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.
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.
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.
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.
A hint of the red wall peeks over this close-up view of neutral bedding with floral, striped and plaid patterns. A white throw pillow with an applique of red and salmon floral beading accents the bedding while blending perfectly with the wall color.
