A Touch of This Electric Color Makes the Room, Every Time — Currently Obsesssed

There are some colors that you see and think, oh, that’s pretty. And then there are some colors that you see and you just have to look at them. For me, cobalt blue is that color. I just can’t help but want to drink in the electric hue. Every time I see it in a space, even if it’s just a little bit, it totally makes the room for me. Maybe for you, too. Check out these nine spaces (and 10 shoppable products) and decide for yourself.

These Are Some of the Best, Boldest Uses of Black

It’s not hyperbole to say that Julie and Matt’s house in Culver City is a monochrome and minimalist masterpiece. Almost exclusively featuring a black and white color palette (with maybe a few wood tones), it’s a gorgeous example of how to do a lot with a little.

A One-of-a-Kind Ontario Home Infused with Fun — House Tour

Name: Julien Marit , husband Mike, daughters Kibale, Glacier and Salem. And pup Madden
Location: Milton — Ontario Canada
Size: 2,100 square feet
Years Lived In: 12 years, owned

“I believe that a home is not just a playground for living but also a composition of all who live there. I love walking into a space that has a story in the design; preferably a personal story,” wrote landscape designer and artist Julien Marit. It’s not hyperbole to say that Julien and her family have “authored” every square inch of their home, a (formerly) cookie-cutter house in Ontario. “People tell us how much you can feel the family love in our house, which I believe is due to its sense of playfulness. It’s a world of exploration that says a lot about who we are, where we have been and what’s important to us.”

So when I saw the first flurry of articles crowning something called “Gen Z Yellow” the new Millennial Pink , I couldn’t help but roll my eyes a little bit. Another day, another trend piece.

Name: John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon of Madcap Cottage
Location: High Point, North Carolina
Size: 5,000 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, owned

If there are any two people most qualified to write the bible on print and pattern mixing, it’s John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon, the dynamic designers behind North Carolina- and New York-based interior design firm Madcap Cottage . Their brand-new book, Prints Charming by Madcap Cottage: Create Absolutely Beautiful Interiors with Prints & Patterns , is destined to be the go-to for inspiration on adding layers and layers of color and pattern to a home. And the grand 1930s-era Regency-style home they share, nestled in a leafy neighborhood of High Point, North Carolina, is the patterned playground that perfectly exemplifies their philosophies on design. (Namely, that it should be fun!)
