Blue and Pink Cottage Living Room With Check Pillows

This pretty living room starts with an all-white foundation—white walls, fireplace and a sofa—then layers in blues and soft pinks. A mix of patterns, from florals to checks, delivers modern personality.

Blue and Pink Living Room With Floral Armchairs

Pastels set a serene, soft mood in this living area, from the china blue rug to the light pink ceramic jars. Armchairs get a whimsical oversized floral print.

Cottage Living Room With Pink Tray

Style a big, soft ottoman like a coffee table, with a tray and a collection of pretty items.

Built-In Bookshelf and Pink Tray

For a coffee table or ottoman tableau that looks perfectly pulled together, choose a single color and then select items of different sizes that fall within that hue.

Blue and White Floral Armchair

For a slightly more contemporary look, select a classic pattern, then supersize it. This armchair looks adorable in an oversized floral print.

Transitional Foyer With Pink Bench

A light gray door looks smashing in this foyer, paired with a crisp white wall. Pink and gold furnishings continue the soft, romantic mood.

Foyer With Gray and Black Front Door

Black on one side, pale gray on the other...this home's front door does a stylish changing act.

White Dresser and Blue Lamp

This wonderful wall uses a white monotone backdrop to call special attention to interesting shapes (the stairs) and details (the dresser pulls). Cheerful patterns pull the whole tableau together.

Blue and White Cottage Kitchen With Woven Stools

Stroll into this dreamy chef kitchen and the gorgeous blue stove and range hood immediately catch your eye. The color is cheerily continued in the woven barstools' plaid pattern, as well as a sprinkling of ceramics around the room.

Cottage Chef Kitchen With Blue Stove

China blue is the sweetest accent color in this gourmet kitchen, starting with the stove and range hood. A plaid roman shade over the window, as well as touches like the rug and ceramics, echo the hue.

Blue and White Cottage Kitchen With Urns

Gorgeous china urns pick up the shade's soft blue in this charming cottage kitchen.

Cottage Breakfast Nook With Plaid Chairs

Greet the day in happy style in this breakfast nook. Its woven chairs and bench sport a jaunty blue-and-white plaid. A pink rug gives off warmth underfoot.

Gray Cottage Bathroom With Check Floor

This bathroom charms with its soft blend of pastels and fun patterns. The light gray cabinetry is pale enough to act as a neutral, and brings out the similar shades in the wallpaper and window treatment.

Gray Cottage Mudroom With Floral Pillow

This space is too pretty to call a mudroom, and yet it offers all the useful storage for everyday items.

Blue Cottage Sitting Area With Striped Sofa

Oh, the things a good leopard print pillow can do! In this cottage sitting area, the pattern brings in a hint of sass.

Cottage Console Table and Bench

A long table serves as pretty display space and, with the addition of a comfy bench, can also easily transform into a desk if work needs to get done!

Pink Cottage Sitting Room With Blue Lamp

Light pink paint washes this sitting room's walls in calm. To keep the overall look from feeling too precious, designers layered in lots of more modern-feeling prints via the accent pillow, ottoman, rug and window shade.

Cottage Nightstand With Rose Bouquets

Nosegays of roses bring a touch of romance to this bedside table tableau.

Pink Cottage Sitting Area With Rounded Bench

In a smaller space, a curved bench is just the thing to add more seating without being too bulky to get around.

Blue Striped Cottage Bench

A deeper window sill can double as a slim shelf, just right for a lovely vase or picture frame.

Pink and Blue Cottage Bathroom With Penny Tiles

Pale blue penny tiles on the floor are an enchanting pairing with this small bathroom's fun floral wallpaper. The white vanity is a place for the eye to rest in between them.

Pink Cottage Bathroom With Graphic Wallpaper

This bathroom gets its whimsical personality from the wallpaper: a repeating blue floral print on a pale pink background.

Blue and White Cottage Bedroom With Plaid Shades

This bedroom uses plaids and checks to make its mood more cheery. A small dark blue table is a handsome dressing area or desk.

Gray and White Transitional Bedroom With Plaid Duvet

Smoky gray blue elements bring a trim, tailored effect to this bedroom. Menswear-inspired stripes and plaids are a smart pick for the bed linens.

White Daybed and Blue Pillows

An antique daybed gets a modern push from dark blue pillows in strong, contemporary-feeling patterns.

White Double Vanity Bathroom With Blue Urns

Two large china urns act as visual anchors in this airy white bathroom. The large gold mirror is another striking focal point, its rounded corners a softening contrast to the vanity's crisp lines.

Bathroom Cabinet and Dressing Table

Ceiling-high cabinetry holds all the bathroom extras, like towels and toiletries. A dressing table fits perfectly in between.

Gray Transitional Home Office With Hydrangeas

In this chic home office, a palette of blues, grays and purples creates an atmosphere that's both welcoming and serene.
