Sometimes we get so caught up in using graphics or patterns as an enhancement that we forget the power of texture. As seen on the runway for this spring and summer, color, pattern and graphics have moved aside for the play of texture and the softness of white.
Layering sheers, meshes, velvets, string and other textures has a powerful impact. This mixture plays with our senses, grabbing our interest both visually and texturally. This same mindset we see in fashion also holds value when it comes to fabric architecture and interior spaces. With so many material options available, creating a masterful play on texture is easy. From white, to color, capturing a brand with color is a great alternative to overplayed graphics.
