How to Incorporate Texture Into Your Home

Get expert advice from the hosts of I Own Australia's Best Home to help you make the most of different textures. 

“Put together the textures and finishes on a board so you can see how it all works together.” – Gillian Khaw

Make your home a visual playground by incorporating different textural elements.

1. Go wild with wallpaper.

The use of colours and patterns in Sophia and Ben’s Wild Colonial home is mesmerising. If you want to bring similar life to your surroundings, don’t be afraid to have a little fun with your interiors.

Tip: A feature wallpaper wall is a great way to use playful textural elements and designs.

2. Bring the outside in.

David and Robert’s Modern Surfside property is striking in its use of concrete and recycled jarrah. The charm of these materials was brought into the house through the dark jarrah beams in the master bedroom.

Tip: Forego typical gyprock walls and instead use your external building materials to give your home an inside/outside feel.

3. Have fun with upholstery.

Genevieve and Graham’s commitment to the authenticity of their Victorian Manor makes for a grand home. Through their use of furniture and fabrics that remain true to the heart of the home, they have created a space that honours the history of the property. If you want to bring some Victorian elegance to your own space, why not experiment with ornate fabric and patterns?

Tip: Reupholster your chairs and couches to make an eye-catching statement.
