Framing windows with long curtains and drapes is a wonderful way to add glamor and personality to a room. While traditionally, curtains are used to cover windows for light control and privacy, they’re incredibly versatile and suit a variety of purposes. The decorative effect of the drapery is now very often underestimated. Sometimes the design fit only blinds, but most of the window is her jewelry, her great disguise. The curtains are spacious windows and let the room air friendly. We must not forget that they decorate, but also divide spaces and hide. Curtains can be beautifully shaped and decorated. You can also add creative design elements such as bows, ornaments, candles, and much more. Fabric versions soften the harder edges of a space and pull color and pattern into a room to complement the other decorative choices. Long drapes of fabric that hang from rods are a timeless choice that gives a room softness and height when suspended from ceiling to floor. Window panels can be solids or patterns, casual or formal, and are hung with rings, grommets, or with a rod pocket. Take a peek at the variety of styles that we have available in at Tivoli Camengo and Erre Erre. Some of the highlights are the top quality sheer fabrics and chenille curtains that give a modern vibe to the house’s ambience.
Give bare floors a quick and easy makeover. A rug may be considered an accessory, but it can be the foundation of a gorgeous space. More than just a piece of textile to keep your feet warm it’s good to jazz up any dull corner of your house, or to lend your pad your signature touch. That a rug is all that, and more, is what we point out in Tivoli, the CTS Fabrics with their our range of rugs, wants to point out. The most popular material in rugs are wool but synthetics and viscose make up a huge market share as well. Many people ask what material should they choose and the answer is always wool. However, wool tends to have a higher price point compared to synthetics. Viscose is used as a replacement to silk. It has the same feel as silk but lays like wool. It also has the advantage of being a little easier on your pocket book but keeps in mind, nothing beats true silk. Use a rug to define or separate areas, such as seating or dining areas, and foyers. This is especially useful in studio apartments or larger rooms that need definition. When using more than one rug, it’s better when the rugs complement each other in style. Use a favorite rug as the basis of the color scheme in a room. The overall design of your home should be considered when making your choice as well. If the floor has a contemporary design, then the rug you choose should mirror this look with a graphic print or a damask. For a traditional wood floor, you may want to consider a braided rug or one with a floral pattern.
Don’t settle for plain drywall. We have some ideas to add instant appeal to your walls. A beautiful wall treatment is sure to enchant, whether you opt for fabric, paper or a hand-painted mural. There’s no quicker way to reinvigorate a room than with paint color, texture, and patterns, whether you choose a solid hue to coat all four surfaces, a vibrant color for an accent wall, or an interesting visual effect, such as stripes. With Marburg, it’s also the easiest finish to apply and change whenever the mood strikes. While Romantic florals and graphic shapes have made their way onto everything from bookcases and closets to ceilings and framed art., wallpaper reaches its full potential on. To moderate the intensity of pattern in a room, consider the scale of the repeat and the color; more dramatic prints work better in smaller doses. Try a floral feature wall in the bedroom, statement geometrics in the living room or a folksy design for the ceiling of a kid’s room; there really are so many unique ways to hang wallpaper in your home.
