To make texture and included levels, the rooms aspect accents of colour and quirky household furniture to cut by way of the neutrals, and a persuasive art collection. “We have utilized customized tapestries with geometric patterns, and huge hand painted artworks by myself and huge outsized white pottery vases, which I also intended.”
