Pink Design Accents Turns a Neutral Room to WOW

Styling a room for a photo shoot is a lot like spring cleaning.    Take it all out for a good cleaning, and then, look with a fresh eye. Your instincts will direct you to do something different. Add a zing of color, freshen with new pillows,  rearrange your displays, add new exciting accessories, even rearrange the art.

In this room for Country Living magazine,  I brought in this colorful contrasting rug with pink flowers to ramp up the excitement for the neutral  palette. The rug replaced a tan sisel rug.  Drawing from the colors of the rug, it was fun to echo the pinks and red with accessories.

Adding floral arrangements always adds a statement to a room.  If you are not using the room to entertain, oversize bouquets will dramatize a room. When using the sitting area move it to a side table.
