Unify furnishings in a spectrum of colors with the accessories you choose. Chairs painted in primary colors pull together as a dining set when they share solid red cushions and rainbow-stripe pillows.
The home's exterior creates the perfect starting point for this patio's color scheme. Orange accents, such as throw pillows, hanging fabric, and oversize letter B, pop against the green exterior. Wood candle holders and potted plants bring the natural elements of the yard onto the patio. With plenty of seating and multiple tables, this patio is just right for enjoying bright summer days and warm summer nights.
I like the basket next idea for next to the rocking chair. Maybe it could be where the cat and dog toys could live. A cover would make it a great hidden storage and it would be in easier reach for us to play with them. If it was strong enough we could sit on it and it would double as a place to put on your shoes when going out the door.
Different Room, Same Ideas Even though a kitchen is called upon to be highly functional, that doesn't mean it can't be stylish. Display artwork like you would in a living room or bedroom and dress the windows with fashionable treatments. Consider using an easy-to-wash fabric for your treatments so you can wash them from time to time and prevent the retention of cooking odors.
