This bedroom is a study in how to use different intensities of the same color. Sky-blue stripes on the bed give this ocean-view room a nautical touch. Royal blue paint on the walls is strategically extended to the edges of the ceiling, setting off the super pale blue it surrounds and adding dimension to the space. Bright white throughout ties it all together. Every time you use color, incorporate a lighter shade of that color as well to balance out the color scheme.
