We're generally not a fan of decorating in a singular color scheme. Call us crazy, but we like to mix it up a bit. We prefer a variety of colors (that go together, of course), a more layered style that seems a bit more undone. We always worry that if we're staying true to one particular color scheme, things will look too perfect, too "done." And we hate when design looks too done. There's always got to be that little something, that little detail that lets us know, "a real person/family lives here." Comfort is key, of course, but more than that, we want our homes to look lived in. This being said, we were suprised by how much we loved this room, as it's done in a singular color scheme. Blue and white rules here, there is nary a hint of neutral, or a pop of pink, in sight. It's all blue, all the time. So why is it that this room feels exciting and layered, instead of boring and staid? Pattern! It's all about the varying patterns and textures when you're going to keep a consistent color scheme. You've got iKat. You've got bone inlayed x-benches. You've got Moroccan trellis on the ceilings, and zig zags on the walls. Floor to ceiling windows help, as does that amazing coffered ceiling. The architectural bones clearly do wonders in this space – it would be beautiful even with extremely simple design choices – but there's lots to be said for a space this layered. Playing with all the different potential patterns and textures for blue and white, the space manages to pop, thanks to a plaid rug and contrasting patterned pillows on the couch and chairs. WE LOVE. Do you?
