Animated patterns give spunk to residential, contract and hospitality projects. But without the right add-ons, the effect can be overwhelming. Imagine the kaleidoscopic effect of wallcoverings constructed from strips of recycled movie posters, facing a sofa upholstered in a Pollock-channeling cotton-linen cover. Now, it’s time to bring the restraint. Gray woolen carpet proves a soothing foil. The lattice relief of ivory-toned resin trim updates a classic motif. And bronze-finish laminate walks a fine line between exuberance and elegance.
