Use a accumulation of textures on seat and fabrics to supplement interest and depth. Here, that comes from raffia on a chests, a corpulent woven nap carpet and velvet on a bar chairs. A contemporary light on a mantel doubles as a musical and organic element. Covering a homeowner’s existent chair in fabric to compare a new chair unifies a space. Paint a grate approximate white to discharge a dim focal point. A neutral sofa, area carpet and wallcovering are offset with colorful accents to keep a space interesting. A gradual blue potion console with a colorful flare reflects a light from a brook window and acts as a organic backdrop for a sofa. Add a silk palm tree to alleviate a dilemma and inject a healthy regard to a space year-round.
