Layering

Have you thought about layering as a design strategy? It's a beautiful and practical trend that's growing in home fashion. Layering brings a mix of colors, textures and styles into perfect harmony and often provides important functionality.

Think soft rugs atop gleaming hardwood or tile floors in the living room and great room. Consider fluffy throws and textured pillows heaped on sleek sofas and, of course, lots of decorative pillows adorning your bed.

At the window, layering is key too, for both fashion and function. The first layer can be a light-filtering one, providing the soft diffusion of light, or it can provide privacy and light control. A myriad of shades or blinds can fill this need. Then add a decorative layer to finish the look, with soft treatments such as valances, draperies or Roman shades.

You'll like the look when you layer your home fashions!
