Lamps aren’t only for indoors. Electric table lamps approved for outdoor use are ideal decorative accents that extend your outdoor time. The Mindy Indoor/Outdoor Lamp, $399 from Grandin Road, takes a regular 60 Watt bulb and comes with a cheery geometric shade.
Window treatments not only add softness and style, but also control light, protecting interior furnishings and materials from damaging UV rays. “Flat Roman fabric shades from Smith & Noble are available with a privacy lining that offers sun protection,” says Kara Roberts, Director of Merchandising for the company. Shown here is a Flat Roman Fabric Shade in Samara/Stone with privacy lining.
The white walls of this midcentury modern living room are livened with patterns and color in the furniture and decor. A striped rug complements the coloring of the patterned armchairs. Chevron and solid throw pillows and a set of sleek drawers add bursts of yellow color to the room.
Soothing white walls trimmed in blue crown molding create a heavenly effect in this transitional master suite. Where the four poster canopy bed provides a luxurious space for unwinding at the end of a long day, the geometric print enlivens the room and coordinates with its green accents.
This classic gray and white kitchen features a triangular tile backsplash in a contemporary pattern. Thick marble countertops compliment the backsplash and lead the eye from the gas cooktop to the glass-front door cabinetry with white dinnerware.
Geometric wallpaper offers a bold pattern in a soft gray and white. A neutral single vanity granite countertop, an industrial-style light fixture and beach-themed framed prints make this powder room light and airy.
The second-floor bedroom at HGTV Smart Home 2014 provides a quiet retreat for overnight guests. A color scheme of blue, green, white and khaki serves as a springboard for a preppy, sophisticated style. A crisp white duvet and shams, embellished with satin blue stitching, lend hotel-inspired luxury.
This contemporary gray and white kitchen features a custom island welded from tubular steel then powder-coated in a charcoal finish. A herringbone geometric backsplash pattern compliments the gray cabinetry and metallic accents in the room. A simple arrangement of white roses brings softness to the space.
For the bold decorator, adding a geometric pattern to an otherwise neutral space is a surefire way to make a statement. This design comes together in no time when applied with a homemade stamp and will undoubtedly have house guests asking where you “bought” your shower curtain!
