This year a range of new and unique lighting design trends are popping up all around the industry adding that special touch to your home’s beautiful interior in both the lighting and interior décor and accessories categories.
One of our favorites right now is the mixing of various textures within your space, like glossy and matte; the combination of soft and hard creates a wonderful accord and an infusion of diverse palettes.
Adding Texture is yet another component of interior design that becomes a key element, making a space interesting and inviting. You can add textural depth to your interior by combining items of different materials within your design scheme.
Consider bringing a reflective mix of high gloss elements and compliment that with matte or glossy accessories.
Take this fresh and very modern Minka Aire ceiling fan from the Artemis collection for example; it has an incredibly polished surface with a distinct profile that is finished in a high gloss coating. Complement that texture with tweed furniture, rugs or throws as well as more matte or toned hues like this Cyan Design round matte clay slate stool to add some depth.
Along with those consistencies within your space, feel free to add your own touches of gloss and matte with a vase like these high gloss olive green Cyan vases or Uttermost gloss black table lamp.
Mixing various textures within your space adds more composition and height to your space. Get creative and you choose which arrangements and structures speak to you and you can find your own style and texture to your home.
