    These throw pillows were custom for our client. However, the fabric is LuLu Lawn in Green/White, and Alan Campbell Saya Gata on White.

    Forest green is especially effective as a worn-in paint treatment for woods. This chair appears almost black at first glance, but the rustic green gives it a much softer, cottage-inspired vibe that looks beautiful even in an urban apartment.Curtains: Robbins Hill paisley admiral fabric, Ralph Lauren

    Higher-quality indigo blue was imported to Europe from India in the 16th century, replacing the blue popularly made from the woad plant. Indigo is a deep, saturated blue that holds its color more than earlier versions did. European kings, especially the French, favored it. Indigo is now a common part of our daily life, appearing in everything from jeans to textiles. It’s a bit exotic, a bit true American, dressy and casual at the same time. It works well in a multifunction room such as a family room, where you might host a cocktail party one night and a game night another.

    1. Think through potential color pairings in advance. A colorful sofa or armchair can actually be quite versatile, although some colors are easier to work with than others. Blue is a great starter color, because we are so used to seeing large expanses of blue — think blue sea and sky, or indigo jeans. Your blue couch could work with fresh greens, as shown here, but when you get bored and want a change, you could also pair it with yellow or rich chocolate browns, to name just two other colors.Order a sample swatch of the upholstery fabric you are considering, and use it to window shop a few different potential looks. If you can easily find several options for throw pillows, rugs and so on that go with your upholstery fabric, that's a good sign.

    7. Cut summer energy costs. Keep window shades and curtains tightly drawn during the day to maintain a cooler temperature indoors — exposed windows will heat up your home like a greenhouse. Be sure all window air conditioning units are tightly fitted, with no cold air escaping. For those with central air, setting your thermostat to a higher temperature while you are out during the day will help keep costs down.
