Use pattern and texture to introduce a new dimension to your space.

1 Role reversal

To brighten up a living room or bedroom, introduce this throw from Milk & Sugar. We love the simple check print, and its reversible design will keep things fresh.

2 Easy does it

If you’re not completely sold on the idea of buying larger textured pieces, choose more discrete items such as this vase from Zara Home. Its neutral colouring will fit comfortably into any space, while the detailing makes it an eye-catching addition.

3 Feet up

Kick back after a long day with this charming footstool from Marina Home. Pair it with a dark-coloured upholstered couch, or a bold, block-coloured rug.

4 Sitting cool

Textured pieces don’t have to be loud in colour or design. Consider this Antonio chair by Eco Chic, with its muted, raised pattern and brown leather upholstery. It will add a quiet touch of elegance to your home office or living room.

5 Mix and match

Try mixing geometric shapes with textured fabrics, as seen in this pretty Alvarez Mineral Blue Wool-Blend rug from Crate & Barrel. Place it at the foot of your bed or under your desk to spruce up a well-worn space.
