Design Tip #28

Texture, texture, texture!

Don’t be afraid to use different textures to liven up the look of your space.  Contrasting textures will enhance the total visual experience and give the room a sense of depth.  Engaging both your sense of touch and sight, texture can liven up the most boring space instantly.

Amazing things happen when elements with diverse qualities are brought together.  Look around your home and count the different textures.  You can combine varying finishes, colors, surfaces and even time periods to create a new look for your home.

A few examples: a tumbled stone backsplash with glass accents, a fuzzy white sheepskin rug on a warm mahogany wood floor.  Play around and most of all—have fun!
