In this colorful and vibrant 60s living room, the decorators unleashed some pulsating fruity hues: raspberry, lemon, lime and grape — and although the choices were from across the spectrum, the result was as harmonious as a rainbow.

Kicking off the whole unusual color scheme was the multicolored sofa, featuring stripes of sky blue, parrot green and lemon yellow,

It was set against a blue-purple wall — but the electric wall color was a backdrop only for that piece of furniture. The rest of that wall had a subtle beige grasscloth-like wallpaper, with just enough of a texture to keep it interesting.

Colors in the room’s central core were keyed to other areas throughout the space, which led to the unique interplay of high-tension brights.

Raspberry pink-red throw pillows on the couch and on one stool cushion warmed things up, and matched the mat of the flower painting that was part of an art trio centered in the bold blue-purple zone.

Bridging those all of these zesty colors were some neutrals — beige and brown, including materials such as wood and glass. Finally, the rug, with its large-scale flower design on an off-white background — brought everything back down to earth.
