Sometimes it can be challenging to see a large home like this and know how to translate the style to a smaller space. If you fall in this category, consider this tip by Down to Earth manager, Madison Lund: 

“Keep things proportional. If you like this look but have a smaller area to work with, consider a lighter shade for your base and add smaller pops of bolder shades. This way you can still get the contrast without overwhelming your room.”

Here's a fresh idea! Turn baskets on their sides and use them as shelving. Large open baskets like this are great in a home gym but would also work well for toys or other bulky items.

Add to the atmosphere of your game room by using actual games in your decorating. Take your playful attire even further with over-sized game pieces.
