Simple Palette and Subtle Pattern

The May issue of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles had so many beautiful interiors, I just can't help coming back to it.  One of my favorite spreads was on designer Margaret Bosbyshell. Her decor for one of Buckhead's old homes is full of color and pattern, but the use of pattern is very subtle and muted. Despite being in virtually every room, the intricate looks she uses are not the first thing you notice. For those who are afraid of too much texture in a room (or for even the fearless!) this home is a great guide.

Pattern, pattern, everywhere - can you spot all its uses in this room?

Patterned walls and chairs!

Really lovely use of color and pattern-traditional, yet very fresh and modern. I love the last picture of the dining room especially-I would love to see more pictures of it.

Very pretty; if only Houston had such a stylish interiors' magazine of its own, too!

Style Redux - I agree. What really struck me about these rooms was how LITTLE the pattern stood out - yet it was everywhere.

Averill - I can't believe Houston doesn't! It's a very stylish city! Maybe you should work on fixing that :)
