Textures & Textiles...
When Creating an environment that is soothing & beautiful replace, Color with Texture.
Keep a Neutral Palette & Use pieces that have Textured Surfaces to bring Interest to your space.
Introduce Textiles such as Burlap-Canvas-Natural Linens.

Add Burlap Drapery for the Textile & with a Ruffle for the Texture & dimension.
Keep colors calm & neutral with a White Canvas Sofa
Vintage Whitewashed Library Cabinet
 Natural wood Coffee table & Basket to top of Cabinet bring it all together.

Use White & Cream Linens for the furniture pieces-
Use a Mirror-Old Luggage & Books to show some texture
While the flooring & Furniture is in Soft whites-
Try this Industrial Cart as a Coffee table & add some flowers
( Gives you a textured surface & soothing colors)

Old Doors are perfect for Interest
Natural Linen sofa & Planked flooring
are a wonderful Mixture & Soothing to the eye.

In any room you can apply these principles-
Wood Flooring-Natural Wood Hutch
Canvas seats-Linen Drapery in same shade of white
Beautiful  Crystal Chandelier give you a
calm-pretty-dining area

Adhering to same color palette-A large Gold Chalkboard -gives you a pop of color above an Old Sideboard

 (and practical)
Old Wood Crates are a lovely way to bring in Texture to a large surface area and create a Rustic-but neutral environement.

keeping with same shades-tones- only changing up the texture is what makes your space feel relaxing & comfortable.
