A simple pattern repeated can make a striking statement on a wall. Look for tiles with built-in motifs or create your own with different shapes, sizes and textures. This pattern gives a bold look to the wall; however, using less contrast between tiles will soften the look.
Pattern does a long way in this enchanting bedroom, where a floral motif is repeated on the bedding, wallpaper and drapes. A bamboo-inspired four-poster bed anchors the room on a neutral plaid area rug. The tufted armchair, warmly lit fireplace and loveseat create an inviting atmosphere for guests and family alike.
This appealing and comfortable living room uses a teal motif from the walls through the sofa, armchair and intriguing ottomans to create a bold yet relaxing environment. An open kitchen plan and floor-to-ceiling windows keep the small space filled with light and feeling roomy. An industrial pendant light adds pizzazz to the space.
A fresh combination of white, black and gray adds a sleek aesthetic to this contemporary living room. Floor-length silver draperies add a subtle glow next to soft, gray walls and white furnishings. Faux wheat grass planters bring in a deep green hue for an added touch of color. Design by HGTV fan silversun84
A little color and pattern goes a long way in this sitting room, where a floral motif spans the window treatments and accent wall. A gray armchair with white piping is a more transitional counterpoint to the contemporary color scheme.
Cheerful yellows and greens, floral and graphic patterns and a houseplant used throughout the room bring to life this stunning and bright sunroom. With a spectacular view of the butterfly garden, the sunroom is a perfect place to relax after working outside or entertain guests in the evening.
Graphic patterns and letters accent this geometric seating area designed by Elaine Williamson. Black diamond wallpaper and a honeycomb throw pillow are statement pieces in the room, along with a bright orange, nailhead trim stool.
Light blue painted floor to ceiling beadboard mirroring the planked ceiling adds cottage style warmth to this transitional bedroom. A quilted bedspread and throw blanket carries the airy blue motif throughout the space. Small surprises like bright pillows, a plush shag area rug and traditional upholstered settee creates an inviting sitting area beneath geometric windows.
Designer Tara Benet designed this room to highlight its biggest asset: the view. A shag rug in this contemporary urban living area keeps the space from feeling too cold. In the background, a pair of fur chairs repeat the textural note.
This china’s design has a green turkey and bay leaf garland, with two bobwhite quails that tie into the region where designer J. Lee Cox lives in south Georgia. The china has a custom monogram by Savannah designer Emily McCarthy and is made by Sasha Nichols. The charger is a rattan basketweave.
