Textures aren’t really something many people think about when they’re designing their home, and it’s something that comes naturally to a homeowner or an interior designer. If you’re reading this post while you’re sitting at home, take a look around at the textures that surround you, and see if you have a balance of rough and smooth.
Rugged brick walls can look fantastic with smooth marble fireplaces, while aged oak flooring can work perfectly with glossy white skirting boards. There seems to be some kind of chemistry between these two textures, and combining them really can bring out the best in your home.
Whether you have a contemporary home or a traditional property, you can create a mix of textures that works for you, but we always recommend you do your homework first, and plan out your design before rushing in and buying furniture that isn’t quite right.
