Roger and Chris' 160-year-old Victorian house has great architectural bones and eclectic decor that make up a style that's personal and unique. Their living room (above) is laid back, with bright color in expected places. Here’s how to get the look in your own house...

1. Glass Test Tube Planters: To get this look, just pick up some glass lab supplies, and vintage stands and then add flowers. Design Sponge wrote a post on how to make a test tube vase. They also give some good tips on arranging and grouping the flowers in lab ware.

2. Planked Walls: This project adds great texture and architectural interest to otherwise plain and flat surfaces. Here’s a tutorial from the House of Smiths.

3. Painted Striped Rug: Hymns and Verses show you the best way to add a rugby stripe to drop cloth to make a DIY rug.
