You don’t exactly expect to see burnt orange and pink paired together often, but this space by
Gillian Segal Design

Rebecca Hay Designs

This happy mudroom area is the brainchild of
Abby Leigh Designs
, which infused a hefty dose of playfulness through pink patterns on the walls and bench cushion. Take notes from the firm for your own space by mixing similar prints, and pairing them with plenty of solid, neutral hues.

The design by
