A well designed room comes from layering; colors, textures and patterns

We layered color, texture, and pattern to make this room a sophisticated, comfortable and family friendly space.


Our base color was chocolate-brown; we selected a brown suede loveseat, antique sled (coffee table), and rug to set the tone of the room. We then used neutrals for the wall color and the ottomans. The third layer was white linen curtains; they add a light and airy feeling to the space. Hot pink Ikat chairs, fun patterned pillows, and art, add the pop of color, and last layer of our design.

I have broken down layers of the room along with the resources.

  1. We have two Greek-key trimmed ottomans, purchased at www.simplyhomepage.com.
  2. Art is often overlooked, but it is an important component to a well designed room. This is by Andrew Faulkner www.studioepartners.com.
  3. The Dash and Albert indoor/outdoor rug from www.celiabedilia.com anchors the room.
  4. These pillows by www.mainefabrics.com add just the right amount of punch to our loveseat.
  5. The paint is Benjamin Moore: Danville Tan,  www.benjaminmoore.com …my favorite.
  6. I think this filing cabinet is wonderful looking and so useful. It came from Home Goods www.homegoods.com.
  7. Our pop, comes from the wonderful pink Ikat chairs, They are from Home Remedies (our go to store)  www.mainefabrics.com they are so sexy! They can ship these chairs anywhere.
