I like to keep the decor in my home fairly casual and kid-friendly, but I have to admit to dreaming just a little bit about rooms like this one. I kinda love all that beautiful trim work, the eclectic yet elegant furnishings, and the fun punches of color. This is a beautiful room that manages to look formal without feeling fussy or unapproachable. I’m confident you can get this look for less. Check out the DIY tutorials I found to replicate 5 elements of this room.
