Two Muted-Tone, Exposed-Brick Pads for Young Families

Young families and contemporary interiors are not always the best of friends. Kids mean playtime – cooking, drawing, running around – and invariably, a mess that just won’t fit with your new white couch. Avoid crayoned white walls and large stains on your shagpile by using easy-to-clean, industrial materials - like these two family homes in the Ukraine and Belarus. Dreamy mushrooms and muted beiges meet black and white, exposed brick and subtle pastels in spaces that look luxurious – and remain that way. A blue couch here, and teal bathroom tiling there, allow interesting colour combinations that are near impossible to ruin. Flick through for two family-friendly designs to inspire your interior.
