Decorate With Layer

Decorate With Layer

The term “layering” is ubiquitous in fashion magazines and catalogs, from advice on how to best layer different knitwear to tips on introducing pattern and texture into your spring wardrobe. However, fashion isn’t the only place where layers can be helpful. Although it may run counter to the immediate impulses, “it’s okay to layer objects and objects,” says our designer Frances.

The next time you are redecorating a room or adding accessories, try to think of your space as a total work of art with objects that act as compositional elements. Place vertical elements such as lamps or vases in front of works of art, place works of art on stacks of books or even have the branches of a large fig-leaf fig stretched across your gallery wall. “They create depth and mystery,” continues Frances, “and the results may surprise you!”
