This broken zig-zag pattern is a designer favorite because of its ability to add texture and dimension to otherwise flat or "blah" surfaces. Snag a herringbone throw to dress up your sofa, or go all in and recreate this gray-washed, wooden herringbone wall to add coziness to a contemporary bedroom.

Chinoiserie is about as charming as they come. According to Merriam-Webster, this classic pattern first gained popularity during the 17th and 18th centuries, after King Louis XIV erected a Chinoiserie-clad home (for his mistress!) at Versailles, in 1670. Many people collect the ornate pattern on blue-and-white porcelain jars and plates, but this ruby-red wallpaper proves Chinoiserie is no one-trick pony.
