I got the blog post...

Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. πŸ‘I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. πŸ’…
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy πŸ’° #tilt

I'm stoked to share with you that I'm a new #purplepartner embarking on their 100 night trial.  We are a few days in and I've been dying to share this with you! πŸ’œ

You can see our youngest little is testing out the mattress, just prior to this photo he was assessing it's "jump" factor.  The verdict "Mom! It's SO squishy and soft! Can I keep jumping puuuhhhllleeeaaassseee?!" -
-
-
Tulip was giving the @purple dog bed a test drive, which she literally spent every moment on until she passed a few days later.  We are so grateful her last days were spent in such comfort and support enjoying this bed. ❀
-
-
-
Now our other pups are enjoying while we get a feel for the mattress!
-
-
-
It's been a bit over a week and I must say we are very impressed! I have lots of back issues while the hubs gets numb arms from side sleeping.  So far this has made a difference in our quality of sleep! πŸ˜ͺ
-
-
-
I am really looking forward seeing what kind of longer term usage benefits there might be from this mattress, which is one of the coolest innovations (in my humble opinion) in sleep.  Holla 4" purple smart comfort grid!! And coming from a horrible sleeper that's saying somethin 😁 #lifeonpurple
-
-
-
Hit up my stories where I share the process from delivery to intial impressions!

-
I'll share my honest thoughts and experiences with you during this 100 night trial so you can make an informed decision on what's best for your sleep! πŸ›

Creating Interest In Your Home Using Textures!

creating interest in your home using textures, home decor, interior design, textures in the home, how to bring personality to your home

You’ve probably heard me talk about textures and using them in your spaces to add personality and interest. (textures is a fancy way of saying materials.) So I thought I would break it down and share some easy examples of how I use and implement them in our home to demonstrate why they make such a difference along with tips to help you add it in your home!

home decor, interior design, texture, creating personality in your home using texture, color, family room, living room

I have several textures going on here for lots of interest, the color also adds a lot of interest too (but that’s another post!). To point out a few, I’ve got the leather sofas, the wood table, the stone top on the side table, the sequin pillows, the fabric swing chair, the sheepskin pillow, the faux fur pillows, the knitted cotton blanket, the velvet pillows and the iron base on the side table.

If you were to look at this in an all white or black and white palette the textures would carry through and it would still be something interesting to look at.

**Mixing and matching textures is fairly straightforward and yet so underutilized! An easy way to start would be to get a throw in a different texture than your pillows. Or some pillows different from the the sofa/blanket textures.

home decor, interior design, using texture to create personality in your home, textures, greenery wall, antique doors, faux grass wall

Here I have the faux greenery wall but with the added interest of raw wood, paper (from the chandelier), marble on the table top, velvet on the drapes, rope on the desk and beautiful floral art.

**If you are feeling more brave try adding texture to a wall! You don’t have to go as far as the greenery but even the visual implication of texture in the form of something like paint with faux texture to textured wallpaper to a pallet wall! These can not only give you a bump in the wow factor but also provide a focal point for the room!

**And keep light fixtures in mind! You can go with anything from wood to iron to crystal to paper! This is another quick and easy way to add appeal in the form of mixing materials.

home decor, interior design, fireplace, textures, bench

Here I’ve got a diy embossed leather bench, branches with feathers, velvet, sequins, chippy gold frame, faux flower wreath and grass woven moose.

**Add texture through your wall art! Choose one or two natural textured pieces. You can find some amazing wall art at places like Blue Horizon Prints so take a look there! There are items like juju hats (all feather pieces you can hang on the wall…..I want one desperately), grass woven pieces like the moose you see here, antlers and wooden pieces among countless other ideas! Just keep your eye out for art that is interesting to you that isn’t a traditional canvas piece. Pretty much anything goes. *Try etsy too if you’re having trouble finding anything locally!

home decor, interior design, master bedroom decor, wood ceiling, chandelier, forest canopy bed, anthropologie

Here I have texture in some more subtle ways (and more in your face ways hahaha). The construction of the bed, the mirrored side tables, the wall treatment, the ceiling, the chandelier and the bedding. All give the eye something to check out but still work together for a cohesive feel. This is probably my most neutral space!

**A great tip (whether you use color or not) is to use texture on your bed. Duvet, quilt, shames, throw pillows, sheets…use different materials on any/all of them for an easy way to give the room much more visual appeal. All white can give you this same effect with all the texture!

home decor, interior design, dining room decor, mural, farmhouse table, acrylic chairs, anthropologie

In our dining room the mural does most of the heavy lifting. It gives so much visual interest all on it’s own with the movement and implied texture. Then we have the diy wood dining table, the acrylic chairs, the faux sheepskins and the velvet drapes.

**Use texture on your windows! This is another way to start small. Choose some drapes that have an interesting texture, whether they have a metallic treatment, are velvet or sheer those all have different materials. That will give you texture all on it’s own.

**And don’t overlook your floor! You can get rugs in a multitude of materials from poly to wool to silk to sheepskin. This is yet another layer for your home’s sassy look. (See our bedroom floor above is painted plywood with sheepskin rugs as an example!)

At the end of the day it’s all about adding more appeal and visual interest to your space, and texture is an easy way to do that! It works with color or without. It’s just about mixing different materials to create a layered lived in look that gives the added bonus of giving your space some personality too!

What are your top ways you add texture to a space? Any questions or comments? I always love to hear from you!
