A textural finish on the wall encompasses the design at room level while a lighter wall section and dark ceiling add beautiful levels of contrast. A sleek wood desk with a chrome frame and yellow and gray striped chair create a stylish workspace facing the bright natural light from the glass door.
This sleek and modern living room features built-shelving that flanks a comfy gray sectional, while a blue and white Greek key patterned rug anchors the space. A velvet maroon chair and ottoman add a pop of color, pattern and texture to bring the small living room to life.
A Greek Key rug cushions the hardwood floor under a chrome framed wood desk. A striped chair and a pair of framed patterns add cheery yellow accents to the neutral and gray base tones. Upholstered bookshelves with nailhead trim add style and function.
Throw pillows in blue and yellow liven up this traditional living room’s overall neutral color palette. Designer Kristen Hutchins layered a patterned wool rug over a simpler jute rug, and says the key to layering rugs is making sure the larger, main rug is neutral. "If you start out with a larger, neutral rug as the base, you can add a fun, patterned rug to define just the seating area,” she says.
A corner suite designed by BAMO at The New York Palace Hotel features a comfortable sectional sofa with nailhead detail. The Greek key pattern of the sofa trim is echoed in the design of the rug, while the warm chevron pattern and rust-colored accents provide additional dimensions of color.
A small kitchen niche doesn't have to be used as a breakfast nook. A pair of transitional print armchairs and a white side table create a comfortable sitting area for guests to relax in style in this kitchen nook. A deep purple rug is the key to the design as it anchors the space, defining it as separate from the rest of the kitchen.
A key factor in creating a dramatic dining space is grounding the area with a rug. Black and white is a color combination that works well with virtually any palette, and its stark contrast is helpful in breaking up the monotony of a strong dominant color. Here, the black and white was used and repeated on the floor and also on the wall with vintage graphic art.
Color and pattern come together to energize this transitional living room with spunk and pizzazz. Deep yellow artwork creates a focal point, and a Greek key patterned rug helps ground the seating area.

This neutral living space features a brown sofa with a gingham design on the pillows as well as a lampshade sitting atop a nearby end table. Also included are a sturdy coffee table and a large rug with Greek key design.
A pale wood rustic dining table is surrounded by a variety of seating, from the Greek key banquette and sleek wood chairs to the black-and-white striped head chairs. A round floral rug defines the dining space and adds style underfoot, while abstract art brings a splash of color to the soft gray walls.
Layers of color and pattern are the key to the sitting room's charm. The furniture draws color inspiration from the abstract art, while the bold pattern of the area rug offsets the painting's free-flowing brushstrokes.
Comfort is key for this French Country-inspired bedroom. A reading nook next to the French doors features a cozy chaise lounge with a simple end table and lamp. A natural fiber area rug adds warmth and softness to the floor.
