Make neutrals bolder with graphic prints.
The Toronto-based designer, and host of shows like HGTV's Sarah's House and Sarah 101,
combines a horizontal stripe wallpaper with similarly striped Olivia chairs. Introducing patterned furniture in a room with patterned walls seems risky, but the neutral colour palette keeps it sleek and simple. A pair of chairs in a pretty colour are a good investment, too. Choose a colour and fabric you absolutely love, as it will not suffer from the same wear and tear as a couch.
