Accessorizing with Texture and Color

Nov 17, 2017

Want to know the designer secret to creating a beautiful room? It's the one element that no room should be without: texture.

Combine great textures with pleasing colors and you'll have a room so inviting, you may never leave. We warned you!


Upholstered Bench Hack


Add texture and color by upholstering a bench with a refurbished rug or woven tapestry. You can purchase these benches with a vintage rug already upholstered or, as a DIY hack, take an old rug or tapestry and upholster a bench yourself!

Balance the texture with a set of raw steel or matte black hairpin legs to give it a rustic, bohemian style. The Combo Hairpin legs are perfect for bench projects and come in both matte black and raw steel.


Hairpin Leg Shoes


Hairpin legs themselves add a unique contour to any room. They’re also the perfect accessory to dress up with texture and colors.

Slip on a Hairpin Leg Shoe and you’ve just transformed your table into a cozy, southwestern dream.

Layering Rugs

Layering isn’t just for your fall wardrobe! Layering two or more rugs add a whole new level of dimension to a room.

Jute rugs are great base rugs to layer underneath an eclectic, colorful rug.


Throw Blankets

One of the easiest ways to accessorize with color and texture to a room is with throw blankets. Toss one (or three!) on the couch or at the foot of the bed and let the coziness commence.

If you feel like too many blankets clutter the furniture, you can always have a basket full different textured blankets for company to grab at their leisure and it will still work as a colorful living room accessory.
