Sample text

In interior decoration design, a piece of carpet would be decorative in two aspects: pattern and colour. Pattern is the language of carpets in the interior in that it is through patterns that the carpet communicates with and integrates into the interior, for the creation of a certain atmosphere in the space. On the carpet, there could be complicated contents of drawing, or, there could be simple figures only. In either way, a certain atmosphere in the space would be created. Likewise, the choice of colour could enhance the decorative function of carpets.

Usually there are two kinds of curtains in the interior. One is the curtain hung around a bed, which is separated from the rest of the space when the curtain is closed; inside there would be a closed, private space. When the curtain is pulled, it becomes a kind of decoration for the bed, revealing a sense of intimacy and romance. The other is used as soft partition to demarcate certain spaces. A comparatively big space could be divided into two or more parts. In this way, we could make use of space more effectively without breaking the elegance of it.

It would be more appealing when there are your favourite patterns on the curtains. 采用帷幔来创造一个柔软、舒适的空间,卧房是其再合适不过的选择。将帷幔设置于 床头,不仅在视觉上能够感觉温暖,更重要的是能够使人在心理上产生一种安全感。 再配上那些你所喜欢的图案,那就更加怡人了。 Fabric Styles 32 When the curtain is restricted around the headboard, it is more purely decorative, rather than of a practical sheltering function. As shown in the picture, the curtain is designed to be warm and elegant, being an integral part of the interior soft decoration of the room. 将帷幔的设计局限于床头,与其说具备实际的遮挡作用还不如说就是为了纯粹的装饰 而进行的设计。图片中向我们展示的帷幔设计,温和中透露出淡淡的高雅,成为室内 软装饰中的一处妙笔。 33 The decorative function of curtains in interior spaces is self-evident, while its practical function should not yet be neglected.
