It’s always amazing how a little design know-how can turn even a fairly inexpensive material like subway tile into a stunning design feature. In this historic Portland, Oregon, home, white subway tile with dark grout creates a graphic element, especially used in such a generous dose and to wrap the bathtub.
Similarly, a beige-and-taupe scheme in this Boston living room signals that sunny afternoons are meant to be spent quietly reading on the Belgian linen-covered daybed.

For this new penthouse apartment in Chicago's River North neighborhood, design firm Cari Giannoulias Interiors created a masculine look in the master bedroom, perfect for the home’s bachelor owner, with graphic drapery fabric from Larsen Marlon. A boiled wool rug from Oscar Isberian and grasscloth wall covering from Phillip Jeffries add depth and comfort to the space.
