Employing one bold hue in a design scheme can make a statement, but using two or more can be downright daring. Though some may argue that less is more when it comes to color, a thoughtfully placed polychromatic piece can double as a focal point while harmonizing other hues in the room. Interested in incorporating a multicolored item into a space without creating visual clutter? From playfully patterned wallcoverings to candy-colored rugs, Business of Home presents seven interior accents that are every bit as versatile as they are fun to look at.
MOAB WEAVE WALLPAPER — THIBAUT
The sum of the various earth tones in Thibaut’s Moab Weave in Sunbaked is greater than its parts. Use this zigzagging wallpaper to forge a vibrant accent wall or to welcome guests in the entryway with an energetic pattern.
YIN RUG — TSAR CARPETS
A hand-tufted rug in an assortment of unexpected hues can transform a bare floor into the centerpiece of a room. The Tsar Carpets Yin rug in violet alternates between swirling shades of blue, green and purple, creating a cool, collage-inspired dimensional effect.
