Colourful Reading Nook

Balance bold fabrics and art with classic furniture.

Mad Men actor and interior designer Bryan Batt featured this multicoloured living room in his recent design book Big, Easy Style. Black accents in the artwork, lamps and armchair fabric ground the cheerful colour scheme. Black is a great way to balance bright colours.
