Peacock Blue: Old Meets New
Chairs are the most commonly updated item in the design world. If an old chair frame is in good shape, it can easily be repainted, reupholstered and loved like new again. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn updates a traditional dining chair with peacock-blue paint, brand-new fabric and decorative casters. The bold paint color adds a contemporary look to the classic frame, creating a one-of-a-kind desk chair for this home office.
Bright Chartreuse: Spiced-Up Bookshelves
Make a bold and colorful impact on a bookshelf through more than just your book arrangement. Here, designer Tobi Fairley paints the backs of the built-in a citrusy chartreuse hue. To ensure the color stands out, each book is outfitted in a white book cover next to all-white accessories. The green backdrop is now a can't-miss element of this living room.
Kelly Green: Kitchen Glam
Give a classic kitchen a colorful, one-of-a-kind twist. In this traditional space, designer Andrea Schumacher brightens all-white cabinetry with a cheerful Kelly-green island. The painted island looks especially stunning when paired with the blue floral wallpaper. Feeling bold? Why not paint all of your cabinets a vibrant hue? Your kitchen will love all the attention it gets in return.
Honey Gold: Vintage-Style Accessories
Don't forget to accessorize. It's in the details. These vintage gold bottles probably have a rich history, but you can easily mimic the look by spray-painting or gold-leafing Mason jars and medicine bottles. The collection will instantly add an eclectic and globally inspired look to your space. Design by Erinn Valencich.
