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.
Avoid having fans directly above seating. Ceiling fans cool in the summer and improve air circulation for heat distribution in the winter, but rotating blades aren't psychologically comfortable to have spinning over your head. Even if they're securely anchored, many folks feel apprehensive sitting directly beneath them.Locating a ceiling fan central to the room but over a circulation space or even a coffee table, as shown here, is a better approach. Maximize greenery for better health. The decor in this room is gorgeous, but the fiddleleaf fig in the corner is what leaves a lasting impression. It's well-known that plants are good for our well-being, boosting our moods and cleaning the air. Not bad for a comparatively small investment that also adds a lot of natural beauty.
Despite storing very little toys in this room, I wanted it to evoke peace and play. To achieve the peace, we kept a mostly neutral color palette with a pop of warmth from the wood and the leather couch. I also tried to keep the decor as minimal as possible (which helps when we have a bunch of tiny humans over). People keep asking what we'll hang above the fireplace, but I'm not sure that we'll hang anything. (Or maybe we just haven't found the perfect thing yet.) If this room were a profession, it would be a therapist. This is the space we bring our messy lives to. I wanted the room to be able to handle it. Of course, this is where we have fun too. I wanted to implement visual fun as a reminder. So we keep Hal's rocking horse out all the time. Kev named him Polo. Hal calls him Whole-Low and drags him all around the house.
