It never goes out of style. The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual.
Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline or center of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. The average human eye level is 57 inches. And you should do the same. In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember, it needs to relate to human scale, not the structures scale.
Texture is particularly important if you are working within a particular color palette where the shades are very similar. When a monochromatic or analogous color scheme, make sure you choose items that heavily contrast. When they come together, they will bring a sense of harmony to the space. All that reasoning as to why you should use texture is well and good, but it only goes so far if you do not know how to effectively bring it into your home.
You do not need to fill up a space with lots of furniture. Spend more of your budget on fewer but better quality pieces, and your room will look better than if it is stuffed to the gills with flea market finds. The high backed chairs shown here, for example, stand out because they do not have to fight for attention. Hang artwork at the right height.
