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.
