Like the kitchen, Gladys’ office is one of the home’s more toned-down spaces. The office may not house as many objects as the living room or family room, but what it does share with both of those rooms is a color palette of white and black with pops of red. Despite her bold choices in texture, pattern and size, Gladys admits that when it comes to color, she is, “mostly drawn to neutral tones.” It’s the understated nature of this palette that keeps the visual effect of her eclectic style under control while making all of the rooms feel related.
The black and white color palette of the dining room continues into the kitchen.

Pile on the pattern. Here, Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily layers decorative boxes, a lamp and geometric-shaped accessories for a chic, upmarket result. Group patterns by style, shape and function for added effect.
Sink into this clean, comfortable bedroom at the end of a long day and you're sure to feel relaxed almost immediately. The symmetrical look of the space — matching end tables and globe lamps are situated on either side of the room — adds to the visually soothing feel.
