Fiona Weeks' Design

Fiona Weeks

Known for her inspired use of color and pattern, Fiona Weeks pulled the room together with warm tones and lively fabrics. "Colors don't have to be strong or overwhelming to be intriguing to the eye," says the Maryland-based designer. The cantaloupe shade on the walls and the pale blue on the ceiling derive from the floral fabric on the armchairs. "The wall color is unusual and inviting," says Weeks. "The sky blue ceiling complements the walls and upholstery and picks up the stripes in the area rug." The result, she says, is "a finished look that's not too sweet."

TIP: Don't forget the ceiling. After all, it's part of the room. Apply molding, color, or even wallpaper to that forgotten expanse, and your room will have a more finished look.
