I love tackling pattern play’s for clients. Many times clients come to me with neutral spaces and ask me to help push them a more colorful direction. You know I’m always ready to do that!
This client reached out with a neutral living room. You know white couches, taupe walls, sisal rug and some leather accent furniture pieces. It was the perfect backdrop for me to work my color magic on.
Here are the fabrics I proposed:
1. The main inspiration fabric was the citron floral number. It’s called Magical Menagerie from F.Schumacher. For someone that might be on the fence about floral patterns this is a good fabric to try. It’s not full on flowers just little peeks of it and a sprinkling of animals that gives it a little touch of whimsy. This fabric is for pillows.
2. For the window treatments I gave them two options. Option one is the blue ikat that is Kiva Embroidered Ikat from F. Schumacher or Viva Acapulco from Robert Allen, which is part of a new collection from Madcap Cottage. It’s works perfectly with the colors in the floral fabric and I love the little faux tassel look to the fabric and the white background.
3. You know I love to add a little elephant to any space I work on. I love the idea of using Bazaar in Clementine by Lee Jofa. The mix of pink and orange help pick up the pink in the floral fabric that you might have missed upon first glance. It would be a nice addition to sofa as a pillow.
4. Lattice work in Vermillion by Kravet adds a nice graphic touch to the space and since I’m a bit tried of trellis I like the idea of using this lattice brick like pattern. It’s modern and fresh.
5. Accents chairs will be coming in dressed up in a preppy stripe. Instead of going with a traditional stripe I like the idea of using Capri by Schumacher to reupholster the caned chairs in their space. It will be an easy upholstery job and the variety of stripes will add a cozy and relaxed look to the living room.
6. To zhush up the floor I recommend leaving the sisal rug and re-upholstering the leather ottoman with Malatya by Clarke & Clarke. It has a beautiful Persian rug look to it and brings together all of the colors already in the space and adds a touch of plum that would be nice to bring in with accessories.
I’m in love! Luckily they were too! Can’t wait to see it come together?
