Aqua: Finding Balance

“Being bold is all about balance,” designer Khristian Howell says. In other words, don’t use aqua on every surface in the room. It doesn't take much to make an impression, especially in a room full of grays, creams, and whites.

Aqua in This Space: In a light-filled breakfast nook, aqua is still the starring color, even though it is used spairingly. To give all of the colors in the palette play, consider adding them as temporary elements, such as napkins and dinnerware that will work with the aqua but not overpower the light space with color.
