Anyway, related to the benefits of textured fabric to your home decoration, you should be able to apply it in the most proper way so that you can get its maximum performance. Here are the steps that you can follow to apply the textured fabric to your home decoration.

1. Decide the Color scheme to Create Mood

Colors have an important role in creating the mood of a decoration. So, when you are going to start decorating your house including adding textured fabric there, then deciding on the color scheme will always be the first step that you should do. The impressions that the colors can bring will be cozy impressions, warm impressions, inviting, intimate, cheerful, peaceful, and many other color characteristics. Then, what is the relation with the texture? Each color will have its own need in texture. If you want a balanced one, you should be able to choose the right texture for your colored fabric. For example, a standing color won’t need too obtrusive texture, otherwise, the calm pale color will need a more obtrusive pattern.

This one is an example of how the color can bring the mood. Look at this beige color scheme that is applied to some items in the decoration which are the chairs, curtains, and cushions. All that you see is a calming, warm, and inviting room. Beige Color Scheme from @tonya_sparkman_sewn

2. Do the Material Layering

The different fabric materials will be able to create a more unique and textured look to the decoration. So, we recommend you do the material layering. It means that you should make different fabric materials with different kinds of textures to work together in one room or spot. For example, you can use the wool material to be layered with velvet, corduroy, microfiber, etc. With the variations of the materials, you will also get a varied sense of touch which is great.

The wool, furry, and corduroy are brought together in one room to create a dimension from the texture. This decoration is simple but enlivened with the existence of the texture. You can also see that the texture variation is not too much at all because it is balancing each other. Material Layering from @sarahvanrenen


3. Combining the Same Color but in Different Tones

Well, having some different textured fabric in the same room is overserving sometimes. If you are the kind of simple person who loves minimalism, then you can apply different textured fabrics in the same color. Not to make it look boring, you can apply the different tones of a color. This will help you to deal with the overwhelming decoration.

The pink color is the choice for the textured fabric being applied there. You can see that there are pink colors, dark pink, and light pink. The textures are different and the finish fabric type is also not the same. So, even when the color is the same, It still has varied dimensions not to make it boring.
