An Unexpected Palette

I saw this room on Instagram last night (designed by Allison Elebash) and found the palette of medium/ light blue and blush to be really unexpected in a family space. I would typically think of these tones as too sweet and baby-ish to pair together in an adult space, but it TOTALLY works and looks fresh and interesting!  The painting by Sally King Benedict certainly adds some grown up funkiness, and the woven textures of the sofa ground everything.

So I started thinking how great this mix would be in a guest room or beach house bedroom.   I saw this great rug from West Elm and started with that as the base and then built from there with layers of blush and blue.  This look could also work great for a tween/teen room or a nursery– but totally stands on its own for a grown up too!  By using softer colors like this in combination with texture and clean, modern lines you help soften the overall feel of the space.
