Style Secret: Textural Surfaces
Highly textured walls, ceilings and floors hint at the traditional materials and construction methods that characterize Southwestern style. Choose stucco, plaster and adobe with a rough, hand-troweled appearance, enhanced by decorative paint treatments and offset by thick, coarsely woven fabrics.
But remember ... Layers of texture stand out most when they're broken up with smoother surfaces. Incorporate sleeker materials to keep from creating a space that feels one-dimensional.
