To make a home look more carefree and eclectic I like to enhance and add a powerful dimension to any living space by using texture. One of design principles of texture is that of colour and lighting. Textures need some repetition in a room to create that feeling of a relaxed environment. A mix of textures results in an eclectic look. I believe that decorating with tonal colour variations adds dimension and visual interest. Lighting, one of most overlooked ways to add texture, can create dimension and interest as well as serenity and warmth, especially by layering the lighting in a room. Lighting can also play off textural surfaces by reflecting light or creating visually intriguing shadows, thus making the room seem more carefree.
