Repurpose horseshoes in an artistic way. On this animal rescue ranch kicking off dusty boots and hanging one's hat upon opening the door are everyday occurrences. Designer Fellman (see the second photo) composed horseshoes found on the property and then had a metalworker solder them together.
Bring depth to a neutral room. If color isn't your thing create interest with texture. In this room a range of items with texture from the natural wood to the touch‐me throw and rug add plenty of interest.
A touch of luxury. Leather is synonymous with luxury. Here the touchable headboard doubles as a room divider and is offset with white cast‐concrete light fittings to keep the look contemporary and interesting.
I can't get enough of this fun and fantastic green‐tinged yellow – I've used similar shades of it in small doses all over my new house. It looks supermodern set against shades of gray and pure white. Keep in mind that if you use a vibrant hue in the back of a shelf or niche you'll want to keep any items stored there neat and tidy as everyone's eye will be immediately drawn to that area. Also when you have a lot of cool gray in a space think about including some warm elements such as a wood floor or wood furniture to help it feel warm and inviting.
Look up. Forget flat ceilings. Here the texture creates interest and opens up the room. You can create a ceiling with character using painted textured wallpaper or plaster molding or by exposing wooden beams.
Deconstruct the log cabin. Kiln‐dried cut firewood insulates this unique home in Montana while native grasses cover the roof. Of course you don't have to go to the extreme of using a facade completely made of logs. Log details can add a rustic modern touch in smaller doses. A custom‐cut log design adds warm Western style to this bathroom ceiling.
Shades of purple are thought to have a calming effect so they are a smart choice for a bedroom. Mix small hits of pinks and purples with larger swaths of warm whites for a pretty soft and soothing sleeping space.
Lights. If you have a well‐placed window in your kitchen but the angle does not invite a lot of light it could be a perfect place to add a pendant light. The fixture will help illuminate the counter and will give the feeling of a natural radiance emanating from the outdoors.
