It’s easy to go overboard when making decisions with yellows especially when they are not in the same palette. Often the best way to know what color yellow works is with trial and error.From shade variations to pattern, you need to create visual hamony with yellows. By far the happiest color in the spectrum, yellow is always apt to cheer up a room and lighten a mood. Don’t feel like you have to stick to just one shade or pattern. Experiment a little. Just stay in the same color palette.

Tips for Decorating With Texture

April 23rd, 2014

Using a variety of surfaces and layering materials is key to making any room more interesting.

1. Decide on a Look

Shabby Chic – Holzlatten in frechen Pastelltönen
Figure out if you want a cozy look and feel or if you want a streamlined look is what you’re after. Choose wood, plush fabrics, woven surfaces, and natural fabrics for the walls and fabrics. This adds texture to a room for a cozy feel. Try some different materials. The best rooms have a variety of surfaces which can create a perfect balance.

2. Create Balance

To create a balance in a room use upholstered furniture with highly textured materials. Use animal prints or even leathers. You set the stage for your room depending on how traditional or modern your choices are.


3. Use Nature



Draw in inspiration from nature. Use feathers, branches, shells, dried blossoms, horns and stones. Use anything unexpected as decorative objects from the outdoors. It helps with tying everything together.


4. Make it an Accent

Texture can be used in place of color. Instead of accent colors think about accent textures and surfaces. Designer textured like fabrics bring in splashes here and there in your room, whether it be pillows or upholstering your favorite chair in a natural material like wool or silks.


5. Play With Lighting

Lighting can play a critical role in adding textural surfaces to any room. Some materials and objects reflect light, others can create visually interesting shadows. So don’t be shy and move things around a bit.


6. Transform Your Walls

Walls are a great surface to play up texture. Choosing wallcoverings with texture using grass cloths, paintable wallpapers, leather -wall tiles, and anaglypta wallcoverings can have a huge impact on any room. Using desingner wallcovering will set any tone for the room on how you want it to look.


7. Moderate

As with most things, texture should be used in moderation. Start with your key areas such as the walls or furniture, then build from there. Knowing where to start is important, but not as important as knowing when to stop.

Do Your Eyes See Red

It doesn’t take much for red to make it’s presence. It certainly doesn’t go unnoticed. The color Red is for every style. It’s vibrant, demands attention, gets your emotions going and is extremely dramatic and lively. This is why many designers use Red.

From the deep merlot reds that grace your sophisticated traditional space to a rich cranberry red that adds simplicity to your transitional space. Its a great contrast to most colors.

But most designers only use Red for accents or to try and energize your space. Are you feeling bold and are you looking for a big impact, use Red.


Reds hues can range from orange reds to blue reds, light shades to dark shades. Different reds take on different personalities depending on which color red speaks to you. Are you looking for that barn country red or that persian scarlet red, whichever red it may be it will give depth and dimension to any room.
