This green bench was discovered at a garage sale for $25. Originally covered in well-worn yellow velvet, the designers transformed it with fabric patterned in vibrant palms. Voila! A vintage piece has a new life and the foyer gets a focal point!
The chocolate brown walls of this bedroom are woken up by lime green and orange accents in the bed linens and bench at the foot of the bed. A golden starburst mirror pairs with the gold pendant light for a hint of shimmer.
This room knows how to make the most of color. The walls are light blue, fabrics feature a colorful floral pattern, and there is an eye-catching green velvet tufted bench at the foot of the bed. Crisp white bedding and curtains work to emphasize the space.
When outdoor seating has seen better days, or if you’re no longer in love with the style, redirect attention elsewhere, say, to a perky throw pillow. Choose an outdoor pillow like the Chad Outdoor Throw Pillow, $49 from Grandin Road, which will stand up to the elements — it dries in just 24 hours and the cover is removable for easy cleaning.
High contrast black and white stripes trick the eye into seeing more light in this space and create a bold backdrop for the bright, kelly green L-shaped bench. A stark white modern dining table shines against the striped walls and dark hardwood floor. A black and white vase fits the motif perfectly to display orange flowers bringing a pop of accent color.
Painting the walls in a high contrast black and white stripe tricks the eye into seeing more light than the space actually has. The black and white motif is repeated in the kitchen cabinets with added subtle touches of brass via the light fixture and cabinet hardware. A corner L-shaped bench adds a pop vibrant kelly green that works perfectly with the wall art piece.
