Why Don’t You…?

… play with color in your favorite space?

On paper, this room sounds like a bit of a mess: peacock walls, blood orange ceiling and a teal couch. That’s a LOT of color. But you know what? It completely works. Due to a healthy amount of natural lighting, bold accessories and coordinating artwork, this cozy living room is as stylish as it is saturated.

A few tips to make it work?:
1. Don’t underestimate pattern. By mixing patterns and textures, the living room feels less like a graffiti wall and more like a well-designed hideaway.
2. Get neutral. With wooden end tables, a jute rug and hardwood floors, the room feels balanced in all the right places.
3. Accent! Throws, pillows and artwork are the perfect opportunity to marry colors that might not carry the room alone.

Happy color blocking!
