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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

Just like falling in love or choosing the perfect dress, good taste is something we can’t necessarily describe. But we know it right away when we see it. So, when we ran across the work of Sandra Meyer of  Ella Scott Design, we knew instantly that we wanted to see more! Her work hits the right high notes between traditional and modern so that every element seems perfectly in line.


Luxe Laundry Rooms

Liz Caan Interiors

My laundry room does not look like this. I think we should just go ahead and throw that out there. I’ll speak for Mom and say that hers does not look like this either. We both agree that a laundry room of this caliber should come with some sort of staff to work it.

But we can see why having two washers and two dryers would be very nice. I have double dish drawers and you can be much lazier about unloading things when there are two!


Kerri Rosenthal Art


Oh my goodness, there is nothing like finding a new favorite artist to get you primed and ready for the weekend.
