Blue and pink are a surprisingly grown-up combination in this handsome library, in part because of the room's sophisticated details: a plush Oriental rug, tailored armchairs, a delicate coffee table. Stripes on the curtains are a hint of a jaunty nautical touch.
This formal dining room would look right at home in a palace, what with its gold-trimmed ceiling and bright blue wallpaper. A crystal chandelier only accentuates the royal aesthetic and casts a brilliant glow over the glossy wooden dining table, checkered area rug and original floors.
Chairs upholstered in a bold, graphic fabric create instant movement and interest in this transitional dining room. White wainscoting lends a touch of sophistication to the space, while a natural fiber rug ensures the room feels casual and relaxed.
A pair of blue chairs and complimentary ottoman sit by the newly renovated fireplace in this living room after its big redo. The blue on the walls and in the chairs is reflected in blue glass tile on the fireplace surround. The crisp white mantel looks brilliant against light blues and greens.
The master bedroom actually comes with its own sitting area. Here, the designers used a dark blue wall treatment to add depth to the space, and then they layered in a neutral loveseat, matching coffee table and two patterned armchairs.
From the deep blue walls, to the metallic globe pendant, to the diagonal hardwood with an inlaid border, this light-filled, transitional office is full of interesting elements. Bright white millwork sets off the bold walls, and a work table stocked with art supplies takes the place of a traditional desk.
If your multipurpose space is used by adults and kids, consider upholstery fabrics that will help mask accidents and spills. Medium gray tones pair well together and are an excellent alternative to beige or tan.
This soothing blue dining room is taken to the next level thanks to a custom bronze ceiling treatment. The ceiling color is echoed in the dining chairs, while the blue walls and green curtains are mirrored in the room's area rug. A contemporary chandelier illuminates the metallic ceiling, drawing the eye up to heighten the space.
An L-shaped sofa frames in the conversation area in this transitional living room, where a colorful striped rug adds graphic energy. Dark blue walls are a rich and unique neutral backdrop for the space.
This cool blue living room combines comfort and glamour. Casual nature-inspired wall art tones down the formality of the Chesterfield sofa, and the rolling gray upholstered coffee table doubles as a footrest when nights call for cozy relaxation.
