Brave New World

Homeowner Angela Blehm went deliciously off-course in choosing a soft minty green for her kitchen cabinets in this distinctly hip Color Form kitchen.

Ombre Steps

The cool pastels of Color Form are on perfect display in artist, blogger and talented self-taught designer Angela Blehm's Georgia home.

Saturated Brights and Chalky Grays

Color is naturally a key component of the Color Form trend. Intense, pastel-based hues and chalky grays offer wonderful contrast to bright whites in this home.

Blue as a Base

A tranquil blue as a base color on walls, woodwork and curtains makes colors really pop in this girl's bedroom.

Graphic Interest

These playful canvases in a rainbow of hues exemplify the inventive Color Form vibe.

Mix of Hard and Soft

Funky pillows bring soft-but-sharp geometric forms to this Eighties-inspired playroom in blogger and artist Angela Blehm's Georgia home.

Natural Wood

The natural wood of the pendant cage is nicely set off by the more modern, matte finish of the kitchen cabinets in this perfect blend of Color Form elements.

Saturated Pastels and Tonal Neons

A clever mix of saturated colors brings the unexpected to this Georgia home and kick up the volume in this young girl's bedroom.

Natural and Manmade

Wood floors contrast beautifully with the curvy plastic chairs and modern touches in this Color Form dining room.

Fun Meets Sophistication

Homeowner Angela Blehm had her contractor contrast her custom-built mint green cabinets with the warm, modern contrast of wooden handles.

Modern Mix

A marble fireplace but in an edgier, contemporary style and a mix of modern and classic pieces define the Color Form trend.

Clean Lines

A lack of embellishment, slick surfaces, a minimum of fuss keep this kitchen cutting edge.

Color Guard

Saturated teal, cotton candy pink and a subdued sideboard create the ideal color balance in this cool, but still colorful hallway. White walls for art aren't your only option: coordinating wall color to an important piece of artwork is a great option shown here in this Color Form space.

Mod Meets Luxurious

Plenty of soft textures in plush rugs, faux fur and channel upholstery give this bedroom a feeling of luxury even while the furniture lines stay modern and cool.

Play Time

The tonal neon lamp shade and soft baby blue chest of drawers lend surprising sophistication to this boy's bedroom.
