This Living Room had a fantastic rug
that we used for the inspiration in the room.

BEFORE

AFTER
When using an inspiration piece it is good to pull out around 3 colors. 
We took some blues, rust and gold colors from the rug.

(This was before the painting arrived.)
See how adding the blue really made the space feel so much more comfortable.


 
BEFORE
There were some rust colored accessories on the mantle,
but it really needed something else.


AFTER
See how the painting has similar colors to those in the rug.
The bits of blue really pull it together nicely.



As you can see some of the room is done,
but the buffet in the back on the left was not yet completed.


AFTER
Here is how we tied it in to the rest of the room.



See how we added a touch of blue,
a lamp and some natural balls.


It is so much more inviting now!

Using pillows is a great way to tie in the color and pattern.
See how one pillow is the same pattern as the chairs and the other has rust, gold and blue.
 It really creates a pulled together feel in the entire room.
