for example, the lovely Fig Leaf fabric by Peter Dunham textiles - the green and white really pop against the Navy blue sofa, and help to tie in with the greenery outside the window, bringing the outdoors in. The patterns and colours are hard wearing too, which is great when you have messy kids, like I do, and the colourway she's used (this fabric comes in several colours) picks up on the turquoise accents around the home and in the other cushions and accessories in this room.
What I also love about these rooms is the fact that they are not too symmetrical. Whilst I do love symmetry in design, I think what we she was striving for in this family home is a relaxed vibe, she didn't want things to appear to formal for the family. It's all about balance, rather than symmetry in this case, which she achieves perfectly. She's not afraid to mix up her woods either - see the picture frames in the bedroom image below - again, this keeps things relaxed despite the more formal nature (roman blinds) of the window coverings etc. I love the texture and warmth the bedside cabinet brings in this image below, it's just perfect to balance out the cooler summery colours on the bed and window.
The chandelier in the dining area is so beautiful don't you think ? It's small enough not to be overly formal but the lovely turquoise colour makes it really stand out. It reminds me of some beautiful trumpet shaped flower heads.
I love the use of black as an accent colour in this room, it provides great contrast to the white walls, ceiling and other furniture. I have used a fair bit in my own home in similar ways...
