An open living area is made cozier with the addition of a neutral rug and cozy white daybed with views of New York City's Lower East Side. Moroccan elements such as the Ikat fabric pillows and traditional pouf add a pop of color visual interest to the otherwise neutral space.
In a kitchen with simple style and a mostly white color palette, a splash of pattern can add personality. "Help frame a beautiful view with a valance mounted above the window. This ikat-patterned fabric, Bansuri in Slate, has a rich neutral that adds interest to the solid white cabinets," says the manufacturer.
A sisal-style rug anchors the dining room and counters the formal lines of the bold patterned chairs. Stepped out from the kitchen, this space is surrounded by three walls of windows, providing an almost outdoor dining experience.
To satisfy the homeowner's love of color, designer Kelly Mittleman introduced colorful fabrics, such as the cushions and pillows on this window seat in the kitchen. Varying pattern scales add visual interest.
This traditional family room is designed for a young family. Ikat, paisley, faux leather and faux animal print fabrics are combined to bring excitement to the room while also making it kid-friendly with stain-resistant fabrics.
An Hermes pillow in an orange-and-white checkerboard pattern provides eye-catching contrast against the neutral bedding of the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014. The classic blue-and-white pattern in the fabric wallpaper is Pierre Frey's 18th-century ikat Toile de Nantes print.
A new rug took up $110 of the $500 budget. Designer Heather Hogan Roberts found this fleece rug with a geometric pattern on sale and saved more with a 10 percent off coupon. She bought two ikat window panels and got one for 40 percent off. Those savings allowed her to buy discounted fabric for custom pillows and the elephant end table, which cost $40 at a thrift shop. The fiddle-leaf fig adds natural beauty to a corner with no need for wall art.
This family room features a diverse mix of fabrics, patterns and materials to create a globally-inspired, eclectic space. The deep midnight blue accent color on the ikat drapery is carried over to the hand-painted wooden plaques above the fireplace. The whole look is grounded with a large oriental rug and a classic-lined sofa. Accent furniture, including a unique hammered bronze metal coffee table, modern orange chair and classic wing-back chair complete the look.
