Use bold color com­bos to cre­ate exciting, clas­sic, time­less rooms.

Pop Pretty

Color and pat­tern are the keys to de­signer Meg Braff’s fa­vorite looks. This room pairs blue and green in shades that are low key but highly sat­u­rated. Bal­anced out by white walls, the ef­fect is en­er­getic but el­e­gant de­sign.

Don’t mis­take bold de­sign for dar­ing choices. Meg Braff’s Dec­o­rated Home: Liv­ing with Style and Joy proves that there’s no age limit to dec­o­rat­ing in a fun and fresh way. Braff, known for her vi­brant and ef­fer­ves­cent style, bal­ances grace and charm with de­sign that’s color­ful, mod­ern, yet pretty. Our fa­vorite rooms from the book take safe col­ors and push the en­ve­lope by us­ing them in big strokes. They prove that you can pack a punch with pink, go gaga with green and still cre­ate chic, so­phis­ti­cated and time­less dé­cor.

At­tic Oa­sis

The wall­pa­per isn’t the only thing that gives this at­tic con­ver­sion its get­away vibe. The grass green pops against the white-painted wood finishes and earthy sea­grass floor cov­er­ing, cre­at­ing a fresh twist on tra­di­tional cot­tage de­sign.

Crazy for Coral

This preppy room takes the love of blush pink to whole new lev­els. By keep­ing the frames and sil­hou­ettes of your big-ticket items like the so­fas and chairs sim­ple and clas­sic, you can turn a girl­ish color into a gor­geous de­sign state­ment.
