Turquoise touches. If you’re too nervous to stray far from a neutral, choose just one shade you love (and keep the walls a calming beige, as seen in this living room) to dip a toe into the pool of color possibilities. Sleek style. mad men-esque furniture looks slick, but inviting, when paired with a cozy stone fireplace and lots of wood embellishments.
Navy walls, give beige a break. Dramatic hues can drench a large living room, like this inky wallpaper. The deep blue provides a surprisingly neutral backdrop. Comfy seating, your style may be posh, your furniture can still be cozy. Plush sofas and armchairs rule the roost in Ellen Pompeo's L.A. home. "It`s fancy in a cool way, not in an 'I can`t sit there´ way," she says.
Family-friendly. Yep, white furniture can work in a house with kids. Just choose durable fabrics (a leather couch) and surfaces (the plastic rocker, the lacquer table) that wipe clean easily. Statement rug, the key to subtle color lays at your feet. A patterned carpet plays up the neutral furniture in a New Jersey home, while a similarly-hued pillow adds another punch to the armchair.
