Feng Shui Interior Decorating Yin - Yang - Textures, FabricsInterior Design Checklist

Many clients come to me with questions regarding interior decorating and the use of textures. Textures and fabrics offer a great way to enrich one’s environment.

The right combination of fabrics and textures will enhance the mood and feelings associated with the Decor. I had a woman client who spent thousands of dollars for the “Tommy Bahama” look. She began to sense that the color and style were not quite right, putting her off from entertaining guests.

With a few changes of textures, colors and added patterns we turned her place into an Island hideaway with a Key West feel that made entertaining fun and inviting.
