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.
Basically, how thing feel. Think about squishing soft carpet between your toes, running your hand along a rough wooden tabletop, or sinking down into leather couch cushions. Honestly, think that the sense of touch part of the definition should be revised to say perceived sense of touch. Anyone who is ever watched an interior design TV program or flipped through the pages of a magazine can tell you that you do not need to have physical contact with a room to feel the power of texture.
