A large distressed mirror made to look like a vintage window adds depth to this small sitting area. Upholstered light blue chairs with matching throws and pillows create a comfortable sitting area around an ottoman. A bouquet of hot pink roses adds vibrant color to the room's soft palette.
Designer SuzAnn Kletzien's client requested a starburst mirror in the design plan, so Kletzien positioned a starburst mirror collage on a navy accent wall in the living room. She also reupholstered an egg chair in a deep blue velvet fabric and had a custom ottoman built with a removable tray in the center for drinks and snacks.
The design of this dining room aims to bring together an exciting mix of patterns and textures, all in a palette of blue. The custom chairs have a matte leather outside and a shiny linen patina inside. Artwork is made up of glass ovals clustered together.
French doors open from the living room to the den, revealing a pair of stools upholstered in a custom fabric. A large blue linen ottoman also serves as a coffee table, and two Griffin club chairs with nailhead trim create a cozy sitting area. White sheers filter the natural light and draw the eye up to the coffered ceiling to heighten the space, while a blue-and-white cotton rug softens the hardwood floor.

Designer SuzAnn Kletzien used striking and harmonious patterns throughout this eclectic blue living room, including neutral and dark navy velvets, subtle gold and blue stripes and a mineral-inspired pattern. A rich blue velvet fabric with a floral pattern was used to cover the custom-made ottoman, complete with a removable wood serving tray.
Floral art by Erin Gregory was the inspiration for the palette in the family room. The two blue chairs were painted a custom aqua and covered in a durable Sunbrella fabric, and the draperies at the arched window are color blocked with blue and cream. A leather ottoman, green glass lamps, sofas and shearling benches add to the comfortable feel in the room designed by Kandrac & Kole.

This teen girl's room made small changes for a big impact. By using the day bed for sleeping and sitting, it's an easy place to have friends over. Adding a yellow chevron rug, woven pink pouf ottomans, and feminine feather lamp ties all of her bedding together while adding texture to the room.
Eastern-medicine student Stacy Kon remodeled the inefficient master bathroom of her Los Angeles home into this relaxing retreat every bit as spa-like as the spaces in which she practices one of her passions: acupuncture. A lover of all things blue, Stacy chose a refreshing shade of robin's-egg blue for the walls and ceilings, a good match with the white subway tile. A large rain shower head is mounted above the oversized tub, and a glass shower partition installed on a swivel bracket swings back flush with the back wall when the shower is not in use. When the shower is in use, the glass partition keeps spray from the showerhead contained within the soaking tub. Rather than extending the white tile for use on the floors, vanity and tub surround, Stacy opted for custom, cool gray concrete poured into forms made to size. Dark wood cabinets provide visual contrast to the light blues and grays.
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
An easy way to create visual length to a room is to add horizontal stripes to the wall -- here, tones of blue and green also create a sense of airiness, and provide a focal point behind the bed. Custom shelves and desk area, perfect for doing homework or building a model car, were made from large reclaimed floor boards plus pipes and rope -- a unique way to bring unexpected and charming elements into a space.
