the texture of this simple material, whether real or faux, so let’s peek at some great options you could be using in your own home.

 

black and chrome counter stools

Classic and chic, these stools are the best way to mix function with easy style. These stools can literally fit inside almost any space to whatever usage you’d may need them for. The neutral tone works within any setting but the square design adds a contemporary element every home needs when they’re vision is a fashion-forward one.

comfortable counter stools

For a more futuristic and office-like try stools with a rounded back and footstools. These look great in a set or even as a single unit. They aren’t bulky but they definitely made a statement in any nook or cranny you set them in. And whether it’s a small or bigger space, they’ll fit right in.

counter stools with rounded backs

Similar to the leather counter stools above, these stools have a squarer back and an even more futuristic foot rest. We are loving the black foundation which is a bit outside-the-box of a traditional silver setting and we too think these work great on their own or in a pair at the breakfast bar or heightened kitchen table.

industrial counter stool designs

The mixing of interior design styles found in this piece makes it one of our absolute favorites. Tradition is held on top while contemporary industrialism is held on the bottom. There’s a definite masculine energy circulating throughout these pieces and they’re be great inside an industrial-visioned kitchen or even sitting on your architect desk in the home office.

lime green counter stools

Funky, slender and youthful, these stool designs were made for a home with eclectic style. The leather makes them a more quality choice but the color and design keeps them more fashion-forward and playful. Seeing this in your breakfast nook brighten up a more neutral space makes it an easy, family-friendly decision.

low back leather counter stools

These super chic and modern leather stool ideas work perfectly in this contemporary kitchen. They match up nicely against this counter and continue the strong, clean lines of the rest of the space. Crisp, textural white with silver bones, they’re a versatile and fresh touch to any space.

modern brown leather counter stools

Slick with fluid lines, we’re loving this duo of modern stools. They have a bit of a sophisticated, older essence which is great for a bar area or smaller kitchen. The smoothness and neutral foundation also makes them a versatile piece for whatever counter top you need them at.

simple counter stool designs

One of our most traditional photos of the pack. These stools are the perfect choice for the more homey and family-friendly of spaces. Great for the kitchen, breakfast nook, bonus room or even in the basement where the family plays, these stools can fit in anywhere and still leave a comfy aire about them.

super contemporary counter stools

These stools may not be the most comfortable of choices but they are ultra chic. They don’t take up too much room and keep the work space of the kitchen a bit more roomy and welcoming. We love stools that don’t bulk up smaller spaces, especially when people are going to be involved and this choice does the trick.

super cool counter stools

There always needs to be a colorful choice and these red beauties definitely work in a variety of spaces. Red is a timeless tone and will always work in more modern, contemporary of space. We love that they’re versatile enough to fit in more traditional homes too or ones that like to mix and match interior design themes.

ultra modern counter stools

The most futuristic and funky of the bunch, we’re in love with this snazzy style. They can create a fun focal point, enhance a ultra modern vision and not take up too much space in smaller parts of the home. We also love that they come in a few different colors – black and red will always be timeless, classic choices.

The space is certainly not huge, but the way it is organized is keeps the distinct areas separate with a small living room/entertainment area (perfect for gaming) nestled in next to a home office, ideal for those late nights working with a deadline looming. Of course, the corner desk with a sleek task chair is also perfect for PC gaming.

Away from the work area is the kitchen and another sofa, this one without a television. This way, the occupant can easily separate work from relaxation, business from pleasure. The sliding paneling that runs between the kitchen and sofa has a bit of edge to it while still serving its purpose well.

The accessories and details throughout the house give it a distinct personality. While hipster-inspired begins to describe it - faux mounted animal heads, for instance - it is a bit more eclectic than that. The tiled backsplash in the kitchen has a bit of country chic sensibility while the polka dot shower curtain and asymmetrical tiling on the bathroom floor offer their own playful whimsy.

The Polish city of Grudziądz sits on the Vistula River in the northern part of the country. It in this mid-sized city that you will find this beautiful and almost haunting home, designed by the team at Tamizo Architects, who we have featured before on this site. In the photos that follow it is interesting to see how the dark interior choices contrast with the expansive, snowy landscape that surrounds the house. Whether in the depths of summer or the brightness of spring, that natural light streaming in from outside has had a major impact on the interior design of the home. Each room is a study in interesting, subtle contrasts.

The main living area is mostly open, with only a floating fireplace to separate the family sofa from the dining room. White walls and dark furnishings give the space an almost sterile feel, as if it is ready for anyone to move in and take over with their own colors and life.

The kitchen and dining room, the heart of the home, feel warmer and more open due to the wood paneling used throughout. There is not as much space in the kitchen as you might find in some larger, gourmet designs but plenty one room on the island and breakfast bar for preparing a meal for a small family. Mismatched light fixtures over the dining table add a bit of playfulness to the design as well.

You may think that wallpaper is outdated and out-of-style, but you’d be completely wrong and completely out-of-the-loop in doing so. Just like the new and growing trend of wall decals, self-adhesive wallpaper does the same thing. It’s essentially a sticker for the wall and you can nix the nasty, mess of the old fashion way of papering your home. And, fortunately, these self-adhesive pieces come in an array of super chic, super stylish and super fashion-forward prints, patterns, colors and pictures. Let’s have a look at 12 fantastic must see self adhesive wallpaper designs and create our own decorating inspiration that transforms a room in your living space.

abstract wall paper

A classic black and white combination with a feminine and artistic touch, this wallpaper is perfect as an accent wall in the dining room, living room or even as a way to liven up the foyer. Pair it with bright colors as a gorgeous way to contrast and create interest, or blend with more neutral tones for a sophisticated, yet beautiful scene.

egyptian wall paper

Are you looking for something super unique to place inside your home office or even in the bonus room? Well, look no further than a spread of Egyptian hieroglyphics! This is such a fun and playful way to jazz up your home. Add color to bring in the family’s personality and to lighten up the rugged touch of the wallpaper’s pattern. We have no doubt that this choice will definitely add a certain “wow” factor to any space!

herring bone wall paper

If you’re in love with textured walls but without the means to make one happen in your home, look at some self-adhesive wallpaper. You can find and create that same look without the mess or without breaking the bank. Just take a look at this interesting, “wooden” textured look for a piece of this house’s dining room, it’s easy, breezy and very memorable and tone-setting.

new york city wall paper

Bring the city right into your home with a this scenic view. Again, black and white is a classic and will work in any setting, especially in a chic, modern space with a very “bachelor pad” feel about it. This too would work well with colorful pieces of furniture or accents to contrast and make everything pop! Of course, giving it a neutral foundation will enhance the contemporary charm and timeless essence.

pink self adhesive wall paper

Add a bit of retro flair to your contemporary space with the help of some wallpaper, just take a look at this example. With some 60’s inspiration, this pink and purple pattern gives a funky feel and a feminine quality with ease and simplicity. We love how its use to simply accent and not take over the room or overwhelm.

rustic wood wall paper

Here are a few more great example of wallpaper that gives a textural, interesting look. Large wood paneling will create a rustic, homey charm in the bedroom without the actual rugged feel of wooden pieces. This is great if you’re inspired by the great outdoors or a more natural and countryside interior design decor theme. It’s also great if you’ve always dreamed of living in a cabin and never had the chance to do so!

self adhesive wall paper

Like we promised, here’s another gorgeous, yet different, example of how wallpaper can be made to looks like a textured accent wall. These thing, wooden palletes help to create a chic, zen and natural-inspired room, which is perfect for those inspired by a more Asian setting. We love the soft gray wall and how the grassy greens pop right off of it, don’t you?

wall paper for sound room

If you’re looking for something to jazz up your teen’s bedroom or create a major different in a dorm room, then this is the pick for you. A wallpaper that resembles an array of speaker systems, it’s perfect for a youthful charm or music lovers all around. You get the look without the bulk and the fun without the mess (and wires). It’s such a unique and personal way to decorate!

wall paper with abstract artwork

Some geometric, contemporary patterns work great as accent walls, especially in lighter, brighter and bigger spaces. This choice acts not only as a beautiful accent but as art for the room. Coming in a variety of colors, go within this route if your vision is on the chicer, more adult and more contemporary side of interior design.

wall paper with bricks

Create a bit of magic inside the house. A secret door could really make a different in your space. This is the perfect idea for a more imaginative bonus room or give the kids something to get creative with inside their own bedroom or play area! You can create so many stories and give the room an extra punch of uniqueness to boot!

wall paper with forest

Bring the great outdoors inside with wallpaper that resembles some of the best scenery around. This may be a bit ironic for a city apartment, but we love the contrast of a sleek penthouse apartment in a metro area covered in wallpaper that sets the tone for some beautiful pieces of nature. We envision this scene inside a cozy breakfast nook, what about you?

wall paper with nautical theme

And last but not least, this treasure mapped self adhesive wallpaper design could really transform your husband’s home office into something so much more unique, special and personable. It’s masculine, yet interesting with an old-age, classic appeal. But it’s also fun for the family – who wouldn’t want a treasure map written on the walls of their own home?

When it comes to luxury interior design, beautiful results often start with a careful visualization. The homes featured in this post come from Ando Studio Fine Art Renderings and give designers and homeowners a chance to look at the dynamic possibilities any home can have, from unique furnishings to creative lighting design and every other element that truly makes a house a work of art.

The first house featured is a two-story duplex apartment. The visualization was created to generate interest in the home for sale by showing the potential of the space with simple yet stylish elements that could appeal to a wide variety of people. A neutral palette in black, white, gray, and bare wood creates calmness while also acting as a blank slate for the imagination of potential buyers.

Simple splashes of personality, like a houndstooth ottoman and purple solair chair give the otherwise sophisticated space just a breath of whimsy.

In this next luxury apartment, both visualization and interior design was done by Ando Studio for a private investor. It is easy to see the studio's capabilities with a neutral palette here as well. There is not as much floor space available in this upper level home, but simple colors and furnishings let it continue to feel open. In the small bedroom, different textures, from smooth wood paneling to a soft carpet and cushy bedding are welcoming but not too busy because of the subdued tones.

The final space is a residential building in Tel Aviv from Bar-Orian Architects. The interior design for this project was done by Irma Orenstein. This space goes even further with its love of white than the others in this post. Walls, ceilings, cabinetry, and bedding are all a gleaming shade of it with light wood flooring providing the only relief. The resulting home is nothing if not luxurious, as an average homeowner could never afford to keep all of it clean.

Although lighting is always an essential part of interior design, some designers do little more than include soft track lighting and perhaps a chandelier in the dining area. The lights in this post are so much more than practical. They provide light while also bringing creativity, art, and even humor into any room where they might be placed.
