“Use layers of beautiful fabric and textiles including Persian rugs, pillows, floor cushions, wall tapestries, hallway runners and curtains. Many Arabic-inspired interiors feature fabric-covered walls and ceilings, producing a tentlike effect. Fabric can be layered over tables, chests and benches or framed as wall art. Rustic fabrics include hand-woven goat, lamb and camel wool. Luxury fabrics include silk, satin, cashmere and velvet. Mix patterns with narrow and wide stripes, zig-zags, Arabic calligraphy and various abstract or geometric designs. Add fringe and tassels to pillows and curtain tiebacks or look for items that already have them. Cover windows with elegant swags, cascades, jabots, scarf valances and pelmets”
