adding texture is one of the easiest ways to give a room a warmer, more relaxed vibe, and step up the sophistication, too. and doing so through layered textiles is easy, and usually quite affordable, too. there are so many wonderful online and vintage resources for rugs, pillows, throws and bedspreads (see below!), as well as wall tapestries and adding these decorative elements to your home is so, so simple. if your living room, say feels a little cold, lay down a rug (or two!) and you’ve instantly added comfort, color, and warmth to the room. you’ve seen the trend of laying down an unexpected vintage rug in an ordinary kitchen and how it can really transform it, and the same goes for warming up bathroom tile and giving bedrooms a cozy, bohemian vibe.

and for me, the more mismatched the look the better! i love the look of unique prints over patterned tile, a mix of a few layered rugs, or even hanging a rug on a wall, and the idea of it really makes for an instant game changer. sources for textiles are endless, but a few favorites are block shop,  armadillo & co., pampa, the citizenry, the gardener’s house, etsy, anthropologie, lulu & georgia and if you really want to invest in some rare, vintage rugs abc carpet & home and chairish have some beauties. we get them in from time to time at super marché, too, so stay on the lookout (or join our newsletter). happy layering!
