Textures to Sooth the Soul

Adding texture in your home can simply be achieved by using different fabrics and textiles, including items with varying dimensions and having multiple prints, patterns and layering fabrics.  Textures help you define the type of lifestyle and character you want your rooms to exude.  One of the easiest ways to add textures is by adding different fabrics throughout; leathers, linens, chenilles, velvets, chiffon, wools and much more. 

For me, texture embodies all things that trigger our senses.  A room that gets alot of traffic should have great colors, sensational fabrics, eye catching prints, pleasant smells, soft sounds and even a sweet treat.

Check out these ideas to add texture to your room.

Here is a chevron patterned throw rug that would look fantastic paired with another pattern on a throw pillow or curtain that has the same hue of yellow grey and off white. It's like wearing a printed wrap dress with a different printed belt. It works! http://www.etsy.com/
