Classic Pick: Fabric designer Beth Poulter’s living room is a testament to her love of travel and artful layering of colorful patterns. A variety of different floral scales are mixed together, and anchored by a deep floral rug with Bloomsbury overtones.
Fresh Spin: Exuberant florals and a Persian carpet inject a freewheeling global touch, but neutral linen slipcovers give the eye a place to rest. A light floor is a clean backdrop, and wood furnishings add warmth.
