Interior / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran.
If this scenario feels familiar, you are not alone and we might just have the answer you need, texture. For some reason, texture seems to always to be an afterthought when it comes to interiors and we are here to change that. Our reasoning, texture is the thing that makes a room pop. It is what brings a perfectly fine design up to enviable levels.
Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline or center of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. The average human eye level is 57 inches. And you should do the same. In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember, it needs to relate to human scale, not the structures scale.
You want the color that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else. You can pick that color only if your stuff is actually inside your home. Give your furniture some breathing room. Resist overcrowding a room. Gracious living means space to maneuver with ease. This is really great news if you are working with a tight budget.
Do not worry if this all seems new. We are here to offer you a brief primer on the importance of texture, as well as how to effectively apply its design tenants in your own home. You will be crafting complexly textured rooms in no time flat. In design parlance, it is often defined as the sensations caused by the external surface of objects received through the sense of touch.
