When you want to play with texture, look first at the material. Leather, wood, fabric, metal or faux fur would all impart something different to your design. Start with a white leather loveseat and two metal chairs, and pair them with a cozy black throw blanket or rug. Next, add pattern and details with statement accent pillows, such as ones with black/ivory patterns in chevron or geometric shapes, or coralline black tassels.
Throw rugs give warmth and can add great texture, color and personality to your living space. Hardwood floors are beautiful and easy to maintain but they lack the comfort that carpeted floors offer, especially in the cooler months. Area rugs can add fun and functionality to your living space. Use several of varying patterns and fabrics together to showcase your character. Or add several rugs of the same pattern and fabric, or different textures but the same color.
Over the past year, shelf styling has taken over our Instagram feeds. In fact, just a cursory search for the term #shelfie fetches over 1.5 million posts. If you would like to jump on the shelfie trend, we recommend going for display units and other storage furnishings that feature an open shelving design. This is a great way to show off all your favourite knick-knacks while also bringing colour, personality, and life into the living room. To get that Pinterest-perfect look, arrange your items by height or colour. It’s also a good idea to take inspiration from the rooms colour palette so that your display ties in nicely with the overall look of the space.
