The deep blue walls are upholstered in a Romo fabric complete with soft batting behind it. The upholstery nails were put in by hand and match the nails on the chairs and bench. Their satin nickel finish picks up on the other finishes in the kitchen.

Mod seating and fairy‐tale pendant light. Sleek smooth mod plastic chairs create a dynamic counterpoint to an intricate whimsical pendant light here. Sticking with white for the chairs and light fixture keeps this kitchen (with its pink cabinets) from veering into too‐sweet territory.

Same chair same color family. A riff on the same‐chair different‐colors idea but with more subtlety. The idea here is to choose closely related colors – try earth tones or shades of a single hue.

Keep a thoughtfully edited book collection. Books can be one of the great pleasures in life – staring at an overburdened bookcase with tomes spilling onto the floor is not. Aim to keep only the books you love and those you will read again and let go of the rest. Your living room will thank you.

This fantastic open kitchen has several shades of warm and cool neutrals with just a small strip of gold. When you use just a tiny amount of a bold color in an otherwise neutral space be sure to put the color on something that you want to draw the eye to such as the quartz countertop here.

Light it up with neon. A room saturated in charcoal – from the walls to the paintwork – makes a gorgeous backdrop for neon colors. This electric‐pink table along with the bright yellow artwork pops and helps to define the room which could have been a bit of a black hole without such an energizing color. A couple of pieces are enough though so the dramatic effect of the charcoal isn't lost.

Create an illusion. Where you choose to use light and dark colors can have a huge influence on a space. In this lofty white room the ceiling and walls down to the picture rail have been painted black helping to visually lower the high ceiling for a much cozier mood. Or try painting the end wall of a long narrow room black to visually bring it forward.

High‐backed bench on one side folding chairs on the other. The casual vibe of simple café‐style folding chairs is balanced here by a comfortable upholstered settee on the other side and slipcovered chairs at the ends. If you already have a stately traditional piece (like this settee) folding café chairs can make it feel more casual – plus they are easy on the budget.
Rosetta Loreta Bathroom January 05th, 2017
This chic square soap pump also by Jason Wu has a style reminiscent of his Brizo faucet. For an exotic flair consider a decorative basin like this one by Kohler. Add gold accent pieces to offset the blue. Hands‐free! Simply tap the faucet with your finger (or a bare elbow or forearm if your hands are full) to control the water flow. This bath provides a stylish alternative to traditional walk‐ins with an extra‐wide opening grab bar and chair‐height seat for easy entry and exit. It fits a standard 60‐inch bath footprint. This ready‐to‐go kit creates the perfect little niche to put anything. It comes with everything you need and is available in a variety of colorways. This system converts your existing fixed showerhead to a handshower and rainhead combination. It's such a quick and easy remodel! A slidebar bracket allows for customized heights perfect for both short and tall members of your family. The Twist allows bathers to quickly switch between four spray settings with a flick or your thumb – handy for those early mornings when hand‐eye coordination has yet to kick in.

Matching striped upholstery and solid pillows. Have your armchairs covered in identical striped fabric as the sofa and finish the look off with a cluster of solid‐hued pillows.
