Designing your home interiors to create a cosy and tranquil space is one of the most crucial aspects of any interior design project. After all, our homes are sanctuaries where we relax, unwind, and recharge for everything that life throws at us. While there are several aspects that can help make your home interior feel cosy, one of the most neglected ones is that of texture. Textured decor can help stimulate your sense of touch in more ways than one, and this tactile element can go a long way in creating a warm and inviting mood in your home.

If you’re looking to design your full home interiors from scratch and want to play around with textures to help create a cosy atmosphere, we’ve got you covered. In this guide, we take you through how you can achieve this sense of tactile tranquillity with textured decor.

Pain Point

When designing home interiors, most homeowners often pay close attention to the paint, theme, and furniture. However, in the process of designing a cosy home, the use of textured decor is often forgotten.


The key to designing warm and cosy home interiors is to add tactile elements in the form of textured decor. From textiles, wood, stone, brick, and even metal, homeowners have plenty of options to choose from. However, knowing which materials to use and how to use them across your space requires the keen eye of an interior designer.

Using Rugs as Focal Points in Your Space

The first thing that comes to mind when incorporating texture into a home’s decor is a rug. Rugs are a brilliant solution to add colour, texture, and warmth to a space, while also creating an eye-catching focal point. What’s more, the flooring sets the tone for any space, and ensuring that it’s well-appointed with an opulent rug can instantly make it feel cosy.   

Whether you opt for a jute rug to add a raw, more eclectic touch, or even a woollen rug for a more luxurious and warm vibe, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from. India’s rich tradition of crafts is home to a wide variety of styles that you can choose from, particularly if you want your home to feature a traditional or opulent theme.   

However, the idea of using rugs in your space doesn’t need to limit you ttextuo using just one. You can also consider layering rugs to add a greater sense of depth to your home’s flooring. You can start with big rugs for your living room, and layer this with a smaller rug in a contrasting shade for more character.   

Play Around with Textiles   

Play Around with Textiles   

Textiles offer you a whole world of opportunities to explore, particularly so if you want to incorporate textured decor into your home’s interior design. Think pillows, throws, curtains, and even blankets and table linen. Every space gives you the opportunity to make use of varying textiles to add a sense of tactile paradise to your space. 

For example, if you’ve got a velvet sofa set, you can accessorise it with a chunky, knitted throw to add a unique blend of textures to your seating. Your cushions also give you the opportunity to play around with texture. Given that velvet is a rich and luxurious material, choosing a textile like silk for your cushions can be the perfect match. 

When choosing curtains, for instance, you can select materials like velvet and even linen, among several others. While velvet works well for more luxuriously-appointed interiors, linen adds a raw, characterful touch to your space, and can be ideal for a space that’s modern, light, and breezy. 

Use Natural Materials for an Earthy Feel   

Nature’s bounties offer us a world of textures that can add a whole new dimension to your home interiors. Textured decor in the form of wood, for example, can be one option to consider. Whether it’s the use of decorative pieces or that of solid wood for statement pieces of furniture, there are several approaches you can take.   

Old, distressed wood, for example, can make give your home a warm, yet earthy sense of style. Similarly, materials like jute can also add an earthy touch to your full home interiors and make it feel cosy.   

Other materials you can make use of include brick and stone. An accent wall with exposed brick or stone, for instance, can be a great way to give your home a warm, luxurious vibe, and can even help achieve a uniquely colonial style.  

Last but certainly not least, you can also play around with materials like leather. You can do so by way of a leather sofa set design, or even on an accent chair in your living room or bedroom.  

Shimmer with Sleek Metals 

Add Some Shimmer with Sleek Metals   

Your experiments with textures don’t have to be limited to stone, textiles, and wood. Metal, too, can be a brilliant way of giving your home interiors a luxurious touch with a bit of shimmer.  

Incorporating metallic elements in the form of brass lamps, metallic decorations, candle holders, picture frames, or even in the form of furniture with sleek, metal frames are some of the many options you can consider.  

However, when using metal across your home’s interiors, the key is to do so sparingly so as to maintain the sense of it being a subtle accent. The highlight of using metal is that it offers a subtle sheen, particularly when reflecting light, giving your home a modern touch via the minimal use of textured decor.   

In Conclusion   

Designing cosy and opulent interiors is about more than just a mix of expensive furniture and art. Sometimes, the devil lies in the details, and this is where textured decor plays a major role. Textures are the perfect way to stimulate your sense of touch and create an atmosphere that’s truly cosy and inviting.
