Shades of blue evoke a restful atmosphere in this bedroom while the layering of patterns brings imaginative life to the space. The interwoven design of the rug and bed linen is carried through in the art and basket beneath the nightstand.
Layering textures, patterns and complementing colors give this living room a collected, lived-in feel. African necklaces hang around the neck of a glass table lamp as a unique way to display meaningful objects that also keep with the room's eclectic coastal style.
A bright color choice for this sofa makes it pop against the neutral walls. With an eclectic living space you can be brave with color and texture. Bright walls are one thing, but they are so much more interesting when layered with patterns and textures and colors.
A bright yellow leather sofa sets the tone for a fun and funky living space. Mod vertical windows are inset on a exposed brick wall, which is painted white to brighten the space. Meanwhile, natural wood blinds tie in the geometric fireplace surround. A papered accent wall adds an extra layer of pattern.
A newlywed couple's bedroom in the Hollywood Hills captures the allure of the Hollywood and the naturally Bohemian air of living in Laurel Canyon in one space. A large scale sea photograph printed on plexiglass is mounted above a modern black bed frame with white linens and layered pillows. Patterned rugs add warm color to the room.
Even small powder room counters deserve a little panache. A powder room rarely requires space for toiletries or cosmetics, but that little piece of countertop is sometimes an overlooked spot for decorative accents. Clinton Rice, owner of Clinton Lane Rice Design in Atlanta, brought this collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain into his powder room, adding another layer of pattern against the existing geometric wallpaper.
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.
Designer Ashley DeLapp created this vibrant space with the whole family in mind. By pairing layered geometric patterns with vibrant pops of color, designer she was able to create the ideal midcentury-modern dining room setting. The round table is flanked by chairs decorated in a yellow geometric pattern, while the gray trellis wallpaper provides a striking contrast to the otherwise bright color choices. The room's credenza not only allows for storing extra items, but serves as a furniture accent piece. Geometric lamps decorate the top of the piece, along with beautiful floral arrangements.
