Select a statement piece

Every room needs one statement or hero item, something that will surprise, delight, and affect your room. This may be a big piece of furniture in a bright color, a fantastic rug, a work of art, or a feature wall – anything guests will always notice when they walk into the room.

 

Make layers

Curtains should never be hung at half-mast; instead, ensuring that they ‘kiss’ the floor or puddle beautifully,’ advise Heal’s design experts. Curtain panels must be one and a half to two times the window’s width. Double-width fabrics are ideal for extra-wide windows since they have fewer fabric seams.
