Chaotic Understanding

"Don’t be constrained with references and ideas. Let your mind wander."
—Dickie Bannenberg, Bannenberg & Rowell Design

Yes but don't go crazy either! This is what my favorite sister-n-law would call a HOT MESS. If it wasn't for the center collage no one would understand what the idea was. Choosing 6 colors to play with, was a bit much for this adult room. Then to throw in a coral chair and a burgundy zig-zag pillow, well I'm shock that this was one of Architectural Digest suggestion as a "Top 100 Design Tip". Maybe, as a do not! Stick to a max of three colors and find pieces to decorate in the same color family either darker or lighter shades
