Texture is what gives a kids room that cozy factor and entices you to step deeper into the space. It’s the things that you can ‘feel’ and the things that add dimension and in my opinion, all baby and children’s spaces need a little (or a lot of) texture. Texture is what truly brings the space to life!

There are lots of furniture items that can add texture to a room (hello grasscloth covered dresser!), but today I want to make it easy and share 5 ways you can add texture no matter what your furniture is. Sound good?
ONE. ADD A RUG
This is a simple way to add texture and nearly any rug will give an instant cozy lift to a space. Look for natural fibres; my favourites are wool or cotton. The boho shag rug below adds SO much texture with just one item!
TWO. LAYER A BLANKET
Adding a blanket to any part of a kids room instantly makes the room say, “hey…come on in and snuggle up”. Just think about a blanket draped over a crib, or a chair, or even draped out of a basket.
THREE. ADD LIGHTING!
You wouldn’t really think of it, but I believe adding a pendant light (especially this feather light), a wall light (even a nightlight!) and a task light (on dresser or desk) adds an extra layer to the whole place.
FOUR. PUT UP WALLPAPER OR WALL DECALS
While my true love affair will always be wallpaper (just order a sample to FEEL the texture and see the sheen), decals are a fabulous lower cost alternative that still give big impact, dimension and texture!
FIVE. INCLUDE SOFTIES!
Every baby and little one deserves a special stuffed toy and soft patterned pillows will provide a similar textural effect. There are so many adorable options on the market, it’s truly the EASIEST way to add a little texture.
