✤ Tips for the Trade ✤

✤  Tips for the Trade  ✤

The design technique of employing a single fabric throughout a room is steeped in historical tradition. 

In the time of Louis XIV and Le Grand Siècle, monarchs—and those who took their cues from the royals—would upholster entire rooms in matching silks and rich damasks to achieve extreme elegance while displaying their wealth and class. 

 

Today, using the same fabric can enhance unusual architectural details, harmonize a large space, or create a dramatic effect.

  

 

✤  Serene Spaces  

 

 

Create an intimate, everlasting cozy retreat in a bedroom by covering the walls, bed, and window treatments in the same pattern.

Even elaborate patterns become almost neutral when used everywhere.
