A bright pink pillow pops against the navy blue and white color palette of this eclectic bedroom. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn mixes traditional fabrics, like the floral duvet cover, with contemporary ones, like the graphic-patterned pillows.
A plush leather and leopard-print chair with a floral-print pillow sits in front of a window covered by colorful striped drapes in this formal library. On top of a lovely built-in bookshelf sits an impressive collection of autographed footballs encased in glass.
Bold hot pink walls with a diamond pattern catch the eye in this lively siting room. A green sofa sits against the pink wall and is decorated with throw pillows featuring the bright pink, purple and green hues used in the design. A leopard print rug adds a fun pattern to the space and pairs well with the tri-legged table.
The fireplace in this charming guest room already had a bird motif on it, so the designers used that as inspiration for the rest of the design. They chose a Turkish Suzani print for the duvet cover and mirrored the branch and tree idea with the table lamp.
Pattern mixing is a designer's trick for bringing motion and depth into a space. From the overscaled, lattice-like shape of the FLOR tiles to the diamond stripes of the duvet cover to the geometric print of the throw pillows, pattern is used to draw the eye up from the ground, onto the bed and up to the abstract art.
"I don't know what my home style is" says Steele. "I like fun and different and colorful." Her study in the front of the house is defined by her eclectic sense of style, with wood paneling brought into the 21st century with chic black paint and a mix of colorful pillows, leopard print and a few hot pink items illustrating Jamie's love of color.
Hot pink walls spread a diamond pattern throughout this colorful sitting room. A tufted purple bench with a circular design sits in the center of the room atop a leopard print rug. A green sofa rests against one wall, while a turquoise sofa fills a window nook on the opposite end of the room. A pair of black and white chairs completes the eclectic seating area.
Mirror covering the cabinet doors gives a unique twist on the traditional mirror setting in a vanity. A simple plastic chair blends into the scene in front of the desk area with crystal fringed lamp. A leopard print carpet adds attitude and life to the room. A bright gold chandelier with crystal details hangs above for a feminine finish.
