I am such a visual person. Even if something isn't my look, I find inspiration in the beauty.
I love this pic from Domino Magazine. It's not my speed, but there is a lot to learn from the design. There are a lot of neutrals and the punch of the two colorful items - the pillows and the prints - adds a pop of color, but not too much. I also like the "British invasion" theme. Again, not so theme-y to the point of being a room full of geese or fake flowers, but still a subtle theme, nonetheless.
If it's your look, check out the pillows on eBay.
