House Tour: Fun and Fresh

Stylemaker Secrets/Oh Joy
Plenty of pattern, treasured collectibles and a bit of whimsy bring life to this family home.

Filled with Personality

Colorful, pattern-driven, feminine style sets the tone in this home. Items collected over time give the living room personality. Doses of white break up the metallic gold wallpaper for the perfect panache of contrast.

Kid-Friendly & Fabulous

The living room wallpaper features one of the homeowner's favorite colors, metallic gold. To kid-proof the living room, the white couch was covered with a slipcover that is dark, patterned, and washable. A wood coffee table was also switched out for soft, wipable leather poufs. Precious glass accessories are now kept on high shelves.

Zippy Hues

Pops of color keep the house looking whimsical and inviting. A mint-colored retro snack fridge goes perfectly with color-blocked wooden bowls and teal garland.

Balancing Act

A pattern-filled master bedroom -- with chevron curtains, stripe and polka-dot pillows, and metallic wallpaper -- feels anything but chaotic. The trick? A subdued color palette keeps the room's patterns from competing and creates interest that's easy on the eyes.
