With a patterned Persian rug already in use in this home, interior designer Mary Margarett Nevin of Atlanta helped the owners find the right blend of color and texture in upholstery fabrics, furniture pieces, and accessories. This creates several focal points in the room. "If my clients do not have rugs at the beginning," Mary Margarett says, "I select fabrics first and then the rugs. If the homeowners already have some floor coverings that they would like to use, then I choose the fabrics based on them."
