Designer Kari McIntosh Dawdy added two small barrel armchairs in turquoise blue velvet to accompany this shades of blue family room.

A bright blue and turquoise rug adds a colorful accent to this home office and compliments the pastel blue walls. An industrial desk features metal panels. Black stools match the black desk framing and metal pendant lights. A mix of black drawers, natural wood cabinets and a contemporary armoire supply plenty of storage for an organized finish.
