In typical Draper fashion it was girly but still simple and refined. Now that Sally is getting into her tweens and teens her rebellious side is starting to pop up. Sally may be a a girly girl for at least the beginning of her tween years but as she starts to develop her own style (and delves into the wild style of the early '70s) bold patterns and color may start to make an appearance in her room. Pale pink walls can be replaced with a vibrant (but tasteful) lavender and a bright pink duvet can cover up the old floral bedding. A graphic rug gives this bedoom the final dose of that great mod style.

Brighten up the nook with glass pendants a colorful table setting and freshly picked flowers. Note how the pullout drawers under the benches provide storage – a perfect place in which to keep all your board card and trivia games for after‐dinner fun.

Gleaming silver burnished bronze and shiny gold work as neutrals and do a brilliant job of livening up a dull room. If you feel your space needs a bit of a boost try pairing your striped sofa with a metallic leather pouf sculptural metal coffee table wire chair or gleaming silver pendant lamp.

This is a terrific palette for an office or a kid's or teen's bedroom. The grays have a soothing vibe but the heart‐racing red injects some energy into the space.

These elegant window dressings have become the perfect solution for metropolitan homeowners who don't want sheer curtains but aren't keen on passersby snooping either. Here their crisp clean lines and white color add to the room's bright breezy feel. The other plus of course is undeniable curb appeal.

If you have a truly massive brick fireplace and you are not fond of the color consider giving it a gentle whitewash to lighten the hue. This can be a good compromise for those who do not want to paint their brick as it allows some of the texture and color to show through. You can water down the whitewash even more than was done here to very subtly tone down the color of your brick fireplace.

The architectural lines of the tripod floor lamp have made it a living room staple in recent years and it looks set to stick around. As well as adding atmospheric pools of light these cool pieces make a statement in their own right. Place one at either end of a sofa as here for oomph. If you don't fancy neutral lampshades like the ones here swap them for colorful ones to energize your scheme.
