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.

  • Satisfied Customer

    Designer Brian Patrick Flynn and homeowner, Meredith Repp, relax and enjoy her new living room.
