What Houzz contributors are saying:
Style Secret: Textural TouchesYou can't rely on color to punch up a transitional space, but texture rises to the challenge admirably. Coarsely woven fabrics, natural fibers and a blend of matte and shiny finishes lend a sense of layering and help the room pop. Think leather, sisal, burlap, chenille, rattan and more — any material with tactile appeal will fit right in. Don't go overboard, though, or you'll lose the sleek elegance that's so essential to this style.Look closer: The textures pile up subtly but steadily in this bedroom, from the matelassé coverlet to the wood-framed TV to the rattan desk chair and window blinds. Beaded board on the ceiling riffs on the honed floor planks below. The mélange adds just enough interest without overriding the restrained feel of the space.
If you have a wall of windows that almost stretch end to end, add lightweight panels between them to create an illusion that there is no break between each window. This is a great look when using non-functional (stationary) drapes because functional drapes could require more widths of fabric, which gets costly, and you end up with a bulkier look that will allow in less light. If you need privacy for this look, use a shade mounted behind the drapes. Hang the rod longer than than where the windows end to create the look of wall-to-wall windows.
