There’s a reason why people associate the sea with tranquility and relaxation: the colors of the seaside–pale blues and beige–are naturally soothing for your body and mind. You will be able to relax more easily when you feel like you’re in a natural setting that reflects the essence of the oceans. Paint your walls a soft blue and layer natural textures on your bed in order to recreate the look and feel of the seaside. Keep your floors raw and simple, and use weathered pieces of furniture to give your bedroom a timeless feel.

To give your room maximum design effect, go beyond painting the wall a selected shade. There are many bedroom paint ideas and techniques to customize your room. If you’re feeling adventurous, add some depth to a wall by attaching wall molding in rectangular or square shapes before painting. The wall molding adds a unique dimensional effect to your bedroom. For contrast, choose a different paint color for the molding.

Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island. Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar–seating option, adding low–profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.

Bamboo grows so quickly it’s a good, sustainable source for flooring. Besides the eco–friendly aspect, bamboo’s strength is one of the highest of the natural materials on the market. Cork is a good kitchen flooring idea for a unique texture and a padded feel underfoot. Cork is a natural insulator against both temperature change and noise, making it a good choice if you’re worried about either issues. It’s naturally anti–microbial, thanks to a waxy substance in the cork, which repels insects and pests.

If you’re craving a more dramatic aesthetic, look for bold wallpapers as either an accent wall or an all–around covering. Find a duvet cover that has patterns in the similar colors to complement the look. When using bold patterns, go with vivid colors like bright reds, yellows, blues or oranges; this helps make the patterns pop and gives your bedroom a distinctive look and feel.

Ue one flooring material, such as wood or carpet, throughout your living room and adjoining rooms to visually expand the space and create flow with your design. In that same vein, avoid interrupting the eye with contrasting floor coverings. Use sofas and cabinets with legs, so the floor fades under the furniture rather than stopping suddenly at a wall of wood or fabric.

While there are millions of color combinations, some of the more popular include black on bottom and white on top, or bold colors on bottom and neutral on top. You could also contrast colors between wall cabinets and island cabinets. Energize your kitchen by painting your cabinets a bright color, such as emerald, cobalt or golden yellow. Be conscious of how it will coordinate with the wall color and fixtures in your kitchen, as well as the rest of your home. With vibrant cabinets, you’ll want to stick to light and neutral wall colors to keep your space from becoming too dark or busy.

Use them in front of your most attractive decor, such as flowers or rich drapes or windows, to reflect beauty and please the eye. Avoid using a mirrored wall, which can look too retro and alter your aesthetic. Instead, rely on one large framed mirror propped on the floor, or group several smaller mirrors on a wall.

To keep the finish looking fresh and new, seal wood countertops with a durable polyurethane and use trivets and cutting boards to protect the surface from heat and marring. If you’re looking for a countertop that develops a rich, blue–toned patina, zinc is a good option. Zinc reacts over time with water, oils and citrus. The reactions are what create the beautiful, rich patina that is the metal’s signature. Zinc countertops are best left in their natural, matte–finish state.
