Using bold wallpaper in a small bathroom is one of the best things you can do. The big, bold print will actually make the space look larger and create some serious drama. Maybe because it’s unexpected, bold wallpaper in the bathroom is always a huge hit and one of the most popular bathroom treatments among designers today.

Interiors using muted colors are just as successful as those boiling over with color – often times, muted rooms are even more successful than their colorful counterparts. I like to chalk that up to tranquility and stress free living. Not to say that color means stress, but it often amps things up a bit and some people like to feel overcome with a sense of calm when walking in their front door.
Muted color palettes doesn’t mean blah or boring – this kind of color palette actually lends itself really well to chic and sophistication. In order to pull off such a simple color palette, you need to choose each piece of furniture, art work, accessory even more carefully than in colorful rooms. This is due to the fact that you don’t have a thousand different colors and pieces of furniture for the eye to distract, with a muted color palette you have to make an impact with just a few pieces and colors.
There are several different ways you can go about doing this. You can go completely simple and chic (like the first image). Choose interesting pieces of furniture – expertly handcrafted leather chairs or a beautifully tufted sofa would be absolutely perfect for warming up the space. Other than those luxury pieces – keep the rest of the room minimal in not only furniture and accessories, but color as well. This creates a modern yet still comfortable room.
The second most popular way to work with a muted palette is by choose three colors to work with and that’s it. It’s so important to make sure each and every piece that’s placed in the room is one of those three colors. As you can see in the second photo, black, gray and white are the three colors. Each and every piece is either black, gray or white. The bedroom looks so glamorous and luxurious because they didn’t let the restrained color palette dictate the amount of items in the room. Just because you use only two or three colors doesn’t mean you only have to have three pieces of furniture (unless of course that’s the look you’re going for (image one)).

Jewel tones are one of my absolute favorite colors to work with in the home. The colors are rich while still being vibrant and interesting. The mood that jewel tones sets is romance and mystery – perfect for entertaining and woo-ing a crowd. Jewel tones are especially successful in the dining room!

Jim Thompson Fabrics has been in business since the early 1950′s. It would be quite the misconception to think that just because they have been around for so many years that their fabrics would be dated. It’s actually quote the opposite. When you browse through the seemingly never ending collections of fabric – you’ll realize that they are about as modern as modern can get, with a touch of whimsy, of course.
The inspiration for the collections ranges from a certain city all the way to a tropical ocean filled with colorful underwater life. That’s what makes a fabric designer and manufacturer a true artist – relying on the worlds surroundings to inspire an entire collection.
Coral has always been an inspiration in just about any artistic fashion, but not quite in the way it was for the Fantasy Island collection from Jim Thompson Fabrics. The Seabra print is so bold and beautiful – the color pops and demands attention. This particular fabric would be perfect for a beach house or to add some flare to an otherwise neutral room.
On the much more sophisticated end of things – there are collections that have taken inspiration to the urban jungle. Cities like Chicago and New York for example have inspired collections that are dark, sleek, sophisticated and super sharp. Fabrics that would be perfect for upholstering cushions on a set of dining chairs or upholstered a side chair in a swanky high rise office.
These are the things that make Jim Thompson Fabrics so sought after and respected. The ability for one fabric house to put out not only the quantity of fabric that Jim Thompson does but also the range in style. L.A. Design Concepts carries the entire Jim Thompson Fabric collection.

It may seem slightly shocking at first, but only in the most stunning way. Yellow curtains aren’t found very often in traditional decor, but if you’re willing to take a bit of a risk for a very beautiful outcome, yellow is the way to go. Yellow curtains work best when used in an otherwise muted room. The muted color palette allows the yellow to truly stand on its own and completely steal the show.

Creating a living room using only a few colors can certainly be challenging but the results are always inspiring. A simple living room using black, white and a few touches of wood tones is one of the most modern ways to go about decorating in your home.
Using white for most of the elements creates the perfect canvas to add touches of black to add drama. White makes the space look much larger, brighter and certainly more airy – the black adds hints of drama and highlights the white perfectly. The wood tones add a warmth to the space that creates a homey feeling.

Priding themselves on their excellent customer service and years of service in the high end luxury fabric business, Highland Court Fabrics is a division of Duralee Fabrics. What separates Highland Court from Duralee is their ultra high end line of luxury fabrics for savvy consumers who know what they’re looking for.
Their fabrics range from indoor to outdoor and everything in between. Outdoor fabrics have made a huge comeback because the entertainment industry has focused much around celebrating outdoors. Transforming the exterior entertaining spaces of your home can be as simple as choosing the perfect outdoor upholstery fabrics. If you’re looking for a slightly modern edge, which works really well with the outdoors because you need to make a statement amongst all of the outdoor elements, geometric patterns work perfectly. They’re bold enough to make a statement and draw attention without completely overpowering the beautiful outdoor elements. Often times, solids can look dull or plain because they don’t demand attention.
The inside is a completely different story. Indoor fabrics have a much broader range in texture, colors and styles. The details and patterns can be much more intricate and delicate – really showcasing the time, effort and skill it took to create such luxury pieces. The more intricate pieces are perfect for show pieces – those sofas and ottomans that aren’t going to be used every day, only for special occasions and family photos.
The more durable but equally luxurious fabrics are for those pieces that will see regular use. They come in beautiful colors, prints and textures that can be used for a variety of different upholstery projects. Sofas and headboards have become the latest in upholstery projects because once professionally upholstered in a new fabric they add a huge amount of personality and flair to a room.
With over twenty different fabric collections, there is a fabric for everyone. These fabrics range from everyday use to super special occasions and the most luxurious bedding. If you need high end fabric in your home, Highland Court Fabrics is most definitely the source for you.

There are those moments when you look at a home in a magazine and you just stop dead in your tracks and wish you could be transported to that place and live there. That’s how we feel about the this home featured in Atlanta Homes Magazine and designed by Suzanne Kasler. The colors are neutral and crisp, working perfectly with the beautiful wood on the floors and ceilings and stone in the fireplace. When you’re home has beautiful wood, it’s important to choose a colore scheme in the fabrics and wall paint that compliment the wood – not compete with it.
In a smaller sitting area, Kasler was able to make the room feel much larger than it really is. Using crisp white colors alongside dark woods, beautiful stone work and metallics – the room looks feminine and clean. To add a slightly masculine touch, Suzanne incorporated some white antlers to frame around the mirror. Using a slightly geometric wallpaper adds a much needed structure to the room without it looking too formal.

Victoria Hagan’s Home Collection is the perfect combination of simple and elegant. It’s so apparent in her designs that she wanted the materials and simple shapes to speak for themselves – no sense in mucking them up with large ornate details and frills that don’t mean anything. Often, it’s the most simple pieces that prove to be the most elegant and timeless.
Hagan is no stranger to the world of furniture and design. She has been in the industry for many years and began as an Interior Designer. After working with many clients she realized that the pieces she would often be looking for just weren’t available – so she decided to make her own collection filled with texture, color and strong silhouettes.
The casegoods in the Victoria Hagan Home Collection are angular and geometric in their shapes. This works perfectly with the fact that otherwise they are so simple and neutral. You don’t have to have a obnoxiously ornate bedside table in order to show your love for design, often it’s the subtle pieces that are cherished more.
The Jefferson dressers and side tables are absolutely stunning. They can be used in a variety of different ways; ranging from the most obvious – in the bedroom. These elegant dressers would work great with an all white color palette as well as a super luxurious palette as well. If you are working with a colorful room, the white dressers would really pop in their contrasting color.
There’s also an upholstered furniture, textile and rug collection as well. The upholstered furniture is ultra chic and modern meets elegant. A dark chocolate brown velvet sofa with pewter nailheads is absolute perfection. This sofa would be the highlight of any living room and would certainly steal the show from all other pieces.
A simple yet comfortable armchair with bronze nailheads outlining the bold lines is so chic and modern. You’ll find yourself never wanting to leave the room because it’s so stunning.

The Ted Boerner casegoods collection is just as stellar as any of the upholstered items. The pieces share a common architectural element in the bold lines and bulky yet angular shapes.

Dark wood pieces with white countertops are perfect for decorating with because the dark wood adds drama and sophistication while the white top keeps it modern and current.

Dining tables that have a somewhat simple top and interesting legs, exactly like this table from Ted Boerner. It’s the perfect balance between sophisticated design and a functional dining table.
Another important aspect of adding a dining table to your home is adding chairs that compliment the table. It’s a fine line between complimenting the table and overpowering it. Ted Borner Furniture offers a variety of different dining chair options, everything from upholstered with arms to solid wood and sleek.
Along with exquisitely made furniture, Ted Boerner Furniture includes a collection of accessories. In the accessories collection is an absolutely fabulous Sidelines Mirror. We’ve all seen the fully framed mirrors that you can purchase in any store, but this is much more detailed and designed. Framed only on two sides, in different finishes the mirror provides not only a function in your home but an added design element to any space.
Accessories are often overlooked in the home and they actually serve a huge purpose. Not only are some accessories functional (like a mirror) they provide a way to inject personality. They also fill up smaller spaces on top of furniture or on the walls.

Modern design is often thought to be sleek, minimal and void of color. While that is often true and can be completely successful – modern decor can be cozy as well. Combining sleek modern furniture with touches of color and personal belongings can create a warm and cozy environment. Just because you fall in love with a modern bed doesn’t mean you can’t put anything else in the room with it.
Let the furniture be the show stopper and modern element in the space. Modern furniture, particularly modern beds demand attention and architectural in their lines and shapes. Let the bed and dressers stand on their own and add your personal style on top of that. Hang photographs from your favorite sailing trip in the San Francisco Bay above your bed and accent the nautical feel with striped bedding. Add some vintage cameras on your bedside table to showcase that you took those prized vacation photos.
Add a comfortable rug just below the bed not only for personal comfort but to break up the hard lines of the bed and flooring.

There’s an unspoken myth in the interior world that eclectic and upscale can’t be used in the same sentence and that’s entirely untrue. Eclectic is meant to be a collection of possessions from worldly travels and all put into one home creating a unique and distinct style. There’s no reason you can’t incorporate upscale furniture with the pieces you’ve spent years collection from all of your travels.

Ivanka Trump is known around the world for being quite the business woman and fashion mavin. Her unique fashion sense definitely carries over to her sense of design in her New York City apartment. The ten room apartment that over looks Park Avenue is filled with surprising colors, textures and certainly patterns.
Trumps style doesn’t fit into a typical cookie cutter, it’s much more eclectic meets modern meets contemporary. She finds things and colors that she likes and makes them work together in the same room. Keeping the living room furniture subdued, she was able to mix and match artwork and sculptures all in the same room without it looking overdone.
The office is a perfect combination of neutral meets bright colors. The tan found on the walls, sectional and floor is balanced out by the bright blue found in the artwork and desk. The combination is unexpected but works so well.
