Slate blue and black are two colors used in dramatic interiors, but they can also be playful with the right accent color. Add sophistication to your seasonal space with a mix of slate blue, black and fire-engine red. While the colors are bold, they're also timeless and chic.
The all-white perimeter of the kitchen is contrasted with golden accents (drawer and cabinet pulls and other details) and the island's slate blue cabinets. The combination of colors is warm and welcoming.
In this lovely transitional kitchen, style works hand in hand with functionality. Transom cabinets provide extra storage and visual interest, with their interior lighting and frosted glass doors. A slate blue island adds a hit of color as well as a much-needed work space.

One of my favorite people and repeat clients came to me with a brimming-with-potential-blank-slate of a room that she wanted to use as her creative work space. We wanted a feature wall inspired by graffiti. After some brainstorming, my client decided that the focal points of the mural would be a singular fist and kente cloth, signifying power, empowerment, and culture.
To set off the mural, we painted the adjacent walls a dark slate gray. Color cues were taken from the mural and carry it’s energy around the room. We worked with Joybird to create a custom, rich, Kelly Green couch to provide her with a space to read and rest. The teal rug compliments the green and blue tones in the mural and brings the color into the center of the space.
This work space demanded lots of creative, attractive storage. We had the pegboard custom built for the space so she has plenty of space to keep her tools within easy reach. The bold orange of the pegboard and the colorful TV stand (located just right of the desk) mirror the movement and energy of the mural without competing with it, creating a sense of color symmetry in the room.
