Kick up the drama in a mostly white kitchen by adding small bits of a warm dark gray. Use the gray to highlight interesting architectural elements. Then make the look fun and fresh with an accent color in a leafy shade of green.
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.
Create a tranquil vibe. The texture of this garden wall creates a beautiful ripple effect for a soothing atmosphere. Floor‐level uplights bring out the details for both a sophisticated look and a tranquil evening spot.
Mix pattern and softness. Furniture is a traditional way to add texture to a home. This gorgeous Ligne Roset sofa gives an instant sense of comfort and makes a great focal point with the fabric echoing the pattern of the brick wall in a softer way. You can't help but sit and get cozy.
A touch of luxury. Leather is synonymous with luxury. Here the touchable headboard doubles as a room divider and is offset with white cast‐concrete light fittings to keep the look contemporary and interesting.
Warm up a cool palette. Raw natural materials can add a sense of calm and warmth to a pared‐down space. This wood paneling and farmhouse table introduce subtle texture and interest to the white gray and blue color scheme.
Dot with jewel‐toned brights. This exquisitely put together living room is a stellar example of how a space with a very dark base can be vibrant. With the color palette focused on strong shades of green turquoise and mustard in light‐catching materials this dark space is an atmospheric haven.
Here's another green‐accented kitchen but this hue has more blue in it and creates a nice midcentury modern vibe. You can't go wrong pairing this pretty hue with white and light‐toned woods.
