I love the horiztonal stripes in this room and how they painted the ceiling. They even have "gasp" a ceiling fan. As much as I love fun and elegant light fixtures, some rooms just need a ceiling fan for comfort.
This room has some subtle blue accents with the pillows and the flowers. Those green curtains really pop out as well.
More fun pops of blue in this room. At first glance I would think that blue and white chair is way to bold of a design, but it really works with the neautral walls and sofa.
This Old House
While the darker blues in this room aren't really my thing, they do have a lot of neat ideas in this family room. I love the rustic doors on the cabinets on each side of the fireplace. I'm not sure if the chandelier is supposed to be missing the candles though?
I remember seeing this room in my copy of Midwest Living. I believe it is a home on Lake Michigan. I love the soft blues and other muted colors that combined with the white walls and large windows create such a bright and airy space.
