I have recently dug out several rooms into the side of a ravine next to my base and now I'm trying to design them. However I'm not very good at finding block types that complement each other. Can you give me suggestions for what go together well? Also could you suggest various patterns? So far I have a sandstone/log/plank room as well as a Nether-themed room. If you'd like to know what I'm doing, I've been writing about it here. Thanks!

Iron blocks and Lapiz blocks go really well with each other

I find Stone and Stone Bricks to work well, too.

Stone slabs, Stone and wooden planks go PERFECT together. trust me on that. Try to make the room like this:

Roof and floor and roof of stone or stone bricks, then the wall of wood. then you replace the top row of the wall ( I have rooms thats 3 blocks tall, and the uppermost row is not planks ) To Stone slabs. Looks incredibly good.

Give it a try!
This is my signature.

...what? Did you expect something funny?

I like cobble as the floor, stone brick as walls.

Some other designs : Sandstone + Nether Brick
Cobble stone + Netherack (In texture packs, only some of them)
Double half stone slab with anything
Stone brick and sandstone
Wool on floor and wood as wall
Stone cobble stone-brick

Stone Bricks, Nether Bricks, and Planks

Also add a few sandstone and dark logs

For lighting, do the ceiling out of dark leaves with lapis blocks ontop, and a ring of glowstone around the leaves.

I always use raw wood and planks, definitively a classic.

I will have to try this. I've got a couple stacks of brown wool and no ideas for how to use it.

I like lapis and gold blocks-- It has an ancient Egyptian feel.  But it is kind of expensive.  Glowstone goes pretty well with cobblestone or obsidian.
I don't know anything cheap that looks good though.  It is either planks and cobblestone or a room fit for a king: no half way for me.
The wiki exists for a reason.  Don't post asking something you can look up.  Here is a link, in case you can't find it.

Sanstone with dirt blocks with grass on top for the floor is my favorite if you can get some emerald blocks I think it looks awesome with obsidian. If your looking to go cheapy on the rooms I would suggest stone brick and the white wooden planks I always liked them with some redstone lamps for lighting
