Color Palette: Cobalt and Gold

If you've read any of my other posts, you probably already know that I'm a big fan of color in interiors. It's a powerful design tool that can completely transform the look and feel of a space. Color can be used sparingly to create accents throughout a room, it can be used liberally to create a bold statement, or multiple colors can be used together to create a unique and personalized look. There's almost no limit to what can be done with color.

There are so many color combinations that I love. Some are classics, others are a little out there. This week I'm featuring one of my favorite color combinations--cobalt and gold (hmmm, I wonder where I've heard that before...). A variation of the classic blue and yellow, I love the deep, yet vibrant shade of blue mixed with bright, shimmery accents. This color combo is very versatile, working well in both light and darker spaces.

This kitchen is fantastic. I love the cobalt blue cabinets with the gold hardware. They look great with the light marble. It's incredible that even with the deep shade of blue, this kitchen still feels so light and bright.

I love all the different shades of blue along with the gold and yellow accents. The black and white striped floor is pretty fabulous too.

I love the glamorous vibes of this dining room. The gold chandelier is fantastic. I love the chairs too. The blue velvet with the white trim is awesome. Even though there's lots of deep blues in this room, it doesn't feel too dark.

Another fantastic kitchen! I love the built in table off the island. The gold table legs look great with the cobalt blue chairs. I like the lighter shades of blue on the wallpaper and the curtains. It makes the room feel a little more dynamic and not dominated by one color.

There are so many great things going on in this space. I adore the coffee table. Metals are often used as accents, but I love seeing a gold furniture piece. I also love that the ceiling and the trim are the same color as the walls.
