Black and white, different qualities and different dessins can be easily combined without any problem and give a very modern look. Hand drawn dessins for a fresh and uncomplicated touch, they will make it less classical. Perfect combination for a teenagers room as they can still personalize it with adding some posters in black and white or even strong colors. Add some wood to give it a warm touch.

The classical grey pin stipe design for wallpaper can be used in offices, hall ways, bedrooms. You only have to change the colors, brighter, and they will fit every kids’ room. Grey tones are a perfect background to match all different colors, You have to add color in case grey is the main color in the room, if not the room will feel without any energy. Small jacquard weaves can bring the inspiration for mosaic floors. You see, a timeless inspiration which will look refined in combination with some modern design pieces.

The master bedroom is often the most romantic room in the house, floral wallpapers will find its way easy in this room, all depending on the personalities living there, the style of the house. Why not giving this room a more masculin touch? I love the neutral colors in combination with the warm tones of the wood. A play of graphical motives, will make it very interesting and refined room.

Tweed fabrics will make us think of English country side houses with their rustic feel. Combine them with a colorful plaid to be prepared for the cold winter months. Using a heavy wool tweed for a sofa can be very sophisticated, but depending on where you live that wool fabric on a sofa can be to warm during the summer months. Something to reflect on before deciding on this option. I’ve seen beautiful tweed effects also in heavy linen, this will be a better option, you can add wool throws for the colder months.

Classical checks in colors taken from nature are perfect now for autumn. They will fit a more traditional interior, a country side home, or an office. Add some floral wallpaper, of heavy embroidered linen curtains to give it a feminine touch. Don’t be afraid to combine checks and flowers, just keep them in the same color harmony.

Which clan do you belong to? Choose your tartan, or choose more of them and make an unexpected combination. The strong colors will make it always striking. Combine with dark wood and don’t forget to add white if not it will be to dark.
