Use textures to give character and style to your spaces. All materials have their own personality: wood, fabrics, stones. Knowing how to mix them, results in a pleasant space.
Based on trends, you can refresh your space using colors and textures to make it different adding your own style. Choose practical and suitable materials depending on the area where you will use them.
Textures generate sensations. In warm climate, you should opt for light colors and fresh textures that make you feel good. In cold temperatures, use soft materials to make the space cozy, both in sight and touch.
You must use special outdoor materials for rain, sun and natural use, such as tropical wood, plasticized fabrics, metals and textiles specially treated for outdoor use.
In addition to mix textures, you should consider what colors you want throughout the space. You should decide each element to be integrated, or intentionally contrast them with a piece of furniture or another item.
In interior design a wall with texture, whether stone, leather or any other material, is very important since it will be the accent or the main element of the place.
Smooth surfaces convey a sense of order and cleanliness very appropriate for a workplace, kitchen or bathroom. The more accentuated textures in rugs, curtains or upholsteries, give a room more warmth and they are ideal for the bedroom or living room.
Texture is as important as the color in decoration and should be chosen with the same care. A monochromatic space can be very dynamic if you play with several textures.
Light influences textures and colors by modifying their appearance. Just as shadows tend to accentuate textures, it should also be taken into account that bright surfaces reflect light, while opaque ones absorb it.
Texture combination makes the decoration more interesting and dynamic, achieving more pleasant environments. Don’t be afraid to play with contrasts, although you have to know, how to include them in their right balance since they can annoy or diminish the visual space of the room.
