Texture and pattern take over in the contemporary design of this sitting room. A black border divides sections of blue and neutral wall covering, and a neutral wall accent panel adds dimension to the space. A blue graphic rug and yellow graphic throw pillow add pops of color to the neutral sofa and furniture. A beautiful black lamp with layers of shades is the perfect lighting addition.
A monochromatic look can be bold and budget-friendly. Consider matching your curtains to the walls, as seen in his metro Atlanta model home by the designers with Monte Hewett Homes. Since time is money, you can save time by not worrying about finding a complementary color or pattern for the drapes.
With so much amazing design going on in this living room, it’s easy to miss some of the smaller details that make it work. Tamara does an excellent job of creating layers in this living room. Every instance of a pattern or color is echoed or repeated somewhere else in the room so that nothing feels out of place. Just in this vignette, the leopard print of the pillow is repeated in the stool, while the yellow of the throw blanket is repeated in several of the art pieces on the wall. This maximalist approach works best when every element in the room reinforces several others.
Light pink walls are capped with a patterned ceiling bringing a touch of green to the room. A striped floor matches the walls and adds deeper shades of pink. Hot pink letters personalize the wall above a beautiful white crib with pink details. The dresser and toy box match the crib for a fully girly design.
White bookshelves reach to the ceiling for maximum book storage in this home library. A wonderful, unique book page light fixture is an excellent detail for this reading focused room. A window seat is padded with an orange, leaf design cushion with matching throw pillows.
Texture, pattern and detail pack a powerful punch in this transitional foyer. A feathered mirror hangs above an upholstered bench with beautiful wrought iron detailing, and behind, nailhead trim outlines the sections of molding on the wall.
Crisp, white paint coats the walls, fireplace, and exposed beams in this midcentury living room with historic details. A leather sofa and two armchairs sit on a blue, patterned area rug in front of the large wood-burning fireplace.
Stepping stones are carefully arranged in a neat pattern outside this Mediterranean-style home, adding texture and interest to the home's already unique landscaping. Natural stone walls and walkways complement the home's stucco exterior.

East meets west in this eclectic entry hall, which features a nail head-studded door, shouldered arch and original crown molding.

French Colonial-inspired architectural elements are set off by the contrast brought by white walls and ebonized hardwood floors.
Designed in a classic San Francisco Victorian, this living room features contrasting paint colors from the white trim to the gray wall color that defines and accentuates architectural details of the space. A black and white patterned sofa serves as the focal point of the room, while orange and white flowers bring a touch of color to the living area.
A light, natural wood accent wall adds subtle and effective texture against the light turquoise walls and white crown molding. The pale turquoise is repeated on the bench at the foot of the bed and a final touch on the smallest throw pillow. Salmon pink bed covers add a bright pop of color with a dainty, matching pattern on the curtains. A feminine white bed frame is a perfect fit for the design.
Floor to ceiling wood wine bottle shelves cover a long wall for optimum storage. A lighted center row highlights bottles and brightens the structure. An elegant light fixture casts a decorative shadow pattern over the ceiling. A wine barrel is fitting to the theme and works as a table.

The neutral pattern of the wall helps to keep the space feeling light, while the dark patterned carpet adds contrast while helping to hide dirt that might get tracked into the space. Finally, gold details finish off the design and add that extra bit of pizzaz the homeowner was looking for.
