Brown, Blue and Cream
Create an effortless and versatile color scheme by combining brown, blue and cream, like designer Shelly Riehl David did in this kitchen, dining and living room. The trick is to keep the values of each color consistent, like the dark-brown furniture that ties into the brown of the rug. (We found it: Company C's Sachi Black Bean rug.) This frees you up to surprise with accents in similar saturations, but different colors, such as the green lamp and red striped pillow.
