This room just makes me feel happy! Using these colors in a remodel of my living room and pulling them into our open concept kitchen.

I love color--I'm an abstract artist--but that much color used in that way could be visually painful in a few years. The room you show above is a good use of color. Here's an alternative: paint the walls white but have rainbow glitter mixed in to add color and sparkle at the same time (use on just the ceiling and trim or on all of the walls), then go color crazy with linens and window treatments. You could also paint the walls white and do a rainbow ombre pattern on the trim, door, bookshelves, window treatments and linens and paint the ceiling in her favorite color.

Eileen, I love the rug! My mother is looking for something. She needs a 15 x 15 rug. Does this rug comes in that size and in different colors? If so, what colors?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to The Many Moods of Leopard
Though the furnishings are traditional in style, the bold hues make this space undeniably modern. The leopard printed upholstered chair and accent pillows are the finishing touches to a lively living room.
Split ComplementsAn interesting variation of the triad is the split complement. Put simply, a split complement takes a position on the color wheel, in this case green. Directly opposite green on the wheel is red. But if we veer to the right and to the left of green we get orange and purple. Green, orange and purple are a split complement.
Kelly Porter added this to Colorful Window Treatments
In this space, the apple–green draperies are the same color as some of the throw pillows, which makes these smaller accessories stand out even more.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Runway Fashion Comes Home
Color blocking is super-duper hot now. In fashion terms, this simply means wearing different colors together. In home interiors, color blocking creates spaces that come to life. To add more color in your own space, take a worn piece of wooden or metal furniture to the next level by painting it a bold color, then place it in the room with lots of colorful throw pillows.
Paradise Punch: Bold citrus colors in gorgeous shades of greens, pinks and oranges make this room come to life. It is so cheerful here.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Be Bold, Be Brave With Color
Interior designer Eileen Kathryn Boyd is the queen of color. Her spaces always burst with bright shades that make her spaces dance with liveliness. By mixing the hot hues of orange, magenta and lime green with taming neutral shades and animal prints, the look becomes perfectly balanced instead of overwhelming.
Sometimes you don't need more than a few simple pieces to make a big statement. The side tables and pillows in this room add a pop of this rich tangerine color to this retro-inspired space.
Samantha Schoech added this to If This Bloom Were a Room
Green and magenta is a cue taken directly from the previous garden. This otherwise stately room bursting with color from the outside feels so alive.More:How to Pick the Perfect PinkMagenta EnchantmentIf This Shoe Were a RoomBashful and Blush
Shawn Gauthier added this to Hit a Bold Color Balance
Designer Eileen Kathryn Boyd is one of the color greats. She has been referred to as the “Color Queen,” and it’s rare that her spaces are void of intoxicating color done exactly right. My eye is immediately drawn to the magenta chairs and green drapery, then satisfied when I spot both colors in throw pillows and further green on the rug. She weaves bursts of orange throughout the room, and to top it off, the entire room’s color scheme comes together in a vivid piece of art.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Colorful
Style Secret: Livable Base HuesUnder a less skillful hand, this living area could have brought on a headache. But look closer, and you'll see how masterfully it's balanced. Here's the secret: The reigning color, green, is easy on the eye (partly because we're accustomed to seeing it in nature) and easy to live with. In spite of the bold slipper chairs that appear to dominate at first glance, the magenta and persimmon hues are really just accents. Color your world: Remember the color wheel opposites we talked about a moment ago? That's what this scheme boils down to — reds and greens — and that's one reason it works. But there are enough orange and purple undertones in the mix to give the pairing an entirely new spin.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Orange
Orange mingles with pink, lime, magenta and kelly green. And somehow it all works. Read on for our favorite paint picks.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Flower Power: Pick Your Palette From Posies
Greens, oranges, yellows, lavenders, purples, pinks — this relaxed, comfortable, inviting and organic approach to color is very hard to get wrong. You are simply mimicking what nature has already done.And when someone says to you — as will undoubtedly happen — that flower garden colors are meant for outdoors, not indoors, just smile indulgently, proceed to pick the palettes from nature that you love and go for it.More: Inspired by Nature: Purple and Green
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to The Unexpected Color That Goes With Everything
My third premise is that — because it’s a neutral — green goes with any and all colors. I pay no attention to the color wheel when it comes to green (or any other color, honestly). Nature precedes that tool and mixes green without compromise. I adore how the mix of colors in this room works because of the use of green.
