Bringing in color and pattern via upholstery, rugs and accessories allows flexibility in a room's design. This sitting room perks up the mood with a striped rug, red-and-white armchairs and pops of green.
Vibrant jewel tones fill this living area with energy. The boldly patterned armchairs in the living room pull in the beautiful green walls of the adjacent dining room. Bright red accents are lively punctuations to the scene.
This living room is a playful mix of colors and style. A red patterned curtain plays off the overstuffed red armchair. A commercial sign listing Boston neighborhoods serves as industrial wall art. A chevron rug and an avocado green record case as end table storage complete the color- and decade-mixing fun.
A wall panel is upholstered in a white floral pattern. The same floral pattern is repeated in an upholstered headboard, armchair and the bed's dust ruffle. A vintage green dresser doubles as a nightstand and breaks up the overwhelming floral pattern.
Who's afraid of mixing patterns? Not these armchairs, with their leopard print cushions, monogrammed pillows and cherry red piping. Keeping all the prints in the same black, white and red color family makes the wild combos work.
