A touch of tex­ture

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES -

The wicker oc­ca­sional tray-ta­ble has a nice ca­sual qual­ity, which bal­ances the for­mal­ity of the din­ing ta­ble in the back­ground. It pro­vides tex­ture as do the floor plant and dried grass in the large vase. Tex­ture is needed in this area be­cause there is lit­tle tex­ture to be found in the smooth fur­ni­ture up­hol­stery and low pile area rug. The lack of win­dow treat­ments is a pleas­ing ef­fect but again, no tex­ture. A sim­ple way to add tex­ture to a space like this would be by adding a dec­o­ra­tive che­nille fur­ni­ture throw to the chair. vide ar­chi­tec­tural de­tail along with tons of nat­u­ral light. The lack of win­dow treat­ments was a cal­cu­lated choice to fea­ture the lovely paint colour. In re­al­ity, most of us need some sort of win­dow treat­ment. In a room like this, you’d want to choose treat­ments in keep­ing with the look. If you have great win­dows then opt for treat­ments that fit in­side the win­dow frame. White, custom Plan­ta­tion shut­ters, custom shades or even sim­ple café cur­tains would fit the bill. De­pend­ing upon your needs, you could also treat the ac­tual win­dow panes with a sand­blasted or tem­po­rary frosted de­tail. If your win­dows are less than spec­tac­u­lar then choose sim­ple, floor-length drap­ery pan­els that will add di­men­sion and a bit of tex­ture if needed. In our fea­ture room, a fawn-coloured faux suede treat­ment would look fan­tas­tic, for ex­am­ple.
