Tineke Triggs designed a room for a young pre-teen artist. Using paint as her inspiration, Triggs splattered the ceiling with color, chose a rug that looks like a watercolor painting and designed a desk to look like dripping paint. Clever storage tip: Triggs affixed mason jars to a piece of wood and hung it over the desk. Photo: Philip Harvey
