Blanca, a jewelry designer and Aniket, an architect, live in a 110-year-old home in Brooklyn, New York. They redecorated on a shoestring budget to make it feel big and airy-which is a bonus since they're expecting twins this spring!

"When we moved in, the rooms were painted funky colors-bright reds, canary yellow," says Blanca. So the couple rolled up their sleeves and painted everything white, which made the space feel "calm and spacious," she says.

Faux sheepskin throw, $40 and sofa, $500 from IKEA. Coffee table, $400 from Blu Dot.
