Elegant Moldings. When a client's home has historic character, I never want to cover it up. Shades mounted inside the window frame, paired with eye‐catching trim, allow light control without feeling fussy. If you don't have historic molding, a window is a great place to add some. It's a smaller task than lining a whole ceiling, and you can do it in just one room.
Use quilt patterns in new ways. A traditional quilt pattern takes on a new use as a wall tile pattern in this bathroom. Designer Suzan Fellman recommends choosing a grouting color that matches the colored tiles, as she did with the grout between the red tiles here.
Work in some caramel leather. Interior designer Brandi Hagen had fun playing with her client's penchant for Western style in this sitting area off the master bedroom. A coffee table upholstered in warm‐colored durable caramel leather anchors a bedroom sitting area. Western prints, a colorful horse painting and a graphic Thomas Paul thoroughbred pillow round out the accessories, while a restrained color palette keeps things from turning too themey.
