The use of textures provides an opportunity to warm up colder, darker spaces within homes. The trick with textures is to achieve a balance, to create a combination of different textures across a range of materials, but beware, don’t be tempted to add too many textures, or it may leave your rooms looking busy and cluttered, and more chaotic than relaxed.
Feeling the texture with fabric, the attraction of touch

Work on the texture of the wallpaper

If you’re integrating new design elements with traditional features, you can create attractive pieces of furniture from natural materials, such as rustic logs.Renewing your old wooden doors is another way to add a unique touch to your home by incorporating the much-loved texture of wood. From mirrors to chalkboards, coat racks and chairs, you only have to look around to find something suitable to be revived.
