Bring your love of any type of art you enjoy doing to the top of your ”coffee table”. Place paint brushes in a vase or interesting cup, along with books about your fav artists. Or site your needlepoint wool in a bowl or tray, or include a book about the subject. Don´t forget about the lower shelf of your "coffee table". If using three stacks of decor on the lower shelf change it up and use two stacks of decor above. A tray turns an ottoman into a coffee table. Fill it with fun trinkets of different heights also shapes. Use two trays for a large ottoman.

For example in a grey and white room, try accenting with yellow accessories. For patterns, lean towards stripes, chevron or solids with large geometric shape(s). When selecting furniture, opt for furniture with clean lines and that’s non-themed (steer clear of the race car or sleeping beauty beds) and pair with neutral colored essentials such as lamps and window treatments.

For example, whether it’s a bookshelf, storage cube or wall unit, place baby friendly toys and items on the lower shelves. Your toddler or older child can stand and reach for the basket of Lego.

The exciting part of creating a super fun bedroom for your young brood is accessorizing and customizing design elements to match their budding personalities. Select design elements that make the room feel like it belongs to both of them. Personalize accessories throughout the room such as wall art or coat hooks. Marquee lights with their names or first initial add a pop of energy and excitement to any space. Likewise, subtly add gender specific themes in one or two accessories, but keep them color coordinated. For example when accessorizing with red, try a throw pillow with a red fire engine for him, and a pillow with a red flower or heart for her. Storage that is complementary to the design scheme but specific for each gender (think charcoal for boys and yellow for girls) can also seamlessly pull a room together.

Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child’s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can’t easily touch it.

What you’re left with is sleek, hidden storage when the space is not in use. The shelving on the doors is also a nice touch for some added spice storage. One of the ways to maximize the benefits of added storage is to get multifunctional with your storage space. This fold-out cabinetry makes room for a small microwave. It’s also a wonderful design idea since it allows you to hide the microwave when not in use. If you’re going for a sleek, bright and modern kitchen like the one in the photo, you’ll want to hide as many bulky appliances as possible. It makes for a cleaner aesthetic.

To make the metallic grout pop, aim for a light or muted shade of tile.
