Interior Design Trade Tricks | Layers

Let’s talk about layers!

Layers in hair: good

Layers in cake: really good

Layers of fat (from said cake): the struggle is real

A key interior design trade trick resulting in a room full of character is the use of layers. Layering with accessories, lighting and art, gives a space dimension. When you give a space dimension, you infuse it with life. Think of an artist’s blank canvas: empty, boring, easy to overlook. Add a layer of paint and it’s an underwhelming improvement. It’s missing oomph. Here come the layers! And now we have a true work of art, rich with substance and meaning, evoking emotion. And simply, lookin’ pretty.

Here are some layered scenes that know how to live it up:
