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.
Watch out for splinters and nails. You'll need to make sure the wood is properly sanded so splinters won't be an issue. When using wood collected from a demolition make sure to carefully remove any old nails. The pieces will need to be planed and cut to the desired shapes and sizes also. Unless you have the right tools and machines this prep work should be done by a professional finish carpenter.
For those who prefer light neutral walls but are on the hunt for an alternative to white beige or gray think about going with a pale green or soft yellow as your main neutral. If the hue has a bit of gray or brown it will work as a neutral. Then add a small hit of bold yellow to really spice up the space.
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.
Light it up with neon. A room saturated in charcoal – from the walls to the paintwork – makes a gorgeous backdrop for neon colors. This electric‐pink table along with the bright yellow artwork pops and helps to define the room which could have been a bit of a black hole without such an energizing color. A couple of pieces are enough though so the dramatic effect of the charcoal isn't lost.
Rethink the antlers. The form is widely available in resin or ceramic versions these days. Jason Miller designed this striking ceramic sconce. Feather wallpaper adds a Native American element in unexpected colors.
Achieving the right proportion of accent wall to other wall space is crucial. Here wood‐paneled walls go beyond just an accent but work beautifully thanks to a high ceiling and a neutral palette.
Mix in some monochrome. This dark hall dances on the edge of overwhelming but the monochromatic geometric pattern white marble and gleaming gold cupboard handles have turned the potentially dark tunnel into an enchanting corridor.
