A Fresh Whole-House Look

A neutral update keeps this home fresh, soothing, and flexible.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Fresh Look

      Classic furniture gains flexibility with neutral upholstery. The addition of bamboo shades and three-toned draperies adds dimension and texture to the living space.

    • Formal Seating

      Cushy living room textiles start with the pale cut chenille sofa upholstery.

    • Living Room Tips

      The draperies' vertical stripes add height to the room. Have a radiator cover to hide? If it's a well-made piece of furniture and you like its shape, our designers recommend painting it the color of the millwork. If you want it to blend into the background, paint it the same color as the wall.

    • Three Flavors

      A closer look at the living room draperies reveals a light to dark spectrum that prevents the room from feeling milquetoast.

    • A Dramatic Switch

      Pumpkin orange is unexpected and fresh, but serves as a warm neutral in the dining room. The walls have a Venetian waxed finish that gives them a deep, luminous glow. The chandelier adds a modern twist to the space.

    • Creative Color

      Simple panels of a hand-printed damask add punch to the color scheme in the form of turquoise and acid green highlights. The artwork and acid green faux-suede seating pick up on these bright hues.

    • A More Relaxed Spot

      Another hand-printed damask refines the cozy family room and inspired the chamois wall color. The sofa introduces chocolate brown, a neutral that relaxes the space.

    • A Blank Canvas

      The simple wall color and furniture upholstery leaves plenty of room for spice in the orange-print Roman shades and woven throw.

    • Sunny Spot

      A watercolor influenced the use of hot hues for the sunny breakfast nook. The faux-suede chairs are primarily used around the dining room table, but are easily transported to this space for a cozy snack or morning meal.

      Calm Oasis

      To keep the guest room soft and feminine, this room uses beige-and-blue toile as the dominant theme but carries an ethereal blue to the walls. A headboard upholstered in ivory linen adds even more elegance to the space.

      Creative Coordination

      A large valance made of inverted, hanging pleats neatly frames the bedroom reading nook. Using one fabric for all the accents allows the wall color and furniture shapes to pop.

      Feminine Florals

      The fabric pattern of vertical flowers gives the illusion of height to the low-ceilinged room.
