STYLING | Textured Walls

12 AUG

At CULTIVER we love introducing texture into the home. We’re naturally drawn to organic materials such as stone, raw timber and (of course) linen, all with their classic, handcrafted feel and aesthetic. By introducing them within a space, be it as a structural element, surface finish or as part of the decor, you can create a layered and tactile feel.

We’ve loved watching texture being increasingly used in interior design, and have compiled a few of our favorite finishes for you.

1. Limewash

Soft and feathery, these limewashed walls are a beautiful backdrop to simple decor pieces.

2. Venetian Plaster

A soft, polished finish that creates a calming organic and natural texture.

3. Tiles

These handmade Moroccan tiles by Tiles of Ezra are a beautiful way to introduce a touch of color and texture to the bathroom.

4. Rag Rolling

This technique replicates the look of marble, and creates a moody and luxurious feel.

5. Cross-hatching

Similar to rag rolling, this textural paint application adds a subtle texture that's calming and adds intrigue to a space.
