Try Neutral Tones with Varying Textures for a Serene Atmosphere

#MFDesignTip : Use a neutral tone in varying textures and patterns to create a serene atmosphere in any room 😌. In this case, we used the textured sisal wallpaper, geometric window treatments and silky rug all in the same shade of grey accented with white.

Exterior Design

Since we’ve shown so much love for the interior of this home, we thought it was about time to highlight the exterior as well! We transformed the roofline by adding a large picture window over the front entry and adding cedar shakes on the roof. Swipe to see how white paint and copper accents made this home go from so-so to spectacular!

#MFDesignTip : We used copper accents on the chimney cap, roof and gutters to add warmth and color to an otherwise white facade. We even added a touch of copper in the entry light fixtures.

Try Mixing Old and New Furniture When Designing a Room!

As posted to our Instagram @margaliandflynndesigns …

#MFDesignTip : You don’t always have to buy all new when designing a new room. In this space we loved the shape of the antique sitting chairs and paired them with a transitional animal print that brought them back to life! Mixing old and new will add an eclectic balance to a space and keep the family memories alive 🏠👨‍👩‍👧‍👦.

Try Mixing Patterns and Textures to Create Interest!

As posted to our Instagram @margaliandflynndesigns …


#MFDesignTip : In this room we started with a custom geometric rug with a raised pattern, mixed it with the shiny circular geometric fabric from the window treatments and a nubby woven on the sectional. The interplay of all these patterns and textures creates the interest needed to work in a neutral color scheme.

Don’t Be Afraid to Take on Tough Construction Projects to Achieve Your Dream Home!

#MFDesignTip : Don’t be afraid to take on a construction project 🔨. You can often get a reduced purchase price on a home that does not have a good curb appeal. If it has potential you can turn it into the home of your dreams and a good investment at the same time!

Use Colors and Patterns that Can Transition with a Growing Child!

#MFDesignTip : When designing a nursery you want your selections to last well through the toddler years and into the high school years. Use colors and patterns that will transition well when it’s time to transition from a crib to a bed 👶🏻.

Lighting Can Be the Focal Point in Any Room ✨

As posted to our Instagram @margaliandflynndesigns …

#MFDesignTip : Lighting can be the focal point in any room ✨. In this case the built in cabinetry and the ship lap act as a neutral backdrop to the large floral pendant in the dressing room and the floral flush mount and sconces in the bedroom 🌸.

Don’t Be Afraid of Bold Patterning in Small Rooms!

Strathmore-Vanderbilt Bathroom by Margali and Flynn Designs

As posted to our Instagram @margaliandflynndesigns …

#MFDesignTip : Don’t be afraid to use a bold pattern in a small scale room. By adding the applied box panel under the chair rail and painting it white we are breaking up the visual of an entire wall of print. It also breaks the geometric floor from the floral paper. Always think about how to balance all the elements in a room!

Transform a Small Closet into the Perfect Home Office!

As posted to our Instagram @margaliandflynndesigns …

#MFDesignTip : Small closets can be an ideal spot for a home office. Add some cork board and cabinetry and you have a great place to keep all your every day paperwork 📑 out of sight and tucked away behind a closed door.

Use Darker Tones in a Home Theatre to Reduce Light and Absorb Sound

As posted to our Instagram @margaliandflynndesigns …

#MFDesignTip : Try to use darker tones in a theatre. The dark wallpaper on the walls and ceiling reduce light and absorb sound. We accented this room with movie posters to add visual interest when the screen is not in use 📺.
