8. A 3D wall surface panels the wall, creating a dramatic effect. The irregular patterned surface plays with light, casts shadows and adds depth to the space.13 Ways to Experiment With 3D Wall Surfaces
1. You have gone neutral, but it’s come off looking a little stark. How to warm up the neutral scheme?Solution: When sticking to one neutral colour family, the easiest way to make your bedroom cosy and comfortable is by adding varying textures and more layers to the space. A soft quilted coverlet thrown casually on the bed, a woven dhurrie, textured pillows, or even a silk lampshade on the bedside table will give your room a warm look, besides adding loads of personality. Remember, layering textures is not just about choosing various types of fabric; texture can be found in wood, metal, glass and more.Want to get neutral right? Read this
Length and widthCurtains should always be long – they should just touch the floor. Hanging curtains higher than the window will add height to the room. If you can, hang your curtains at least 15cm above the window frame. For a more dramatic look, hang them even higher, from the ceiling or just below the cornices. This will lift the eye and make a low ceiling appear higher. Remember that curtains should frame a window, so make sure hardware is installed to reflect that. A rule of thumb is to allow an extra 10 per cent of rod on each side, but heavier fabrics will require a bit more.When curtains are open, the space that the gathered fabric takes up is called ‘the stack’. The stack should not cover too much of the window itself when the curtains are pulled. Tip: To ensure that your curtains look draped when closed, curtain widths should be two to two-and-a-half times the width of the window.
