From baby to navy, cool blue remains a favorite color for family spaces. Call it a neutral.
This freshly decorated outdoor pool house is saturated in color. Cool blues are accompanied by bright white and silver to create a soothing space. An over-sized painting by artist Gary Simmons adds a cool blue graphic punch. The horizontal lines of the sofa fabric and pillows are another bold move.
The Hickory Chair sofa and nail-studded hassock are upholstered in solids, while the chair and ottoman are a large geometric Lee Jofa print. Textured brown fabric on the second chair grounds the room. Instead of sisal, a thin striped rug was selected – an excellent choice.
Love the color, but feel too much of a good thing is anything but? Touches (or should I say spots) of blue appear in artwork by Damien Hirst. The vibrant canary yellow club chair cushion is piped in black and repeated in the pillow, color pulled from the layered zebra-skin rug. Playfulness was interjected with the Tibetan goat pouf, a contrast to the traditional mantel. Woven wall covering adds yet another texture to this fun family room.
