romantic cream and light blue living room with chandelier

This cream and light blue living room is so interesting yet so soft and serene. What makes it interesting is the different patterns and textures, not to mention the leopard print Victorian chair and seashell mirror frame. Despite this unusual combination, the color palette brings it all together into the most calm and beautiful space.

gorgeous classic mirror

Geometry 101, lol! Love this pretty mirror.

*

romantic style home office desk

Pretty desk for the nostalgic.

*

seashell curtain

I love this idea of using a shell curtain in place of a shower curtain. Not as effective, but undoubtedly prettier to look at.

The shell curtain. Like snow flakes, yet far from it..

I love how Kim combines ultra classic with super modern. You wouldn’t guess there would be a zebra skin rug in this living room from looking at the top pic, would you?

Floral Fabric

Gorgeous floral fabric in all the colors of summer! On a different note, whenever I see glass grapes I am reminded of Kitty Forman on that 70’s show, where she expresses content with her home, especially since she has the obligatory glass grapes on her coffee table.. anyone remember? lol! okay, anyway, the pretty fabric is from Sanderson Fabrics!

Light and Layered Home Design

I am absolutely enamoured with this home designed by Janie Hirsch:

*

light blue and cream contemporary living room

Light blue and white living room with sisal rug. Look at all the classic furniture pieces and beautiful artwork. Janie definitely use contrasts to add depth to a room.

*

light blue contemporary living room with cream curtains

Janie is a real talent when it comes to lighting, notice how all the artworks are illuminated in a way that they stand out as individual pieces, and at the same time binds the room together. This is very well illustrated in the top pic too.

*

light blue contemporary living room

It is so impressing to me when a home is designed in one simple color theme, like here with light blue and white, and yet all the rooms are so different. Behind the living room you can see the kitchen and dining area. See how the different curtains separates the room into two “zones”.

*

dining area light blue and white contemporary

Just gorgeous! That ceiling lamp is so pretty with the beads on the cable.

*

light bue dining area with brown curtains

Divine dining room with sheer brown curtains. Notice how Janie always hangs the curtains immediately under the ceiling, emphasizing the height of the room. Also, she often opt for two chandeliers over a dining table instead of one, that way you can decorate the wall behind with a large mirror or painting, and use one tall centerpiece on the dining table. The beams on the ceiling adds a third dimention to this room, read this great article about it on Things That Inspire!!

light blue and black contemporary kitchen

Going for black cabinets in the kitchen is such a bold and creative choise!

*

light blue and cream contemporary bedroom with lage padded headboard

The focal point of this bedroom is definitely the super tall padded headboard.

*

light blue contemporary bathroom

Stunning bathroom with more than enough lighting. I love how she mounted the sconces on the mirror! Not everyone has artwork overt the tub either.

Don’t you just love the quirky color combination in this home office? The room is white, with the trimmings in a tender blue-green. The real kicker is the yellow! This is the kind of room where you wander around, discovering new details all along. What about the goat under the desk? and is that a door in the dresser (last pic)? The design is by Honey Interiors, check out a few more pics from this awesome room here!
