From the Designer’s Desk: Classic Layers

A bright, white, geometric jute rug lays the groundwork for layers of classic patterns to take shape in this family room design scheme. A classic chinoiserie scene is paired with embroidered trims and textural brushes along with various plaids, paisleys, and stripes in a range of hues to pull out and accentuate the unexpected trace amounts of tobacco brown, raspberry red, and cornflower blue in the details of the pattern. This inverts and reverses the traditional approach of a navy, red, gold, and sage green color palette to something that feels vivid, fresh, crisp, and lusciously layered. Throw in some possible grass cloth wallpaper and some blue and white pottery and existing antique pieces and we are loving where this room is headed!
