Swatches: A living room spruce up

My sister and her boyfriend are looking to spruce up their living room and invited me over yesterday to
"consult" on a design plan... of course, I was excited to help out! 

Many things can inspire a design plan in a room.  Some people start with a rug or a piece of art.  I usually look to fabrics for inspiration, so, I searched for a few patterns that I thought could jump start a color scheme.  Their walls and furnishings are all pretty neutral, which means there is room for a little jolt of color.

Since they rent their home, they're not looking to make any major changes or purchases - but, I think with a little rearranging, painting, sewing, craigslisting/thrifting, and a pop of color - their space will be more functional, look refreshed and will reflect their style and personalities better.  I'm looking forward to working with my "clients" to come up with a plan - and will keep you posted!
