Jennifer Ryan redecorated a third-floor open space in her Bellingham house in 2014 to provide extra beds for visitors. The space had suffered a fire years ago and only had bare plasterboard before she fixed it up. She chose seafoam green paint for the walls and ceiling, and barn-red paint with cow-print carpet squares for the floor. The blackboard surface by the window lets visitors write their names and other messages. “I wanted this area upstairs to be fun and whimsical,” Ryan says.
