Sailing near to neutral but with a swell of uplifting blue hued accents, these two modern home interiors are serene and mood-boosting spaces. Featuring a range of complementary tones, from bright cobalt to pale pastel, blue decor details provide a modern palette that’s full of positive personality. Looking beyond the colour story, we explore room interiors that are styled with contemporary furnishings and balanced with a classic infusion of chic wall moulding. Grey, white and wood tone make calm companions for blue elements in our first home tour, whilst our second home design is injected with contrasting bolts of yellow that serve to exaggerate the dominant blue theme.
Located in Moscow, Russia, this 54 square metre home is a modern space that’s coloured with a serene spectrum of blue, pale greys, white and light wood tone. Bright cobalt blue throw pillows add jolts of vibrant colour along a grey upholstered sofa, whilst pastel blue paintwork envelops a classic panel moulded feature wall with an unusually camouflaged door.
A modern wall sconce illuminates a reading corner at one end of the L-shaped sofa. Contemporary track lights run in tandem along each side of the ceiling.
A round coffee table expands the pale grey element onto a plush blue living room rug. A simple glass vase and a couple of coffee table books adorn the top.
The small open plan living space includes a two-tone kitchen with a comfortable dining peninsula. Beige cabinets create visual weight at the base of the kitchen installation, whilst fresh white cabinets lighten the upper half.
Modern ceramics and a clear glass carafe cleanly accessorise the white kitchen countertop. Indoor plants spill from a set of open shelves above.
A trio of black kitchen pendant lights coordinate with four black kitchen bar stools positioned around the dining peninsula. A modern fruit bowl makes a useful centrepiece.
An open doorway leads to the home entryway, where a mirrored closet creates the illusion of added space and light.
The mirror-fronted closet also takes away the need for a wall mounted mirror, which leaves the remaining wall space free for a set of decorative wall hooks. The coat hooks protrude from a fashionable slatted wall treatment that is painted to blend with a buttery-beige accent wall.
