Bright coastal living room with a mixture of textures and stylesIf you’re looking to add a little more style to any space the best way to do it is with textures. Textures can be used in many different ways with many different materials. The best part is, you can use as many as you want or as many as you need.

Add texture to the walls with textured wallpapers or introduce a textured animal fur or jute rug on those wood floors. Textures are essential to creating a great space. They allow you to layer up a space without cramming stuff into it and make the room more interesting.

Imagine you are going for a modern coastal look in your home. If you try to keep it clean and minimal you will create a sterile looking space that may come off lifeless. When you introduce textures like metals, fun patterns or coastal accessories it brings your home to life.

The possibilities are truly endless with the available materials we have out on today’s market. Take a look at the pictures and notice the different materials the designers use in each space. More importantly, take notes on how the designers use specific textures in each space and what that texture accomplishes. You’ll be a texture wiz in no time!

:: Using Rugs In Layers ::

Coastal living room with layered rugs under the coffee tableWhy limit yourself to one rug? Layering rugs is a great way to bring more color, texture and depth to the room. This decorating technique is a great way to bring the space together with a larger area rug and then anchor a specific spot in the room with a smaller rug.

Layering rugs usually consist of a sisal or jute rug as a bottom layer because of their natural, neutral tones that allow you to add a pattern or color on top of it. Is this the only way or bottom layer? Of course not, but it is a very common one that happens to look good as well. Once you lay down your base layer, a popular choice for the top layer rug is an animal hide rug, faux or real. Other popular choices, especially in coastal homes, consist of striped rugs and colorful patterned rugs.

It’s fun to combine other colors, patterns and textures while layering to create the look you want. It’s a great exercise to flex that creative muscle and maybe you’ll shock yourself with a great looking combination that you would have never even considered!
