Custom gray fabric panels cover the walls in this stunning home theater, enhancing the contemporary style and sound quality of the room. Designer Kari Whitman ordered the fabric for the walls from Italy, but when it arrived, the seams didn't line up. She installed thin smoky mirrors between the panels to solve the problem and add instant glam.
A perfectly composed bedroom is a thing of beauty -- and this one's no exception. The symmetry of the space -- including the matching bedside tables and metal lamps -- is pleasing on the eye, creating a serene spot to rest and recharge.
This snapshot of a corner area shows how moldings under the window, the fabric panel behind the bed, and pleated shades add texture and form to this bedroom. The sleek, mirrored night stand and the silver lamp are counterpoints to the design.
The layered look is definitely in style when it comes to window treatments. From drapery panels to shades, these items now come lined for a number of reasons. Layers help to keep warm air in during the winter and out during the summertime, and also help protect furniture and decor from fading. Aesthetically, lined window treatments offer a high-end look. "Layers provide energy-saving qualities and make the face fabric hang much nicer for a custom look," says Janet Barragan, senior vice president of window design at Curtainworks.

The water inspired Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's Sarah's Summer House, to decorate this guest bedroom with cool blues and greens. A striped vintage rag rug complements bold green-and-white sheets that counterbalance the feminine blue decorative pillows. The curves in the headboard and fabric represent waves in the water, adding to the coastal feel of the room.
Rough-sawn fir planks set in a board-and-batten style clad the walls in this master bedroom. Colorful fabric panels provide a nice backdrop for the wood slab headboard. The attached sitting room enjoys sweeping views of the surrounding Arizona desert.
In a master bedroom that was all about cozy luxury, designer Lauren Macer created an inviting seating area using existing pieces from her client’s collection. “The armchairs are vintage pieces, however they were upholstered in black leather that was damaged. I reupholstered them in a beautiful soft linen fabric for a completely different look,” she says. “When looking for vintage furniture pieces, the most important element is shape. The upholstery, wood color and the condition of the filling can all be changed — so keep an open mind and don’t let a strong pattern or color distract you.”
