In the decoration of a room or a house, the use of color establishes a mood, and the incorporation of pattern provides dramatic energy.

In this 1970s bedroom, an abstract blue floral pattern print was lavishly used in a formal setting for the bedspreads (quilted — as were the two ottomans at the foot of the bed), the window coverings (blinds, curtains and cornices), and the comfy padded armchair’s slipcovers.

The use of the pattern on the window shades as well as in the draperies was effective in establishing a balanced contrast between the areas of solid color and the spaces filled with pattern.

The soft, low-pile Wedgwood blue wall-to-wall carpet provided a perfect foil for the blue, beige and white print.

White accents harmonized skillfully with the blues in the room, while a round glass-topped table provided useful space for a lamp and other items without altering the room’s color scheme.
