Creative Lighting

Space-saving bedside lights are ideal for this small bedroom. The design adds an Arts and Crafts effect to the space.

Playing With Color

By keeping the bedding and wall colors neutral, designer Ashley DeLapp was able to have fun with the black and yellow accent pieces, seen in the pillows, side table and window treatments.

Playful Patterns

Funky black-and-white coffee mugs and accessories provide a bit of texture to the vibrant yellow side table, while a vase of flowers gives the space a feminine touch.

Modern Headboards

Shiny black wicker headboards add a modern, masculine touch to the twin beds.

Funky Window Treatments

DeLapp chose two pattern variations for the window treatments, lending to the eclectic vibe of the room.

Perfectly Eclectic

In order to maximize space, DeLapp chose twin beds for the space. The room gets touches of texture from the wall trim, bed pillows and area rug. The final look of the room is eclectic and contemporary thanks to the sharp black, white and yellow color palette.
