As a designer I am passionate about mixing the old with the new. I also love to use a simple white or neutral palette and then add a strong punch of color and pattern as an accent to a room. These are both great examples demonstrating how to do that! Notice how the designer also added the yellow accent to the wall on the built in bookcase? It’s the little details like this that take design to a whole new level and bind color to your space. The details make an ordinary room, extraordinary quickly turning it from Drab to Fab! LOVE it!!
