Happy Tuesday to all! I love Tuesdays, the second day of the week and the chance to set your week off on the right foot… just incase Monday wasn’t so fantastic!
I also love Tuesdays because I get to share some Designer Tips with you! Today’s tips are all about texture. What is a space without some texture? For me, texture is an opportunity to add warmth to a room and a chance to add more. More is more!
If you are a reader of the newsletter or have recently signed up, you will know all about my 5 tried and true ways to add texture to your home and feel the need to (x) out of this post… please don’t, I have something for you too!

3. Textiles: This can be a bold, or subtle print fabric as window treatments, or a woven throw to add an extra layer to a sofa or chair.
