Furnishings to soften your space.
In the January issue, House & Home identified the new, soft and layered approach to modern decorating as a 2011 trend, and these items can help you get the look. Various shades of silvery blue give life to what could otherwise be a ho-hum sofa, vase and pillow, for instance. Subtle tufting on the sofa complement an otherwise sleek design, and a golden yellow mohair pillow adds texture and warmth to a room.
