“Specific colors and patterns weren’t important, but creating the emotional response was,” says Dane Pressner, director of design for D’Aquino Monaco, of a cottage he designed in Snedens Landing, New York. The turquoise Elitis bamboo wallcovering was the starting point, with a Josef Frank floral chair fabric inspiring the rest of the palette, which Pressner used to color block the space. “We love when wild elements get paired together; instead of becoming crazier, they find harmony with one another,” he says. daquinomonaco.com
