mix of hot and cold, resonant of a Mexican cabaña.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Remember your travelsSouth American-inspired prints give a room a colourful, bohemian feel. They evoke the exciting atmosphere of travel and will add character to your home. If you don’t want to upholster a whole piece of furniture, you could create a similar look with cushions instead.
Use patterned fabric to add accentsChoosing cushions or one statement piece of furniture in an indigenous-inspired prints is a great way to set an accent without overwhelming a room with patterns. These indigenous designs tend to feature plenty of geometric designs and vivid colours, so cushions, throws or even the odd piece of furniture in a patterned print can be enough to give your home plenty of contrasting textures and capture the essence of the look.
‘Orange is an excellent colour. I find it particularly useful when bridging furnishings from different eras or of different styles.’ Langscape InteriorsConnect different elementsBeing adventurous with colour doesn’t mean it necessarily needs to take centre stage. In this room, the tangerine wall carries other elements of the space, referencing colours in the armchairs, footstool and rug and even tones in the flooring to bring the different styles together cohesively.
