Bring in one large piece of colorful artwork. To pull the eye into a space and make a colorful impact, pick up one big piece of artwork and place it on a focal wall above a sofa, bed, fireplace, table or dresser.
Teal. A blue-green, teal is one of those transitional colors that can float between definitions and expectations. I love to see it paired with warm colors, as seen in this gorgeous living room. The impact of teal makes it a great complement to patterns, too, as see with the toss pillows and ottoman. Ralph Lauren combined teal with floral patterns to great effect in his spring 2012 collection. The sweetness of the florals are toughened up by the boldness of the teal.
A dark turquoise sofa is accented with pillows in fabric used elsewhere in the living room. Custom artwork made out of paint chips creates as a focal point above. The designers decided to use another earthy tone in this room and accessorized with an eggplant-colored crocodile leather tray on the ottoman.
