Texture in your Home
Establishing the ideal backdrop to love how you live can be daunting. It can be frustrating when your desire for a welcoming, comfortable home falls short. The design of your home can truly affect the way you live, with warmth and texture you can live and encourage a life surrounded by love and people.
The path to creating a home you love is paved with texture. To add texture mix fabrics and materials that contrast but compliment each other. If you’ve selected a velvet sofa, for example, you may choose to select leather or wood accent chairs. When mixing, multiple styles select tone-on-tone texture options rather than multiple different colors as the style will add some texture on their own. For colorful rooms choose more subtle rather than heavy texture, jute or hide rug rather than a flokati or shag option.
Current trends in home fashions have swayed toward more texture. No longer are you confined to one fabric or wood in multiple colors but in every aspect of your home you have endless options to bring in texture. And therefore, create a home you love to live in.
