Ask yourself this: "What do I want my home to feel like the minute I walk into the door?" Do I want it to be a quiet oasis with soothing color palettes? This can be achieved by layering multiple patterns in fabrics and soft luscious carpets. The soft surfaces not only absorb irritating noise, but also insulate the interior space. What's more soothing than kicking off your shoes and wiggling your toes in the soft carpet.
