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.

    I would have to say that the classical example is more my style.

    Love that wallpaper!

    The “classic” is a real living space. The fresh spin looks like a studio set-up. The wallpaper is lovely though. But I’d appreciate this editorial approach with a more equal footing.
