Create A Visually Pleasing Space With Textures And Patterns

“I regard texture similar to the function of taste buds in our mouths. But in a visual form. Texture does create a specific flavour which affects our senses.” Adamo Macri

The two oft-neglected but crucial elements of interior design are texture and patterns. They work independently and are some of the trickiest design components to work with. However, the results are truly rewarding!

Imagine seeing a carpet from afar. Its colour and design will entice you, but when you let your bare feet touch the fabric and feel the softness of the fur and the patterns seamlessly blending in with other pieces of furniture and fabric in the room, it’s a treat for the senses just as much as for the eyes.

Are you confused between patterns and textures?

Patterns are design details on repeat, like plaid, polka dots, or strips, etc. whereas texture is a surface object you can feel with a sense of touch. While pattern registers as visual recognition, the texture is both visual and tactile (sense of touch).

How do patterns and textures change the dynamics of a room?

Patterns can directly impact the apparent size of any room, making it look smaller or bigger by adding depth and creating visual illusions. Texture, on the other hand, gives dimension and feel to a room and can make it warmer and more inviting.

Here are some amazing ways in how patterns affect the aesthetics of your house

  • If you are in love with a certain colour palate but it is too intense, patterns can help sober it by breaking down its impact into a more visually pleasing appearance.
  • Lightly backed and small-sized patterns can make small rooms look spacious, while stronger and more intensely coloured, medium to large-sized patterns beautifully complement a medium or large-sized room while giving it a ravishing look.
  • Gaudy and loud patterns have a vintage impact, while sleek geometrical patterns are perfect for a contemporary layout.

…and let’s not forget textures!

  • Textures are mainly of two types, rough and smooth. Rough textures can be used for a warmer impact while smooth textures impart a cooler feel to the house.
  • A course texture adds visual weight to an object, while a smooth texture makes it lighter.
  • As rough texture reflects less light, it is best for a rustic/vintage layout with a homely feel.
  • Smooth textures add brightness and liveliness to a space as it reflects more light. It works best with contemporary and modern home décor.

Remember this great insight by Giorgio Armani,

“To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.”
