Current Passion: Rich, Colorful Pieces

We love the bold, dramatic pieces we’re seeing this year in upholstery, rugs, and artwork.

These upholstered pieces make such an impact in these pretty rooms. Quite often, you’ll see these sofas and chairs upholstered in a velvet fabric because the colors look so rich and pretty in this fabric.

A deep and rich rug will brighten up any room and ground your room in the most eye-catching way. It’s also a great way to add some depth and dimension to the room.

Artwork is the perfect way to embrace this trend – it’s easy to change and high impact! It’s also a great thing to start with when designing your room – find a piece you love and use the colors throughout the design of the rest of the room.

You don’t need to overfill your room with these rich and colorful pieces – just add one or two to a room and you’ll reap the benefits. This room will feel fun and vibrant – and it’s a great way to break up the neutral decorating that most of us tend to gravitate towards.

Here’s a mood board of rich and colorful pieces available through by Design! Let us know if you see anything you like here…we’d be happy to send you more information!

We’d also love to help you create a rich and colorful room of your own… call us to schedule your complimentary in-home design consultation today!
