Bright hues and bold patterns merge happily in this Darien home

Fear of color was not an issue when Pavleta Landjeva designed several rooms in a classic Colonial—starting with a Mets baseball-themed bedroom for a 12-year-old boy. “The challenge was to incorporate the team’s blues and oranges and not allow the hues to overwhelm the space,” says Landjeva, who offset bold orange and white stripes on the bedroom ceiling with neutral walls.
Things calm down considerably in the children’s study where the walls are painted three shades of lavender, and a custom daybed with a quatrefoil cutout is flanked by bookcases backed with a soft green wallpaper. “It’s not a large space, so we had to keep things quiet,” she says.
In the master suite, gray-blue drapes with a hint of green establish the soothing color scheme. Predominantly sage-green embroidered bedding, and a chaise sporting a beige-and-blue-green print follow suit.
Bold hues return in the owner’s study where a painting of a garden scene inspired the cheerful pinks and greens repeated on pillows piled high on the banquette, and the quatrefoil motif reappears on a pair of bright-pink chairs. “They’re feminine and floral, and the perfect way to pull everything together,” says Landjeva.
