Interior / September 3, 2018 / Zion Fenton.
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.
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.
Dreary, gray, dilluted versions of true color are overused. Too many institutional creams. Creams can at times be lovely, but more often than not they are sad and feel dirty and dated. Instead of cream, opt for true, crisp white. Instead of sand, try cocoa. Any specific rooms that are great for experimenting with color? Dining rooms are a great place to try out your first move in the color department.
Usually gather in these spaces at night, a time when a deep color, such as claret or aubergine, illuminated by candlelight, draws you and your guests to the table. Powder rooms are another, which should be treated as little jewels and departures from the rest. It you think of the way we describe certain emotions, seeing red, feeling blue, green with envy, there is no denying that color and mood are inextricably linked.
