A touch of texture
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.
