In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
This nursery features a convenient striped upholstered daybed with a trundle. Several throw pillows decorate the bed, while a yellow floor lamp provides an additional pop of color. Teal two-tone walls and a hot air balloon mobile complete the look of the space.
The red-striped pillow on this kitchen banquette was made from an antique French flour sack, but you can create a similar look using vintage dish towels, says author Susan Sully. For a weekend craft, make no-sew accent pillows with the dish towels or another fabric of your choosing to add color to your kitchen.
A wood bed frame is topped with yellow and white striped linens and covered with matching pillow shams. A single red throw pillow laid over two gray pillows adds another pop of color. A touch of red is repeated in the graphic art hanging on the wall. A gray rug with a swirl design softens the hardwood flooring.
This guest bedroom is filled with charm, with a pink striped bedspread, blue and gray textile accent pillows, modern sunny yellow side tables with contemporary reading lamps, and a modern photography wall art.
