The Fresh Look of Blue and Green Decor

Color is the most powerful tool in decorating to create a specific look and feel in a space. The right color or color combination can bring a room to life. One popular color combination that I love is blue and green because it combines two of nature’s most beautiful and captivating colors.

There is a lot you can do with this color combination. You can go bright and fun or dark and dramatic. It can be feminine or masculine, bold or subtle. It’s all in how you use it. It also looks great throughout the whole house. You have a wide range of tones and shades to choose from to make it your own and capture the essence you are going for.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of blue and green decor to give you some ideas for your own home.

Office Tour: James Cameron’s Avatar-Inspired Offices in Manhattan Beach

James Cameron is one of the most successful, well-known directors in the world currently working on the subsequent films for his blockbuster hit Avatar. When he and his producing partner Jon Landau decided to renovate their offices, they wanted it to reflect not only the look and feel of the next four Avatar films, but to also embrace the eco-friendly message behind the series.

They enlisted the help of designer Lynda Murray to bring that vision to life. The result is a completely green 100,000 square foot office that features sustainable materials and fabrics and a full solar panel system on the roof that has allowed the company to work at net-negative power for the past four years.

The offices are a beautiful representation of Pandora with some truly special touches. It’s a great reminder to fill your office with things that will inspire you and fuel your creativity. Enjoy this unique office tour courtesy of Architectural Digest.

10 Bathrooms That “Wow” with Wallpaper

Putting a personal spin on a bathroom can seem like a tall order if you don’t want to completely renovate it. Of course, you can do smaller projects like paint the cabinets, change out the hardware, and swap out the mirror. However, if you’ve already done all of that and you still feel like it is lacking the “wow” factor you want it to have, there is one surefire way to make it special:

Wallpaper.

It’s a quick, easy change that has a huge impact on a bathroom. Adding wallpaper to even one small wall or section of the bathroom will elevate the style and transform the entire space. It looks amazing in a small powder bath or even a large master suite. Plus, because there are so many options on the market, you can do something truly customized and spectacular.

Here are 10 examples of bathrooms with wallpaper to give you some ideas and inspiration.
