The vibrant green and blue wall art adds a pop of color to the luxe modern bathroom. All of these elements contribute ease of use and life style in order for the client to successfully age in place.
Topping a kitchen island is a glass cylinder filled with red and green apples. It can be used at different times of the year or as a natural arrangement for the holidays. The centerpiece pairs beautifully with a blue and white toile tablecloth, which adds texture and warmth to the display.
If you find beige and tan too neutral or impersonal for your own home, muted grays may be a much better fit. For versatility, choose grays with hints of blue or white that will pair well with orange or green like the orange chairs used in this room. The circular table grounds the airy design, and the chairs compliment stripes in the floor rug.

A candle chandelier hangs above a painted sage green double vanity, which is contrasted by the dark blue color accents used to trim the doorways.

It comes in red, green or blue.
The living room needed fun, durable seating to accommodate the family's teenage son and his friends, so designers added a tough, blue sectional and faux green leather ottoman that doubles as a coffee table. To provide display shelves, shelves were built into the half-wall separating the kitchen and dining room from the living room. These shelves are made of dark, rich wood, which, along with the white walls, ties this space into the rest of this family's 1920s Spanish home.
Vintage styles are making a big comeback with the help of companies like Big Chill, which developed its Retro appliance line as a fresh take on the hot colors of the 1950s, according to co-founder Orion Creamer. You can buy Retro fridges, ranges, microwaves and dishwashers in eight standard colors: Beach Blue, Pink Lemonade, Cherry Red, Buttercup Yellow, Jadite Green, Black, White and Orange. (Custom colors are available, too.)
A full bar features built-in wine storage and ample seating for family and friends. The lower level of this three-story beachfront home serves as a game and media room, bar, exercise room, full bathroom and laundry room.

Tans, browns, deep greens and blues combine with textures such as woven reeds, metallic, leather and driftwood to bring nature indoors. A feature wall behind the bar was inspired by the client's travels.
To give the open space just off the entry a purpose, yet keep the center of the area open for traffic flow in and out of this apartment, two pairs of ready-made bookshelves purchased from an office supply store were placed back-to-back to act as room dividers. On one side, a private office is separated from the formal dining space and family room on the other side. The apartment's walls were painted peacock blue, which helps the walls recede so that accents of white and apple green stand out.
One of my favorite people and repeat clients came to me with a brimming-with-potential-blank-slate of a room that she wanted to use as her creative workspace. We wanted a feature wall inspired by graffiti. After some brainstorming, my client decided that the focal points of the mural would be a singular fist and kente cloth, signifying power, empowerment, and culture. To set off the mural, we painted the adjacent walls a dark slate gray. Color cues were taken from the mural and carry its energy around the room. We worked with Joybird to create a custom, rich, Kelly Green couch to provide her with a space to read and rest. The teal rug compliments the green and blue tones in the mural and brings the color into the center of the space.
Also known as silver Siberian bugloss, ‘Jack Frost’ brunnera (B. macrophylla) steals the show in any shade garden.

Deer-, rabbit- and slug-resistant plants grow 12 inches tall and up to 18 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 4-9.
HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother's Joe turned the entire wall into a built-in entertainment unit with open shelving and TV storage. The judges, however, felt the work looked unfinished. "There's so many things in this house where they didn't do that last five percent of the work, and it makes it feel shoddy," says Drew. The renovated living room also features a green tufted ottoman, coastal inspired decorative coral, and a blue and brown area rug.
Enjoy all the great attributes of viburnum in a neat little package. Lil’ Ditty grows 1 to 2 feet tall and wide, making it a great choice for perennial borders, containers or edging water gardens. Fragrant white late spring blooms—a big hit with pollinators—fade to form berries, which shift color as they ripen from green to pink to red to blue to black. Hardy in Zones 3-8. Botanical name: Viburnum cassinoides
