A hint of rustic roughness here, a splash of sultry silkiness there – every room needs something irresistibly touchable to give it extra oomph. Here are seven ways to satisfy your tactile decorating desires:
1. Get down.
Kick those shoes off, because your toes are in for a treat. The plush, furry rug in the photo above must feel like walking on a cloud. Wouldn’t those fuzzy fibers feel good on your tootsies after a long day?
Meanwhile, a natural-fiber rug such as this sisal one brightens up a room by adding a ropey, summery texture. It feels so much like the beach, you can practically smell the salty air.
2. Look to your linens.
In a bedroom, where linens take center stage, a dash of texture can make your bed even more inviting. This puffy, pintucked comforter makes you want to snuggle in and curl up for a good night’s slumber.
3. Don’t forget the furniture.
Texture packs an extra punch if it’s found in the furniture, especially if it’s the focal point of a room. This rustic coffee table looks like it was hewn by Paul Bunyan himself.
4. Think about throw pillows.
They’re inexpensive, interchangeable, and oh-so-fluffy – throw pillows don’t just brighten up a space; they also add a dash of whimsical, huggable texture.
5. Pot those plants.
Think of them as accessories for your room, only they do so much more than add color – they also clean your air and liven up your space with some tactile interest.
6. Don’t be afraid to double up.
There is such a thing as too much texture, but don’t be afraid to echo a particularly cool design. This bamboo coffee table and wall hanging buddy up to pack a one-two texture punch in this living room.
