Emerald Sitting

Jonathan Rachman swathed this San Francisco home in dramatic, hand-painted wallpaper, then carried its verdant character throughout the room by carefully curating the furnishings and accessories. A jade-toned velvet Chesterfield sofa, velvet armchairs, forest green upholstered bench and an array of vintage glassware on the mantel extend the gorgeous shades of green throughout the space.

Into the Blue

Southern California designer Erica Bryen emphasized the marine blue that begins on this living room’s feature wall and carries it through the space by reaching for background tones like gray-veined marble and an area rug in a similar hue. Those choices focus the eye on blue-green cabinetry, leather armchairs, window treatments and ottomans.

Rosy Glow

Feature walls are all well and good, but in a blush-on-blush space like this one, the power move is a feature ceiling. The wallpaper used here both reflects light and deepens the hints of petal pink in the drapes, toss pillows and area rug.

Beyond the Pale

Overscale, semicircular sectionals are unquestionably the stars of this opulent white space, where the expanse of upholstery is a near perfect match for the walls and hearth. The tone maintains crispness with just a hint of black on the exterior doors, coffee tables and chandelier.
