Pops of coral stand out in this living room’s black and white color palette. Designer Mariah O’Brien loves to begin with a white base, adding bold hues in the form of accent walls and accessories for a striking palette. Mariah’s secret? “The whites I like to use showcase the colors, upholstery, fabrics and art in the room without competing with the wall color. If and when our clients need a little change, it is much easier to change out the window treatments, pillows and accessories than to have to repaint an entire room,” says O’Brien.
