We've recently seen a trend towards grey in the nursery. Here's a beautiful example of these 'Adult' colors used to perfection in a shared nursery. We love the juxtaposition of traditional and modern, rustic and sleek, childlike and sophisticated. For more incredible photos of this black and grey nursery, read this post on Design Sponge.

We've seen LEGO on walls and LEGO used as a head board. So why not the kitchen? Design duo Munchausen took a simple IKEA kitchen island and spent a week creating this unique kitchen centerpiece. IKEA plus LEGO equals Scandinavian design, through and through. The Cool Hunter posted about their ambitious and bold kitchen project here.

Q: I just moved into a great apartment in the East Village. Even though my bedroom is small, it has nice wood floors, a brick wall and an amazing view of the Empire State Building. Sometime soon I need to paint the walls, except for the brick, but I don't want white walls. All of the pictures that I see online with a brick accent wall have white walls! I might paint them a light blue or a light gray, like Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore. Editor: Leave your suggestions for Kimberly in the comments - thanks! Have a question for our community?

Steve Melendrez and Rebecca Cox of Living Room invited us yesterday for a sneak peek of their showroom in preparation of their two year anniversary sale.... The showroom, formerly the offices of Eric Garcetti, is tastefully appointed with an eclectic and stylish mix of original artwork, ethnic decorative arts, in-house custom pieces, and modern design notables from the likes of Jonathan Adler and John Robshaw. The Living Room's showroom almost feels like a miniature east-of-the-101 H.D. Buttercup, each corner showcased in different decor styles. Starting on February 8th-11th, Living Room is having a special 2 year anniversary sale, with everything 20% off all special orders, custom orders and in-stock goods/floor items, including furniture, lighting and accessories. They even promised to have some adult beverages and tasty snacks to nosh on while you shop.

Name: Renee Location: Saint Paul, MN Division: Cool Inspiration for my palette: This space is a large family room which sees a lot of activity and use both by children and adults. We wanted to incorporate some fun colors into the room for the kids while still retaining a space which can be enjoyed by adults. I have always wanted to use turquoise and decided that doing an accent wall would be a fun way to do this without overwhelming the space too much. The chalkboard wall allows for a fun rotation of artwork and messages.
