Multicolored Living Room With Pink Cabinet

The living room mixes together shades of blue, pink and green for a mood that's peaceful, but not at all bland. Shape plays a big role in the room's look as well, with geometric table lamps and an unusual, carved cabinet.

Contemporary Living Room With Blue Lamps

Blue and turquoise accents are sprinkled throughout the living room, a lively contrast to the neutrals walls and furnishing. Textures bring in further visual interest, from the carved cabinet to the fur throw draped across the contemporary red chair.

Contemporary Living Room With Gray Accent Wall

Salmon pink chairs flank the fireplace wall, brightening up the living room with sassy color. The room's beige sectional allows for layers of fun textures (hello, fringed throw) and of course, lots of lounging.

Contemporary Living Room With Blue Rug

The rugs are where this living room draws its main color and energy. Under the sofa, a blue marbled beauty works bold magic. A more subtle striped rug carries into the rest of the room.

Red Chair With Fur Throw

Color block curtains and a fire engine-red chair make striking partners in this corner.

Contemporary Open Plan Kitchen and Dining Area

The way this kitchen is designed allows space for a larger dining area on one side of the room, and on the other a smaller breakfast nook. A rustic rug beneath the big table gives texture and ties in with the black accents used throughout the kitchen.

White Open Plan Kitchen With Blue Island

The kitchen opens easily to the rest of the house with an island (in fun blue and white) as a subtle boundary between spaces. Lots of natural light and a simple, airy approach make the room an appealing one to hang out in.

White Kitchen With Wood Cutting Boards

This kitchen's white base of cabinets, marble countertops and backsplash make a blank canvas on which to layer pretty textures, like the wooden cutting boards, and cheery pops of color. Even oranges get to be part of the fun!

White and Blue Kitchen With Rug

A blue runner criss-crosses this kitchen's wide plank wood floors, a touch of soft in the clean, open space.

Kitchen Countertop and Open Gold Shelves

This kitchen's open shelving gives an easy way to display attractive dishes, vases and cookbooks.

White Contemporary Kitchen With Blue Island

This kitchen's clean lines and fresh white cabinets are warmed up by brass pulls and a blue base for the island. Lighting over the island is provided by a handsome black-and-gold pendant; creamy marble cascades over the top all the way down to the floor.

Contemporary Open Plan Kitchen and Blue Linen Chair

Wide-plank hardwood floors reach across the entire kitchen, from breakfast nook to bigger dining table. The wood's warm tones are a welcome contrast to all the crisp white of countertops, chairs and walls.

White Open Plan Kitchen With Black Pendants

A glass door and window over the sink let sunlight flood into this kitchen; it bounces off the bright white countertops and cabinets and cheers up the whole space.

Eat-In Kitchen With Blue Island

One corner of this kitchen was turned into a fun dining nook with friendly colors and a basket-style, oversized pendant light that echoes the shape of the ones above the island.

Dining Nook With Black Pendant Light

For lighting in this breakfast nook, located in one corner of the open plan kitchen, designers used an airy, basket-weave pendant light. In black, it helps unify the varying shades of the dining area.

Colorful Dining Area With Tulips

So many pretty colors—peach, green, turquoise, aqua—fill this dining area with fun. The simple white table is the perfect foundation for all the bright shades and unique textures.

Contemporary Dining Nook With Green Banquette

Greens and blues create calm with just the right hint of energy in this dining nook. The painting pulls all the varied shades together. Textural accents (love that pom pom pillow!) make the scene even more visually compelling.

Multicolored Eclectic Nursery With Blue Rug

Baby's room gets so many fun colors. Soft pink walls are brightened up by the vibrant blue rug and salmon-colored armchair. Metallics, natural fibers, even pom poms add to the whimsical look.

Pink Contemporary Nursery With Black Floor Lamp

The carved spool base and dark color of this floor lamp sings out against the nursery's pale pink walls. It's a dynamic way to let the cool shapes be part of the decor.

Multicolored Bathroom With Pink Mirror

Blue, pink and gold make a memorable style impression in this bathroom. None of the shades overwhelm because they're not used in abundance. On the floor, black and white stripes are a zippy touch.

Multicolored Bathroom With Pink Mirror

Polka dots on parade in this colorful bathroom, making an appearance on the shower curtain. The crisp black-and-white palette is continued in the shower's brick-like backsplash.

Green Contemporary Bedroom With Fur Throw

This bedroom is a study in chic contrasts: Jewel tone walls pair well with neutral toned window shades and furniture. The bed has a striking fur throw that echoes the texture of the 3-D wall art.

Green Midcentury Modern Bedroom With Fur Throw

A dark, decadent wall color can make a bedroom so welcoming. This one uses emerald green, then pairs the rich color with simpler neutrals: beige shades, a white bed, glossy wooden nightstands.
