Playing With Textures


Textures are in, and it’s time to embrace soft velvets, suede, and textured corduroy. Vastly different, these fabrics are both sophisticated yet durable, and can match beautifully with darker color schemes.

Corduroy, which is comprised of twisted fibers that form a “cord,” is a rigid form of velvet. Wider wales on a sofa, which is the width of the cord, brings about a homey feel to your space, while wider wales on throw pillows pack a punch of pizazz to neutral pieces in your interior.

If you’re up for mixing textures, try combining leather cushions with corduroy throws to add interest to your seating arrangements. Be brave with your upholstery choices, and if bringing an eclectic feel to your space is the look you want, mixing textures is your route.

The Color Purple


From lavender to plum, the color purple has become growingly popular in recent years. Once considered to be girly, shades of purple are being used not only as accent pieces, but also to bring life to people’s walls.

Deep, dark purples imply luxury, a sense of seriousness, and formality. Dark purples are the tones that are best to be used boldly, such as an accent wall in your home. In kitchens of silver and white appliances or cabinetry, purple provides a wonderful backdrop for the other tones in the interior.
Softer shades of purple, however, bring a soothing, clean and fresh atmosphere to your interiors. Light purples can soften masculine pieces, while on the opposite end of the spectrum, in a bright room, the purple is cheery and upbeat. To use a soft purple, consider bringing lavender to your walls in a bedroom, where you’re looking to create a relaxing environment.
