Light it up with neon. A room saturated in charcoal – from the walls to the paintwork – makes a gorgeous backdrop for neon colors. This electric‐pink table, along with the bright yellow artwork, pops and helps to define the room, which could have been a bit of a black hole without such an energizing color. A couple of pieces are enough, though, so the dramatic effect of the charcoal isn't lost.
If you favor cooler hues, try a palette of blue‐grays, then spice it up with hints of hot red. This is a terrific palette for an office or a kid's or teen's bedroom. The grays have a soothing vibe, but the heart‐racing red injects some energy into the space.
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.
