An isntant gallery gets created on an otherwise hard to decorate accent wall in a high-traffic area. It's the black and white photo treatment that can take a lot of unrelated family photos and make the feel more harmonious. Try adding a small block of wood behind each photo board for even more depth if placed in a less busy area of the room. Christopher Lowell

In the theater we used this technique to add depth especially in painted sky backdrops. This is a good illustration of how to acheive the gradaded effect on an accent wall in you own home. This assures that a very strong accent color still gets introduced into your room without dominating it. Don't be afraid to try this with neutrals too (Charcoal to pale grey). Christopher Lowell

If you feel challenged dealing with color, try focusing on non color. Here the high-key environment is driven more by texture with one single dramatic accent of black. Notice that the black starts at on the wall (the shell of the room) then in pulled into the center of the room with the candle sticks on the coffee table. Christopher Lowell

A great way to extend store bought drapes is by adding a boarder. However the rod here should have extended at least 6" wider on each side of the window so that it didn't shroud the view. The rod could have also been hung as close to the ceiling as possible to elongate the space.

This timeless space integrates tonal low contrast elements with one accent color but what really works is that this often shared space (bedroom) is non-gender specific meaning both he and she can live with it.

This chic and eclectic room is timeless since it's layered with solids and geometrics like the chevron rug never go out of style. Remember it's pattern/prints that are the first to date spaces. Also note the use of aqua starts at the shell of the room in the simple pattern-free drapes then is brought into the center of the room with the tufted ottoman. Same with the black. From the wood trim to the chair then under foot--for visual balance.

Black, white, and turquoise make a graphic splash in fashion designer Liz Lange's house in Westchester County, New York. Decorator Jonathan Adler designed most of the furnishings and accessories, including the living room's generous ottoman upholstered in Hinson's Montauk Texture in Aegean, the Herringbone rug, and the black patent leather Regent armchair. Knoll Barcelona chairs from Design Within Reach.
A black and white chevron rug is a timeless and stylish basic that can be used in any room, with any color or style decor. I love the turqoise ottoman and drapery.

Using drape as an alternative to doors is such a great idea--however, the rod hung low over the arch gives the room a rather short squatty feel. When hanging any drapes for better visual balance, place them up towards the ceiling as far as you can. This will elongate the room and make it feel much taller.

Before & After: Romantic Bathroom Re-Do | Paper and Stitch
Bedroom - The clean neutral palette of the walls and the furniture brings out the lively earth tones of the the bedding and the flowers. What a serene space to wake up feeling refreshed and at peace. The owl by the nightstand, the bow-tie curtains, and the crystal table lamp are the extra special touches that make this space one of a kind.
Note that there is no skirt on this bed. leaving it as is, visually lifts the bed and create a far lighter feel to the room then had there been drape to the floor. Sometimes less is best.

Great, soothing pallet but what gives this the real designer look is the very high upholstered headboard. Often a few things done in larger scale add drama where lots of little stuff won't. CL
