Exotic Escape

A vibrant mixed palette is easy to compile if you steal it from, say, a piece of upholstered furniture (the chair by the bed). Lavender gray walls activate vivid colors without competing. The dark dresser looks at home, thanks to brown in the rug. Layered patterns create energy. Choose prints of different sizes for a cheery chaos, and incorporate some solid white (like the rose pillow) for breathing space. Oddball accessories give the room character, so mix fearlessly. Ethnic touches, like the leather poufs, and vintagey elements, like the yellow table lamp, work together if you stay within your palette. Whimsical scale and placement bring a lighthearted warmth. The tiny piece of artwork over the bed and the quirky hanging lamp convey a sense of freedom and fun.
