It never goes out of style. The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual.
Slip on a tailored LBD and you instantly feel chic and sexy or pop open a sunny yellow umbrella on a gloomy day and some of that sunniness will undoubtedly rub off on you. There are several reasons why colors are able to influence how we feel. We react on multiple levels of association with colors, there are social or culture levels as well as personal relationships with particular colors, which forecasts color trends.
Texture is particularly important if you are working within a particular color palette where the shades are very similar. When a monochromatic or analogous color scheme, make sure you choose items that heavily contrast. When they come together, they will bring a sense of harmony to the space. All that reasoning as to why you should use texture is well and good, but it only goes so far if you do not know how to effectively bring it into your home.
Create a focal point. There are leading roles and supporting cast members in any production. The same holds true in design. Choose your star and make it the focal point to anchor a room. Allow other items to take a secondary role. Do not ask everything to have a leading role, it will just result in visual noise. Your focal point might be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, a mantel and art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom.
