Getting it Right
- Like pattern, texture is a very important part of your interior design considerations - or at least it should be.
It is very easily overlooked.
I mean, there are so many other things to think about, when interior designing a room scheme.
- Texture is worth thinking about, though.
It is another beautiful finishing touch to your room. Get it right and it will give your room life and soul.
- Texture can bring a touch of luxury, substance and interest, to an otherwise, nicely done, but flat and boring home decorating scheme.
So, read these interior design tricks and study the interior design advice, on this topic.
And get ready to make your interior design shout and sing (in tune, of course!).
My Top Texture Tips
- I try to bring a touch of texture to all my rooms.
My personal favourite - and oh so trendy right at the moment - is to include a faux fur throw, or fluffy cushion.
If these conjure up visions for you of '70's and '80's style, hideous car seat covers - relax - it's nothing like!
The new faux fur textures are tasteful, luxurious, sophisticated and sensual. And, definitely seen in all the best room designs, right now!
In fact, I love my faux fur throws so much, that I have one in each of the bedrooms, one in the lounge - and even one that I take camping - they are so warm, cozy and cuddly
The cat loves faux fur throws too - more than me...!
(I let him off 'cos he's cute!)
Anyway, onto my interior design tricks for using texture in your rooms:
Add Texture to One-Color Schemes
Go for Gloss
- Shiny or glossy textures, like tiles, gloss paint, mirrors, glass furniture, chrome, lacquered dark wood, silk and satin, tend to lend a sophisticated feel to your interior design scheme.
- Shiny surfaces reflect light back into the room, making the room feel lighter and bigger.
- But, take care you don't use too many glossy textures - or your scheme may feel a little cold and clinical.
Take the Rough with the Smooth
A Word of Advice
Just always remember - add some texture, have fun - but keep a balance - and don't overdo it!
