A neutral color palette keeps this guest room sophisticated, but the zebra print pillows insert a little fun. Wooden nightstands are positioned on either side of the brown leather bed, while a ceiling fan hangs above a brown wooden armchair with bead-like arms and legs.
A common trick of the trade is to juxtapose modern shapes with more classic ones — which is what Dallas-based designer Elaine Williamson did when she chose these mod, Jonathan Adler fixtures to counterbalance the elegant sophistication of a bathroom's carrera marble countertops.

A reclaimed wood desk and graphic black-and-white triptych photograph give this urban home office an eclectic, homey feel. Glass-front shelves and a comfortable leather chair add function, while soft taupe walls bring warmth.

After a devastating fire that destroyed the client's home, some materials were retrieved from the embers and incorporated into this reconstructed half bath.

In this second-home Chicago high-rise pied-à-terre, rough wooden side tables and a rustic dining table paired with brilliant red faux-leather chairs create an inspired look in this combined living and dining room.
