Let's Talk Texture

There is no doubt that the interior design world is going crazy over texture.  Mixture textures is huge and here at Mod House, we think that this trend it here to stay.  It might be an easy thing for the pros but how can you effortlessly put this trend to work in your home?  Here are a few tips that will have you mixing it up in no time.

  1. Think outside the box. Have a big boring wall?  Try some interesting wallpaper (yes it is back and we all have to accept that).  Believe us when we tell you that the modern designs are not your grandmother's wallpaper.  It you still aren't sure, go for a self adhesive type that can easily be peeled off.
  2. Not sure what to do about that old sofa or chair you haven't gotten around to replacing?  Try throwing a big faux fur throw, pillow, or sheepskin on it and watch it transform.
  3. Plants!  Not only are they good for you, cleaning the air and making you happy, they can add a ton of interest to a space.  Just be careful of the plants you pick if you have pets.
  4. Luxurious Fabrics: Velvet, Satin, Leather...The list is too long but we love them all.  They can transform a space from boring to fabulous in a matter of seconds.  Try a leather rug or a velvet sofa.  They are sure to be conversation starters.  And you get bonus points for going with a bright color.  We love the Margot Sofa by Gus Modern.  
  5. Straight from Nature.  Bring the beauty of nature inside with live edge tables, tree stump accent stools, and marble.  These classics are right on trend now but will never go out of style. Looking to start small?  The Macaque Teakwood Vase can be incorporated into any room. 
  6. Baskets.  Never underestimate a good basket.  They can keep you organized while looking great.  We love that more are coming from sustainable materials like bamboo and hyacinth.
  7. Boho Fabrics and Weaves. These are great for pillows and wall hangings to add interest, color and texture to a space. The Anaruz Wall Hanging is a great mix of textures with a structural geometric design plus it adds a little glamour with the metallic threads.
