There’s something about patterned curtains that can really make a room pop. Dramatic black and whites can dress up the windows and dress up the room. Even in the bathroom you can create a over-the-top, feminine appeal with some paisley curtains or even some toile prints that look fabulous in a vintage-inspired space. You may even want to use oversized curtains, even on small windows, for a bolder finish.

4. Wallpaper.

Don’t be scared of wallpaper. It’s making a comeback in a big way right now. But even more so, don’t be afraid of black and white wallpaper. It’s design-worthy and modern and you don’t have to use it on the entire wall to get the feel and look you desire. Floral patterns or even stripes may be just what you need in the dining room or breakfast nook for an unsuspecting stylish surprise.

5. Rugs.

A throw rug can really turn a room around. In an all-white, crisp living room all you need is a thick striped rug to create depth, texture and vision. And if you like more intricate patterns you’re in luck because they add lots of edge and youthfulness to any space including: home offices, kitchens and bedrooms!
