Beach Vibes “Happy Neutrals”

Fun to blend printed patterns into your neutral mix with subtle pops of color that do not overwhelm your space. Great update if your looking for a more natural way to add pattern to your home focusing on subtle color alternatives like mixing taupe with blue and grey!

When mixing patterns in your home it’s important to balance the ratio of solid color as it acts as a buffer between patterns…

At Design Works International, our focus is pattern but we like to share tips for those who are new to mixing pattern in your home and feel that these images are a great example.

This inspiration comes from 2 locations in Sag Harbor Long Island: Beach Bungalow on 26 Main Street and Fisher’s Home Furnishings on  144 Main Street.

Pillow Perfect-Subtle Updates

By Nancy Fire

Trying to find that perfect update to a simple solid sofa….try subtle accent colors and fresh graphic prints with embroidered dec pillows like these beauties I spotted in NYC at Barneys Home! Taupe, navy and white…a winning color combo for this updated yet classic style.
