Designer Jil Sonia McDonald mixes funky patterns with unique pieces to create comfortable and eclectic dining spaces. In this one, a wide window seat offers banquette seating in a dining nook. Remove the breakfast table and its the perfect spot to sit and read. A mix of throw pillows, in orange, white and solid green, and a bold orange bench cushion animate the space, while built-in drawers offer extra storage below. An orange and white chevron throw adds the finishing touch.
A wall of glass provides ample natural light in this eclectic living room. A white sofa and a white and gray graphic rug pair with an orange chair and a sculptural floor lamp. Blue and orange throw pillows provide a pop of color.

A bold orange accent wall creates a bright backdrop for the navy details in this boy's bedroom design.

Orange pillows and upholstered cube stools tie the accent wall into the design.
