1 A Cozy Dining Room

A post shared by Ashley (@biggerthanthethreeofus) on

Nothing warms up a room quicker than plaid wallpaper. We love how the gold accents on the light fixture add just a touch of glam to the rustic room.

2 A Pretty-in-Pink Office

A post shared by Melissa George (@polishedhabitat) on

Try not to be struck by inspiration in this pink palace of an office. The white walls help make the colorful room feel big, spacious, and the ultimate productive retreat.

3 A Playful Kitchen

A post shared by Tim Lam (@designmaze_tim) on

Pops of color in the form of wall art and color-blocked rugs keep this kitchen from feeling too traditional. Even better: The accessories can be swapped in and out for a super easy refresh.

4 A Statement-Making Bedroom

A post shared by Jennifer ✨ Decor Gold Designs (@decorgold) on

This designer reveals how you can incorporate your favorite wallpaper (even if it's super busy) in your bedroom, but still keep it serene, with a statement wall.

5 A Gem-Toned Living Room

A post shared by Whitney McGregor (@whitneymcgregor) on

This room proves you don't need to play it safe with a neutral sofa. Here, a deep navy blue piece looks stunning against deep green walls.

6 A Vibrant Laundry Room

A post shared by Haneen (@haneens_haven) on

One way to make laundry day more bearable? Give your space a colorful and cheerful makeover, like this blogger did.

7 A Thoughtful Kitchen

A post shared by Vanessa Francis (@decorhappy) on

If you're thinking about adding open shelving to your kitchen, it's important to plan out what's going to sit on it. Here, the kitchen island is painted a deeper shade of this blogger's go-to dinner plates.

8 A Dramatic Bedroom

A post shared by Mollie @designlovesdetail (@designlovesdetail) on

High ceilings ask for a statement-making light fixture and a dramatic bed frame, both of which this blogger clearly knows. But that gorgeous rug keeps all attention at ground level.

9 A Cheerful Work Place

A post shared by House+Love | Brittany Fleming (@housepluslove) on

The combination of gold-spotted walls with gold accent pieces (we see you, lamps and curtain rod) makes this office feel youthful, vibrant, and ready to inspire.

10 A Functional She Shed

A post shared by Charlotte Smith (@atcharlotteshouse) on

What to do with a backyard shed without a purpose? Paint everything white, add a graphic rug, and wait for the inspiration to start flowing.

11 A Feminine Bedroom

A post shared by MALLORY TREECE INTERIORS (@gingerjarstyle) on

This romantic bedroom is clearly all about the headboard. It pops against statement wallpaper thanks to its sheer height and unique shape.

12 A Simple Living Room

A post shared by Amy Carrillo (@amy_loveonsunday) on

Metal furnishings, soft leather, and wood accents only mean one thing: Mid-century modern. This blogger made the most of white walls with the help of show-stealing pieces.

13 A Dream-Come-True Bedroom

A post shared by LessThanPerfect Life of Bliss (@lifeofblissblog) on

This blogger gave her daughter a bedroom made for playing pretend, thanks to a mural backdrop that could be the forest outside of a castle or wherever she may dream up.

14 A Supremely Sweet Bedroom

A post shared by Christine | 📍Toronto Lifestyle (@amidst.the.chaos) on

The pink polka dot bedding and furry pink throw pillows really say it all: This bedroom is all about embracing your girly side and owning it.

15 A Lively Dining Room

A post shared by cc&mike (@ccandmikecreative) on

This blogger knows all it takes is a graphic rug and colorful seat cushions to make an otherwise totally bare room feel full of life.
