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.

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.

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.

The living room is often the first room that visitors see when they walk through your front door, and the space sets the tone for how guests feel about the rest of your home. Your living room is also a place for entertaining friends and relaxing with family and its design should reflect that. While making the space physically larger would involve expensive remodeling, there are many ways to make the room look bigger that are simple to execute and budget friendly.

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.

This can be anything from a feature wall to a mantle, or a bold piece of furniture that creates contrast with the other walls. Another option is to add a contrasting accessory. Look for an object in a style that differs from the rest of your decor. For example, if you primarily rely on traditional pieces, try something avant –garde like some modern art. If you prefer minimalist modern furniture, choose something that’s traditional, such as an antique armoire, as your focal point.

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.

You can’t alter the location of your walls without a construction crew, but using living room decor that emphasizes the wall’s height draws the eye up and makes the room appear bigger. To accomplish this hang floor–length curtains close to the ceiling, use tall bookshelves to compel guests to look up or install crown molding.
