Texture is often an overlooked aspect of interior design. Textures can set the mood of a room. Soft, fine fabrics create a feminine mood, while rustic metals and woods are more masculine. Natural elements like dried botanicals, wood and wicker are more casual and comfortable. Sleek and shiny surfaces like polished wood and glass are more formal. Textures need some repetition in a room to create the mood you want. A mix of textures results in an eclectic look.
