Malene’s home radiates culture which is a central feature of her product designs-especially her amazing line of rugs. In the living room, the rug completes the conceptual connection between the blue-stained floors and these figures with a pattern that evokes the look and feel of foaming seas. Additional patterns on the pillows and art completes the vignette, bringing home elements of island life as well as African culture.
The playroom has a decidedly sassy feel with bold graphic patterns and wide horizontal stripes sweeping across the back wall. A thin dark blue stripe outlines the larger turquoise ones, an unusual move that ties in with the denim blue sectional.
As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, a wall was removed between this kitchen and dining room, creating an airy, open-concept feel. Cool blue walls with white trim lend a modern vibe to the dining room, while the refinished wood floors preserve its original charm. An elegant chandelier casts soft light over the distressed wood table and chairs.
Need a clever way to have toys around but also keep them out of sight when guest are around? Try this diy project. Built with basic pine wood this ottoman was given a fashionable cushion top with chain hinges so the inside could be used as toy storage.
A large credenza provides additional storage in this living room and sits neatly under an abstract painting by the homeowner's brother. The colors of the painting flow seamlessly with the deep blue hue of the walls.
Stylish Living Room with Durable Furniture and Lots of Texture
In the living room, color and texture come together to create an elegant, stylish, yet still functional space. The blue wall that anchors the space is covered in textured wallpaper, adding interest in the space, while linen fabric on the sofa and chair covers create casual, durable seating options. The oriental rug adds complementary color to the living room, tying the space together and making it feel brighter, while the new mantel and artwork make the space sophisticated and chic.
Menswear patterns give dapper style to this friendly family room: a blue-gray check on the walls, a subtle chevron stripe for the rug. The large leather sectional and pool table keep everyone comfy and entertained.
This dining room features an open floor plan with brilliant blue walls and white built-ins. Metal pendant lamps hang over an industrial style table. Leather dining chairs and a wooden bench provide seating.
Modern Home Office With Built-in Cabinetry and Shag Rug

This light and bright living room features a brown velvet sectional and red circular positioned in front of a blue accent wall. A black arc lamp illuminates the space, while the fireplace has a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf on either side. Hardwood floors and a potted tree provide finishing touches.
Elegant Small Blue Living Room With White Built in Book Shelves and Fireplace
This small blue living space has some lovely architectural detail which stands and and can be enjoyed more now having painted it white. The cool colors make the room feel more comfortable, while adding white slipcovered chairs and natural wall decor are finishing touches.
Color is the first thing that stands out about this home. Malene loves them all, especially blue, and she's not shy about demonstrating her considerable skill with layering the color into a room. Blue is one of the quintessential colors of the islands. From the sky to the sea, it frames everything that happens in between. Malene brought that feeling to her space including the stained floorboards that define the first floor of the home.
