Think about it, if everything is too similar, our eyes have trouble focusing and tend to glaze over. Use texture to make sure your most important elements pop. Restraint, of course, is also key, so try not to go too texture crazy. Stick to two or three distinct textures in any single space. Choose three when you want people to take in the space as a whole and stick to two when you want to emphasize a prominent focal point.
As you get older, you become much more conscious of those learned reactions than the innate ones. On a bleak day it would be so easy to throw on a pair of jeans and a slouchy sweater, but throw on something from spring, a green mini skirt, fun fringe booties and a sweater with evening jewelry. That makes an impression on everyone around, but it also makes feel cute.
