Variegated Plant [genetics]

Does anyone know any of the genetics involved with plant variegation? I 
think I could guess how some plants produced variegated patterns on the 
leaves/stems, when they are a regular, standard pattern on all leaves. 
However, I have a plant growing at home (I dont remember the name of it) 
which has a completely random pattern of variegation on every single leaf 
- they're all unique. 

Any ideas/pointers to info on this subject?
