A Bright and Bold Family Home in Connecticut

This wonderful family home on the Long Island Sound in Connecticut has such a cheerful mood. Designer Lee Ann Thornton chose a blue and white colour palette as the starting point for the home's main rooms, to bring a light, coastal feeling to the spaces. 

I love the various blues used in the rooms, ranging from soft to bold. The lounge's yellow accents among the blue and white are like rays of sunshine. I love the daughter's fabulous green and pink bedroom (that headboard!), minus the fluffy white fabrics (they're a bit much for me, sorry). My favourite room would have to be the dining room, with its custom blue Gracie wallpaper and mirrored tiles above the fireplace. It is just so beautiful. Let's not forget the gorgeous deep blue butler's pantry. That colour is amazing. The groovy patterned fabric covering the walls and sofa in the family room is pure genius. I just want to sink into that sofa and watch a classic movie.
