Fabrics make the most impact when used in unexpected ways. A braid-trim dado, anyone?
Mix primitive daubs with fine-lined prints to add depth to an all-white scheme. Ink blots optional.
Soothe the eye with on-trend ombré paint effects.
Faux-stone finishes trick the senses.
Increase the glam-factor with brass finishes..
Subtle graphic designs help transform a simple look.
Cocoon yourself in swathes of linen.
Choose a corner to create a place for preening. Sheer fabrics ensure a light and breezy feel.
Mixing textures in a pared-back space keeps things chic and sophisticated.
