“Mix materials and texture to add depth and interest, creating a rich layered effect.”—Nigel Barker on Style
Fight “Boring Room Syndrome” by combining materials and textures for a look that stops the eye and provides visual appeal. For example, a faux fur ottoman softens a leather sofa by adding a warm feel to the cool texture. A glass cocktail table atop a shag throw rug creates a juxtaposition of sleek and plush. Experiment with textures in your room to liven up the arrangement.
