Royal blue accents reign supreme in this great room, adding a stylish touch to the comfortable cream-colored furniture. The rustic fireplace and birdcage light fixture create a pleasant visual contrast with the modern windows.

Dark-painted trim inside the window casings echoes the dark woven frame of the mirror in this California bathroom, creating contrast with the neutral walls and cabinetry. The furniture-style vanity has inset doors and drawers for a streamlined look.
