Delectable Duet: Texture and Detail

Have always loved contrasts of 
textures, whether in clothes or interiors,
where a wispy little edge of texture
can add just the perfect detail.
The Madame Rose collection,
by the young Pamela Usanto label,
plays with contrasts of fabric textures,
in delicate little details like lacy cuffs edging
chunky heavy silk
It's a contrast of rough and smooth: 
of dense fabric with delicate edges,
of pink suede heels with smooth floral satin,
of glossy dark timber veneer with matt white walls,
of coarse linen curtains with a silk brocade chaise,
which create this 
Delectable Duet 
of Texture and Detail.

    Its so funny that you told about your embarraced kids becauce thats how my daughter reacted. She first tried to descretly stop me from taking the furniture and chairs, but ended up running down the street looking for a place to hide!

  10. Such a great commentary. This is an integral part of the way I design spaces but I've never put into words before nor compared texture with fashion in this way. I'm not a fan of 'decorating' or dressing with lots of patterned fabrics,,,,I find the composition and contrast of texture is more interesting, more effective and timeless. I am in LOVE with the dress and shoes in the last photo - to die for!!
