Kristen was able to give her modest 10-by-12-foot living room a high-energy, sophisticated look by sticking with flea markets for staple pieces, then updating them with color. The walls were painted a dark blue tone from Benjamin Moore called Black Horizon. "I love using dark colors to create backdrops for my pieces," she says. "The canary yellow bamboo chair and the pair of turquoise end tables really pop against the blue. Plus, the navy blue makes my abstract art look even better!"
