With her son favoring blue ornaments, Aniko Levai of Place of My Taste challenged herself to come up with a creative new palette for her holiday decor. The stunning result incorporates faux flowers with fresh greenery in a Goodwill-found vase, pomegranates and those striking blue ornaments. Runners of thick, black wrapping paper stood in for a more traditional table covering for a modern result.
A glass vase full of oranges adds another layer of color to this patio table. A dark-blue-and-white patterned runner is complemented by bright blue and green cloth napkins and white plates, making for a perfect arrangement for alfresco dining.
Curtains pull back to reveal white french doors connecting this foyer to the outside. A colorful runner softens the hardwood floor leading through the hall space. Matching upholstered gray chairs sit at the end of a long wood table supporting a collection of blue patterned vases below a large mounted shutter and watercolor display.
The runner was elsewhere in the home, but designer Heather Hogan Roberts claimed it for the living room. Now, it brings pattern into the hallway, which has a brick accent wall. She curated books to create symmetrical stacks on the bench and to bring blue and white into the room.
A low-hanging crystal chandelier hangs above a dining room table, covered in a white tablecloth and silver runner. Blue candles and a centerpiece made of silver ornamental pieces add a more formal touch to the casual space.
Sleek white and gray cabinets create a bright and airy space. A large eat-in island features white countertops and an unexpected blue and white table runner. Modern globe-shaped pendant lights hang above the kitchen island highlighting a bare branch centerpiece.
A multi-colored floor runner leads visitors into the heart of the home, stopping just before a green console table. With the brilliant blue ocean framed in the window above, the architects effectively created a vignette that the owners could enjoy even when its too cold to swim.
