When you love pattern and color it can be hard to decide where to play it up and when to tone it down in your cottage home. Today’s Rooms to Love is a great example of how color and style can live together in a balanced and harmonious way.
This fabulous living room is home to style blogger Micheal Wurm, Jr. who wanted this space to be colorful, yet not too intense, so as not to distract from the beautiful architecture. He chose a neutral gray for the walls, which is light enough to blend into the background, and a crisp white to highlight the amazing architectural details in the space, like the built-in bookcases, crown molding, and decorative mantel. He also chose a light charcoal gray for the sofa and chair, again to build a neutral foundation in the space.
Now that the stage had been set, he chose textiles and accessories in a myriad of patterns and colors to bring the space to life. The largest source of color, and the main focal point, is the modern flag print area rug. Everything else in the space, like the puff ottomans, throw pillows, wire baskets, and small accessories, pick up the hues found in the rug including royal blue, electric yellow, and fire engine red.
