Work in some caramel leather. Interior designer Brandi Hagen had fun playing with her client's penchant for Western style in this sitting area off the master bedroom. A coffee table upholstered in warm‐colored durable caramel leather anchors a bedroom sitting area. Western prints, a colorful horse painting and a graphic Thomas Paul thoroughbred pillow round out the accessories, while a restrained color palette keeps things from turning too themey.
Warm up a cool palette. Raw natural materials can add a sense of calm and warmth to a pared‐down space. This wood paneling and farmhouse table introduce subtle texture and interest to the white, gray and blue color scheme.
I can't get enough of this fun and fantastic green‐tinged yellow – I've used similar shades of it in small doses all over my new house. It looks supermodern set against shades of gray and pure white. Keep in mind that if you use a vibrant hue in the back of a shelf or niche, you'll want to keep any items stored there neat and tidy, as everyone's eye will be immediately drawn to that area. Also, when you have a lot of cool gray in a space, think about including some warm elements, such as a wood floor or wood furniture, to help it feel warm and inviting.
