• How to add texture to a room

    When it comes to redecorating, most people overlook adding texture to their room, but it is just as vital as colour and pattern if you’re keen to create an area of interest.

    One of the simplest ways to add texture is by using textiles. For example, use cushions in various different fabrics, quilts, throws, blankets, tapestries, tablecloths and napkins.

    Sumptuous velvets create a decadent, hunkered down, over wintering feel, while lighter linens evoke a summery vibe. Both have different tactile appeal.

    Adding weathered wooden items or plants will help bring in a more natural textural element to a room as well.

    Woven bags, baskets or boxes are great for storage, while also adding texture too.

    And darker coloured items placed on lighter coloured shelving really contrast well, adding more interest and depth to your room.

    Don’t be afraid to try things out and move things around. Experimentation is all part of the fun of enjoying your home and making the most of it.
