In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
A decorative woven basket for pillows is a nice, textured detail to add personality and functionality to a space. Hardwood flooring extends out from the blue area rug below the basket. A thick knitted blanket and matching pillow are accented by a colorful floral pillow.
The white weaving of this chair pops over a wood base for a stylish look and feel. A knit throw and navy pillow soften the seat and contribute to the mix of texture used in this area. The pillows plays off the hombre blue end table displaying white tulips for fresh and simple decor.

Dark charcoal fireplace stone creates the perfect blend of modern and rustic in this elegant living space. A blue velvet sofa with leather accented pillows shares a striped black-and-white area rug with modern woven chairs covered in sheepskin throws. Overhead, exposed wooden beams provide a beautiful contrast from the crisp, white walls.
Patterns are harmoniously woven together to create a colorful master bedroom design. The key to adding different patterns to a room is to choose different prints and colors. A striped nightstand contrasts with the interlocking scroll design on the yellow wallpaper and ties the pink of the ottoman with the pink tweed pillows. A soft, pattern in the gray-and-white window treatments parallel the colors of the bedding and acts as a backdrop for the pale, blue armchair.
