Last week, we talked about accent lighting, and now we're giving you more tips to spruce up your space! This week: TEXTURE! Adding rugs, throw pillows, and blankets to a room are all great ways to do this... but what about your walls? Adding textured paint, stone or brick walls can be impactful (as well as time-consuming and permanent), but the addition of wall art is a simple and easy solution to add texture to any room! Mixing photos, framed art, textiles and signs are all great ways to get more texture in your space. Statement pieces like this Wood Slice World Map Large Wall Art work great as a stand alone piece too!

"Why add texture?" you might be thinking... Well, texture ATTRACTS THE EYE and is essential for ADDING INTEREST to a room. Introduce some diversity in the way of a chunky-knit throw, rustic timber furniture or even a leafy indoor plant. These earthy objects will work wonders to add a sense of soul to your home. 

Texture also softens the acoustics of a room, reducing the echo and making the space feel more cozy! Textiles are a great way to do this; funky rugs and tapestries or wall hangings dampen echoes and make a room feel even cozier!

Take a look at this little gallery wall from Nicky! Our Wood Slice State Map Sign and Choose Happy Round Wood Sign add great texture and variety to her framed art and photos!
