A mantel is prime display space. This one hangs a mirror on the wall and leans artwork against it, for a layered look. Urns on either side balance out the arrangement. The whole room is lifted by a vibrant patterned throw and pillow.
Story time is snug and stylish with this nursery's simple gray armchair, patterned stool and midcentury modern side table. For color, kid's books and toys join forces with a pretty rainbow wall hanging.
This beautiful fauteuil in the French-style master bedroom is glazed in blue for a look of period elegance. The open armchair is covered in a white fabric patterned with red roses for a soft, feminine touch.
Who's afraid of mixing patterns? Not these armchairs, with their leopard print cushions, monogrammed pillows and cherry red piping. Keeping all the prints in the same black, white and red color family makes the wild combos work.
Don't be afraid to combine varying textures and colors; they can create a look that's eclectic and sophisticated. This bedroom mixes wood, metallics and mirrors with mohair, velvet and graphic patterns. The result is a richly layered, visually compelling setting.
