A stunning chandelier lights up the blue color of the perfectly restored Second Empire style home's bar, fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, custom shelving for glassware, and plenty of comfy seating for guests.
This light blue window seat from designer Judi Ackerman uses patterned draperies, coordinating upholstered chairs and throw pillows with blue and white paisley print to create a cozy and comfortable retreat.
The light wood of the circular dining table shines beautifully against the darker hardwood floor and distressed finish on the buffet. The coffered ceiling and open doorways keep the room feeling spacious. Silver chairs are a modern contrast to the traditional details, and the blue cushions add a touch of color to the neutral palette.
Natural light illuminates this colorful breakfast nook with a custom walnut top table and blue chairs. A window seat boasts a blue cushion and decorative throw pillows, connecting to a built-in countertop with ample cabinets and shelves underneath for storage. A metallic chandelier lends an edgy finishing touch.
The master suite project involved moving walls for a closet expansion, a bathroom gut job, and removing all traces of the dark, dated furnishings that closed in the space. We used a neutral base palette with soft blue touches and layered in heirloom-quality textiles, elegant lighting, and lots of texture.
Blue cabinetry frames this inviting window seat and creates a monochromatic look over the space. A white roman shade compliments the bright, natural light of the window as it streams over the striped seat cushion and plush patterned pillows. A contemporary art fixture and bright floor rug add a peak of intrigue to the otherwise sweetly simple design.
A thick blue cushion and line of throw pillows soften this wood bench for a comfortable outdoor sitting space. Ceramic stands create a decorative coffee table set up, and a metal end table adds a rougher texture to the serene design. Landscape lighting bounces off the glass retaining wall for a glowing effect.
This ipe deck features a custom powder-coated steel planter and native and drought-resistant perennials and shrubs. Two wooden lounge chairs with light blue cushions sit atop the deck, providing a cozy spot for relaxation.
Built-in banquette seating is paired with cozy wicker chairs around a fire pit for a comfortable entertaining and conversation spot. Light blue cushions are used throughout the space and on the pool lounge chairs reflect the stunning blue skies of Arizona.
The tiny tile base with stone topper fit the fire pit perfectly to the surrounding wall and nearby house. Royal blue cushions on the brown wicker chairs glow beautifully in the fire light. Stairs leading from the house to the fire pit area are equipped with built in lighting and give the design an amphitheater inspired look.
This blue and white coastal breakfast nook is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee with a morning ocean view. The large wicker pendant light acts as a focal piece in the space and hangs above a square neutral table with white chairs and blue cushions.
To make the kitchen and dining room look cohesive, Bria Hammel Interiors pulled in another wicker chair with a blue plaid cushion. A print in a gold frame completes this corner and speaks to the pretty pendants over the island.
Most of this riverfront home's spaces display light, soothing colors as the wall color, but the dining room adds drama with its dark navy blue walls. Black wood chairs with blue and white cushions surround the oval dining table, with two neutral upholstered chairs in the corners for additional seating.
A white four-poster bed takes center stage in this neutral bedroom. An adjacent white chair with light blue seat cushions complements the deeper blue colors in the entertainment center and wall art. A brown-and-white striped rug enhances the nautical design.
The springy greens and moody blues in this guest bedroom could easily become overpowering if not balanced properly. To keep the high energy hues in check tonally, accents of white were used including: the window trim in the adjacent powder room; the whitewashed basket pendant along the ceiling; the upholstery of the seagrass armchair cushions; and the linen slipcover of the sleeper sofa.
Vibrant accents, a vintage chandelier and distressed mirror create a comfortable and fun dining space. The white crown molding stands out against the light blue walls and ceiling. Painted white chairs with striped seat cushions complement the crisp white elements in the space.
