1. Special Effects Decorating for 2003
The high gloss, hard finishes of hi-tech are out of style. In are the soft textures reminiscent but slightly different from the 90's.
You will see these textures in furniture, fabrics, walls, carpeting, clothing, ceramic tile... everywhere! Examples include
dry, matte texturing from walls with murals and wall coverings. Oxidized exterior, iridescents and brushed nickel have replaced the pearlescent finishes.
Complex woven looks in rugs and fabrics, with slubbed yarns in the window coverings and draperies. Prints are also taking on a more textured, three dimensional look.
See and feel the warmth and coziness of a heavily textured fabric for your home.
