So I was excited to see the redo of this 1930s art deco apartment in West Hollywood, which was featured at the Better Homes and Gardens website.
The apartment “gets a jolt of color in the form of bright paint and punchy patterns,” BHG says. “It's eclectic, fun, and full of interesting details.”
Check out this great dining area. There’s an incredibly bold mix of colors and patterns but somehow it all just works.
Even the dining chairs are mismatched, as is the upholstery.
But the colorful, striped rug and the art seem to bring the entire room together. And I love how the white bookcase and the pink curtains seem to liven up what could be an otherwise dark room.
Those pretty pink curtains continue into the living area, where a huge painted tree mural (you could do this with a decal) is the focal point of the room.
Still, that didn’t stop the owner from adding plenty of fun pattern and color.
“To coax out the interesting details, she painted them a glossy hot orange against matte-finish light blue walls,” BHG says.
“Each of these colors plays well with the rich vivid teal on the chair, a junk-store find revived with new upholstery and freshly painted legs, and its matching table, coated in shiny lacquer.”

What do you think? Is this just too much color and pattern for you?
Or would you like to try some of these ideas in your home?
