Nature Inspirations - Texture
Ever notice how the “Lamb’s Ear” plant is irresistible to touch? It’s so soft. And what about those lime green prickly balls that you see lying under trees this time of year? What kind of tree are they from anyway? I don’t know. I do know that I am drawn to the texture of them. What about birch bark? Gotta love that, right? Take a look at your living space? Does it have different textures to touch, feel, and look at? Are all your upholstered pieces made with the same fabric? Is everything all leather? Not good ... too much smooth. Imagine all leather furniture with a glass coffee table and mirrored end tables. This would be too much smooth. The opposite problem can too much texture. A log end table, shag rug, nubby fabrics, baskets and tweedy blankets, the space may be have too much texture. Good design mixes different textures from smooth and slick to rough and rugged. Happy November!
