Use texture to enhance the décor without detracting for your vision.
An easy and effective solution to spice up your home’s design without adding visual clutter: add texture. Here are a few ways you can use texture to add visual and tactile interest to your home, no matter what your décor theme!
Feminine: Soft, plush, downy-looking blankets and pillows can lend a gentle feel to a room. Floral embroidered fabrics are a great choice if you’re looking to add femininity. Choose overstuffed furniture with small, tasteful embellishments.
Masculine: Want to add more to a room without losing its masculine feel? Turn to metals – particularly burnished ones – and dark wood items. Leather is another great way to add a tactile focal point to a room and can be either classic or contemporary.
Modern: Modernism is all about clean lines. Mix it up and enhance the look by adding a shag rug, pillow or throw for a striking look against sleek furniture, smooth surfaces and taut leather.
Elegant: Want to give your home a luxurious, refined feel? Cut crystal is a great way to add depth to a room without adding too much color. Silks, cleanly polished woods and wools are other great options for adding texture in a sophisticated way.
Don’t forget your outside areas: Rocks, wood and textured cement elements can show off the greens and florals of your yard or garden. Opening up a wall of any room to the outside with lift and slide, multi-slide or Bi-Fold patio doors can give you a seamless view to natural outdoor elements.
