Style Your Home with Pattern, Color, and Texture! Video 2 of 3


– [Announcer] With your host Sheryl Borden. – [Kimball] So I have some more examples here, and this is a living area, which it’s a more traditional feel. – [Sheryl] Uh huh. – I’m gonna pull some of these samples up for you. So I like to start with the rug first. – Oh. – Because that really… – The bottom. – Sets, sets the foundation. Thank you. So
here our main colors are dark reds rust colors, and greens. And the underlying concept or theme for this space was a botanical feel. – Oh ok. – So the homeowner really likes leaves and
flowers and that outdoor nature feel. – And he has skylights. – It brings it inside. – That’s right and you also want to think
about the, the actual light. So in this space there’s a lot of natural light. – A lot of light. – So you don’t want to really, want to do
heavy dark colors ’cause it feels kind counter-intuitive to the natural architecture of the space. – Oh okay. – So we’d like to treat…keep things light,
but still add a little punch of color here and there. So we have next to
them, here’s some close up shots. So here’s the dining area, to the right. – Uh huh. – And I’m going to show you a little more
close-up of that. – Oh, uh huh. – So you can see, so we have our– – It’s the chair cushion. – Beautiful dining chair fabric and now there’s
no draperies in this particular situation because the homeowner
really loved the view and didn’t want to cover anything; but if you wanted
to do something you could use something like a really thin linen sheer that
has a really subtle… – And it’s got that botanical look, it’s got
the leaves. – That’s right. – You’ll be carrying that out. – And when the sun shines through this, it’s
really going to wash it out so it’s going to be a very subtle, floaty color. – Mmmm – And the wall color that’s there on the window… – Oh how gorgeous. – Is this color right there, so you could
do that or if you’re not really a ‘sheer’ person you could use something
like a woven grass shade notice the nice texture it gives. -Uh huh. – Again it gives, again it really adds a beautiful
natural outdoorsy feel. – And sometimes it nice to use this, I would
think and so something doesn’t become so feminine. -Yes. – If there’s a couple living there you want
to bring in some elements so that he sorts of feels like he suppose to
be there…[laugh]. -That’s right, that’s right you’re not gonna
make it all pink…[laugh]. – Right…[laugh]. – So, then we have our table that I put with
the burlap covering because it’s mahogany and I felt with all that dark
mahogany that the chairs and the dining table was a little too heavy for
the space. – Lightened it up, uh huh. – Right cause we had talked about how it was
a lighter space and then moving over to our sofa… We have a close-up
of the sofa area. – Oh is that a leather or…. – Yeah. – …Suede or something. – So the sofa is actually wrapped in leather. – Umm. -And then there’s… – Oh it’s got the green I just now see the
cushions, uh huh. -Yeah and then the actual cushions here. – Uh huh. – It’s done in a linen velvet and a linen
velvet is a really durable fabric. It’s gonna wear… – Wears well. -Yes and it still has a really elegant feel
to it. – Uh huh, all these colors are just looking
wonderful together. – Oh thanks. Green is my favorite color. – Well I kinda like it too [laugh] so you’re
starting with the floor and you’re building up from there. – That’s right. -Uh huh. – So we have this color and then the color
behind on the wall there is here, so we have this soft green with a creme
color and then we have the sofa with the leather. And then we have our
drapery with our… – Uh huh. – …Dining chair fabric, the burlap and then
now all that’s left is to add some fun accents. -Oh. – And we also have our swivel chair here,
which is– – Oh there it is. – Right here. – Uh huh. – This kinda of tan color and I like to bring
in again we have kinda more light airy feel with botanicals and it’s a
linen. – Now what would you use these for? – These you could do for your throw pillows. -Oh okay I was thinking, how is this going…
I see now. – Yeah, so this would accent on top of the
swivel chair. These would be your throw pillows and then for your sofa,
because it’s a bigger, bulkier sofa, you can afford to do a fabric that feels
a little heavier. And you can either choose to go more in this tone for
an accent which picks up the red… -Uh huh, I like that one. – Or there is a little bit of blue in there
or you could even do both. – Yeah, it really pulls the blue out. I didn’t
see any blue in there, but I do…. – Yeah, it’s really subtle… – Now that you put that with it, uh huh. – And if you like little tassels and fringe
this could go on the burlap tablecloth. – Which it also softens that up a little bit. – It does it adds a little interest too, in
movement, instead of it just being a sharp edge. – And then for one last item in the space,
something most people don’t think about for texture, which is not necessarily
a fabric, is using plants. – Oh yeah, uh huh. I just think that every
room almost needs a plant. – Yeah. – It just, it just… maybe it is because it
brings the outdoors in. -Yeah it really does. – It just looks nice. – And they’re wall-mounted and you never
have to take it off and they just grow right on the wall. – I see, very good. -So then we have, so that’s our living area.
