Combining Textures to Create Depth

June 3, 2024

I can often be found in the dance studio (or my kitchen) working on my bachata form or creating with my kids and husband, who inspire me daily and are the "why" behind what I do. An avid baker, I am often making a new bread recipe, baking homemade cinnamon rolls, or desperately trying to drink the rest of my coffee while it's hot. My mission? To help others create and cultivate a home that they love!

hi there!


These texture combinations are classic and timeless – use them now and cherish them for years. 

Combining textures to create depth allows you to focus on creating impact in your home while showcasing your most treasured pieces. By selecting pieces thoughtfully for your home that you can use year-round, you’re always stylish.

Mixing Elements | Textures to Create Depth

We’re all about warm nudes and earthy shades, including greenery and plants. While not a favorite for some, these shades can be found as accents in many homes, creating depth and interest. 


Texture | Combine Elements

Along with warm shades, the texture is at play with fuzzy throws, brocade pillows, and soft velvets. My favorite way to mix up textures is with linen material and velvet. It creates a particular “je ne sais quoi” moment and invokes an inviting feel.


Warm Neutral Tones | Earthy Elements in Lighting

It’s getting darker earlier in the evening, so add additional lighting. It’s important to consider how you use the room, so think about task lighting and overall lighting to keep the mood consistent. Combining these textures ensures you create depth in a variety of lighting conditions.


Adding Depth | Scent

Proudly displaying your favorite treasured items changes your interior environment and creates a sense of place. This creates a welcoming and enveloping room for you and your guests. Use these items to inspire and encourage you – they set the vibe for the room, and are great conversation starters! An often overlooked element, scent. There’s something for everyone.


Décor | Combining Textures to Create Depth

When selecting room décor, think about the overall purpose. A tray, for example, can be staged in several different ways and easily transferred to make room for entertaining. I love to use a clear tray and add a few decorative items inside to create a sense of atmosphere in an area. A clear tray over light wood tables invokes a clean and natural approach, while a white tray gives a more contemporary feel. I love a good bit of basket décor and handmade items, so go check out my friends and shop small at Life Inspirit.

These are a few of my favorite finds that have been a great asset in keeping my new routine organized and our home running smoothly. It’s almost that time of year where entertaining is key! Checkout this post for Fall decor!
