13 Decorating Shortcuts to a Cozy, Gorgeous Home
A porch can be a lovely hangout spot way beyond summer. Just be sure its colors feel right no matter the weather. "These dark walls and ceiling provide a cool, shaded refuge in summer and a snug dining room in winter," says Hendricks. Likewise, the sofa's red batik feels lively during hot months, yet inviting when it's cold. "Don't be afraid of mixing decor from all sorts of retailers. I love Restoration Hardware, CB2, and even thrift stories. And The Land of Nod is fun for non-kid things."
Bring the Outside In
Surrounded by windows, this room seems like an extension of nature. To play that up, "take an organic approach to the decor, like an antler chandelier (Hampton Bay, 9; homedepot.com) or a (faux) sheepskin throw," Hendricks suggests. Even adding something as simple as freshly picked flowers and a bowl of fruit helps.
Protect It From the Elements
The wood table is sealed to hold up to moisture, while the bluestone floors won't fade from the sunlight. The same goes for all the textiles. The sofa and upholstered seating are made using sturdy outdoor-friendly materials that dry faster than regular fabrics.
"Make those pieces you already own work for you," says Hendricks, who gave a dated coffee table a fresh update with red lacquer to anchor the other spots of red in the room. You can achieve a similar finish using a glossy enamel spray paint.
"Good design must be practical. You wouldn't want to skimp on a sofa, because you'll use it every day. What you can save on are textiles — you could even repurpose a vintage scarf as a pillow cover!" says Hendricks.
Mix Prints Fearlessly
Here's Hendricks's no-fail formula for pulling it off: Contrast small, medium, and large patterns that share a color scheme — it's that easy. Above, the drapes' tiny floral, both of the rugs' oversize prints (the Navajo motif and the gray stripes), and the in-between-size ikat on the pillows (Lekan pillow, ; robertarollerrabbit.com; Berke Ikat Indigo Pillow, ; thepillowcollection.com) harmonize because they aren't competing for attention.
Okay. Deep breaths. We know the thought of a kitchen this bright and two-toned might be terrifying, but in actuality, it can create a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere. "Painting the paneling green cheers up the room, while the soft, buttery yellow of the walls and window trim mellows out the acidity of the color," explains Hendricks.
Scrimp On a Kitchen Rug
It's going to take a beating anyway. "Besides, it's fun to swap out the rug every now and then, like you would throw pillows on a couch," notes Hendricks. We love indoor-outdoor runners from Dash and Albert (Safavieh handwoven rug, 4 for 8' x 10'; overstock.com; Phoenix Wool Dhurrie rug, from ; westelm.com), or look for inexpensive dhurrie or kilim options on Etsy and eBay.
Keep the Art Simple
A minimalist drawing won't overpower architectural details. (Drawing by Emma Lawrenson, 3; littleprintpress.etsy.com; Gallery Solutions frame, .99 for 11" x 14"; target.com)
Combine Comfort and Style
When guests congregate in the kitchen, the seating oughta be comfy. (Sophia Barstool, 9 for 2; worldmarket.com)
An upholstered headboard offers cushioning that you won't get from a wood or metal frame. Its punch of color creates a pretty focal point, too. Wayfair has a bunch of affordable styles in solids and prints.
Frame Your View
Hendricks's trick for windows will change your outlook: "Paint the sash [the frame that holds the panes of glass] a darker shade than the trim to highlight the view outside."
A totally patterned room can overwhelm. "But covering one wall in a bold design — preferably one you won't be staring at as you try to decompress in bed — will give the room a perfect, subtle kick," says Hendricks.
Layer the Lighting
That's what gives a space a toasty glow, says Hendricks. "We took advantage of this house's tall ceilings by hanging chandeliers that offer ambient light." And mounted sconces cast strong directional light that's ideal for reading in bed.
