Know that it's always OK to celebrate the cowboy. In this Denver study, artwork by Duke Beardsley adds Western range style. It hangs over an elegant mantel reclaimed from a Scottish castle. Sturdy leather furniture contrasts with the soft fabrics and polished chandelier.
Dot with jewel‐toned brights. This exquisitely put together living room is a stellar example of how a space with a very dark base can be vibrant. With the color palette focused on strong shades of green, turquoise and mustard in light‐catching materials, this dark space is an atmospheric haven.
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.
