We've been working on a client's living room where a lot of the big pieces were neutral choices (the sofa, the rugs, the tables, the consoles, the lighting and mirrors - all neutral colors). In the first phase of the install we were all feeling good, but had to keep giving each other pep talks about how it would all look much better after the second more colorful layer goes on. :)

We've since added colorful pillows, art, lamps, and a great pair of side chairs inspired by this Jeffrey Bilhuber photo. Let me tell you - those chairs completely transformed my client's room! (so excited to get this project photographed)

If you're on a limited budget and can only change up parts of your living room, I would invest in some new pillows for your sofa (here are some color/pattern ideas) and a new chair or two. These are some easily available and affordable options:

1  //  2  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  6  //  7  //  8  //  9

10  //  11  //  12  //  13  //  14  //  15  //  16  //  17  //  18

Have you seen any fab accent chairs lately? I'm always on the hunt! They might be my favorite home item to shop for. Next to lamps. (And art.) (and pillows...)
