Interior Design – For a More Touchable Territory

Applewood Interiors, Suppliers of Made to Measure Soft Furnishings


In the past, household items were only ever there to serve their initial purpose – and understandably so. Functionality and efficiency were the most important things – what did it matter if that stool was a bit hard? As long as it did what it was supposed to, nothing else was particularly important. However, times are changing, and new interior design trends are springing into view, urging us to transform our homes into snug, welcoming wonderlands.

For 2013, one of the top ten interior design trends is a large focus on texture. Now that those bits and pieces in our homes are all functioning adequately, it’s time to give in to our human nature and find ways to make them even better. In the field of design, it now turns out that we want to really feel everything around us; to be able to make every item soft and touchable. This concentration on texture is now gripping proud home owners, and interior design specialists have pounced upon it, eager to serve.

More touchable surfaces around the home encourages comfort and warmth and portray that real welcoming, family atmosphere. Those super soft sofas and cosy cushions sure make the home look incredibly inviting! For the house proud characters out there, giving your home that cushy quality could be the perfect way to re-vamp, if you’re looking to change things around a bit. Soft furnishings are guaranteed to create a wonderful, homely ambience.

The next step of course, is to choose that ideal colour scheme for your home. Colours are an essential part of any living space, and the colours you choose depend entirely on the environment you wish to create. A new palette has the magnificent ability to transform any room in the home. For a cosmopolitan feel, one would select dark browns or black, mingled with creams, light greys and one or two bolder colour statements. If you’re dreaming of a cottage by the sea, refreshing coastal colours such as teal, pale blue, white and lemon are sure to lighten any space.
