The use of texture in interior design is a very important design element. Texture is both physical (actual) and visual (implied). Texture can be seen on the fabrics for your furniture and your window treatments, your decorative pillows and rugs, even your walls, ceilings, and floors. Texture adds dimension, depth and character to a space. When you add texture to various surfaces and fixtures you can actually influence the way people feel when visiting your home. For example did you know that smooth textures are more formal while rough textures are more casual.
Here are two beautiful bedrooms that have a ton of texture; just look at that beautiful stone walls and wood ceilings in these two bedrooms.

Rough textures are harder to clean but show less dirt as in this very comfortable living room.
A great way to add texture to a space is through faux finishing like this beautiful distressed plaster wall.
