Anna Franklin believes that the best designs don’t give up style for function. The Milwaukee-based designer behind Stone House Collective has an affinity for blending classic colors with contemporary patterns to create eclectic spaces that exude warmth and elegance.

Its flat lay – replete with rich earth tones and organic textures – offers a prime example. Adhering to a neutral palette, Franklin uses a true range of sinuous lines and natural materials to forge a “restrained” scheme with “timeless appeal”.

The end result is a harmonious blend of airy hues, tactile finishes and the occasional touch of a graphic pattern. “Dashes of contrast aren’t just visually appealing, they also make an interior feel more homey and inviting,” says Franklin. Home business.

Here, Franklin breaks down the details, from silver tile swatches to black-and-white wallpaper swatches.
