Retro dining room with blue wallpaper

I feel my bedroom is beautiful because it is clean and organized. The best part of it all is that, the different pieces around the bedroom from the wall art to the decorating pieces, are simple, inexpensive and yet they give my bedroom a smart look. Choose furniture that compliments you and your style. Clean cut and simple furniture makes a bedroom a lot nicer, more attractive and smarter. It makes your bedroom furniture look cheap and messy.

Modern dining table

Name: ImmaterialGirlLocation: Pittsburgh, PA. Picture Description: Found on Flickr: not traditionally romantic, but inviting and cozy with a relaxing color palette. A bedroom with a television can't truly be romantic - it's too distracting. A romantic bedroom needn't be frilly, but should be comfortable above all else.

Minimalist dining room

AT,. I purchased some vintage Saarinen Tulip chairs and a Saarinen Tulip table base. I'm going to use the set as a card/games table. I feel glossy white or glossy black are a bit too mod. Would Chinese lacquer red be too much? Also this year, Knoll is making them in platinum. I was also thinking about painting them bronze or pewter. I'm thinking about making a slate top for the base.... Any ideas? We're actually kind of traditionalists when it comes to Tulip chairs and tables, so we're going to ask readers what they think.

COLOR INSPIRATION: I fell in love with the turquoise reproduction antique low sideboard that I found at a warehouse sale. The subtle but strong color was so unusual and striking against all the other traditional browns. GO TO SHILPA'S ENTRY PAGE AND ADD IT TO YOUR FAVORITES.

I designed a little cocktail/side table for myself and realized it's awfully cute and clever and maybe there is a way I can get it on the market. I'm going to make at least a few of them to sell myself. Contact Jim at jimcollins(at)pacbell(dot)net with any questions.

Soft colors dining room

The bathrooms in our new bungalow were last tended to in the sixties, we think. The wallpapers in each cover every inch of wall that isn't otherwise tiled or wood paneled, including the ceiling! We are kind of loving all of this - and are in no rush to tear any of it down. What do you think? Keep some or all of the vintage wallpaper? Our favorite is the fish in the half bath.

Scandinavian design dining room

After falling in love with the daring drama of black and white striped hallways, we've been on the look out for other petite places that could handle a big dose of the classic color combo. Even though we usually like bold bathrooms, we can't decide whether these high impact small baths would wake us up in the morning or make us want to dizzily crawl back into bed.... This was a DIY project from a Domino reader. The contrasting silhouettes caught our attention immediately, but made us wonder if we could live with it day to day. The creators of this tiny bath did not let the size factor cramp their court jester vision. We LOVE the tub, but the word's still out on the stripes.... The large sprawling floral pattern and the balance of white space opens up the room more than smaller patterned the previous black and white baths. There is a lot going on here with the busy black and white toile, the soapstone vanity, and show-stopper mirror.

About two years ago, we were dealing with the renovation of both bathrooms in our house. What got us most excited about the project? The Fixtures n' Faucets showrooms in San Mateo and Redwood City. With such good service and selection, it's no wonder this place has been serving the Peninsula for over 25 years. The store carries bathroom and kitchen products - from manufacturers such as Dornbracht, Hansgrohe, Duravit, Porcher, Toto and Vitraform. If you're planning a remodel, it may be worth considering a trip down to Fixtures n' Faucets. Even if you don't place an order, you'll likely get some great inspiration from the showrooms.

Dramatic dark dining room

Q: Hi folks! I need some advice on this decorating dilemma at a small town house in Brazil. The living room is narrow and I don't have a full wall where I can hang some artwork. We also have this empty space under the stairs, so any ideas would be very much appreciated. I love Scandinavian style and also organic and creative spaces, but I am lost on how to make my living room look decorated! The lounge unfortunately does not fit right in front of the TV. There are two doors, as you can see: one is the front door and the other one is a small restroom. Editor: Leave your suggestions for Paula in the comments - thanks! Got a question?
