Surprisingly you can mix several bright colors together and still create a calm and classic space. The bold abstract painting "Small But Deadly" by Erica Rukin, currently available at Aaron Gallery near Dupont Circle, inspired a bedroom incorporating a few of the colors from the work but still giving the space a sense of tranquility with style. This is achieved by gathering items in the muted tones of the paintings, using solid colors, and not including too many bold patterns.

Inspired items (clockwise from top left): Anthropologie Coqo floral curtain; Crate & Barrel Boca lime table lamp; West Elm frayed-edge quilt in poppy; Shop Ten 25 Mongolian fur pillow; Design Within Reach American modern bed in walnut; Leif amethyst tealight holder; Glassybaby tealight holder in roots.
