Window Treatments and Texture
Window treatments are a natural outlet for texture. Fabric choices for draperies and curtains, as well as the fabrics and other materials available for blinds and shades, are enormous and varied. Texture can be enhanced by the way fabric is hung. Pleating, for example, creates a play of light and shadow that looks three dimensional. You can combine layers of fabric and blinds to show off different textures
Texture doesn’t have the obvious impact on a window treatment that color and pattern wield, but how a material feels, as well as how it looks, does influence an arrangements design. Incorporating a variety of textures in a room adds to it’s richness. A mixture of textures plays upon the senses and adds another layer of complexity and sophistication a design scheme As with every aspect of decorating, mixing textures involves a balancing act. To give a room a distinctive character you might let one texture predominate the room, but the right contrast can make the scheme intriguing.
Some Thoughts on Fabrics and Texture
The easiest way to incorporate texture into a design is with fabric.Brocades and Damasks, Moires and Chanilles, Tweeds and Chintzes, conjure up different looks and sensations. Coarse and Matte surfaces such as Tweed, Wool, Tapestry and Velvet absorb light and sound. Glossy and smooth surfaces which range from Silk and Satin to Chintz and Taffeta, reflect light.
Texture affects a room spatially, Course or Matte fabrics that on the window will make a room seem smaller and cozier. A living room of only glossy surfaces can appear impersonal and too expansive without tapestry draperies to make the space more snug and and to add textural contrast. Smooth and shiny fabrics do the reverse – they make a room look larger and brighter. a study that feels stuffy, for instance, may benefit from pale- colored Silk curtains. Light reflected off the fabric will make the space seem more open
Keep in mind that texture can either soften or enhance a pattern. For instance, patterns are crisp on glazed Chintz, but are blurred on terry cloth. A coarsely textured surface tones down the intensity of a color and gives the color subtle variations High-glass surfaces increase the intensity of a color. Think of how the gray color of a tweed jacket looks “heathered” and muted. On a Silk shirt, however,the same gray color would look shimmery and more intense intense completely different effect. Of Because the fabrics weave affects the color, always test a sample of the material in the room
