Texture Adds Interest
Textures also add interest and variety to transitional spaces. The muted palette of this living room is complemented with interesting textures in the wall hanging, jute carpet, decorative basket and a throw knitted with chunky yarn.
Recessed lighting helps keep this space uncluttered. Learn how to install recessed lighting for dramatic effect.

Not Too Masculine, Not Too Feminine
