Boyd balances everything by keeping her flooring and furniture very light and neutral. She also uses pattern in small doses but in the appropriate places. Her mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings is spot on and, speaking of spots, the dog portrait over the mantel is pretty great.
If you look closely, she is only using three colors in combination with neutrals. Blue, green and pink used in three main areas, walls, fabrics and accessories. She uses the same colors throughout the house and calms all the bold with a healthy dose of white. Balance is key! The whites act as negative space and allows you to visually breathe and enjoy the colors even more.
This image of her breakfast room is my favorite. The geometric patterned wallpaper gives just the right amount of interest to the walls and is complemented by the fabulous painting that Boyd created. Little pops of pink and a load of white create a fun and fresh space. I wouldn't mind eating here everyday.
