Large mirrors in the living room help to make the space feel like it continues in width and allow light to bounce through the room. "I am still in awe of the giant mirrors in the living room and how they transformed that room for the better," says designer Susana Simponpietri.
A previously empty white-walled living room is now a soothing pale blue, with a light green on the ceiling and the backs of the built-in bookcases. Pale blue chairs and and an ottoman covered in blue-and-green polka dots round out the room's color scheme.
Master bedroom in soothing tones of pale blue and white on a neutral background. Relax and read in patterned upholstered armchairs with your feet propped up on a round blue ottoman. Sleep in four-poster wooden bed with blue and white linens. The dressers are white with silver detail topped with bedside lamps of pale blue bases and white shades. A bench with silver base and neutral cushion sits at the end of the bed.
This dining room has been given a second lease on life with a fresh coat of pale blue paint, transitional dining furniture and a metallic chandelier. Fresh flowers and framed art add a refreshing splash of color to the design first seen on HGTV's Buying and Selling.
A powder blue accent wall is the perfect complement to the rich chocolate tones in this contemporary bedroom. A long brown curtain stretches across an entire wall for maximum shade and light control. A dark stool and tan bench create seating around the modern glass fireplace, and neutral bed linens are topped with throw pillows to match the blue, brown and neutral tones in the surrounding design.
In this soothing blue-gray and white contemporary bathroom, small details add visual texture, such as the framed mirror, the white glass-tile backsplash, the vessel sink and the textured dark wood vanity.
Muted shades of gray-blue pair with chocolate brown to create a lush and glamorous living room that's still comfy and cozy enough to hang out in every day. A gorgeous piano lends a dose of sophistication to the space, and contemporary artwork adds visual interest.
Sleek dark cabinetry is the focal point in this traditional master bath. A custom cabinet on an angled wall accentuates the room's length and maximizes storage. Polished nickel fixtures and hardware add a touch of elegance, as do hand-blown sconces and a freestanding tub.
A chipped plaster bust paired with a timeworn mirror creates a dynamic juxtaposition in this pale living space. Despite the antique decor, the neutral wall color and minimalist approach to accessories are hallmarks of transitional design.
This luxuriously appointed master bedroom features an elaborate faux-finished ceiling with a recessed center medallion and ornate crown moldings. Traditional furniture blends with a hanging tapestry and intricate light fixtures. The interior design corresponds with the home's Gothic-inspired architecture and castle-like detailing.
Keeping the space light and bright, Venetian plaster on the walls and a tongue and groove ceiling give this room the perfect texture and coastal feel. Pale blue accents found in the bed linens and throw pillows reflect the ocean hues surrounding the home, while a dark wood canopy bed and upholstered bench add beautiful contrast to the soft colors.
