Looking to jump on one of 2018’s top interior trends? This year the key word is texture, shaking up homes with a tactile touch.
Be it in the living room, bedroom, or kitchen, the trend has no limits, offering a fast way to transform a home through a visual and sensory experience.
Think velvet, linen, marble, canvas…the trend encourages a mix and match approach with an endless number of variations possible.
Ideal Home suggests furniture with a natural handmade feel. Materials including rattan and wicker are their top picks, with embellishments, raw edges and applique detailing key to enhancing the sensual experience of the items.
At The Huffington Post, the focus is on bed linen. Whilst in years gone by the trend was for a plethora of pillows, cushions and throws, now a laid back, lived-in approach is king. Linen is the perfect fabric to achieve that, creating a summer beach house vibe in any setting.
Velvet shows no sign of disappearing either. The rich material has become one of the most popular for re-upholstering an old chesterfield. Those nervous of a velvet overload can incorporate the material with small touches from cushions, curtains and covers.
