Design a Room Around This......
I LOVE watercolors and there are so many beautiful colors to be inspired by. I often try to impart on clients the idea that keeping your staple pieces neutral is a good idea, this way you are free to change your design easily and without spending a ton of money
This fabric is so gorgeous I would love to reupholster a chair such as this:
If you have a solid colored sofa in tan, brown, taupe, white, olive, grey, blue or even a golden yellow you can add
in a fabric like this with other colorful accents to make a fun, springy design.
I would add some warmth to the design with metals and warm woods. Use metal lamp bases instead of glass or porcelain, mirror frames that are oxidized instead of painted and find a few interesting metallic accessories
and dont be afraid to mix your metals, thats what gives design some personality, just dont go bananas with it.
add something textural: like a sisal rug on the floor, a wooden bowl with a considerable grain pattern like this birch one found at borisbadinovs etsy store borisbadinov
