Jo Saltz: OK, let’s jump in. When a room is feeling bare and boring, what’s your go-to for making it more fun? Monica Wilcox: Art, art, art—original art. Find an artist to create something individual, unique, one-of-a-kind. Introduce your clients to art, and you will never ever go wrong. Brant McFarlain: I like to arrange furniture in a way that’s not typical. You get architectural plans and it seems to be the same layout all the time, but mine would never look like that. For me it’s more about the placement of things, rather than color. Want to talk? E-mail me at editor@housebeautiful.com. Jean Liu: I’ve had clients completely change the way they felt about a room just because we took the existing pieces of furniture and tweaked the layout of them. Amy Berry: Right.…

Turn the page for tips on how to double up. The More, the Merrier Rather than just putting two queen beds in this guest room, Studio McGee added twin bunks crossing overhead to maximize sleep space. Create a Fort Alice Lane Interiors drew inspiration from a train car for this Provo, Utah, bunk room. Thibaut wallpaper was brought up onto the ceiling, and curtains can be closed at bedtime.…

not all gender-neutrals are beige

Beau Green 2054-20 Benjamin Moore “This shade of green is more ‘British racing car’ than ‘forest.’ It adds depth and visual interest while still feeling fun and cheery, which is what I strive for in a child’s room!” —Starrett Zenko Ringbom NCS S1060-Y90R, Fine Paints of Europe “When a client wanted to transform this room into a happy, bright space for her son and daughter, we decided to go bold with coral! Orange undertones keep it from veering too pink.” —Mia Brous and Kerri Goldfarb of Madre Jungle 19-15, Pratt & Lambert “Less conventional than your typical navy, this striking green plays well with blue, red, gray, black, and even wood tones, making it the perfect accent color for a bedroom that can easily grow with its inhabitant.” —Emily C.

any room can be a playroom

TUCKED DOWNstairs in a San Francisco home, you’ll find the envy of the neighborhood. “The homeowners wanted their kids to have a place to goof off while they have a party upstairs,” explains the designer, Regan Baker. The couple had seen the adventure-themed, tented kids’ room Baker dreamed up for a show house and enlisted her to transform their wine-storage room into something their three kids would love. It’s now known as the Romp Room. “The idea was to engage and activate the space,” says the designer. Wine racks became color-blocked art-supply storage, an unused wall was turned into a climbing wall, and soft, modular furniture was brought in to allow for (gentle) roughhousing. And yet, the space still feels orderly and refined. After all, says Baker, “they want it to be…
