Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the Purks' baby on the way. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim.
Since the "big boy" bedroom and nursery were adjoining, designers had to create spaces that would complement each other as well as be sophisticated enough to grow with the boys as they get older, so they created a "dipped" effect that made for the perfect backdrop for the Astronaut Big Boy Room and the Whale of a Tale Nursery.
This contemporary kitchen features blue cabinetry complimented with a blue and yellow tile backsplash. A dark countertop breaks up the blue color and contrasts well with the upper white cabinets. A pendant light hangs above the deep sink to pair artificial light with the natural light from the window.
The sea blue tiled floor is designed to look like the ocean floor and picks up the Noah's Ark theme from the little boy's bedroom. The pinstripe walls add pattern to the classic space, while the white vanity boasts open shelving for the easy retrieval of towels and toys.
Painted in light blue, this spa-like bathroom with white cabinets boasts plenty of shelving and ample vanity space for storage. Conveniently-placed towel racks and a variety of mirrors make this space a pleasure for washing.
Bright Blue Modern Foyer From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson gave this foyer a chic modern makeover with new gray stone floors, a sleek chandelier and bright blue wall paint. On display is a piece of original artwork, depicting graffiti from the walls of the Paris Metro, that matches the newly renovated kitchen beyond.
This formerly dark and uninteresting kitchen gets a whole new life with beautiful blue cabinetry, delicate pendants and roman shades with a subtle graphic print. The backsplash is the star of the room: gray tiles in a chevron stripe.
A dark blue ceiling pairs with blue curtains in this bedroom to create the illusion of endless open sky. In a sophisticated contrast, the rest of the room is done in whites and neutrals with metallic accents.
