Starting off spring with bursts of color, flair, and surprise is one way to get a head start on trends this 2013. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard stripped Elton John’s Los Angeles home and gave it a whole new look – bold blocks of color, patterns, and all while using lots of white!
So how did he do it? How about starting off with a base of white or light gray for walls, trim and even furniture. Then choose a few colors you adore and use them for your rug, coffee table, art work, and cushions. Martyn used a glossy pink over sized coffee table and a black and white zebra rug in the living room. In another space he used a white rug, but amped up the color with a bold green sofa. Are these new design rules exciting or what?
