You’ll notice that the raspberry is ONLY repeated in the flowers.
My first choice for drapery would have been green to coordinate with the green in the room. But I couldn’t find the fabric I wanted in the right green so then I thought, white. But that seemed too safe given I’m into colour.
When I decided on the raspberry, I decided to treat it as a colour block and ONLY repeat it in the flowers in the space. So that’s what I did.
Also, because I didn’t have any raspberry in the major pieces of furniture, rug or even artwork, it would not have looked right to only repeat the colour on cushions and accessories.
And here are the rest of the pictures:
