How do you create a cohesive look like this with so many unrelated colours?

That's interesting that you think of them as unrelated. In my eye I can see the slight variations of the same hue. It's like working off of one big paint chip from dark to light. I usually ground the room however in a neutral and then use stronger shades/tints of said neutral to provide contrast. Then I choose my accent colours and add these in at least in three places.

I usually find one fabric that acts as the mediator containing all the colours so each pattern or choice in the room has something to refer back to. In this case, the rug is that piece. I'm careful though not to match my hues perfectly. The green on the benches isn't in the rug. This creates the necessary tension to make things feel interesting & cohesive without your eye getting bored & reading it all the same.

Does that make sense? Great question thanks for asking!!

Thanks for the great explanation. It makes sense, looking again at the photo. I really like the space you've created and I feel like I've learned something quite valuable that I can use in my house! :))

Are the ottomans square? Can't tell for sure in the photo. Do you know what size they are? Thanks.

I bought it through a Trade Showroom that just so happened to have it on the floor but it is reorderable through our firm. Arteriors (also to the trade) has a very similar one. This one I believe retails for about $400 but the one from Arteriors is considerably more. The one from Baker is even more expensive.

Thank you for your question. I don't have the measurements handy. What sort of project are you working on? I find that dimensions from a picture don't really translate too well from space to space. Too many variables. That's why hiring a designer even to just consult can really help you with your project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Houzz Tour: Dream Home in Toronto
Heron adds hostess stools to almost every job. "When entertaining, the host rarely sits, but when they do they can pull up one of these little stools for a quick chat." More home tours: Craft Modern Taste of Bali in Austin Living in Color Georgia Glam in California
Lily Gahagan added this to Idea of the Week: Hostess Stools
These spare seats offer a place for the host to perch for a moment before alighting back to the kitchen, refilling drinks or changing the music. As Heron describes it, "When entertaining, the host rarely sits, but when they do they can pull up one of these little stools for a quick chat."
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Plan a Just-Right Living Room Layout
Keeping things to scale. All of the designers here emphasize the importance of furniture size in a living room. "Correctly scaled furniture can make or break a room," says Austin, Texas, designer Allison Jaffe. "Having too much room or too little room can really throw off the look and feel of the space."Just because the size and scale of a piece looks right in a store doesn't mean it'll feel right in your living room. Larger rooms require larger furniture, and smaller rooms require a smaller scale. But above all else, make sure whatever you buy is comfortable too. "Select furniture that fits you," says Schumacher. "Try out different sized pieces. We've found some people prefer larger furniture they can curl up in, and some people prefer more petite furniture."
If you have a fireplace, make it the focus of the room. Arrange the furniture in an intimate arc, rectangle or square around it. And remember, you don't have to be facing it for it to be the focus.
