  1. This beautiful open floor plan by Sara Gilbane Interiors makes the big space feel intimate through the use of large windows and coordinated ceiling colors. This bold orange could be a dangerous choice, but by using the same shade within a pattern on the backs of the chairs and by keeping the rest of the color palette consistent and simple, the orange is tastefully applied and makes this an unexpected, yet classy, apartment.

  1. The delicate detailing in this bedroom is mirrored by the graceful sloping ironwork of the canopy bed. This wallpaper is the accent wall in the room, and also serves as the artwork and focal point. The simple mirrors perfectly compliment the wallpaper.

  1. The duo behind Hernandez Greene got their start in the fashion world, something that becomes obvious throughout their portfolio. The pair are great with mixing textures, and understand that a mix of textures and material draw the eye in. This master bedroom is classic Cape Cod-esque and an example of the way wallpaper and antiqued painting techniques can evoke an ambient sense of place—no matter how far your bedroom is from the beachfront.

The bar furnishings in this dining room take advantage of the vineyard wallpaper; the bar shelving frames the sections of the wall so that the bottles appear to be part of the “art”. The rest of the room is painted in a neutral palette to draw attention to the mixture of colors + texture + patterns that creates a modern dining space.

  1. As Mark Sikes shows, you don’t need to go dramatic on your walls in order to create a tasteful open living space. The warm, neutral, walls highlight the natural wood; the bold carpet is a good contrast, and the attention to coordinating the shade of blue in the furnishings from room to room makes the large space intimate.

  1. Simple, fun and useful, the orange paint only on the inside of the shelving of this kid’s room evokes the orange piping of the headboard and the throw pillow on the bed. A pop of orange sunshine doesn’t disturb the overall simple and clean feel of this boyish room.

9. A clean, modern kitchen highlights the natural beauty of the windows by maintaining a simple color scheme with two wallpaper borders along the tiered ceiling. Using wallpaper instead of paint to highlight the unique molding of the ceiling is a subtle way to add your personality to your home.
