Your home should speak to who you are. It should be like a personal memoir of your trips, your loves, your life. There is nothing worse than walking into someones home to be greeted by beige walls, brown furniture and one mass produced print on the wall, pretending to be art. The above mentioned room just screams BORING! and we know our readers are far from boring. So, do not be shy when it comes to your home decor.
The textural elements of a room often get over looked. Interior designers are schooled and excel at this textural design secret, a neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures such as rough hewn wooden elements, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets. If walls are painted in a bright orange, for example, then the bold color takes center-stage, making any textural elements disappear into the backdrop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when done properly, but it can make a room feel unwelcoming by omitting a layered, textural design.
