Submitted by on Friday, 3 June 2011 | No Comment

Every room in your house should have different textures.  The key to adding texture to your living space is choosing different fabrics and finishes to give the room depth.  Often people think that by adding colour a room can look different, however adding texture offers more subtle but youthful changes to a room.

Inspired by the fashion catwalks adding texture to your living space seems to be the key this season and it can be fun to experiment. There are not set rules or boundaries however one key thing to create a dose of the texture is being creative with your fabrics. Think about you walls, floors and accessories.

Whether you’re updating your current living space or redesigning it altogether, the simplest of changes can transform a boring and uninspired room into something lifelike and vibrant. For example if you have a simple leather coloured couch, cover it with some printed pillows.
