Notice how the two rooms adjacent to each other blend with alternating colors. The colors flow from one room to the next.

The light and darker neutral pillows blend great with the decor on the wall. These colors can be put in a variety of different theme base rooms. The accent table in front of the couch is in a richer wood tone. Great overall blend to a room.
