Styling Notes | Designing with Color and Texture

Color and texture are staples of interior design, and are essential for creating a collected home of curated luxury. Every piece in our assortment is designed with materiality in mind—creating an effortless way to layer these design principles throughout your home.

Whether you are designing a stand-out furniture piece or layering mixed materials throughout your home, discover our designer tips to inspire a beautiful space of tone and texture.

On a Statement Piece

Color and Texture: On a Statement Piece

Introducing contrast and drama with one furniture piece is a designer favorite for creating instant impact. We recommend either pairing contrasting color tones on a single piece, or using varying textures in a similar color palette for a more subtle, tactile experience.

CONTRASTING HUES: When selecting multiple colors within a piece, it is important to coordinate the undertones of the hues. Selecting a unifying undertone like a rich olive or warm golden brown can allow you to select materials and finishes across multiple depth values, while still creating a space that feels unified.

Across a Room

Color and Texture: Across a Room

When setting a foundation of curated texture within a room, start with a pairing of your most prominent pieces—like a sofa and accent chair. Design the pairing with varying textures in a tonal palette, allowing you to add further layers of interest through accents across the room. Our designers often work with tried-and-true texture pairings to create a curated feel to any room. A few of their favorites:

LINEN + LEATHER: Combining linen and leather in a space is like the jeans and t-shirt of texture combinations, a true staple.

Color and Texture: Across the Home

Layering warm, neutral tones throughout your home in a variety of textures will create a luxe and classic look in any space. Select a tonal palette and then layer in contrasting material types and subtle pops of color for a consistent look. Working within a tonal range provides you with an endless amount of options when it comes to playing with shape, form, and texture.
