This bedroom was designed for a preteen boy using a red white and blue color scheme. The bed was positioned to create a sense of openness, and dark blue board and batten molding was added to the lower portion of the wall.

There's plenty of room for play in this superhero-inspired kids' bedroom with a loft bed, Superman artwork and modern swivel chairs.

Subtle, Yet Impactful Color Palette

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.

Electric Blue Walls, White Trim and Red Linens

The solution-based design for this attic-shaped room with left and right sloping ceilings was to open up the ceiling and add collar ties to make the space feel airy and inviting, and utilize unused space below to create closets. The six handy closets blend in with the rest of the bedroom's electric blue walls, with pure white trim that helps the closets coordinate with the exposed collar ties above.

Blue Living Room With Accents of Red

To integrate book storage into the family room, Esther had a 4' by 7' nook added to the wall behind the sofa. For richness, she opted to have the built-in stained in a medium brown tone rather than painting it white to match the trim.

To keep the formal dining area cohesive in style with the family room as well as the breakfast nook, it is painted in the same navy blue. Framed photography, refurbished vintage chairs and a cool wooden table give personality to the space.

A sleek double vanity is topped with warm brown countertops and sleek chrome faucets. Red mirrors pop off the blue chinoiserie wallpaper, adding elegant Asian style to the space.

Classic, Patriotic Living Room

Bold red walls set the scene for this traditional living room. A globe chandelier lights up the seating area, which pairs patterned blue chairs and a cane-back armchair around a classic white fireplace.

Patriotic Bedroom With Red Bed Cover and White Vaulted Ceilings
