Beach Cottage With Fun Neon Touches

Instead of beige walls and sand-colored furniture, this beach cottage in Newport Beach, Calif., opts for bright neon decor: a teal front door, hot pink pillows, a coral vanity, etc. These details, plus a mural of the local boardwalk, ombre stairs decorated with surf lyrics and a shower floor that reads "Ahoy", create a space that's cute, coastal and much more youthful.

Multicolored Contemporary Living Room With Blue Sofa

If you could step into a rainbow, it might look something like this cheerful living room. A blue leather sectional anchors the seating area, layered with bright pillows. Next door, a lime green table is the heart of the candy-colored breakfast nook.

Multicolor Breakfast Nook With Ceiling Wallpaper

In this breakfast nook, look up! The wallpaper inspired the color palette for the entire cottage. Artist Lindsay Cowles creates it by digitally translating her large-scale abstract oil paintings into wall coverings and textiles.

Blue Kitchen With Blue Pendants

In the glamorous kitchen, the blue of the cabinetry is brightened by brass accents: in the range hood, the pendant lights and the faucets. Countertops are quartz and hand-painted ceramic tiles mark out a bold, dynamic pattern.

Black Powder Room With Green Mirror

This amazing powder room has no fear when it comes to mixing bold colors. Raindrops in dashing black scatter over the walls. A green mirror and a coral pink vanity continue the wonderful drama.

Blue and White Foyer With Striped Basket

The house makes a magical impression right from the foyer, where a hand-drawn asymmetrical pattern decorates the wall and flooring.

Staircase With Ferris Wheel Mural

All the neon brilliance of Balboa's boardwalk fills the stairwell. The amazing mural was custom made for the space and instantly infuses the home with modern retro nostalgia.

Blue Coastal Staircase

Wave blue paint and surf lyrics give this staircase tons of beachy appeal.

Black Master Bedroom With Shiplap

Black shiplap dresses up the wall behind the bed in the master bedroom. For another intriguing layer of texture, black grass cloth covers the ceiling.

Yellow Clawfoot Tub

What could be more fun than a citron yellow clawfoot tub! The designer painted the tub's legs a high lacquer black for an extra dose of drama.

Black and White Master Bathroom With Brass Vanity

In the master bathroom, designers stripped down the vanity to its brass bones, then added a bold, graphic backsplash. Octagonal mirrors are another striking geometric layer.

Black and White Ahoy Tiles

Penny tiles have a playful message for this master bathroom.

Blue and Pink Guest Bedroom With Barn Door

Here's a creative layout: The narrow guest bedroom sleeps up to four with queen beds that face each other. Coral pink and blue are the playful color palette.

Multicolored Guest Room With Pink Ceiling

So many joyful prints turn this guest bedroom into a whimsical wonderland. Pink palm leaves decorate the ceiling. The bed mimics terrazzo tile. And piled on top are a jumble of pillows in different shapes.

Blue Small Bathroom With Dots

This bathroom is tiny, yet its splashy patterns make it memorable. Huge dots contrast tiny mosaic tiles in swimming pool blue. A zipper of black and white is an exciting outline.
