Fun and Fresh Decorating

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

A Happy Place

Colorful, pattern-driven, feminine decorating drives the style in this home.The living room is where her family comes together and is filled with favorite finds.

Stylemaker Tip: Collect along the way. If you fall in love with a pillow, lamp, or other type of accessory, don't think about buying the piece, just get it.

Kid-Friendly & Fabulous

The living room wallpaper features one of teh homeowner's favorite colors, metallic gold. To kid-proof her living room, she covered a white couch 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.
