Color Planning

If you already have a piece you love, use it as a starting point for a room makeover. The pair of green armchairs was the only color in this living room before its dramatic transformation, but they set the tone for the rest of the room's style points. The apple-green leather chairs eased the introduction of other colorful accents, such as the raspberry pouf and lamps, as well as a new teal armchair. All of the colorful elements together create a horizontal swath of color across the seating area, so the eye is drawn across the room to take in all of the beautiful elements within it.

When you are working with numerous colorful accents and accessories, consider whether you want to go all out and apply a bold color to walls or you want the walls to be a secondary feature. Here, a gray-tinted beige coordinates with the sofa and area rug and serves as a soft backdrop for the gorgeous colors throughout the room.
