Designer Veronica Solomon put a lot of thought into even the smallest details of this living room. Here, for example, guests can see that the pillows actually have hints of orange and yellow, which complement the flowers on the side table. In turn, the space as a whole looks perfectly tied together.
The lady of the house wanted a place to stretch out and read so designer Leslie Hildebrand placed a tailored chaise by the picture window. The scaled paisley print repeats on the drapes and throw pillow.
A cheetah print pillow adds an element of surprise to this traditional neutral sofa with otherwise soft, blue pillows. An elegant black marble coffee table topped with gorgeous white lilies adds sophistication to the space.
This living room uses its furniture—leather chair, beige sofa, wood coffee table—as a neutral base on which to layer an imaginative blend of patterns. Pillows, curtains, the rug all bring in color and personality.
A neutral colored wall, white crib and white rug serve as a springboard for fun layers of pattern and color in this nursery.That the colors come from the bed linens, art and pillows means they can be easily switched out to create a completely different feel.
A bed made with beige and white linens and coordinated lime green and red pillows, is positioned in this guest bedroom in front of a black headboard and next to a black three-drawer dresser. A white table lamp is on the dresser, and a twig decoration above the bed.
To keep the neutral palette from feeling too bland, designers mixed in pretty florals and varied textures. The dressers are weathered wood. On the bed, shams pick up the delicate pattern used for the curtains.
