Color + Pattern: Townhouse With Hints of Teal

By limiting the color palette of this DC townhouse to shades of white, cool gray and wood, designer Kerra Michele Huerta ensured that teal accents would positively pop in each room. Thus, from the runners in the hallway to the backsplash in the kitchen, teal becomes a point of interest and makes the house look cohesive.

Foyer With Exposed Brick

Foyer decor is simple and efficient: exposed brick, a few wall hooks and striking black tile on the floor.

Hall With Photo Gallery Wall

Custom FLOR rugs and carpeting give graphic punch and color to rooms all over the house. This hallway also gets a vibrant gallery wall of favorite family photos.

Blue and White Contemporary Living Room With Leather Armchair

In the living room, designers used a neutral foundation of white, gray and brown, then layered pops of turquoise on top. Furnishings are from RH Modern, DWR and Room & Board.

Blue Sectional and Floor Lamp

For seating, a large sectional is smart in the living room; the robin's egg blue hue gets a graphic boost from a playful mix of pillows.

Bookshelf With Gray Statue

Books get grouped by color in the living room bookshelf, and then brought to life by fun figurines and other artwork, as well as a few perfectly placed plants.

Wood Bartop and Black Barstools

To pick up the warm colors of the kitchen's copper range, designers added live edge wood bartops and open shelving.

Galley Kitchen With Produce Scale

The narrow shape of the kitchen feels lighter and brighter thanks to white upper cabinets, some with glass doors, and big windows. The lower cabinets have a pale gray wash, a pretty blend with the appliances' stainless steel.

Kitchen Shelves With Blue and Gray Backsplash

The kitchen gets a gorgeous backsplash made of gloss gray, matte gray and teal tiles (all from Waterworks). Their dynamic pattern creates subtle plays of color and texture.

Kitchen With Copper Range

The copper range and hood were custom made for the kitchen and matched by the pulls on the drawers and cabinets.

Open Plan Kitchen and Dining Area With Railing

Exposed brick peeks out from the rowhouse's side walls, a compelling note of texture in the main living area. In the kitchen, gray-washed cabinets help anchor the airy space.

Dining Table and Leather Banquette

A custom leather banquette makes it easy for the home's family of four to gather round the marble dining table.

Blue Bathroom With Exposed Brick Wall

Exposed brick is a masterful backdrop for this bathroom's large, colorful painting. A copper mirror pulls the warm color onto the adjacent wall.

Bedroom With Blue Headboard

The master bedroom's headboard and matching bedside lamps pick up on the blue accents used throughout the home. A long, black-and-white bolster pillow makes a strong graphic statement on the bed.

Contemporary Master Bedroom With Blue Table Lamp

One of the stars of the house is the tiger print fabric used to make shades for the master bedroom. Different shades of blue are layered beautifully throughout the rest of the room.

Kitchen Countertop With Clock

A metal backdrop over this countertop means photos, projects, lists can be easily put up with a magnet or two. The hardware on the drawers and cabinets is copper, matching the kitchen's range and hood.
