Add some shelvingThe texture on the wall of this living space has been created simply by installing a wooden shelving unit. The timber grid adds a tactile element to the plain white wall to give the seating area a cosy feel. Its position is pretty clever too – it overhangs slightly to signify that this area is a separate zone.Built-In Joinery Takes Homes to the Next Level

1. Mix things upShould your shelves be filled with pretty things? Absolutely. But just as important are the functional and sentimental items that make your house a home. Plants, photos, ornaments, art, vessels and vases – include them all. And as you do, be mindful of mixing up the sizes, textures, styles and tones of the items you display on each shelf in order to create variety and interest.Tip: Be careful not to over-fill shelves as they can quickly look cluttered. Instead, create a more open look by leaving plenty of breathing space around items – a good way to tell you’ve done well is if you can see the back of the shelves beyond the display.

Polished concrete, stone or tiles: These look classic in various shades of grey. Selected in this instance as an alternative to timber, they are also useful in wet areas of the home, such as laundries and bathrooms, where timber flooring is not as suitable.

Tennille Joy Interiors added this to Fabric Vs Leather: Which Sofa Best Suits You?15 February 2016

The downsidesFabrics with a high natural content, such as linens or cottons, tend to fade easily. Chenilles with no lining back will buckle and wrinkle easily, and textured weaves that are loosely woven will lose their elasticity over time. It’s worth having a plan of what you want before you tackle the shops. TIP: Ask yourself, is the sofa getting natural light? Do I mind the sofa wrinkling over time? Do I want a firm and formal look, or something squishy and soft? These are the big questions to consider before making your decision.

the shelving!! Even without the side shift, it would look great on the blank wall

darker flooring for added depth, hidden by the rug, but a nice example of darker concrete aggregate or possibly terrazzo
