With neutral walls and soft, natural wood finishes, the tangerine fabric of an Arne Jacobsen swan chair pops in this modern, Mid-Century-inspired living room. Orange pillows carry the chair's fun color onto the neutral sofas. The extra-tall swing arm lamp and low-profile coffee table with exaggerated casters add quiet pops of whimsy.
Plum tones are great for using violet in a more muted manner. For an unexpected twist, try pairing this tone with touches of tangerine, as seen on the bolster pillows in this vibrant space. Magenta pillows and throws match the dividing table lamp and compliment the wall hue while adding a deeper shade to the room.
