When thinking about decorating with color, look no further than your garden. Floral hues -- such as pinks, yellows, and violets -- can be pale to saturated and make any space feel more cheerful.
Too often a guest room devolves into a bland, one-size-fits-all space that really pleases no one. Why not make it an enclave where you and your family will feel like honored guests, too? Vivid-pink walls and an upholstered daybed transform the room into a retreat where everyone feels they belong. As a comforting counterbalance to the saturated color, the furniture and fabrics are cream and pale gray.
A colorful Dutch woolen blanket hangs above a bed that was specially designed for this master bedroom. Family photos are displayed in plastic holders attached to the wall with map tacks, making it easy to change and update the array. The yellow color warms up a mostly-white loft space.
In this room, gray wainscoting and bare floors soften the vivid color of the walls, which are adorned with an asymmetrical array of small paintings, sea fans, and a framed collection of starfish. The Gustavian settee is upholstered in linen, the stool is from the mid-nineteenth century, and the side chair is baroque.
