How to Design in an A-frame Home

thumbnail

I love the challenge of interior design. If there’s something that makes the room less than optimal, I like to take that and run with it. I’d much prefer an obstacle in my way versus a large square box. I think it makes it more interesting. A-frame homes are much the same way—challenging. They can be gorgeous and charming, but also hard to design for and make efficient use of space. Here are some of my tricks for designing for a-frame interiors.

Beige has a reputation for being boring. In fact, my apartment has a major dose of the borings with every wall painted beige as well as beige carpeting.

Amazing Bathtubs

Who would want a boring bathtub when you can have a uniquely awesome bathtub?! In my current home, we have a tiny, commercial bathtub that barely holds my 9-year-old child. You can only imagine the struggle an adult has using it. These days we are seeing everything from stainless steel basins to infinity tubs.

White Wood Paneled Walls

White Wood Paneled Walls

Interior Design has come along way since the 70’s and 80’s. Some of the worst design happened in those years. But one thing that is back, and even better and cooler, is wood paneling.

Whether it’s left in its original wood tone or painted a bright color, wood paneling can warm up a space just as quickly as a fuzzy throw blanket. Right now, I am loving white painted paneling.

Books atop a shelf add in texture and variation, which help keep a space from looking one-dimensional. Much like Disney’s Beast who has an opulent collection and space, there are a number of gorgeous libraries that are perfect inspiration in creating a home library. But sometimes we can’t afford that dream library or don’t have the space to do so. Here’s how to create a dream library in any circumstance.
