How to decorate with texture

Texture is essential for the success of any interior design scheme since it adds visual diversity to a room. Are you looking for ways to bring texture to your New York home, but don't know where to start? If so, take a look at our celebrity-inspired interior design tips:

  • Book shelves: Book shelves can create an exciting backdrop to your living room, and are also a great way to show off your scholarly collection! According to Elle Décor, Ralph Lauren displays his literature in chic lacquered shelving. If you're about to begin your spring cleaning, why don't you start by organizing your shelves?
  • Brass fixtures: To bring texture to her powder room, Cameron Diaz uses custom-made brass fixtures. The metallic look is right on trend as the blonde actress proves. If you're interested in adding a touch of brass to your own home, why don't you try metallic custom curtains and drapes? These features look great in nearly every room in your home. 
  • Mirrors: "Author Candace Bushnell's Manhattan living room is polished and bright in part to a vintage mirrored screen from Neo-Studio that is paired with a mirrored side table to reflect the light," writes Olivia Rassow, blogger for the source. Mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of space in a small room as well as add texture to the mix. Choose wide mirrors or ones in funky shapes like stars or moons to jazz up your décor.
