The beautiful red siding on this country porch gives the look of a barn with the updated details of a home. The blue doors pop beautifully against the red, and neutral tile flooring completes the design.
Multi-hued dishes echo the warmth and color of the custom oak kitchen cabinets painted red and over-glazed with brown. The backsplash, a stainless steel tile, provides an industrial contrast above neutral countertops.
Because the homeowners love blue, white and taupe, the C&H Landscaping team infused the patio with these pretty colors. Thus, blue and white planters, pillows and more make an appearance across the yard.
With a more mature color palette throughout the rest of the house, the living room was meant to evoke a sense of imagination and playfulness in the homeowners and their two daughters. This bold, red armchair and a blue pouf add a fun burst of color to the space.
Don’t shy away from consignment and resale stores. Designers Lisa Turner and Wallace Bryan of Trinity Mercantile and Design Company repurposed a vintage dresser from a consignment store for less than $500, a huge discount from the price of a new dresser of that size. Paired with a mirror, it created a good vanity space. The red lamp and the gold bedside lamps were donated to this Dwell with Dignity makeover room by Currey & Company.
The narrow stripes of a hand woven stair runner echo the blue and white striped wallpaper, lending to a boathouse look in this hallway. Vibrant red doors and coordinating lampshade complete the all-American color palette.
A rock bed surrounds the front entry of this country cabin home. Natural rock walls combine with polished wood for a beautiful contrast. A blue front door, blue barn shutters and a blue painted overhang add color to the natural palette. A glimpse of the red siding peeks through for an additional color accent.
The waterfall kitchen island boasts a bright blue countertop that complements the red details found throughout the space. Concrete flooring connects the kitchen to the dining and living spaces, adding flow to the design.
This trendy gray living room features a taupe sofa and armchair paired with navy blue velvet armchairs. Lavender Roman shades cover the windows while a neutral shag rug is paired with a contemporary coffee table at the center of the room. Bright red throw pillows add a pop of vibrant color.
Striped tent valances with red cotton poplin trim and trellis-patterned wallpaper, all from Schumacher, are used in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Homes for the Holidays Designer Showhouse. Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison Glenn said she was inspired by the colors of the French flag and Schumacher’s classic pastoral print, “Plaisirs de Chine,” seen on the pillow sham and duvet. The headboard is vintage faux bamboo and the coverlet has banding in blue. A demilune bench is at the foot of the bed. Mathison Glenn also used a watercolor painting over the bed, an antique French commode and an octagonal mirror in the space.
If there's one color scheme that's equally fit for spring and summer, it's orange and blue. Make things a little springier by opting for shades of orange that have more yellow than red undertones. Here, tangerine is paired with navy blue and white for a fun and fresh vibe.
Complementary colors are always a perfect combination since each color sits directly opposite the other on the color wheel, resulting in the perfect contrast. Here, red and green are used but with a fresh spin as the red is toned down to raspberry and the green has a touch of blue, making it appear more emerald.
