It makes sense that the home of an interior designer is a special and unique place, and The Telegraph recently explored the home of Allegra Hicks, a place of colors and textures.

Hicks put a special emphasis on layers. Rugs and fabrics are the focal point of many rooms in the five-story house. Even the walls are decorated with a colorful fabric embroidered with silver beads, a pattern that Hicks designed herself.

She also focused on creating a conversation between the different pieces of furniture by adding different styles of accent tables beside couches.

"Complementary colors speak to each other as in a dialogue. I like to encourage such conversations, which create pleasant visual tensions," Hicks told the news provider. She added that she believes each room should stimulate all five of the senses.

To this end, she touches up spaces with natural forms, such as coral, as well as fresh flowers, scented candles and music.

For homeowners looking to add a vibrant texture to a room, custom drapery can be ideal. These window treatments will serve to enhance and insulate a room, but can also be tailored to a room's specific design needs.
