So subtle that it reads as a neutral, citron accents lighten up the indigo draperies and sofa in this living space. The leather storage ottoman in place of a traditional coffee table is the room's secret weapon, adding a shot of energy and edge.
Blue is the accent color in this space, helping to ground a lively palette that includes shots of poppy pink, lemon and tangerine.
Citron can be too energetic for bedrooms, but in this one, deep indigo calms down the wall and coverlet hue. Dark, handsome woods add gravitas and spin the space in a masculine direction.
The pattern, more than the palette, grabs attention first in this bedroom. But when you really study it, you begin to appreciate the details that infuse dark blues and springy greens in an unobtrusive way.
Brilliant green layered with moody blue creates a one-two visual punch in this room: The wall in the foreground pulls the eye in, and the wall in the background appears to recede, for the illusion of greater depth.
Sometimes a dash of color is all you need for impact. Inky blue chairs with citron pillows anchor the fireplace wall and give a little weight to the airy feel of the space.
I'm all for turquoise. But if this space were mine, I'd swap out the chair on the right for a second indigo version — the contrast of that rich color with the luminous citron walls is just too arresting to resist.
