Ideas to Steal From This Week's Tours: Go Bold with Unexpected Elements

January 6-10, 2014

Purple accent wall panels, colorful nursery decor with retail window display origins, coordinating cats, polka dots and more. This week's house, nursery and work space tours featured a stunning array of bold decor ideas you can borrow for your own space!

Don't you love the colorful wall treatment found in Olive's Creatively Colorful Abode Nursery Tour? The only thing better than how gorgeous it is, is where the homeowners acquired it: It's a re-purposed window display from a popular retail store!

A bold statement is made along a brick stairwell wall in Natural Curiosities' Endlessly Inventive Offices.

A deep, rich crimson red Boretti stove is a pop of color in a warm and natural kitchen in Elena & Judd's Cozy Amsterdam Apartment.

A glass interior door peeks into the nursery of Heather & Eric's Cozy Victoria Cottage.

The fabric polka dots attached to a wall in Make*Do*Mend + Drygoods Design's work space are cheery and fun!

A soft cat complements nicely with the collection of kilim rugs and pillows in Lauren and Chad's Vintage Comfort (totally not an actual idea but too cute to leave out).
