“Mix and match” seems to be the name of the game. Shabby chic is very popular. (For example, using spray paint to revitalize yard sale finds.) Beiges, baby blues and greys are popular for furniture colours, as are using accent colours to brighten a room and to create a dramatic statement. Throw pillows in bold patterns and colours are used to ‘pull the look together’. It’s easy to change accents and pillows to give a room a new feel – rather than recovering your furniture.
