But­ter­scotch and blue warm a neu­tral scheme.

De­signer Mered­ith El­lis demon­strates a smart way to make an im­pact with pat­tern in a small room: a stained de­sign on a wood floor. The tonal hues of the com­pass mesh with an­tique fur­ni­ture, creat­ing a fo­cal point that doesn’t jar. Like­wise, the gray-beige of the raf­fia wall­cov­er­ing forms a soft yet tex­tu­ral back­drop for col­lected pieces that nod to the room’s Sa­van­nah, Ge­or­gia, lo­cale in the

2017 South­ern Style Now Show­house. Art­work and lamp­shade fab­ric bring in the liv­able, or­ganic blues of this coastal city while up­hol­stery on the

18th-cen­tury Ital­ian chair echoes but­ter­scotch tones in vin­tage eques­trian scenes.
