Vibrant Living & Dining Room Redo

Designer Brian Patrick Flynn recycled ‘90s colors in this living room and dining room makeover.

Forego the Set

Instead of buying a matchy-matchy dining room set, go for an eclectic blend of flea-market finds. It’s cheaper, personal and it looks like the furniture has been collected over time.

Modern + Traditional

Don't be afraid to mix styles. Vintage modern chairs, paired with a traditional, rolled-arm sofa, make a room look fresh.

It's in the Details

When mixing patterns, think scale: use one small, one medium and one large.

Wall Upholstery

For a wall with a rough finish, try batting and upholstery fabric instead of wallpaper.
