Check out this vibrant roundup of some of our favorite spaces and see how we like to play with the power of color!
#1 TRUE BLUE
Blue is a statement color that can read calming or invigorating, depending on the setting and the shade.
Celestia Residence Two Entryway
At Celestia, pops of blue mimic the wide-open skies overhead, while muted indigo hues in the entryway create a moment of serenity, easing the transition from outside hustle to inside haven.
Celestia Residence Two Kitchen
Meanwhile in the kitchen, blue is a fun, unexpected choice for industrial-style stools pulled up to the eat-in island.
Celestia Residence Two Great Room
In the great room, a saturated cobalt shade on throw pillows, a striped rug and art work, lends contrast to an otherwise neutral setting.
Celestia Residence Two Bonus Room
But when the same shade shows up again in the bonus room, it makes a niche feel cozy and welcoming. Talk about versatility!
Celestia Residence Two Backyard
And finally, heading to the backyard, deep, dark cerulean is the perfect color choice for an outdoor lounge, perfectly complementing the twilight skies. Get cozy!
#2 GO FOR THE GREEN
Whether it’s a trick of the color wheel or we’re cued for it by nature, all shades of green appear to harmonize together, which makes it a versatile color for layering. So pile it on!
Talus Residence One Kitchen
At Talus, a grass green rug livens up a neutral kitchen and dining space …
Talus Residence One Master Bath
… and lends a fresh streak of color to a sleek master bath.
Celestia Residence One Great Room
Meanwhile at Celestia, a spectrum of green shades, including the foliage of hardy indoor plants like fiddlehead fig and peace lily, lend a serene vibe to the great room.
Celestia Residence One Kids Room
And green shows off its high-impact side when used as an accent color in the kids’ room.
Tierno Residence Three Loft
At Tierno, a bold, bright green shade sets off the neutral-toned cabinetry of a media wall. You can’t help but feel happy in a room this bright!
#3 TOTALLY TEAL
When blue and green mix, you get teal, a range of shades in the cyan family that can read bluer or greener depending on the setting.
Lyric Residence Two-X Loft
It’s a vibrant choice for a loft wall at Lyric, where its blue side, picked up in pillows and a throw rug, is a brilliant counterpoint for black-and-white family photos.
Lyric Residence Two-X Master Bedroom
Upstairs in the master suite, a peacock-shade of teal shows confidence—you’ve got to be bold to place a statement piece in the bedroom!
Lyric Residence Two-X Roof Deck
And outside on the roof deck, teal looks fresh, showing off its full spectrum and echoing the big blue skies.
Mystral Residence One Flex Room & Kitchen
Then at Mystral, it’s greenish teal for the win, looking rich in a farmhouse-influenced kitchen and modern on a sliding barn door separating the flex room. So charming.
#4 ORANGE CRUSH
Think of orange as red’s reserved little sister—easier to live with and less likely to take over, but still fun and memorable.
Lyric Residence One-X Great Room
Like at Lyric, where it pops as the dominant shade in funky wall art, pillows and an accent chair.
Lyric Residence One-X Master Bedroom
Orange even works in the bedroom, where it feels sophisticated and worldly on a pair of pillows…
Lyric Residence One-X Master Bedroom
…and surprisingly understated-but-with-a-side-of-wow as a statement chair. Love the way that persimmon shade plays against a distressed wood dresser!
StrataPointe Residence One Dining Space
At StrataPointe, orange and magenta combine to lend sizzle to a dining space.
VuePointe Residence Three Great Room
And at VuePointe, a pigmented pumpkin shade is earthy and elegant, balancing wood elements and greenery to tie an open-plan dining and great room space together. No wonder we’re crushing hard.
