One of our favorite monthly reads is House Beautiful's Instant Room. Each month a different designer provides a 1-2-3 step look for pulling a room together with different colors and fabrics. The designer will discuss his or her inspiration and will provide several fabrics to choose from to create both furniture and accent pieces. Check out October's Instant Room after the jump...

This month's Instant Room was created by furniture and fabric designer, Peter Durham. Peter began with a colorful paisley print and offers multiple fabrics for 2 additional categories - upholstery for furniture and accents. Simply choose your favorite of the 3 and there you go - potential color scheme, look and tone for an Instant Room. Plus, the designer will suggest which fabric goes best with what furniture or accent piece.
