ADDING THE ARTISAN TOUCH
There is no doubt that bold colours make a statement, but as the bright accent walls stay behind in 2018 you are probably wanting to create an impact just as dramatic. Texture may not be the obvious choice, but it adds depth and dimension to your space, being appealing to both the tactile and visual senses. Follow our guide for how and where to use texture and your home will thank you.

Other tips for curating texture in your space include:
- Create a focal point, from which you can build. An item becomes a focal point because of its size, colour, or unique design and shape.
- Build layers of texture and let them mingle in a concentrated area to create an impact. Pairing a blend of glass ceramic and different linens on the dining table will invite people to come closer, touch feel and instantly gather together.
- Let opposites attract to pull the room together and create a finished look. Pair rough and smooth textures to harmonise your space and create the perfect textural illusion.
Of course, as with anything the key is to create a balance. Finding the right balance of textures for your home is important, so choose your style, go forth and start decorating. Share your texture transformation with us and your post may feature on our social media platforms.
