Foliages and dried materials.

Another crucial design component is texture. Combinations of foliages or dried materials can produce strong textural effects within a design and play an important role. Varying forms, sizes, and colors can provide interest and mass. As a quick refresher for material ideas or to aid in color selection, use the following index. Commercially available items listed in the book are loosely grouped here by color categories: gray, green, variegated, and natural brown/tan. The perishable product color is listed here for foliages but keep in mind that many are available preserved and/or dyed into decorator colors. Dried materials are listed by photograph colors.
