Using texture to transform the home

In the world of interior design, texture often takes a back seat to colour and furniture. However, it's one of the easiest ways to transform a space. By strategically incorporating texture into your home decor, you can create visual interest, evoke emotions, and enhance the overall ambiance of your living space. Whether it's a plush rug underfoot, a cosy throw draped over a sofa, or an earthy stone vase such as the Tarla, texture plays a crucial role in shaping the look and feel of your home.

Texture is a powerful tool for creating visual interest and focal points within a room. By mixing and layering different textures, you can add complexity and depth to your decor. For example, pair a sleek leather armchair with a chunky knit throw, or juxtapose a smooth glass coffee table with a textured vase and complimentary accessories, like the Kiwano bowl. The interplay of textures creates a dynamic visual contrast that captures the eye and draws you into the space.

Texture has the ability to set the mood of a room. Soft, plush textures like velvet and fur create a sense of warmth and comfort, perfect for getting cosy on a winter’s day. On the other hand, sleek, glossy textures like marble and polished metal exude sophistication and luxury, ideal for creating an elegant dining or entertaining space. By choosing textures that resonate with you on a personal level, you can infuse your home with a sense of personality and charm.


If like myself you live in a modern/newbuild house, an easy and cost effective way to add texture and visual interest to your home is through the use of accessories. Our Earth range is a collection of complimentary vases and accessories that can be scattered around your home, giving a feel of laid back elegance.
