This living room area provides a playful air of visual stimulation; lively punches of tangerine and kelly green merged with varying shades of cobalt and indigo blues. A heavy dose of woven sea grass added to the distinctive maritime air while an assortment of sea shells, blue-and-white pottery and a colorful collection of art came together to create a place of delight in this low-key beach cottage.
In the master bedroom of a California mid-century modern home, designers Diego Monchamp and Ryan Brown of Brown Design Group took a bold approach to the asymmetrical architecture, emphasizing it with the contrasting colors of the walls and ceiling. “We used a spectrum of grays and blues, including a steel-blue wallcovering, throughout the room to make it feel sophisticated and neutral,” says Monchamp. “Wood elements always complement these muted tones.”
Cottage Breakfast Nook With White Banquette and Navy Table
This cottage-style breakfast nook features a Blu Dot Strut dining table in navy lacquer, white chairs from Serena and Lily Tucker, and pillows from Home Goods. The space is surrounded by neutral shiplap walls, and a white banquette provides seating next to the window.
Shaker-style cabinets are installed floor to ceiling to provide much-needed kitchen storage. The lower cabinets are a brilliant navy to contrast with the bright white cabinetry and countertops. The space is grounded by porcelain flooring, a durable and easy-to-clean choice perfect for families with pets.
Woven baskets in this family room are perfectly for stowing away toys or books for quick clean up. For a personal touch, as well as design contrast, a large horse portrait fills the wall behind the sectional.
One end of this cottage kitchen becomes a charming breakfast nook with sunlight pouring in the large windows. The curvy cord of the pendant light over the table is a fun contrast to the room's simple straight lines.
