Designer Leanne Ford keeps the look interesting in this white living room by mixing new and vintage pieces and using a compelling blend of materials—wood, ceramic, fringe, baskets, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
The entryway of a Tudor-style home features ferns, vines and a floral wreath. Antique wicker furniture was painted charcoal gray to match the trim. The furniture is covered with black and white Sunbrella fabric trimmed in garden green. The bright green is repeated on the wicker stool and the fringed pillows.
Pairing these black leather chairs with a mauve wall gives the color a lavender-like finish. Throw pillows in mauve tones create a beautiful color balance and soften the seating. Tall potted plants and coffee table plants add vibrant natural complimentary color. The gallery wall and chandelier finish the feminine feel of the room.
In this elegant living room, neutral sofas are set against milk chocolate walls for gentle contrast. Fringed throw pillows match the paisley armchair for a cohesive look. Framed botanical prints and a potted palm add a hint of tropical style to the mix.
In addition to pattern, texture is equally important. Whether it’s from a shaggy rug, fringed out blanket or sumptuous throw pillow. Also, adding one small touch that’s really personal or even playful helps to give a room warmth and personality.
This pale pink Victorian sitting room is a hub of floral furniture and curtains in front of the pink and gray striped wallpaper. A camelback sofa has throw pillows with a matching pattern from the upholstered wing chair and sits around the round, tufted ottoman with a fringed bottom. The tasseled pillows mirror the tasseled floor-length curtains for a fully patterned room.
The master bedroom has been designed to be a restful retreat. A mix of carved elements, Chinoiserie lamp shades and custom pillows have been used to craft a room that feels like a Parisian getaway. The pink pillows on the bed were designed by Camille. The ombre fringe in shades of coral and purple adds a colorful touch to the bed.
Gray panels highlighted by nailhead trim create a soft yet stunning feature wall in this contemporary bedroom. The gray upholstered bed is dressed in simple white linens with zigzag pillows to add pattern and texture. The bench at the end of the bed features floor-length fringe trim, an unexpected touch to the room.
Pink pillows and a pink plush throw add color to a room that is made up primarily of grey tones, from the light grey walls and chairs, to the dark grey drapes. A round white coffee table sits in the middle of the room on top of a gray-fringe area rug, creating a stark contrast.
