Interior / June 26, 2018 /
The complimentary furnishing fabrics were key with rich velvets and a thick, lustrous silk rug specified to bring tactility to the scheme. We took much consideration to select the right sofa that framed the bay window and gave a focal point with soft interesting curves. This grown-up space is further defined by the jewellery dressing of a warm Roll & Hill globe pendant light, and metallic flashes of brass in the seating and floor lamps.
The textural elements of a room often get over looked. Interior designers are schooled and excel at this textural design secret, a neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures such as rough hewn wooden elements, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets. If walls are painted in a bright orange, for example, then the bold color takes center-stage, making any textural elements disappear into the backdrop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when done properly, but it can make a room feel unwelcoming by omitting a layered, textural design.
