Christy Ferer, Vidicom CEO, says a room should feel as good as it looks. Texture energizes a room and softens the often hard lines of modern life. Just as a painter manipulates the size of a brush stroke, its thickness, and the direction of the paint to create texture, so can we use fabric, objects, and wall treatments to generate a rich juxtaposition of textures in a room.
You might realize that texture and pattern are related, but pattern gives a grain even to a smooth surface mimicking roughness and nap. Pattern in area rugs, plates, vases, paintings, decorative boxes, wallpaper, drapery, slipcovers, and pillows give richness and intensity to a room.
