Blue and Brown ~~
The perfect pair ~~~ and, of course, they should be, after all it’s everywhere in Mother Nature. Blue and brown is, quite wonderfully a match made in heaven. Light and airy hues, dark and rich shades, or a combination of the two. This dynamic duo can jazz up any space.
A BOLD GUEST ROOM – The rich, dark chocolate brown wall is a stunning backdrop for bold accessories. The striped wallpaper, above, is an element of surprise. That fifth wall is the perfect spot for an opportunity of whimsy. Bringing in the orange accents really livens up the space.

BLUE AND WHITE BEDROOM. Shades of blue enhanced by white and grounded with brown in a bedroom for a young adult bedroom. Do you remember who this bedroom was designed for? (Hint: Remember RHONY). Love what they did with that fifth wall, the ceiling, great graphic.

DREAM TEAM. Interior Design: Hèléne Aumont. Well, I just love this entire space, those high pitched ceilings with wood beams. The drapery hardware that mimics the arch of the window, the fabulous sectional in that deep oceanic teal blue, flanked by chocolate brown club chairs, the tiered chocolate stained coffee table and overlooking all the blue and chocolate brown, is a gorgeous iron chandelier, embellished with teal blue crystals. And, I spy with my little eye, what looks like a Robert McDonald bronze dancer sculpture posing in front of that fabulous picture window. It’s all so beautiful!
