Patterned to Perfection - "Use a statement-making piece of furniture as the starting point for your living room decor. With neutral walls and flooring, this room gets it character from the boldly striped chair. Other patterns throughout the room feature the same color palette and echo the vertical stripes. Furniture with modern lines ensures that all of the pieces look cohesive."
This powder-blue living room is from Better Homes & Gardens. Here's how they describe it: "Colors don't need to be bright or bold to make a big impact in a space. In this room, powder blue walls and a white fireplace make a pleasant pair. Identical straight-back chairs and ottomans pull color from the walls, while decorative rosy pink pillows add a touch of warmth. For a little shine, choose a bejeweled chandelier to complete an elegant look."
Paint an Accent Wall .. personally I don't like yellow but thought this had great color combination for grand kids rooms
