PLAY WITH TEX­TURE…

The Mail on Sunday - You - - Snug As A Hug -

DO

● Build up mul­ti­ple lay­ers. For an easy way to work the trend, pile on the cush­ions and throws, us­ing dif­fer­ent tex­tures and tonal shades.

● In­tro­duce touchy-feely fur­ni­ture such as the sheep­skin Fox chair from Habi­tat or the lat­est Bethan Gray col­lec­tion at An­thro­polo­gie.

● Look for nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als such as jute rugs, sheep­skin and hes­sian wall­pa­per.

DON’T

● Go over­board with pat­tern – this look is about tonal tex­ture, not clash­ing prints.

● Limit your­self to soft fur­nish­ings. Ceram­ics and wood are also clever ways to add tex­ture.

● For­get about your walls. Tex­tured paint – such as the Craig & Rose Ar­ti­san Stone Ef­fect range at home­base.co.uk – adds depth to a room. For a quick up­date, opt for a wo­ven wall hang­ing; or, for a bold state­ment, hang a floor rug.
