Throw pillows in blue and yellow liven up this traditional living room’s overall neutral color palette. Designer Kristen Hutchins layered a patterned wool rug over a simpler jute rug, and says the key to layering rugs is making sure the larger, main rug is neutral. "If you start out with a larger, neutral rug as the base, you can add a fun, patterned rug to define just the seating area,” she says.
A wider look at the bedroom highlights the handmade flat weave cotton area rug with a navy blue and white chevron geometric pattern that adds charm and softness over the prefinished engineered hardwood floor.
Pale blue walls serve as the backdrop for this cheery gender-neutral nursery. A chandelier adds sparkle over the crib, which sits below an octopus triptych. A blue armchair provides a cozy seat, while a red trellis-patterned area rug ties in the throw pillow and canvas storage bin.
Taking cues from the painting over the mantel, the designers layered the sectional with blue and white pillows. Thanks to their geometric shapes, the throw pillows complement the area rug and the pendant lights in the kitchen.
The large built in vanity structure stretches across one corner of this elegant traditional bathroom. Large mirrors feature mounted victorian sconces over a marble countertop. A plush tufted ottoman adds a pop of bright, blue color displayed over a faux fur rug.
A thin black-and-white striped rug layered over a jute rug works to ground the round coffee table in this small living space. A navy blue velvet sofa with a trio of different patterned pillows pairs with a skinny midcentury modern end table to complete the stylish and sophisticated design.
Layering a faux fur rug over the graphic-patterned carpet brings extra plushness and helps to define the reading nook in this master bedroom. A classic blue-and-white color palette is used in the armchair and Roman shades.
A contemporary star light is centered in this kid's bedroom for a fun contemporary touch to the design. Matching twin beds feature textured frames and striped throw blankets over the blue comforters. The powder blue color creates a light look throughout the room, with the striped floor rug adding complimentary shades to the color palette.
Impactful blue leather chairs could easily make a space feel overly formal -- but not with the addition of funky camouflage throw pillows and a safari-inspired zebra-print rug. Unique design accents also fill the room with casual personality.
The Kahlo Sapphire Rug (https://www.capelrugs.com/products/Shop/Rugs-by-Construction/Flat-Woven-Rugs/Kahlo-Sapphire) by Genevieve Gorder’s Kahlo Sapphire rug is a globally-inspired piece that shows a clear African influence. The shapes, patterns and symbols are African in nature, and reminiscent of pieces found in Mali. The deep blue shade is an homage to indigo dying. However, the overall design can also relate to a Mexican sarape. It’s a beautiful blend of global influences that is reflective of many of the most modern home decor that expresses traditional African pattern design.
Large abstract art acts as an accent wall in this beautiful, modern living space. A large, L-shaped sofa provides comfy seating on a bold, blue patterned area rug. A long, black floor lamp bends over the sofa like a faux pendant light in the room.

This formal dining room would look right at home in a palace, what with its gold-trimmed ceiling and bright blue wallpaper. A crystal chandelier only accentuates the royal aesthetic and casts a brilliant glow over the glossy wooden dining table, checkered area rug and original floors.
The neutral tones in this stylish living room are accented with soft blue from the roman shades, velvet stools and leather tufted coffee table. A brown shag rug matches the marble fireplace surround. Starbursts decorate the wall over a neutral buffet with a weaved cabinet door design.
Texture and pattern take over in the contemporary design of this sitting room. A black border divides sections of blue and neutral wall covering, and a neutral wall accent panel adds dimension to the space. A blue graphic rug and yellow graphic throw pillow add pops of color to the neutral sofa and furniture. A beautiful black lamp with layers of shades is the perfect lighting addition.
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.
