Often the use of bold colors throughout a home can peghole it, placing it concretely in a particular time era or feel more trendy rather than timeless. If nothing else can be learned from interior designer Meg Braff’s work in this new Southampton home it is that color can be elegant and subtle when used in proportion to neutral hues and paired with the most complementary textures and furnishings.
The clients were not afraid to dabble with color, as art collectors they embraced the use of orange, blue, yellow and green throughout the home, and in so doing created a space defined by Braff as “sophisticated and elegant, with character and personality”.
I especially gravitated toward the sun-drenched breakfast room (seen above). The jute rug provides a neutral base while the white trimmed green-print wallpapered walls lighten the room not only in color but in the mood. You’ll notice that jute flooring is the theme throughout which I think is something to consider to provide the balance with the use of such a variety of beautiful color choices.
