Do you feel like something is missing from one of your rooms but you can’t seem to pinpoint what it is? There are so many ways to update your space by using color, adding accessories, or completely redoing a surface. Sometimes a plant placed on a new floating shelf, new paint on an accent wall, or a textured countertop is just what you’ve been looking for to round off your unfinished room. It always comes down to that finishing touch.
Embrace Different Textures
Whether it’s in a living or dining room, having an eclectic yet complimentary range of textures from different décor pieces can add incredible depth and personality to a room. Whether you choose to hang velvet drapes in the same room as wood blinds or invite worn and rustic bookshelves into your modern bedroom, let your design style be your guide.
Different textures can give a room a familiar, welcoming aura. Pair course with smooth, cashmere with leather, vintage with contemporary.
Spice Up Your Neutral Schemes

Beige and white are some of the most common colors for many different rooms in a home. As tried and true as these color-ways have been—they are often improperly incorporated in a room’s overall scheme. Contrast is key when it comes to spicing up those wonderful white walls.
Contrast can come in many forms, but it’s important to use those colors appropriately. Add eye-opening pops of color from vibrant house plants, bright accentuated rugs, or a centerpiece mirror or art frame. For those that don’t want to deal with the cumbersome duo of paint and primer, these few additions can make up for any standard white wall.
Keep your Kitchen Consistent with Theme
Southern rustic or Midtown contemporary—these are the questions many people don’t know how to answer or even understand. However, for kitchens, one of the busiest spaces in a home, these design styles can determine the overall theme of the house.
Curating the perfect kitchen begins with floors and countertops. Quartz countertops have become increasingly popular in kitchens for their unique finish and versatility in blending with the surrounding environment. Pure White by Caesarstone accentuates a contemporary white kitchen with sharpness and sleekness, while Raw Concrete and Pebble complement brass fixtures and wooden cabinets.
Layer Your Interior Home Finishes and Accessories

Layering is another way a room can exert depth and volume. To avoid hours of unnecessary stress planning, start with the basics. That means rugs, window coverings and lighting. These elements add the foundation of the room.
Window coverings can add texture, while area rugs provide depth and color. Layering is not an overnight process, though. Some of the best looking and feeling rooms come because of the people, places and things we encounter in our lives. What that means—stack and gather. Put that abstract painting over the antique bookshelf, stack those vintage Hemingways next to a post-modern reading lamp. If you don’t think it’s an accessory, you haven’t thought creatively enough.
Interior decorating is no joke of a task—it is a meticulous mix of style, taste and awareness. Finding the right balance of budget-friendly accessories and creating a space reflective of the personality of the people living in it is not easy. From the countertops to the bedroom walls, the colors, finishes and your theme are more than a style statement, they’re a human statement.
