This curved red banquette has an air of boldness. Combined with the kitchen's white cabinetry and light yellow walls, the red bench cushion and chairs have a distinct modern feel. The statement-making mod light fixture adds another fun element.
The designer created a neutral backdrop, starting with nearly white walls and several upholstered pieces in neutral shades of tan, grey and cream. Creating a room with a neutral base gives you flexibility with accent colors and allows you to change things up when you get bored.
Surrounded by chairs and popping against the clean white interior, a distressed blue coffee table serves as the focal point of this family room. To make pops of color stand out even more in a neutral room, repeat bright colors only a few times, such as in one or two pieces of artwork or accessories.
