NAVY IS THE COLOR
Chevrons, a fresh take on polka dots and a mix of geometrics make up the fresh new collection of fabrics by interior designer Carolyn Rebuffel. Her new line, Workroom C, starts with a marriage of color and pattern. Two things that are showcased throughout her interior. “It came about one day when I was on the hunt for the ‘perfect navy’ pattern and could not find it,” explains Rebuffel. That search for the perfect pattern and color took the designer on an unexpected journey. Carolyn started creating her own designs, eventually crafting a set of patterns that could be printed on demand, in one-yard increments, with repeats that could easily make a 20” square pillow out of a single yard. Her home became the perfect showcase for the new designs. With prints like Isabel are showcased throughout.
In the living room, the designer’s shade of choice - navy blue - looks rich and luxurious on a cozy velvet sofa. "I think a navy sofa is the perfect start and neutral to build a room around with pattern and color.” Carolyn did just that, punctuating her interior with moments of pattern with a set of her cushions. Behind the sofa, drapery in yardage from her latest collection is the perfect complement to the navy sofa.Continue to 2 of 8 below.

SMALL NOOK BIG STYLE
In a corner of the bedroom is a lovely reading nook. A chaise lounge is beautifully upholstered in a small-scale abstract print. The pattern reflects the color blue that can be seen on the rug in the bedroom.

For a youthful effect in this boy’s room, the navy shade in the rest of the home has been abandoned for a cool shade of turquoise. The color is the perfect fit for a young person’s space. Accentuated by dark shades of walnut and tangerine, the color feels sophisticated in the interior. For a pop of color, Rebuffel’s cushions in tangerine are a nice accent to the seating area below the bunkbed.Continue to 6 of 8 below.

Reflecting her unique aesthetic as a designer, all of the patterns in Carolyn’s collection can be easily mixed and matched. The whole set of colors was built around that perfect shade of navy that the designer was in search of. The additional patterns were designed to complement the base shade of the collection, and they do just that. A mix of turquoise, jade, peony and golden yellow all accent the central hue.Continue to 8 of 8 below.

A CREATIVE COLLECTION
“We spend so much time with the day-to-day details of design that sometimes the creativity can get lost in the shuffle,” says Carolyn, regarding her turn to product design. “Not being the biggest part of our job most days and creating new fabric patterns is a very pure creative outlet for me.” The outlet has inspired the start of a new collection of prints by Carolyn’s new company, Workroom C. Perfect designers and design enthusiasts, each cushion can fit into the most contemporary of spaces; add a fun pop of color and pattern to a neutral space; and be mixed and matched for an eclectic look in any room.
