Latticed tile makes a playful statement in this contemporary master bathroom. The glass shower stall flanks the tub unit for a cohesive look. The red moire fabric of window shade provides a burst of color to the more monochromatic palette.
Bold and colorful patterns can be on more than just pillows and throws. Try out some bright, patterned curtains for a statement piece in your living room. "In my shop, chevron, ikat, lattice and trellis prints are popular right now," says Tosha Scott, owner of Castle Creek Designs. The most important thing when bringing in window treatments with lots of color and pattern is to consider how other accessories will help temper the space.

Small changes can make a big impact, especially in small spaces. Consider changing up your porch's welcome mat each season for a fresh look. In keeping with the warm gray tones of this porch's outdoor decor, a graphic lattice-patterned mat is swapped in.

Pattern mixing is a designer's trick for bringing motion and depth into a space. From the overscaled, lattice-like shape of the FLOR tiles to the diamond stripes of the duvet cover to the geometric print of the throw pillows, pattern is used to draw the eye up from the ground, onto the bed and up to the abstract art.
White-on-white lattice wallpaper adds pattern to the relaxing bedroom. The tufted velvet headboard brings bold color the space and is flanked by sleek wood dressers-turned-nightstands. Abstract art adds a contemporary note to the room and mimics the colorful throw pillow on the bed.
The graphic patterns and bold colors characteristic of midcentury style can overwhelm a small space. But with a little creativity you can get the same effect, as designer Michelle Lord did in this bathroom update. Adding a lattice panel between the vanity and toilet/bath area not only created a sense of privacy but also incorporated pattern and texture, without straying from the all-white and wood palette.
Creating pattern and texture was the goal for this entire home design, and every room has special details to add depth and movement to the space. Custom lattice woodwork is used to create a feature wall in the foyer and living room. A large floor-length mirror visually expands the space, while streamlined furniture surrounds a gold coffee table for a comfortable seating area.
