The Art of Texture: Adding Depth and Interest to Your Interiors

Interior design is more than just selecting colors and arranging furniture. It’s about creating spaces that engage the senses and evoke emotions. One of the key elements in achieving this is the art of texture.

At Distinctive Designs’ one-stop shop design center, we believe in the power of texture to add depth and interest to your interiors. Here’s how to master the use of texture in your home design.

Start with Fabrics

Textures often begin with fabrics. Experiment with different textiles for upholstery, curtains, and cushions. Velvets, silks, linens, and chunky knits can introduce tactile richness.

Layer Rugs

Layering rugs with various textures can create a visually dynamic and cozy atmosphere. Consider a shaggy rug over a smooth one or a natural fiber rug atop a soft, plush carpet.

Wall Treatments

Textured wall treatments, such as wallpaper with embossed patterns or textured paint finishes, can add depth to your walls.

Natural Materials

Incorporate natural materials like wood, stone, and leather. These not only introduce texture but also a sense of authenticity and warmth.

Decorative Elements

Accessories like throw pillows, blankets, and decorative items should represent diverse textures. Think of hammered metal, rough ceramics, or soft fur.

Artwork and Sculptures

Art can introduce textures in the form of paintings with impasto textures, sculptures with intricate details, or mixed-media art pieces.

Mix Patterns

Combine different patterns with varying textures for a harmonious yet interesting look. For example, pair a smooth, striped wallpaper with a tactile, floral fabric.

Contrast Smooth and Rough

Contrast is key to highlighting texture. Consider juxtaposing smooth surfaces like glass or metal with rough ones such as reclaimed wood or stone.

Utilize Lighting

Even lighting fixtures can play a role in introducing texture. Chandeliers with crystal accents or lampshades with intricate weaves can create captivating plays of light and shadow.
