The living room in Pam & Bryan's Comfortably Creative Family Home has the perfect mix of neutral and bold. By keeping the walls and trim light and bright, the couple is given a lot of leeway for getting creative with furniture. Mixing a neutral boxy sofa with wild patterned chairs creates a playful look without overwhelming.
Of course, this is just a jumping off point for inspiration. You can shop around at flea markets and secondhand stores for wild patterned chairs and basic neutral sofas to achieve the look on a budget.
