pale blue shelves bright multi-colored cushion on chair orange textured fabric (velvet) on chair? the green antler on the table. note that the lampshade and side table are rather neutral, as are the magazine holders in the bookshelf. IOW it's not an onslaught of color. Just some touches that contrast nicely and keep it interesting and happy.
House Crashing: Lovely At Last | Young House Love. Love this shelving. they look like Billy to me with doors and an IKEA lighting system. I would love to do this with my place, but have the doors that only cover the bottom half so I can store other things in there (tools, linens, etc. as I don't have built in storage for any of these).
