How to Add Texture to a Room

The Layering Essentials Every Home Needs

While we love layers in our wardrobe, we're a huge fan of them in our home too. An easy way to create warmth and add a personal touch, layers will prevent your home from feeling one-dimensional. To master the art, start with the three essentials below; they work well in any room and on any budget!

1. A Throw Blanket

Throw blankets are an accent every room needs — no matter the season! While they are functional, they are also a great way to bring texture and warmth to a space. In your living room, use throws to liven a tired sofa or soften a wooden chair. If you're looking to break up solid bedding, a throw is your best bet — here are some of our favorites!

2. Patterned Pillows

A good pillow not only complements your furniture, it adds pattern and color, too. Browse our guide of the best pillows under $50 to help you find something for your style and budget. While the number of pillows you should decorate with is debatable, choosing pillows in a coordinating color palette will lend a polished look.

3. Statement Rugs

If you're looking to make a statement with layers, do it with rugs. Although one rug will suffice, doubling up is a unique way to set a room's foundation. Try using rugs made from different materials, such as a thin cowhide placed over a thick, woven rug. Overlapping two smaller rugs is also a good way to avoid having to splurge on a large area rug.
