The smallest patterns and intricate embroidery can add style and craftsmanship to a room instantly. Delicate and intricate patterns are the little details that create style and structure in a space, perfectly finishing it by crafting fine details that give your space basis.

Italians have always had a niche for textile design. The framework of Italian architecture is impeccable and sets the tone for quality design inside the home.  Italian mills have created gorgeous fabrics for centuries, and the craftsmanship is not often matched.  Mills like Fortuny have been producing gorgeously luscious fabrics for well over 100 years.

Your color scheme sets the pace for the rest of the design throughout the room. Choose colors that complement each other and go for bold with a pop of color like this mustard yellow. Translating these colors into textiles and fabrics complete the room and essentially create a higher level of style in your home.
