With an ocean-blue ceiling and walls, this breezy kids' bedroom takes after the 2008 HGTV Dream Home's Florida Keys location. Blue and white stripes in the bedskirt, wicker chairs, flowing canopy and curtains add a playful pattern and break up all the solids. Snapper Pinky Cotton Candy, a painting by local artist Stacie Krupa, gives the space a vivid burst of color.
Horizontal stripes work well in more casual spaces and can trick the eye by making the room appear wider with a lower ceiling. In this sitting area, a melon paint color — sharply contrasted with white — is used to create a bright and airy sitting room. Long drapes and layered fabrics make this plush sitting area the perfect place to lounge.
