Texture is key in neutral home. Even in home with color, texture plays a big part.
But today I want to show you how you can add texture to your space, and some of my own personal favorite items.
Probably the number one item I think of when it comes to texture, is a jute rug. I have them in several rooms in our home. I like to layer them with cowhides and kilim rugs.
These vintage demijohns are also another great way to add texture to a tabletop, or even a floor like I have here.
I also like to add vintage breadboards to bring in texture. I have them on top of my dining room hutch behind the white pieces above.
The wood chairs around my dining table were a great find at my local antique store.
Search craigslist or offer up for similar ones.
The picture below of our living room is an old one, but it shows texture well in a neutral setting.
The chippy wood trunk coffee table is a good example.
Of course the walls and ceilings scream texture.
Try ship lap for this look.
Back to the dining room.
Baskets add a ton of texture and storage at the same time, a win win. I love baskets with a grey wash on them.
Add a chunky knit throw and you have texture galore.
It keeps this neutral corner from looking too cold or sparse.
Do you notice what each picture has in common?
In every room, I like to add a touch of black to ground the space. It keeps things from looking to feminine and stark.
From a little bit of black in photos and picture frames, to black furniture, to bits of black in a rug.
I hope this inspires you to add a bit of texture to your home, I really think it cozies up a space!
