What are Textiles? In interior design, the term “textile” refers to any product that’s woven or made of fibers or fabric. Fabric, area rugs, carpeting, and tapestries are all textiles that bring warmth, visual interest, comfort, and acoustical dampening qualities to a room.
Today, most homeowners desire a master bedroom en suite, a quiet place to wind down from the challenges we all face in a typical day. A bathroom connected to the bedroom creates something of an oasis from the daily activities in the common areas of a home. But separation and privacy are only half the equation for creating a retreat.
Bohemian style or “boho” emerged in the late ‘60s as influences from Africa and the Far East became popular in interior design as well as in clothing. The style is embraced by people who appreciate the vibrancy of multiple cultures and celebrate a world view.
A thoughtful attic remodel will create customized space and may increase resale value while allowing you to stay in your current neighborhood and not have to uproot the kids from school.
While you are exploring fabrics and color, always consider the use or function of the room and the mood you wish to create. The use of soft neutrals, mid-range colors, and gentle patterns helps to control visual noise and therefore calms the environment. Alternatively, an exuberant color palette with multiple active patterns will bring life and energy to a room.
Perhaps you’ve seen images of inspiring rooms featuring unexpected combinations of mixed metals and thought, “I would love to update my kitchen or bath just like that!”
