Modern Take on a Classic Garden Wall
This vertical garden offers a contemporary spin on the more traditional garden wall. The oversized, textured medallion serves as a focal point, though plants in a mixture of textures, colors and shapes draw the eye onward, and raised redwood beds ground the space.
Create a romantic look with two-toned outdoor furniture. Here, black and brown seating combine for a pleasing contrast. Medallion throw pillows add Mediterranean flair to the contemporary seating area.
Interested in a more modern, artistic and architectural approach to holiday decor? Create an unexpected door hanging with an architectural ceiling medallion, spray paint and ribbon. Pick up a ceiling medallion from the hardware store, update it with glossy spray paint and adorn with seasonal embellishments. Add twine, yarn, string or ribbon to the top and attach it to your door.
Stylish Vertical Garden With Large Metal Medallion
A textured metal medallion forms a focal point in this colorful rooftop vertical garden. Raised redwood beds are on casters, allowing them to be moved several times a year for window washers to reach the apartments below. Fuchsia, oxalis and round aeonium are among the species that bloom in the vertical garden.
Curved Glass Shower with Tile Medallion in Contemporary Bathroom
The "limestone" in this shower is actually a porcelain lookalike that's less expensive and easier to maintain. The medallion is composed of marble, mosaic tile and natural limestone. The splurge here, says designer Carolyn Thomas, is the curved glass chamber and two-way hinged door that keeps water inside after showering.
Mediterranean Foyer With Marble Floor Medallion and Round-Top Door
Natural light floods this soft yellow foyer with a round-top front door that mirrors the shape of a large window. Two brown lamps sit atop the wooden console table, while a blue and brown floor medallion sits at the center of the neutral marble floor.
This lovely sitting room is a perfect balance of contrasts: Darker, heavier elements like the bookshelf and wood floor are lifted by the lightness of the chandelier, arched window and the ghost chairs.
