Adding Texture With Scalloped Designs

Are there any areas in your home that feel a tad bit too “flat”? You know, those areas that are beautifully painted and furnished with¬† striking pieces but still missing something that you just can’t pinpoint? Chances are, the missing piece of the decor puzzle is texture. Often overlooked, texture¬† is one of those interior design elements that can completely transform a room and has the power to add tremendous depth, warmth and complexity. Scalloped decor is a great way to incorporate that texture into a space.

The illusion of texture can be added with various painting techniques. This scalloped border creates a softer "rolling" edge effect.
