Boy's Nursery Features Peacock & Yellow Polka Dot Roman Shade
Not the nursery we grew up with, Pattern Play is a result of the client’s love of graphic patterns and color. This long room lacked architectural features. What seemed like a negative became the perfect playground for the offbeat mix of patterns, texture and color. By turning the room upside down (stripes on ceiling), designer Karen Wolf created a focal point, leading to the giant window showcasing the star of the room -Dwell Studios “Brushed Dot” fabric with peacock and yellow polka dots. The main challenge in the space was a balancing act on how to make all these patterns and colors work.
Tricks of the Trade:
1. Create a focal point in the room.
2. Pop your accent color at least three times around the room. Note the mustard yellow.
3. Ground your space with neutrals to provide a place for the eye to rest. (Crème shag and gray Jim Thompson textured wallpaper).
4. Use black, white or gray. There is always a place for these classic colors. Ferm Living Half Moon Wallpaper.
5. Change up scale of patterns. Medium sized wallpaper print, large stripes and small bedding prints.
6. Mix up the patterns: Circles, Stripes, Brushstrokes, Chevron, Ditsy, Solid and Abstract.
7. Throw in an unexpected color – Red art.
8. Play with sheen and lustre, high to low.
9. Have fun and let yourself go. Design is a layering process and sometimes you need to delayer, start over and layer again. Mistakes happen and that is OK.
A neutral palette is used throughout this Texas ranch home to create a warm, welcoming environment. To create a space that is visually interesting, a mix of natural textures, from the rustic woods to the knubby fabrics, is used.
Soothing beige walls contribute to this living room's calming ambiance. The color coral is put to good use here via the throw pillows and armchair, keeping the room from feeling too neutral. A chevron rug adds a quirky final touch to the space.
A caged chandelier, textured buffet table and striped rug put a fresh spin on the formal dining room. Patterned wallpaper balances out the wainscoting and helps bring the space into the present as well.
This great room can easily accommodate a crowd, what with its open kitchen, formal dining space and nearby sitting area. Wood paneling overhead draws the eye to the mountain views and helps the modern interior feel a little more connected to the wilderness.
White walls, large windows and a pretty pendant ensure that this kitchen is bright and airy for meal prep. Meanwhile, a cheerful blue accent wall, wood island and plaid stool all give the space a charming country touch.
Graffiti wallpaper is a perfect backdrop for this kid room, colorful and complimentary to the loft's urban location. A daybed with lots of built-in storage is a smart addition, cozy for the room's usual residents and helpful for sleepover guests!
