White Contemporary Living Room With Blue Table

On the far wall of the main living area, glass doors let the outdoors become a vital part of the interior's look. Most of the furniture is neutral or white, which allows for lots of layering of compelling textures and vibrant accents.

Multicolored Contemporary Living Room With Yellow Flowers

This living room has all the colorful panache of a piece of modern artwork, with vivid yellows, red, pinks leaping out from the white walls and furniture.

Contemporary Foyer and Stairs With Runner

The graphic print runner on the stairs has the neat effect of wrapping the foyer in a chic, dark frame.

Contemporary Foyer Tableau With Yellow Art

Two tropical houseplants in matching white planters stand at either side of this console plus ottoman tableau. The colorful artwork is like a ray of sunshine on the scene.

Contemporary Multicolored Foyer With Yellow Art

Start with a white wall and simple white Parsons table, then layer in lots of color via artwork, books and houseplants. The formula's an easy way to brighten up a hall or foyer!

White Open Plan Kitchen With Blue Island

This lovely kitchen keeps its look from being too monotone by giving the island a blue base and barstools with blue cushions. The color is continued in the adjacent breakfast nook with a friendly blue banquette.

Transitional Neutral Eat-In Kitchen With Blue Banquette

Natural accents—woven pendants and barstools, a simple wood bench and table—make this eat-in kitchen so friendly and warm. Blue cushions for the bench and stools help give depth to the look.

Scandinavian Dining Room and Kitchen With Red Chairs

The view from the living room into the kitchen is perfectly symmetrical, with the sofa, dining table and kitchen island all lining up and centered in the open doorway. For asymmetrical fun, two red dining chairs are mixed in amongst all the white.

Open Plan Dining Room and Kitchen With Palms

Combining many different materials was one of the key strategies of this home's design to keep the neutral palette lively and compelling. On the dining table, an easy, striking centerpiece is made from a mix of glass vases each holding a stem or two.

Contemporary Open Plan Dining Room and Living Room

The farmhouse feels clean and sophisticated inside. It starts with a base of white walls and ceilings, then layers colorful accents and textures for a result that's light, bright and full of personality.

Living Room Chair and Blue Side Table

This farmhouse's interior style is Scandinavian-inspired with clean lines and an open, organic feel. Neutral furniture is matched up with a crayon box of bright accents: yellow, green, blue, red.

Contemporary Neutral Living Room With Cowhide Ottoman

A faintly rustic feel is given to this living room by the exposed wood beams on the ceiling and the playful cowhide ottoman. Sunlight pours in from two walls full of windows.

Transitional Media Room With Blue Entertainment Center

Off the main living area is this friendly family room with a built-in entertainment center. The center's shade of blue-gray handsomely camouflages the big-screen tv and helps it from being an overwhelming presence in the space.

Mudroom With Plastic Swim Tube

Corral all the kid clutter and sports paraphernalia in one convenient place: this mudroom! There are drawers, lockers, shelves, wall hooks so everything has a place.

Neutral Contemporary Bathroom With Pink Art

Brown pairs beautifully with black and pink in this striking bathroom. Wisps of pattern drift across the wallpaper and the floor gets dressed up in a tailored, herringbone stripe.

Screen Porch With Stone Fireplace

No gnats allowed in the screened-in porch with pond and forest views. Cozy chats around the stone fireplace highly encouraged.

Contemporary White Bedroom With Blue Bed

This bedroom's dark blue bed acts as a visual anchor in the white room. Graphic bed linens and pillows liven up the color. Interesting textures come from a woven armchair, paneling behind the bed and the rug.

Neutral Bathroom With Palm Leaves

White wood paneling and lots of green plants make this pretty bathroom have all the allure of a woodland glen.

Multicolored Contemporary Kid's Room With Sloped Ceiling

An upper-floor kid's room gets a charming slanted ceiling and a window seat. The decor is punchy and not-too-precious with bright pink, red, blue and black.

Pink and White Girl's Bedroom With High Top Shoes

This girl's bedroom gets a flower garden's worth of bright pinks and reds on a cozy window filled with fun pillows. The cheerful hues are picked up on the floral comforter.

Multicolored Bathroom With Blue Mosaic Floor

Tiny blue mosaic tiles instantly perk up the entire look of this bathroom. Paired with red and yellow accents, the space is a lesson in the fun of primary colors!
