A secret to a rich and full of depth room is to master a layering. Blending multiple different sources of texture taken from upholstery, materials, plants will elevate any room and add a touch of luxury. If your home contains a lot of monochromatic colors and not a lot patterns, try to create an interest by juxtapositioning a few textures together– you will see the multi-dimensional result right away.
Texture on furniture is not to be missed. Especially as you have a such intimate contact with it. Either it is a desk chair made out of rattan, or a cool marble table with naturally-formed little cracks and veining – all furniture has an immense opportunity to add both visual and tactile appeal.
Textured vases, storage boxes, plates, sculptures, trays, - even clocks can also add a wonderful sense of textural interest to a room. Our tip is to purposefully create an arrangement of objets with alternating and editing various textures to make a statement in your home. However, it is important to select textures that are sympathetic to one another, to avoid having too many textures that might clash together.
The difference in form, petal and leaf shape, height, colour and vessel all produce a textural effect on a room’s decoration. Try to choose the blooms or plants that link to other textures in the space, such as the glossy verdant leaves of an oversized palm linking to lacquered, strong-lined furniture. Our tip: make sure any vases match an existing texture in the room as well, such as upholstery on the sofa or textured lamp base.
Lighting is another feature in the room with a possible texture aspect. The look and feel of the lamp itself might play a significant role in providing texture. A high-polished chrome floor lamp adds a very different texture to a hammered bronze ceiling light, example. But it is the rays of light themselves where texture takes on a more visual character, so think different fabrics, materials when choosing shades as well.
