• Adding texture to a room to create interest

    So, you’ve moved into a new house or you’re making over one of your existing rooms at home.

    You’ve picked colours, paints and you’ve considered any changes in flooring plus furniture and window dressings, but have you thought about texture too?

    Many of us tend to overlook adding texture to a room when we are re-decorating but it is just as important as colour and pattern when it comes to creating interest and definition.

    One of the easiest ways to add texture is by using textiles. For example, cushions in a variety of different tactile fabrics or throws in bedrooms and table linens in kitchens and dining rooms.

    Incorporating wooden items or plants are also great for bringing a more natural textural element to a room too.

    Natural woven baskets or wooden boxes serve two purposes. They are great for storage, while also adding texture. And darker coloured baskets placed on light coloured shelving contrast really well, adding more interest to your room.
