Learn to decorate and transform a space through fabrics, colors, textures, and fibers

A course by Chío León

Textiles are a versatile decoration material that, when used properly, have the ability not only to dress up a room, but also transmit feelings through the sense of touch. According to designer Rocío León, founder of Chío León Studio, textiles are a world of their own within the interior design universe and stand out as one of the fastest ways to transform any space.

In this course, learn how to work with and incorporate textiles into your interior design and decoration projects. Discover when it's best to apply one color over another as well as how to experiment with textures, such as linen and cotton, and qualities, such as twill and velvet. By the end, you'll know how to design spaces that awaken all five senses using fabrics.
