This eclectic space illustrates a nice example of integrating a more traditional piece of furniture like a regency bench, with a modern lacquer coffee table. The designer selected a warm color palette to tie everything together.  It’s helpful to create a sense of harmony between the pieces as well. In this case the fabric on the pillows and the weave on the bench matches with the rug and the natural wood accessory on the table.  The designer chose a warm grey with brownish hues to augment and integrate the earth tones while still keeping the feel fresh and modern. A delicate balancing act, too much grey (with blue hues) may not work as well with the eclectic mix of furniture, and too much brown on the walls may simply be overkill.
