This retro 70s “everything room” could easily host parties and after-dinner coffee — it was a family room (or living room) with definite pizzazz.

Created for a Manhattan apartment home, the interior designer used lots and lots of blue patterned fabrics, aiming for Asian-inspired decor.

The main pattern — navy blue and yellow design on a medium-blue background — was tented on the ceiling, shirred on the walls and matching lampshade, and applied in the traditional manner for some of the sofa’s throw pillows.

The secondary fabric was a blue and white check pattern that almost looked like an upscaled denim knit, and provided a little space between the various lengths of curtain and wall fabrics.


The sofa and upholstered chair were covered in a totally different fabric — an abstract blue drizzle stripe on white, which meshed well with the vintage Asian ceramic garden stool working as an accent table.

Most of this party-friendly family room’s remaining color scheme came from the other end of the spectrum — browns, oranges and reds.

The low-pile wall-to-wall carpet was a reddish orange, similar to the ottoman, one throw pillow, and the elegant red-enameled frame of the Chinoiserie mirror on the wall.

A low black Asian-style accent table and two different leather ottomans completed the decor of this home that was ready for entertaining any ol’ time.
