Before & After: A Shared Parisian Bedroom Gets a Sophisticated Makeover

The little house bed was a DIY project and the prevalence of pink was offset by the white walls and sunlight. With the youngest sister out of a crib, it was time to redesign and, just their luck, their aunt is super style savvy and loves to take on decorating projects. With paint, wallpaper and several re-imagined thrift store purchases, she turned their new room into a soft, elegant haven. Their aunt, Nadia, introduced a minty green as a complimentary color, using it in a floral wallpaper and painted walls. She found similar, but not matching peacock headboards and painted them pink and added lovely little feminine touches around the room. Dogs 101 - Weimaraners. Chantale Morin.

Revolving Kitchen And Hanging Bed In Stunning 600 Sq. Foot Recycled Cabin

Although interior design events in Latin America are always full of huge museum rooms thought for impossible houses, it's good to see the trend of small spaces popping up in places like Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo.
