When decorating your bedroom, it is essential that you create a space that is congruent with your personality and needs. Find what makes you relax, what calms you, what creates a feeling of peace and go with it. Be bold, even gaudy, colors and patterns, or a room full of faded antiques and neutral tones, you will need to have texture and depth so that your room feels finished and your eyes have something to feast upon. With or without a bold color palette these textures can give a sense of completion, and will create a fixed idea of what it is you are trying to communicate through your style.
A great way to add texture to a room is to choose a woven bedspread. The weaving patterns are very visible, even though you do not know that you are detecting them. A traditional woven pattern is the damask pattern. This dates back to medieval times, and in the old homes of nobility, the mask tapestries and bedspreads were a sign of wealth and luxury. Damask patterns included lions, dogs, people and complex scroll patterns. Due to the intricate weaving of these patterns, they were completely reversible, though the color seemed a little odd when the backside was shown.
Modern day damasks are typically screenprinted, though many are still woven.
The woven patterns are harder to come by and may cost you more, but the texture is worth the price. The screenprinted patterns, though, are not without appeal, and he gives much-needed life to a room that is lacking in bold patterns. Whether used in pillows, drapes, lampshades or as your bedding set, damask is a beautiful, rich pattern that can go with almost any style.
