A wood wall with a floral pattern and faux mounted animal head serves as a dynamic focal wall in this neutral guest bedroom. Red accents and floral-patterned pillows add color to the transitional space.
A grand hallway featuring an ornately carved wood sideboard projects the owners' elegant taste. A wallpapered accent wall with geometric prints enlivens the otherwise all-white room. An archway leading to another space in the home shows an old-fashioned dress form with a scarf and handbag.
The same dark stone treatment that covers most of the walls in this master bathroom also forms the vanity countertop. The earthy print gives the space an authentic connection to nature. Metallic fixtures and accents counterbalance the natural look with style and pizzazz.
This traditional china cabinet serves as the perfect display area for vintage china, glass ware, and silver serving ware. The floral and aviary patterned wall design add visual interest while the mounted pheasants sitting atop provide a unique conversation starter. The wall treatment may look like wallpaper, but it's actually paper-backed fabric. Designer Sarah Richardson used this centuries-old process to achieve a sophisticated look in her dining room. The process of backing fabric with paper is known as lamination or paper backing and costs about $10 per yard. Check with local wallpaper or fabric stores for availability.
The intricate and diverse assembly of wood in this bedroom creates a sense of texture and nuance in the room, while the white paint over all makes the space clean and simple. The contemporary bed -- which mixes wood with leather -- plus the patterned rug add to the overall feel of comfort in the room.
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.
This patterned chair against the fireplace is the perfect cozy spot to read or chill. The mask on the far right wall is from Tanzania, the wooden statue is from Ghana and the Picasso poster on the mantel is vintage. The brass candlesticks were a thrift store find.
A rich brown living room with a wooden wall treatment and a dark wood floor in a herringbone pattern is comfortable and inviting. Mirrored tables flanking the gorgeous white fireplace represent the traditional style of the room.
Stone walls give this dining space a cottage feel but are updated with a sleek dining table and stylish wicker armchairs. A rug with an Aztec-inspired pattern looks fun and funky, and the wood ceilings above echo the soothing neutral tones in the room. Exposed ductwork adds an industrial element to the space, which features multiple styles blended together seamlessly.
A trio of beautifully textured, patterned wall panels compliment the simple yet elegant table in this foyer. The pale blue wall paint makes a clean, soft backdrop. The palette-like base of the table highlights the country design and natural wood look of the table. A display of candles, plants and book easily dresses up the table while maintaining the calm style.
