Things We Love: Woven Texture in Every Room

Beach house living room
Andrew J. Howard Interior Design

Good morning, chic reader friends. After a rainy, rainy day yesterday, we are ready for a little sunshine and to get out and about. Nothing says “bright and happy” quite like this fabulous room by our friend Andrew Howard. This is also a room that proves the power of texture.

Blue and white sitting room with woven blinds
Suellen Gregory Design

Just a hint of it totally changes a room. Aren’t these woven blinds wonderful? They add the right touch of a little something extra.

You know we love our neutrals. What keeps them from looking boring? Great textures, of course! Just a hint of it takes this coffee table from simple to stylish.

Living room with vaulted ceiling and black pendants
Serena & Lily

Our hands-down favorite way to add texture to any space is with a natural fiber rug. From a formal living room to a casual playroom, natural fibers work well in any room.

Studio McGee

Mixing up the materials is a great way to add dimension and style to a kitchen. We’re big fans of these great pendant lights.

Woven barstools at kitchen island

Speaking of texture in the kitchen, these barstools are oh so chic.

Three-dimensional art always makes a statement. Baskets are a great way to make it unique.

I have a hanging swing chair just like this in my bedroom–and it is one of my very favorite things–and adds an air of fun to the entire room.

belly basket woven add texture
Serena and Lily 

We are loving belly baskets right now, especially when there is a pop of color added to them.

Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles

Life is better with an outdoor shower, no doubt about it. A pebble floor and a basket full of shower essentials make it all the better! What’s your favorite way to add texture to your space? 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Prospect + Vine

Blue is the New Black

Designing a room can be tricky–especially if you’re a super visual person who is trying to make decisions based on ideas. But, even if you aren’t close to a showroom, Prospect and Vine , a fabulous new company that we are LOVING, creates a virtual one that you can peruse in the comfort of your own (soon-to-be-fabulous) living room.
