In this sun-drenched California bungalow, the living room boasts creamy walls and Asian elements: a vintage bamboo chair, a faux bamboo light fixture and nesting tables with bamboo-inspired metal framing.
If you decide to go for a lot of pattern and color, let that be the focus of the room. Background elements like paint and flooring are best left neutral so great artwork and fun fabrics take the starring roles.
A myriad of textures from the fringe on the couch, to the wicker coffee table and woven carpet is an inviting spot for repose.
To give this formerly stuffy cottage more personality, this homeowner went to town splashing color, pattern and texture wherever she could. From the Moroccan graphic on the formerly beige sofa, to the touchable ottoman to the mash-up of blues and reds, strong colors and textures inject a sense of fun.
Gray wood paneling and plush carpeting set the landscape for a room with many personalities that can be calm and peaceful or modern and sophisticated.
