Perhaps you love the idea of stripes, blues and greens, but you don’t want your space to feel overly casual or nautical.

Instead of the traditional blue and white stripe, this contemporary space has two shades of blue on the walls and is peppered with blue and green furnishings.
Another variation on this approach: Mix green and blue in the stripe. Contemporize the look even further by painting the stripes in different widths. An orchid in a blue vase pulls the green and blue colors into the space, and manages to sneak in just a hint of that fresh maritime feel.
