Mixing materials is easier than it seems. To start, choose a few different materials that you like and use them throughout a room. The key to doing this right is balance. Too much of anything becomes a bit too bland. It’s a good idea to choose a few materials then, add in a variety of materials that work well and play off the primary material.
Wood objects in different tones can work well together. Wood flooring, furniture, and furniture accents add a unifying style to an interior. The related textures are eye-catching. A mixture of similar but unique materials adds a sense of unity to your home. Different metals can make for great eye-catching interior design, too. Try mixing different metal hues for a unique metallic effect.
Fabrics also add a sense of variety to home design. Try contrasting a thick, durable fabric with a light, airy material. The contrast is delightful and pleasant for you and your guests. You can also contrast fabric and textile materials in the same color. The variety of textures will add depth to your home style.
