Patterns, Colors and Textures...

A little Friday inspiration. Rooms that pile on the goods; pattern, color and texture.


Jean Paul Gaultier got together with Roch Bobois to create a line of home furnishings. I'm diggin' the mixing of pattern and the low seating design. It's very casual but in a room with elegant moulding, high ceilings and windows, and that jet black, high gloss floor, the overall look is luxurious.

This fuchsia wall adds the right amount of drama to balance the stark white and damask sofa. I love the unexpected addition of the warn, blue rug below and the red industrial shelving. Breaking the rules in this case was genius.

Black and White is a classic. The style looks especially sharp with the use of bold lines. High contrast stripes and geometric pattern along with some sparkle introduced in the Lucite tables and chrome lamp bases are what make this room a stand-out.

I love the acid yellow on the wall of this room. The very modern and bold color has been softened here by architectural elements like the moulding and the layering of textures. The sisal rug brings a natural element to the room and the bamboo inspired table (I absolutely love this piece!) grounds the space. The light has been filtered through soft patterned curtains and a scalloped valance.

Black walls!! It creates such a dense feeling in a room and allows everything to pop. Colors have a whole new life when placed against a black backdrop. This fireplace surround would never have the impact it does here on any other coloured wall. I especially love that they carried the black right onto the floor but kept the ceiling bright white. The large crown mouldings almost allow the ceiling to wrap down into the room.
In the second room they have used a lighter floor material, added pattern to the ceiling and introduced a new color on the door. I think I would have carried that blue into the backs of the bookshelves for a little more interest! The little shell bookcase lights are very sweet and unique; I like how they tie in with the table pendant.

Last is this little palate of tiles I wanted to share. I am in love with #4. This Herringbone tile pattern would look amazing in a kitchen or bathroom!
