?Adding Texture to your Home

I think most of us can say that we love getting home from having a hectic day…..but do you love your surroundings once you get home?….do you wish your house was more homey or comfortable….just your style?  I’m hoping I can inspire you by my pictures and texture ideas to make your home more cozy and welcoming.  So here are a few ideas to add texture to your surroundings.

?Include wood in your decor and it will warm up the space. This vintage French chair with rush seat was the key to add some texture to a corner of my home.


?Adding greenery to your space will add the natural texture of the outdoors.


?A blanket spread over your favorite chair will welcome you and make you feel at home….this is my favorite texture.


?The addition of some metal like this clock and this rustic bird will invite you in. Mixing textures is key.


?Lastly, by adding baskets to your decor, you will bring texture & organization into your space.


All of these ideas are here to help you to love the home you have, wether your house is a mansion, a farm house, an apartment or a studio. Just remember that with a little love and inspiration, you can accomplish much and make the house you have, the best home you’ve own. I’m hoping this will inspire you in bringing texture to your home.

?I am participating in The Inspired Room tour, celebrating the launch of this new book by Melissa Michaels.  She has helped me love my house and create the best home for our family….go take a look at her book and learn how to fall in love with the home you already have.  Go get your copy at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

    Hi Alicia! Such beautiful photos of your home with some great ideas! If I may ask, where did you find the slip cover for your windsor back chair? I acquired a windsor back chair that is in great condition and I’m not sure if I want to get it reupholstered or find a slip cover for it. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Hi Maria and thank you so much. I made the slipcover with dropcloths from HomeDepot. I watched Miss Mustard Seed create one and I just followed her lead. And thank you again.
