    According to The Cut, Millennial Pink is the 21st century shade that refuses to go away. Pink, no longer seen as a sweet shade, is fast becoming a new neutral. And Blake has mastered how to make this shade work just right in her kitchen. The deep pink wall is complemented by Nana Pink wallpaper by Justina Blakeney. The pink-on-pink action, broken up by shades of teal and green, is perfectly stylish for an interior in 2017.

    In the living room, a floor-to-ceiling entertainment unit is perfect for a home with small children. Behind the panel, stowed away is the home's television. The storage panels create a unique way to focus on other elements on the bookshelf, most importantly—the books. Extending from the open-plan kitchen, the living room eases into the color blue. A dark, burnt sienna sectional offers another unique color palette that makes this home shine.

The home office is a one-of-a-kind space. "Although I had to employ a professional electrician, my proudest DIY would be when I transformed a closet into my office. It is one of my favorite spaces in our home and so unexpected!" remarks Blake.

The saturated hue transforms this bedroom into an absolute oasis.
