How to add textures to your home

How to add textures and warmth to your home

I’ve always loved the minimalist, relaxing look that exudes from our resin floor in our London home.
However, since I’ve painted this wall with Kalklitir paint before Summer, I have been drawn to more intimate, muted colours, wooden furniture and handmade objects and of course, stonewashed linen in the bedrooms.

I suspect this unpainted plaster wall is not going to get painted anytime soon and that’s ok…

I love it just the way it is, with its small imperfections and soothing atmosphere.

It’s also the start of Autumn and personally, I feel more inclined to stay at home where it’s warm and cosy rather than hitting the town on high heels in the cold, don’t you!?How to add textures and warmth to your homeThere are different ways of adding textures and warmth to your home but one that doesn’t fail is adding a rug, even a small one like this wool berber rug I got from Next a while ago but never got around to photograph.

You can see here how the lounge looked before the addition of this small rug (especially here!) …
I should have ordered a larger size but I was in a hurry and this berber rug wasn’t available at the time in bigger versions (it is now!)

Not to worry, I have since then sourced a much larger moroccan rug and this one will go up in our bedroom where it will look divine on white floorboards.How to add textures and warmth to your homeI’m also changing a lot of things in the house, things that have cherished and loved for a long time and I feel it’s now time to move on and let go.

The pallet table is one of these items. Sure, it’s not difficult to make your own but the large wheels are quite expensive and you will need to apply several coats of paint to your pallet so if you want to spare yourself a weekend doing DIY so you can enjoy your family and friends, you can grab mine here.

I’ve listed a lot of things on my bodieandfoupreloved instagram account and will add more over the weekend (I have a lot of prints, a gorgeous Liberty case bought in Merci for Mila and lots of styling props so watch this space!) How to add textures and warmth to your home How to add textures and warmth to your home How to add textures and warmth to your home How to add textures and warmth to your home How to add textures and warmth to your home How to add textures and warmth to your home How to add textures and warmth to your home

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! So beautiful! I’ve always been concerned about incorporating white into my home. It’s a really tricky colour isn’t it? keeping it clean and then there’s the risk of it going grey!
