A soothing, peaceful color palette doesn't have to be boring. The Ashley Whittaker-designed home in September's House Beautiful uses serene blues and greens in a fresh way that is both sophisticated and youthful. Let's take a look:
A large-scale photograph over the living room sofa adds a touch of playfulness to the sophisticated room.
She mixes metals in the living room, with both polished nickel and gold gilt accents. The box pleats on the chairs add a traditional element to the room, but the ikat pillows make it feel fresh. The herringbone tile in the fireplace adds fabulous pattern and texture. I never tire of Venetian mirrors.
Adding lattice work to an interior wall is such a fun way to add texture and pattern. I am dying to do this in a client's sunroom!
Lacquered chocolate brown walls in the dining room paired with updated lantern-style fixtures make the room feel modern and elegant.
A teenage daughter's bedroom is fun and colorful but sophisticated and timeless. For a youthful bedroom, roman shades trimmed with tape are a fresh alternative to billowing curtains.
A second Venetian mirror adds a glimpse of the light blue and white master bedroom with grasscloth walls. I would love to see more!
