• Sacramento do-it-yourselfer Ry Turner, editor of the Design Confidential, brings a rockin' vibe to a breakfast nook:

"I have pretty much always been a little bit rock 'n' roll when it comes to my style sensibility. I like things with a bit of an edge to them. This might mean design with high contrast, or neon, perhaps even a little '70s glam or vintage around the edges, and I'm definitely into a bit of that global vibe infused into a space which essentially encompass the edgy rock 'n' roll style. Today I'm sharing some semblance of my design plan for my kitchen nook with you guys. And it's wild, to be sure.

I suppose I feel like if you aren't willing to design with gusto, guts, and a bit of glam, you should just sit on the bench and not even play. After all, it's when your design pushes the boundaries of your comfort zone that you will ultimately love your space best. So here we are, back to the subject at hand, which of course is my rock 'n' roll nook. This might be a little wild and crazy for many of you – heck, probably most of you – but take a page from my book and think about those things you love a ton, but might be a little afraid to do in your space, and then go for it full speed ahead and don't look back. It's exhilarating, and you will be rewarded immensely in the personal accomplishment department."
