We’re all kids at heart. So why can’t we decorate like children? Not to say we should start pinning up posters of teen idols or buying superhero sheets, but we should be able to channel the kind of reckless abandon of a child with a crayon and a coloring book. There are no rules, only color.

This bold Chicago apartment seems to have it down, with three rule-breaking color details that are just rebellious enough to work for anyone, in any space.
First, there are the stairs, with that bright pink racing stripe that zags around each step and shoots straight up the wall of the stair landing.
Then, the same pink shade used to punctuate a space that, I can say this with confidence, really doesn’t normall get a lot of attention.
And finally, a little bit of first-world anarchy that even the goodiest of two shoes should be able to tolerate: One lone bar stool in this pack of four was bought in a different colorway. It’s like an accent nail for your breakfast bar.
What do you think of these ideas? Do-able?
