Tineke Triggs designed a room for a young pre-teen artist. Using paint as her inspiration, Triggs splattered the ceiling with color, chose a rug that looks like a watercolor painting and designed a desk to look like dripping paint. Clever storage tip: Triggs affixed mason jars to a piece of wood and hung it over the desk.
Unify Areas Through Color When merging pieces from different design styles, a coat of paint can easily help you unify pieces. Notice how the modern white floating shelves look right at home with the vintage desk. Originally the desk was black, but after a couple of coats of high-gloss paint we have a duo that is not only functional, but also easy on the eyes. Photo courtesy of Camila Pavone.
