Stick with Faded Shades

A warm palette of cream, beige, and taupe is a natural fit for the living room's vintage style. Geometric shapes, such as honeycomb pattern on the throw pillows or the trellis motif on the rug, add a graphic punch to the muted palette. A range of textures, from the woven blinds to the brass lamp to the lacquered coffee table, also enlivens the space.
