A splash of colour

I was leafing through Canadian House & Home and came across this fabulous mix of colours. Aren't they great?

I've said it before, but I really do like wallpaper - imagine having a client who is daring enough to use this..... the orange chairs are a great addition too:

If you don't add pattern with wallpaper, how about the rug:

I like the way the designer has added the dark hue on the wall and then still goes for a strikingingly bold rug.... and take a look at that cheeky yellow side table:

I'm not convinced this would be the most relaxing room to hang out in but it sure adds a punch:

I like the subtle colours in this room. Very chic but still colourful:

Look at the wallpaper and the blue splashes of the lamp and chair:

The door colour and rug really add a crispness to this space:

The red lamps and the bold graphic chairs really work well together here:

The painted red dresser is a bold touch but it works with the curtains and blanket at the bottom of the bed. I like the large mirror and over-sized vase too:

The brown sofa and chairs ground the space but the pink silk pillows with the blossom design and the soft shaded rug work nicely with the lucite cocktail table which disappears into the space:
The purple sofa is a little daring but paired with all the accessories it looks very much at home and inviting. Again, notice the lucite table:
It's hard to really see the wallpaper to the left of the photo but it is very loud - the table and chairs seem to calm the space and add a touch of glamour:
