Earth tones and blue: a winning combination

Located in the coastal city of Le Baule (France), this spacious family home designed by the architect Julio Valiela proves that blue is the hue of peace, tranquillity and authenticity, even more so if combined with earth tones. Moreover, the absence of any door to separate the main living areas of this house gives spaciousness and allows for entertaining and interaction between family.

Blue living room decor

The main protagonist of the living room is undoubtedly the large compact L-shaped sofa, which occupies most of the space without being excessive thanks to the colour choice. In this regard, the pearly white combines perfectly with the blue tones used in the cushions and the carpet and the almond shades of the wood effect tiles and the shelves. However, it is also worth mentioning the fireplace and its decorative relief, which brings class and elegance to the house.

Modern dining room art

With white walls full of pieces of contemporary art, this part of the house is not only a symbol of good design but also an example of functionality and usability. The table acts as a passageway between the kitchen and the living room, easing traffic flow and creating a more spacious feel.

Stunning wine cellar

Who hasn’t ever wished to have a wine cellar at home? Well, now you have the chance to surprise and entertain your guests in the best possible way: incorporating a wine bar into your living area. This way, you will be able to make wine tastings and have dinner with friends, enjoying one of the most special drinks of the world.

Blue kitchen cabinets


Your kitchen cabinets do not have to be always white. Go bold with the blue tones and get an extraordinary result, full of personality and charm. Proof of this is this classic-style kitchen, which combines blue cabinets with black granite countertops, a combination that will leave no one indifferent.

Elegant wooden staircase

Combining light wood stairs with glass handrails, you will get a bright, breezy, modern feel. Even more so if you add linear LED lighting to the different steps. In this way, the light will flow freely across all the floors, with nothing obstructing the view.

Bathrooms with earth tone colour scheme

Each of the five bathrooms in this house has a particular style that sets it apart from the rest, but they all have one thing in common: the colours used. The architect has chosen earth-coloured and stone effect floor and wall coverings for all of them; an option that provides cohesion and makes the most of the possibilities of ceramic tiles: their variety and versatility.
