Pattern + Texture: Exposed Brick + Beams in Townhouse

This townhouse makes good use of texture to provide visual interest. For example, exposed brick, rough-hewn ceiling beams and a plush leather ottoman help set the tone of the great room. The bedroom takes a different approach, though, using visual texture through a dynamic wallpapered accent wall.

Contemporary Living Room With Exposed Brick

This townhouse living room feels so cozy and texture-rich with its exposed brick wall, ceiling beams and pretty fireplace. On either side of the fireplace, twin ladder shelves add storage that still shows of the beauty of the brick.›

Wicker Armchair and Ladder Bookshelf

A lovely wicker armchair perfectly matches the color and texture of this ladder-style bookshelf. A tall basket is the ideal place to stash extra pillows and throws, no further organization required!

Contemporary Living Room With Leather Ottoman

This handsome living room uses darker colors on the floor and a few accents, then keeps the walls and larger furniture, like the sofa, bright white. The choice adds dimension to the space while maintaining an overall airy, light look.

Exposed Brick Wall and Piano

Wood and gold accents go beautifully with the warm red tones of the exposed brick wall. The painting over the piano is a playful nod to the brick's mottled texture.

Contemporary Open Concept Living and Dining Room

This townhouse uses texture and subtle color contrast to add visual interest and graceful depth to its open concept living area. Exposed wood beams unify the different areas and pull the eye across the room.

Gray Staircase With Plant

The steps and railings of this stairway are painted a soft gray in graceful contrast to the crisp white walls and molding. It's a pretty way to add subtle visual interest to an often overlooked space.

The palette in this bedroom is kept simple and light—gray and white with a few natural green touches. But the look is far from boring, thanks to a dynamic wallpapered accent wall.

Eclectic Bedroom With Gray Wallpaper

Wavy walllpaper and a plush, colorful rug fill this bedroom with unique personality. Houseplants are a pop of life.

Book Stack and White Vase

No bookshelf? No problem! A stack of books makes a colorful mini table, just right for the small space between two windows.

Gray Bathroom With Black Tub

Here's a chic twist for a clawfoot tub: Paint the exterior black. In this bathroom, hardwood floors and dove gray cabinetry keep the look sharp.

Gray Bathroom With Soaking Tub

Turkish towels are a refined touch in this bathroom, where a large soaking tub and marble countertops complete the petite room's spa-like feel.

Eclectic Nursery With Goose Lamp

This nursery features style more sophisticated than many grown-up bedrooms. Simple gray walls provide a basic backdrop for interesting art and fun details like the goose lamp. A Southwest-style throw brings in rich pinks and orange.

Blue Bathroom With Patterned Floor

This bathroom's cement tile flooring in a delicate blue and gray pattern is elegantly highlighted by walls and paneling in soft blue. The floor can be an ideal place to try out a bolder pattern; keep walls quiet to avoid overwhelming a smaller space.
