Beth Dana Design took on an extensive remodel with this early 1900s Santa Barbara farmhouse. The turquoise front door provides a jolt of color on the porch, which has barn-style lighting, a metal bin overflowing with firewood and a galvanized planter. Architectural elements include board and batten siding and a bead board ceiling.
Aqua blue walls contrast with the white floating shelves, desk and daybed to create a fun cottage atmosphere. A modern-style ceiling fan with clear Lucite blades adds to the airy feel while orange and dark blue accents provide a fresh pop of color.
The owner of this house wanted to revamp her French Country home with colors and textures that were more "her" after her divorce, so she had bright, girly colors installed in her dining room and throughout her home. The ceiling, once a traditional shade, has now been painted turquoise to match the rug and the dining room chairs. She then brought in neon yellow accents to brighten up the space, while the metallic wallpaper with a geometric design helps to continue that stylish, girly trend this homeowner so desperately wanted.
The clean, sleek look of this kitchen is achieved with navy blue and white cabinetry and a white subway tile backsplash. To add a modern element, thick concrete counters were poured on site to avoid any seams. Bright, turquoise blue stools and accessories are a fun pop of color. Brass dome pendant lights installed over the counter shine brightly against the white shiplap ceiling.
Make your dorm door stand out with a ceiling-to-floor greeting to your fellow dorm dwellers. To recreate this look, use scraps of painter's tape to divide your door into five equal sections, then outline each letter with colorful wash tape. Go back and add geometric details, if desired.

What a view! This porch is constructed and arranged to make the most of the seaside spot. Ample seating provides room for party guests or large families to lounge and dream; a covered area brings protection from the inevitable, occasional rain shower.
