After white and natural wood, gray is the most popular finish for kitchen cabinets, but this is one trendy color that’s not at risk of going out of style. “Muted colors are soothing and easy to live with, and a signature of my work,” says designer Angela Free. “This home is located in the foggy San Francisco Marina district and the neutral yet rich palette allows for a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors.”
This light and bright living room pairs together a neutral color palette with classic crown molding and a white fireplace. A woven natural fiber area rug partially covers the dark hardwood floors, while a pair of French doors lead the way to the outdoor patio. A floral upholstered armchair provides a cozy spot for relaxing.
The monochromatic teal color scheme of this modern living room pops against background elements in neutral tones of gray and white. Gold accents bring a modern-retro vibe to the polished space. Roman shades have a similar hue to the paneled accent wall, allowing them to "disappear" visually while still adding privacy and filtering light for TV viewing.
What girl wouldn't love curling up to read or daydream on this cushioned window seat, with drawer storage, bedecked with blush and neutral throw pillows in soft textures, as the sun comes in through the white molded window frame. The blush pink walls and hardwood floors characterize the color and tone scheme of this eclectic girl's bedroom.
This open concept living room is made to feel even more open and inviting thanks to a soft color palette. Neutral furniture encircles a glass coffee table facing a white mantel and built-in shelving. A coastal display of pottery decorates the space with a stylish, beachy vibe, and a coffered ceiling completes the timeless design.
This newly remolded master bath achieves a 1920s look with the color palette TriplePoint Design Build selected for the design and special features they added to the room. For example, the beautifully patterned accent window seen behind a white storage cabinet brings a sense of vintage style to the space. A display of sunflowers is another interesting touch.
Treat secondary living spaces to their very own trees—it’s a great chance to branch out from your main decorating color scheme and style to try something new and different. In the bonus room the design team used cool blues and swaths of silver create a glam look on the tree and at the window, with a large white wreath.
The bay window creates a sunny setting for this desk space. Ruffled curtains frame the windows and white roman shades control the natural light. A stylish and cozy chair features a gold pattern complimenting the neutral color palette. Yellow tulips adds a pop of vibrant yellow for the ultimate sunny feel.
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.
A large, stylish kitchen is the perfect relaxing space for the family to cook together, enjoy their meals and entertain their friends. White cabinets around the main section of the kitchen keep the space light and bright, while the blue, arabesque tile adds a splash of muted color. To add contrast and counter space, designers installed a kitchen island whose color scheme is the opposite of the rest of the kitchen-dark cabinets and white countertops-to add interest and create a transition between the kitchen and dining areas.
Clean modern forms are the defining element in this room, with a sleek sectional and hot pink armchairs. The brightly colored Ikat-patterned rug was the inspiration for the palette which includes pink, yellow and blue. The focal fireplace wall features a gray-and-white faux finish and a large round nickel framed mirror over the mantel.
This coastal cottage bathroom brings the beach indoors with a soothing blue and cream color palette. Painted white cabinets are glazed for a vintage look and then topped with blue-green countertops. A mix of tiles, from the matte shellstone floors to the blue glass and sea pebble mosaics, bring beautiful texture to the space.
Elegant simplicity is the name of the game for this home, and in the master bathroom, this is achieved through a neutral color palette and a modern design. The double vanity is made from gray and white marble resting on wood cabinets. The floor is brown tile with a gray and white center. There is nothing extra in this design, which makes the space feel clean and unhindered, while still remaining elegant.
The custom bar includes four pro-quality taps, white subway tile backsplash and a custom shelf with under-lighting that illuminate bottles or decorative items. Warm wood tones pair with muted gray-greens and charcoal for an inviting, pub-inspired color palette. Weathered wood chairs surround a round dining table, perfect for conversations and gatherings of friends.
The elegant design of this kitchen features a neutral color palette. A large, indented marble backsplash is a beautiful finish against the smooth cabinetry and cream range hood with silver border. Boxy white barstools provide seating against the long wooden island, while a trio of lamp-shaded pendant lights hang above the island for additional lighting.
A charcoal gray tufted sofa is a fitting focal point in this stylish living room setup. A mix of white, neutral and blue throw pillows pad the sofa and compliment the color scheme used throughout the space. A natural wood ceiling beam brings a gorgeous texture and accent.
This large kitchen island provides counter space for prep and cooking as well as an eat-in area. Red place mats and a red fondue pot bring color to the sunny, white surroundings and tie in the red details in the connected living space. Mounted bicycle wheels are a unique decorative statement.
