Keep in mind textiles include and aren't limited to throw blankets, rugs, pillows and cushions, tapestries, curtains, and upholstered furniture. cushions and Once you have it down, stop by your local Home Goods store to find the textiles and start reimagining your work space.
For something invigorating and inspiring, don’t be afraid to add some textures such as velvet or burlap accents to add an organic flare to your space. For a serious and more focused energy, try selecting deep blue shades of textiles. For a more clean and polished feel add subtle pops or bold colors with pillows or throws. If you’re thinking adventurous and fun, give a warm color area rug a try. And for those of you that love dramatic effect? Have a bold colored upholstered chair or two.
