Bold colors and graphics don't need to conjure up images of shopping at Limited Too with your teenybopper or Elle Woods' dorm room, these strong choices work in almost any space. Sometimes the pattern can dictate the style, but these colors and patterns work with a traditional vibe. French wing chairs in a sunny yellow or a tufted sofa in hot pink look fabulous with a zebra rug and a gilded coffee table. It works too with a mid-century modern vibe, a style that has never been shy with color or pattern. Using the bolder patterns and shades makes a space more your own. No knocks to the muted palettes, but when using a more daring mix of hue and shape, you are allowing yourself to tie in almost anything and it becomes uniquely you!
