Hello, everyone! I’m so happy to be here with you at Chicago ReDesign today with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It’s a fantastic place to find interior design inspiration including great decorating ideas for everything from beautiful foyer lights to chic decorative accessories.
Taryn recently published a post about neutral color palettes in which she mentioned that she also loves colorful rooms. That inspired me to do this guest post on some of my favorite spaces that go beyond neutral with bold color. From small pops to four walls of color, these room designs use bold hues to achieve great results. Please enjoy!
The soaring foyer in the 2011 Hamptons Showhouse is painted a bold teal that looks stunning with warm woods on the floor and curving stair rails. Both color and pattern go bold on the banquette.
Here, neutral walls get a gorgeous burst of color from a low-hung Chanel print. It seems sometimes less is indeed more when bold color meets a neutral interior space.
In this industrial style lofty space, a very neutral kitchen and dining room are kicked up a color notch with a bright red metal work island topped in stainless steel.
Chef Bobby Flay’s home kitchen started out with a neutral palette, and then came gorgeous turquoise cabinets and center island. Bold and beautiful, this is the ultimate chef-worthy kitchen. Thomas O’Brien modern pendant lights are perfect in this space.
It’s easy and a lot of fun to take a neutral palette and turn it into something really special with a bit of color like the chartreuse elements added to this showhouse dining room.
On another green note, this neutral palette was taken to another level with bold green inside the bookshelves and on a few decorative accessories. We often see white shades on contemporary floor lamps, but here a glossy green substitute is the perfect choice.
In this sunny bedroom, stripes intensify the bold yellow chosen to contrast with appealing sea blues. Just a lively happy space!
And we leave you in a traditional room with a neutral palette that suddenly goes bold with jewel-tone velvet chair and updated ornate chandelier.
