Texture, Texture, and More Texture

by Courtney Crumby

The texture of an item is a great element of design to add depth to your space. Simply put, texture is the visual or surface characteristics of something. In other words, the texture is how an item looks and feels. One of the easiest ways to add texture to any space is using a mix of textiles. You no longer have to stay on a consistent theme of matching your textures, rather you can add depth to your space by bringing in different feels! Different fabrics and materials in rugs, throw pillows, blankets, bedding, and furniture will allow your room to have more character! 

In adding multiple layers of texture, you create visual interest throughout your home!
