What Houzz contributors are saying:
Tip: It’s best to hang heavy fabrics like carpets and kilims on specially made tapestry rods and not regular curtain rods, as the former are stronger. This gives the heavy fabric the necessary support and it hangs straighter since its weight is distributed equally across the rod.
4. Be adventurous with textures and patterns This room has abundant textural contrasts that give it loads of personality. From the industrial ducting and warm exposed brick to the richly patterned Tibetan rug, satin bedspread, antique brass, parquet wood and Tiffany lamp, it exudes character. A bedroom with a high ceiling like this one can support many elements without being overpowered.
3. TextilesIf you have interesting, oversized windows or a nice view to frame, think about adding dramatic, oversized window treatments to create a feature wall, as has been done above. Or mount a tapestry or carpet above a bed or sofa for an instant dash of colour and texture, as shown at left.Check out these 6 unique window treatments
