There is a wall covering for all styles, even for men! Do you have a den or game room where the boys all hang out? Or a son who wants a "grown-up" room? There are so many sophisticated choices, especially from the Ralph Lauren wall covering collections.

Stripes are great for everything, and can defintely look masculine for a gentleman's room. This one from Ralph Lauren is called Palantine Stripe in Midnight.

How often do you suggest an interesting hue or higher sheen paint for the ceiling? Use a rich color or semigloss paint in the dining room to create ambience and drama or a soft pastel in a bathroom environment to assist with spa-inspired themes.

Wallpaper has gotten a bad rap, and it's time to change that. Wallpaper doesn't have to be what was in your great-grandma's powder room. There are so many more varieties today to make your home beautiful, and today I want to talk about texture.

There are so many different lines of wallpaper that carry textures.

You can do a natural woven texture like this one called Tortoise Shell in Sunbleached by Ralph Lauren. It's not just a picture, it's actually woven wood! How cool is that for a sun room or bathroom?

Patterns are hot hot hot right now in the world of design! They had interest and energy into a room and look great as accents. From wallpaper to drapery these patterns are everywhere.

Below are some of the hottest patterns right now according to HGTV's Liz Gray. You can check out her article here which has great information on each pattern
