Think in Color Families, At first glance the home's entryway looks like a riot of color, but after talking to Mele you realize he was actually working with a tight palette. “I wanted a lot of white, first of all, and then a mix of blue and orange,” he reveals. The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. His blues included “cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted.” Blue & White Always Works, For Mele, using a combo of blue and white is like “wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy-blue blazer and a white shirt. It never goes out of style.” The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, Mele used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual. “I think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white; it's just not as fierce,” says the designer. “It's more welcoming to most people.
Play with Layers and Textures. Nothing says comfortable quite like layers and textures. One of the easiest ways to make a space warm and inviting is by layering furniture with throws and pillows. Add knitted covers, fluffy pillows, pillowcases with fur, wool and mix them with simple materials like cotton to create the perfect contrast. And of course, nothing says cozy quite like fur, and faux fur options are even better! Whether it's a carpet, throw, or wall hanging, the fuzzy material will give your home a pleasant and toasty feel. This space uses a variety of textures and layers to create a warm, cozy feeling. Knits and textures have a way of making you feel cozied up at home, and there are so many ways to incorporate them into living spaces, across the bed like this or even thrown over on an armchair or couch which adds instant a touch of soft luxury. The fluffy pillows are also such a great textures that create softness and coziness.
