The May edition of House Beautiful featured a Michigan lake house designed by Chicago’s own Martin Horner. The color blue is prominent throughout the home, as are Eastern elements and detailed patterns. I absolutely loved this blue bedroom and wanted to steal the look for myself (which is odd because I normally don’t go for this much color and pattern). But the monochromatic palette and lush layers of pattern work to create an interesting retreat where one could escape to relax and recharge. I think it would be like a mini-vacation to a far-off land every time you stepped into the room. Honestly, I kind of wish I could dive into this photo and hang out here for awhile.
So here is my budget-friendly take on the room above…
What do you think? Do you like all the blue or is it too much for your tastes? Do you think this look would work with any other color? I’d love to hear what you have to say!
