Su Casa: A Brave Color Combination Pays Off

For today's Su Casa, I wanted to show off a winning room from TeamSugar's Show Off Your Casa challenge. (Want to share your photos? Here's how to join Su Casa.)

Tylermarcum — who, judging from the photo, appears to be a big fan of CB2 — made a bold choice here putting this baby-blue couch against a mustard-colored wall. But the results are truly beautiful and not the slightest bit off-putting. Also, I love the light fixture!

To see another great photo of the living room,

Tyler, what is the exact color you chose for the walls? I just love the cool undertones and how you chose to use the baby blue for an accent instead of more bold colors. Also love the shelving and the picture frame to the right of the couch. Bravo!

I'm not crazy about it. It reminds me of something I've heard here quite often. Don't buy everything for a room from the same store (or that looks like it came from the same store).

Love it! Love the colors & all, everything looks great! As for the A/C not everyone has Central heat & air & I would rather be cool then the house look fab. Wonder what color they put on the ceiling? I hate white ceilings & in fact all mine are colored, I have a dark purple in the kitchen a bright blue in the living room & so on through out the entire trailor.

The coffee table is IKEA! One of the sides folds down for easy storage.

I once had a room that I kept in very dark, warm colors - it was a great room - everybody visiting liked to be in there. Very cosy.

This is the exact color of my livingroom!!!! After living in rentals my whole life and the color "antique white", I used very bold colors in my house......The diningroom and kitchen share walls of denim blue and deep terracotta. The masterbedroom is a light sable brown. The masterbath is a shade of rose found in every sunset and the main bath is a barn red. Our guestroom is patina. Everywhere I look I totally love love love the colors!!!!

Not to stalk or anything, but here's a snippet from tylermarcum's page: "***SEE my apartment on HGTV's "SMALL SPACE, BIG STYLE" October 25th at 6pm!! YAY!!!***"

I love everything about this room because of its BOLD color but yet, it feels cozy and warm at the same time. I don't know if I have the confidence to pull such color and arrangement off :) (I'm so jealous too because I know my hubby won't go for bold color, he likes his beige and neutral :() The sofa looks soo very comfy, but stylish, I like that style, modern but comfortable, now I can just convince my hubby to replace our living room set....:D P.S: HGTV? Which show?! Whoa, that's real awesome.

I love the couch and the light fixture. I'm not big on bold colors on walls but this does somehow work.

The tealight fixture is from last season's ILLUMINATIONS catalogue. The usually carry an array of tealight and votive holders. Yes I LOVEEEE chocolate and the avacado color combo! We just added a chocolate side table in between the couches. Love it!
