House Goals Talks Texture

Bigger is not always better when it comes to space. It’s not about how big the space is, it’s how well you can manage and use it. Welcome on board texture and layout. Texture is not just how rough something is, texture is a feeling, it’s a sense of movement and dimension. Texture is shades of light, shapes, movement or anything 3d. Tactile textures stimulate everyone’s sense of touch, some more than others. Some people hate touching cotton wool, some love it, some people love the feeling of sand between their feet, some people hate it. Create a happy home by carefully selecting the materials you use and love. Soft cashmere throws, luxurious bath towels all add to the super popular ‘hygge’ effect. When choosing your flooring remember texture. The warmth of Timber is always homely. However, be mindful not to have a timber table competing with a timber floor, break it up with a rug if needs be. Carpet can be lovely and warm under beds and sofas. Polished concrete can have a fascinating movement and tones in its material, just be mindful of echo. Big spaces, especially vaulted rooms, and tiled spaces need lots of big woollen throws and rugs to tame the echo but layering these textures can have amazing affects. Sofas, dinging chairs, flooring, bed linen, towels are all very important to not compromise on the sensual effects. Not only do the feel warm and beautiful next to your skin, they make rooms feels cosy and inviting. Timber furniture pieces, especially those with rustic finishes, add warmth to a room and connect your home to nature. Welcome young children and guests into your home and be proud that they want to feel your beautiful interiors, they will instantly make a connection to you and your homely home. Unlike colour the more texture you layer in a space, the better, however be mindful of the seasons, no one wants the weight of a woollen blanket on them in the winter. Indoor plants and any natural materials from nature can really pack an inexpensive punch when it comes to layering textures and feelings.
