A blue velvet sofa provides a pop of color against the backdrop of the primarily white open-plan kitchen. Leather throw pillows echo the look of the barstools at the kitchen island counter, tying the design of the two rooms together.
This beautifully bright kitchen features a soft accent color with the powder blue base of the large island. The barstools showcase a natural wood seat, contrasting the white painted wood cabinets surrounding the room. Natural light bounces off stainless steel appliances and the polished surfaces for a bright look through the room.
To maintain the beachy feel throughout the home, designers used muted blues and greens that can be found in the nature surrounding the home. In the kitchen, these colors were added to the backsplash and the barstools so as to add color without overwhelming the space. White cabinetry and a custom, curved peninsula keeps the space feeling light and open, while natural light contributes to the warm, bright feel.
Stainless steel countertops and appliances make a crisp, industrial contrast against the rich wood finish of the cabinets in this contemporary kitchen. A hint of cool color is introduced with the pale blue backsplash.
A vertical subway tile backsplash creates a less conventional movement in the room to elongate the look and add a touch of soft blue color to the room. A modern bubble chandelier is an airy light accessory over the kitchen island. The diamond shaped island features a bold marble countertop and barstools lined up for an eat-in set up.
The mostly neutral, modern furnishings and hardwood floors of this living room are punched up by the orange rug, blue coffee table and assorted throw pillows. The exposed brick wall and fireplace make for a great focal wall and interesting place for the television.
To create a visual distinction between the living room and the dining room despite the open concept floor plan of the home, designers painted the living room a sandy neutral color and the dining room a lovely blue that is the reflection of the color of the ocean. Both colors reflect the beauty of the sea.
A black dining table and dark-stained chairs provide stark contrast to the room's tropical blue and pale yellow color palette. The Grecian key pattern detail in the white credenza mimics the pattern in the dining chair seats, and a starburst mirror provides a touch of glamour to the sleek space. A large picture window allows plenty of natural light and supplies incredible city views.
This modern kitchen detail features a copper-front bar with blue upholstered mid-century modern barstools, black and white hand painted columns, black and white patterned wall tile, and hardwood floors.
