Combine different textures in your home with throws and blankets 

For a more relaxed summer evening, there is nothing like relaxing in the garden with a cotton throw over your legs to keep warm. But where do you store it when you are not using it? In the lounge, of course! Layer wool blankets with fine cotton throw and see the textures pop. Pick colours that match your theme or why not make a big colour clash! Throws and blankets are an easy way to work with textures in any room. 

Cushions help to combine different textures in your home 

Layer up the cushions on your sofa and bed, with various sizes, colours and textures. Choose velvet and linen or cotton and wool. The layering effect using pillows makes a comfortable and cosy looking space where you can relax and put your feet up at the end of a long day. 

Combine different textures in your home with wallpaper and light shades 

Wallpaper can be bought in many colours but also textures which can give a whole room a textured look. Couple this with light shades or an uplighter on the wall, and you will immediately create a textured look. 

Use rugs, carpets and mats to combine different textures in your home
