Amazing 2 Single Beds Room Ideas

Usually two single beds are placed in a shared kids bedroom or a guest bedroom. But instead of just putting the beds separately you can be a little more creative and put them at different angles. And even if you put them in the conventional way you can give attention to the walls, the bedding and other decor factors. If you are in search of some good furniture pieces you can buy them at Gum Tree. So, take a look at different ways to decorate a room with 2 single beds in the best possible way:

1. Put Two Storage Single Beds at An Angle and Add a Corner Shelf for Boosting Storage in a Kids’ Room

 

If both the beds of your kids are storage beds then put them at a right angle and fix in a storage unit in the corner space created between the two.

2. For a Room Shared by Two Girls Do it in Pink and White and Add Canopies to The Beds

If your girls are more towards the princess like pink bedroom then decorate it in pastel pink with hints of white and hang canopies for a fairy tale feel.

3. For a Guest Bedroom with Wood Ceiling Accent It with Mint Green Walls,White Beds and a Jute Rug for a Breezy Coastal Feel

Coastal decor is always a hit when done in the right way. For example this room that is a pure bliss.

4. For a Room Shared by a Girl and a Boy You Can Mark Their Cute Little Zones

You can also create zones for your kids by decorating in the tried and tested pink and blue combo.

5. Two Beds and One Long and Cozy Tufted Headboard

 

If you want something in the room that can pull focus then install one long tufted headboard. It will not only amp up the style but will also increase the coziness by many folds.

6. Decorate with a Minimalist Neutral Theme Because Less is More

If you want your room to have subtle tones then decorate with neutrals. They have the prefect balance and thus are not too warm and not too cold.

7. Take Inspiration from Dorm Style and Put The Kids’ Beds Lengthwise

You can take inspiration from a dorm room as well and place the storage beds in a row.

8. Go For a Monochromatic Decor Such as This Serene Green Twin Bedroom

You can also pick one color and then play with different shades of it in the room like this green bedroom that is just so calm.

9. Decorate with Gray and White and a Beadboard Wall Will Look Just Perfect in Such a Room

Image via: 12 play 4 fun

If you have neutral colored beds for example these gray beds then pair this color with a white wall. But instead of just painting the wall clad it with beadboard.

10. Decorate The Room with Patterns

Patterns used in the right proportion always look charming. For example this beautiful girls’ bedroom.

DON’T FORGET LIGHTING

Bright white rooms are perfect for those seeking a clean and tranquil space, but small pops of color here and there never hurt.

Fearless DIYers in a “Flipped” Portland House

Name: Tim and Kelly Fischer
Location: SE Portland, Oregon
Size: 1,650 square feet
Years lived in: Owned 4 years

After making offers on six other houses in Portland’s competitive real estate market, Tim and Kelly and their nine-year-old twin daughters Isabelle and Olivia were thrilled to finally have a home to call their own. The house they bought had just been “flipped” in a style that wasn’t necessarily theirs, but the Fischers saw an opportunity to make the new space the perfect cozy home for their family.

Kelly has great style and is also a fearless DIY-er. She inherited these traits from her mom, who is a multi-talented designer, and the person Kelly calls “a constant inspiration.” The family got right to work removing a main wall of the home to create the open living area they desired. Kelly also took on electrical work in her new home, switching out unattractive light fixtures, and designed and constructed custom furniture and built-ins herself.

Kelly and Tim are avid world travelers, and mementos and photographs from their many trips are displayed throughout their home. “Seeing how the rest of the world lives helps us appreciate what we have, and gives us ideas on how to better utilize our space.” Their cozy Portland bungalow is filled with plants, vintage finds, Kelly’s handmade furniture, and souvenirs from their travels. It feels like a nice place to come home to after a long trip.

Apartment Therapy Survey:

Our Style: We try to fill our home with eclectic pieces. Keeping it simple and neutral, so it’s easier to mix it up with smaller accessories. When we travel we bring back unique things to give our home character and meaning. We like it better when there’s a memory behind something.

Inspiration: Traveling — seeing how the rest of the world lives helps us appreciate what we have, and gives us ideas on how to better utilize our space. My mom has been doing this for years — she is a constant inspiration.

Favorite Element: Our bungalow is pretty tiny so we tore down a wall to create a more open-concept space between the dining and living room.

Biggest Challenge: We have a lot of trouble with our low ceilings and organizing our home to make it interesting, but keeping it low on clutter.

What Friends Say: “There’s always something interesting to look at — unique surprises in every room.”

Biggest Embarrassment: Our house was a flip, and the previous owner installed cheap carpet everywhere.

Proudest DIY: I have two! Our headboard my mom and I made from reclaimed cedar that was originally milled from my parents’ property. The other is the built-in shelving in our living room — I assembled and installed it
myself.

Biggest Indulgence: I’ve spent the most on good lighting, which is, admittedly, an addiction.

Best Advice: Decorating a home doesn’t have to be costly. If you have the resources and time to dig, you will be rewarded.

Dream Sources: If Emily Henderson outfitted my house, I might die.

Interior Design — Pretty Kitchen Makeover On A Budget

Designer Trish Johnston transforms a small family kitchen into a pretty space for a family with two little girls. See how she used glamorous finishes to add personality to every square foot.
Trish describes this bright and airy kitchen as a jewel box. To achieve this look, she painted the existing cabinetry in Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White (CC-40), replaced the countertops with a showstopping Calacatta marble and accessorized with brass and crystal hardware throughout. While the kitchen is small, Trish managed to fit an eat-in zone by extending the peninsula. A powdery shade of light blue on the cabinetry gives the space a dash of color, while an elegant patterned fabric on the blinds and upholstered stools offers an extra touch of opulence.

Wonderful Hallway Runner Ideas for Your Home

The hallway is the first part of your home’s interior. If it is designed inviting and cozy, it will leave a good impression on you and your visitors. To make a hallway cozy one very easy way is to roll out a stylish runner rug. Some really beautiful rugs are available at catwalk rugs too. Let’s say, if you want to add pattern to your hallway, roll out a striped runner. If you want to add texture, go for a woven rug. These and more designs are below for your inspiration:

1. Spice Up The Hallway  with a Traditional Runner

Image via: houzz , style blueprint

Old is gold and any runner with a traditional pattern will definitely increase the beauty of your hallway by many folds.

2. Create A Customized Runner with Carpet Tiles

Image via: flor , boston magazine

If you can’t seem to find the right size of the runner for your hallway then you can make one by yourself using carpet tiles. In this manner you can create the perfect combination of design and size without compromising on style.

3. A Floral Masterpiece

Image via: ideas designing

Flowers bring freshness and a feminine feel to any place they are added. And the same goes for a hallway.

4. Coordinating Stair and Hallway Runners

Image via: cybball

If your hallway has stairs too, then you can match the stair and hallway runners to create a harmony in style.

5. A Timeless Moroccan Stencil Runner

Image via: the everygirl

Some patterns are designer approved and one such pattern is a Moroccan stencil. No matter how many trends will come and go, Moroccan stencil can never go wrong.

6. A Woven Runner Rug with a Wonderful Texture

If you want to introduce texture to your hallway, then a woven runner is the decor element you should go for.

7. Dandy Striped Runners in Different Colors

If you are a fan of stripes, then depending upon your design taste go for a monochrome or a colorful striped runner.

8. A Classy Chevron Runner

Image via: memorable decor

Just like Moroccan stencil discussed above, chevron pattern is also timeless. It is a stylish pattern and goes well with almost any kind of interior.

9. An Animal Print Runner

Image via: houzz

Do you like animal prints? If yes, then decorate your hallway with an animal print runner. If you don’t want the print to be too loud, then you can go for a runner with an animal print in muted tones like this one.

10. Cheerful Color Pops

Want something lively and cheerful in your home? Then adorn your hallway with a jazzy runner.

Beautiful Bedroom Design Ideas For The Whole Family

“When you invest in your bedroom you invest in yourself”

 

Designer Gillian Gillies shares three bedrooms she designed for a family with two kids. Get her tips on how to create a space personalized to each family member, plus smart bedroom storage solutions that go beyond the closet.

In the parent’s master bedroom, Gillian wanted to create a spa-like retreat, so she used a palette of light green and blue for a soft and serene atmosphere. A built-in wall separates the dressing room, while a custom king-sized storage bed keeps clutter at bay. For the kids rooms, Gillian took a more layered approach with pattern, color and texture. The daughter loves art and is very creative, so Gillian kept the color scheme neutral so she can add in her own prints and accessories. The son’s room didn’t have a closet before the renovation, so adding storage, like a bed with drawers and a built-in desk, was the main focus of the renovation.

If there’s one room in your house that needs plenty of storage space, it’s the kitchen. Beautiful kitchens are a source of pride, and one way to keep your kitchen looking good is to keep it clutter free. But we all know that isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Between dishes, ingredients, and utensils, there are plenty of kitchen items that need a place to go. For people whose homes don’t have pantries, finding a convenient place to store things can get a little difficult. No one wants to clutter their counters with pots, pans, or dishes, but people also want to make sure that all of these items are easily accessible. This is where shelving comes comes in.

Shelves allow you to store your items in a way that reduces clutter but also makes them easy to get to. That all sounds well and good, but you’re probably thinking about how boring and ugly shelves can be. However, floating shelves offer storage and style. These shelves, which appear to be suspended in air, are a great solution for kitchens. If you want to see how amazing these shelves can look, especially in already beautiful kitchens, these examples will give you a taste. Here are 20 beautiful kitchens with floating shelves.
