Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: Color and Scale Ideas for Comfy Compact SpacesJan 4, 2014

Color is equally effective in small homes when used on furniture and accessories rather than walls. The deep orange of this side chair and the lime-green pillow and lamp make this room pop with joy.Also note that the window and door trim has been painted a strong contrasting color. Unexpected hues on trim, beams, windowsills — even radiators — can create depth and visually expand the room.

ShapeIf the base is round, it will look best with a round shade.

A Moebius side table sets the mid-century tone here. But the contemporary art, bright upholstery and accessories make the room bright and unique.

Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: ColorfulMay 26, 2012

Style Secret: Judicious EditingIf you crave a hit of color but aren't so sure about pulling out all the stops, take heart: A space can still read as colorful even when the surfaces are mostly neutral. This living room, though grounded in creams, browns and beiges, is anything but bland, thanks to the red chair and ottoman, the green accent pieces and the bright artwork. Color your world: Because colors perform differently in relation to other hues that surround them, a neutral foundation can work to your advantage. Against the pale walls, for example, that red chair really pops. High contrast leads to drama and energy, and that's part of what a colorful room is all about.

Cate West Zahl added this to Indoor Gardening: Herbs and SucculentsOct 13, 2011

There's so much color here that seasonal flowers would most likely compete or clash with the scheme. A grouping of succulents, however, is a living, organic accessory that complements the bright choices.

The Mobius Table from DWR. Oh, those table legs! The neighborhood will be talking about how cool this table is. It’s mid-century retro contemporized by a glass top. Pair it with a neon lamp and brightly upholstered furniture. and the neighbors will go from talking to drooling.
