This bedroom exudes a soothing elegance with a classic blue-and-chocolate-brown color palette. The walls, bedding, pillows, lampshades and a bench at the foot of the bed carry both colors, creating a seamless feel throughout this space.
This elegant but somewhat rustic great room, designed by Susan Brunstrum, sends a blue and brown color palette to new heights in style. The walls are neutral, which allow the bold patterns of cobalt blue to take center stage in the furnishings of the room. The multi-colored painting is also a splendid addition above the fireplace mantel.
Designer Mary DeWalt's use of a blue and brown color palette for this home continued into the master bathroom, where she faced his and hers dark wood vanities with turquoise mosaic tile as the backsplash. The bathroom's focal point is the grand bathtub that forms its own private nook at the far end of the room.
Staying within a blue, white and brown color palette unifies this tableau that contains an elegant console table, several pieces of artwork and candlesticks. The table also offers convenient hidden storage.
This contemporary bedroom has a blue and choolate brown color scheme with textured walls and mirrored nightstands. The blue drapes and the leather upholstered headboard add a sense of kuxury to the room
Dark wood furniture create a warm and classic feel in this transitional bedroom, while light blue accents are airy and an unexpected touch. A small, crystal chandelier hangs in the middle of the room, and a large contemporary mirror is placed above the bed, further blending the line between traditional and contemporary design.
The fireplace takes center stage in this living room with beautiful, neutral tones. Assorted throw pillows add comfort to the angular, contemporary sofas, and the streamlined coffee table almost seems to disappear on the similarly colored area rug. Lamps and art above matching cabinets bring a symmetry to the room, making it feel organized and appealing to the eye.
A light palette of blues and sands creates a calm, relaxing atmosphere in this nursery designed on season four of HGTV Design Star. Contestant Dan also adds elements like a daybed and entertainment area so the room can grow with the baby.
In this contemporary living room, white walls serve as a canvas for pink pillows and a light blue blanket. When paired with a golden floor lamp and other metallic accents, these items achieve a color scheme reminiscent of a sunset on the beach.
A restful color scheme doesn't have to be a snooze. Focusing on two main colors — taupe and blue — in various hues makes this contemporary bedroom comfortable and inviting. Sprinkling a variety of blues throughout keeps it interesting, while the plants and decorative pillows add softness and life.
Susan Brunstrum designed this lovely dining room and kitchen combination in shades of cobalt blue and white to complement the dark cabinets and woodwork of the home. This color palette bathes the room in a rich yet fresh aesthetic and supports the Mountain Modern theme she envisioned for her client's Park City, Utah second home.
Warm yellow walls bring sunshine into this comfortable living room. A pair of blue armchairs combine with a soft yellow sofa and tufted leather ottoman, creating a cozy seating area that has full views of the TV and contemporary raised fireplace.
Keeping the space light and bright, Venetian plaster on the walls and a tongue and groove ceiling give this room the perfect texture and coastal feel. Pale blue accents found in the bed linens and throw pillows reflect the ocean hues surrounding the home, while a dark wood canopy bed and upholstered bench add beautiful contrast to the soft colors.
