Here Holly has given a drop-leaf table a new purpose. It serves as a graceful bedside table.
On the other side of the bed, this charming dresser serves as the other bedside table.
Clark found the stunning bookshelves for $20 each on Craigslist. A few coats of paint transformed them, and they add a great storage solution that almost looks built-in.
The dresser in her office was found for just $40 at a thrift store, and Clark painted it in a brilliant green for an extra pop of color. "The green made that piece come alive," she says. "It became the centerpiece of the room
piece of art for her living room. Instead of cutting her extra paint chips into triangles as Heather did, Erin used a big paper puncher to punch out hundreds of dime-sized dots. She arranged them in a scalloping pattern on a red wood panel, and glued them down with Mod Podge.

Some of us like a uniformly designed area before we begin our pinning. I love the glam-rustic charm of this workspace. The white sheepskin seat cover and ceramic trophy head relate to the leopard-print fabric used to cover the white-framed cork board.

Populate your space with patterns. Different patterns are a huge part of a successfully chic space, and they're simple to incorporate. Liven up your couch with a variety of throw pillows or toss down a rug with a colorful graphic. Displaying coffee table books with bright covers is another way to easily pull in pattern variety
Use restrained pops of color. A clean, light space is restful, and pops of hot pink via the plaid throw and vase full of blooms add that extra Valentine's touch.
Eclecticism wears its lack of pedigree proudly and draws its energy from contrast. The trick is to find enough common ground to make a space gel. The dining area shown here weaves together a narrow palette and subtle shine, from the table to the frames to the chandelier. No two chairs match, but all of them have strong silhouettes and roughly the same proportions.
