Home Decor Trends: 5 Tips on Adding Texture

If your home is like mine, it is ever evolving. I switch home decor trends out all the time! But the one thing that is consistent in my design aesthetic is to create texture throughout the rooms. This grounds my transitional decor pieces and is a good footprint to build on in my rooms. You may be wondering how you can do this too—Snag my top 5 tips on adding texture into your home, so you can change your room decor with the seasons and still have a cozy space.

Tip 1: Use accessories in varying materials and weaves.

This is one of the easiest ways to add texture into your home. I am such a fan of neutrals. They really go with everything! Choose items in neutral colors to add texture, but in different materials. I like to do this in items like this pouf from Tuesday Morning. It is in a large knit weave and helps the neutral chair not look washed out. It also is functional too which is always a plus!

Tip 2: Use pillows in different patterns.

When using throw pillows, I like to use my rule of 3s. First, select a floral which can have multiple colors in them like these gorgeous blue ones above from Tuesday Morning. Then, pick a small patterned pillow like the thin grey stripe pillows. Lastly, if you have room for a 3rd pillow, pick a solid pattern to tie them all together. If you follow me on Instagram, you know the pillow aisle is where you will find me at Tuesday Morning. It is my go to aisle for immediate designer pops in a home. Pillows can totally transform a space!

Tip 3: Use throws to add layers

Much like how we were talking about adding texture with patterns in pillows, you can do the same with throw blankets. Use colors in the pillows in the room, or other elements in the room, to tie them together. You can add blankets draped over the arm of a chair or sofa, or laid like this striped one over the ottoman with a tray on top.

Tip 4: Use interesting wall decor.

This is such a great way to add texture affordably. You can swap out items to fit the season, like I did with these sun hats from Tuesday Morning for summer. Another idea would be to use picture frames with different textures of mats. Whatever you decide, get creative and add your personal flare!

Tip 5: Use organic items like plants, candles and accessories grouped together.

Another great way to add texture is by creating vignettes of items and adding in plants. I love to group things in similar colors like white or all blue. It draws your eye to them and makes them stand out. These illuminating candles from Tuesday Morning were perfect for this old metal salvage piece I found. It is also so gorgeous at night! And my little topiary is the perfect pop of color to break up all the white.

I created this little vignette for our coffee and cereal bowls in the morning with this Parisian themed set from Tuesday Morning. Since they are all white, it doesn’t look cluttered and is very functional for our family.

I love having plants in the house, but I do not have the best green thumb. They really are the little pop every home needs to add some warmth and texture to your home. Thankfully Tuesday Morning has a great faux floral/plant section like these succulents. I adore their geometric cement looking planter and look fantastic clustered together.

I hope I have given you some ideas on how to add some texture into your home! I promise you it is easier than you think. For more ideas on utilizing home decor trends, pop over and check out Tuesday Morning’s Pinterest board “Styling Your Home.

A little about me: I am a native Californian but moved to Dallas 3 years ago. I absolutely love living in the South but still miss seeing the beach every day. I love going junking on the weekends with friends and am constantly reinventing the rooms in my home. I love moving pieces around that I already own to create a new look! My days are full with my design clients, running A Blissful Nest and being a soccer mom on the weekends. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

What I love to write about: I love writing about design tips and how to get a designer look with not a whole lot of effort. I love mixing unusual color combinations with unique pattern mixes. Everyone deserves a blissful home with their own personal signature touch!

    Thank you so much. Great ideas. Love the one about the hats on the wall especially. I have been looking for something for over my bed and this is perfect. I wanted something very light(in case it should fall). I already have 2 large brimmed hats and i will go to tuesday mornings to buy a 3rd one. It will look beautiful. Thanks again and please keep giving us good decorating tips. A very loyal and long standing customer, sandy erdman

    The new sales associate and/or manager you have hired at the Hen House Marketplace store is not very friendly. I have shopped there for years and have never been treated like I was treated today. I will not be shopping at this or any other Tuesday morning until that employee is gone from that store.
