Followers of DesignAddictMom Stacey Blake know that she’s never met a color she doesn’t love: The Fayetteville, North Carolina, blogger is all about them, and the brighter the better. Her home is a shrine to the whole Pantone wheel, but it’s also an ode to her family and her style—Stacey designed it herself!

When she and her husband wanted a forever home after years of the military service, they knew they had to sell the house that their family of five (baby Cheyenne was born last year) was quickly outgrowing. Working with a Realtor®, a member of the National Association of Realtors®, they were able to get their old house in new hands and move on to the house of their dreams.

And you’d better believe that Stacey was up for the challenge. Here are five projects that show off her punchy, bold style.

Blushing Blue Exterior

The outside of Stacey’s home, which punctuates an unexpected light blue with a bright red door, cues you to expect some colorful fun. And the inside does not disappoint! The couple used a traditional builder when building their house. “I think I scared him with my choice of color,” Stacey told us, “but now he uses it on his new houses.”

Lush Living Room

That green! Stacey painted this tall space herself in Benjamin Moore’s Tarrytown Green. The darker hue makes such a huge space feel warmer, and the richness grounds the brighter colors throughout the house.

Cheerful Dormer Nursery

Is this cozy nook not the sweetest spot for baby snoozes? Stacey smartly defined this space with wallpaper that (of course) packs a colorful punch. Can we sleep here too?

Sneaky Closet Office

Instead of a full-sized home office like you might find in spaces of this size, Stacey just wanted a private spot with enough space to write down that great idea or post her next Instagram photo. “I use it every single day,” she says.

Custom Chalkboard Art

Stacey’s husband is the artiste behind the whimsical drawings in the kids’ playroom. (When we visited, it was an aquatic wonderland.) Chalkboard walls are a great way to help kids get creative in a way that’s easy to clean up.

Working with a Realtor®, Stacey was able to sell her old home and make the custom house of her Technicolor dreams a Technicolor reality.
