The Stansell family dining room is minimal in design but dramatic in hue. The gorgeous green is definitely a showstopper trimmed out in white and a perfect complement to the tulip-base white dining table. This room is an example of the fun you can have mixing furniture styles. The wood-stained chairs are more traditional, but they sit comfortably at a modern table, with an edgy chandelier and surrounded by contemporary art. The color green is associated with growth, harmony and safety: I’d say that’s a perfect fit for Stansell family dinners.
This fresh and fruity palette of green and orange is the perfect color combination for a small and narrow bathroom. The colors ensure that the room is not washed out or too bright. With a pedestal vanity, an alternate storage solution is essential if you want the kids to keep the bathroom squeaky clean.
The green paisley wallpaper in this bathroom sets the color scheme for the room. Two small lamp fixtures surround the oval mirror topped with green cloth, plaid lamp shapes to shed light on the glass tile stripe, mirror boxes and green towels sitting on the white tile sink below.
An elegant dining room table forms the centerpiece of this lively green dining room. Bright, patterned draperies on iron medallions contrasted with an enameled walnut credenza and gilded buffet lamps celebrate a creative style.
Creating welcoming warmth within the flowing spaces of open-layout floorplans is important—and sometimes difficult to achieve. Designer Brett Mickan turned to color to do the trick in this Sydney, Australia kitchen. “The deep green hue makes the walls recede so the pieces within the room stand out. And, because the room looks out through a series of large glass doors towards the garden, I used a deep green tone with a grey base to create a color connection to the garden and focus the view out the windows,” he says.
