Slate blue and black are two colors used in dramatic interiors, but they can also be playful with the right accent color. Add sophistication to your seasonal space with a mix of slate blue, black and fire-engine red. While the colors are bold, they're also timeless and chic.

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 work space. 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 it’s 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.
This work space demanded lots of creative, attractive storage. We had the pegboard custom built for the space so she has plenty of space to keep her tools within easy reach. The bold orange of the pegboard and the colorful TV stand (located just right of the desk) mirror the movement and energy of the mural without competing with it, creating a sense of color symmetry in the room.

Large-format, low-maintenance natural slate and attractive, easy-care landscaping blend the low-profile home with its ocean-front setting.

Blue cheese is characterized by its sharp and salty taste. In addition to the flavoring, blue cheese is also known for its strong scent. If guests find its characteristics too strong, figs can help sweeten the salty taste.
Blue throw pillows add a pop of color over the long sectional and contemporary arm chairs brightening the neutral tones in the room. A natural wood coffee table and matching mantel add a rustic influence to the design complimenting the overall coziness. A gray slate fireplace surround acts as a thin accent wall while a succulent wall mixture decorates with gorgeous texture.
