A mix of high-and low-priced items and high-energy colors make for a striking living room. The slipcovered sofa opens up to reveal a full-size mattress. Seagrass wingback chairs and a rattan runner offer a touch of the tropics and a mix of patterns on the curtains and throw pillows creates visual interest.
One of the most classic ways to add a touch of spring to any room is with yellow and green. Instead of a pastel yellow, choose a vibrant shade of yellow such as lemon or canary and mix it with a grassy shade of green.
Two chairs and a small side table sit on this outdoor patio area, surrounded by ornamental grasses. The green and yellow-tinted landscape looks stunning against the charming red home in the background.

Need an ornamental grass for a spot with light shade? Check out autumn moor grass (Sesleria autumnalis). This non-native grass gets its name from the show it stages in autumn. That’s when tan seedheads appear, standing well above the clump of bright green leaves. Drought-tolerant and easy to grow, autumn moor grass holds its own in a mixed planting bed, adapts well to containers and makes an eye-catching planting en masse. Cut clumps to the ground in winter or very early spring. Plants grow 1 to 2 feet tall and wide. Hardy in Zones 4-8.
The beauty of a neutral space is its ability to morph quickly with a change of accessories -- in this case, grass-green towels and rug.
