I love auctions but there also great online resources for on-of-a-kind pieces. Everything featured here is from One Kings Lane or 1st Dibs… two of my favorite virtual stores.
Think in terms of blending two colors being mindful of the hues. Use subtle hues on large furniture pieces and carpets. Then add in smaller pieces, pillows, and accessories in more intense hues.
Stay true to your two color scheme so mixing and matching various furniture styles is simple and provides for the ultimate ‘acquired over time’ look.
Finish off the space by dressing your windows (up or down) with complimentary window treatments.
