This lime green and white trellis pattern on the wall was made with a stencil. "I wanted to use wallpaper in this room, but after I realized that it was going to be $150 just to complete one wall in the style I liked, I started thinking about other options," says Bonham-Carter. She picked a trellis pattern that channeled design elements she and her husband had admired on a visit to Morocco.
The wall complements the house's overall palette of blues, turquoises and grays, and although the stenciling made Bonham-Carter's hands cramp, she says the final result and money saved were worth it.

Bonham-Carter and her husband's solution to a drab and dull kitchen: a cosmetic update of black and white vinyl tiles. "The vinyl tiles are obviously not the most glamorous of flooring options, but since we're saving for a big kitchen remodel, they are a good temporary solution and add a fun diner look to our kitchen," she says.
Bonham-Carter describes her bungalow as having a fun and quirky charm. "I have seen some houses that have choppy little rooms, but ours is pretty open and feels like a cozy place for family and friends to congregate," she says.
