So often people think of art in their homes as framed and smooth oil, watercolor, or even acrylic paintings on their walls. The capability of art is nearly infinite. Without further ado... 5 tips on adding more texture to your space with art!
Stephen Threlkheld's mathematically-inspired weavings are an easy and beautiful way to add texture to any room. The fiber and colors also add a warmth and comfort. These are easily hung by the use of velcro, but there are many ways to creatively display them in any space. Visit his OTG artist page HERE.
So we, of course, don't sell any kind of plants here. Though we have been known to give away some produce from the Walter's gardens! What we do have is a selection of gorgeous vases handmade by Mississippi artists. Andrew McIntyre and Sarah Teasley both have distinct styles that go well with any eclectic or conservative room.
3. Weird + Wonderful
We've talked about Ed Williford's sculptures before here on home and heART. We admit that it's not for every room or everybody. But if you have a little bit of imagination and just the right place to put one of his creations, it can make a room. Often he employs metal wires and fabrics to shape his sculptures, which range from geometric and engaging deliberate messes of wire to something that eerily reminds you of an internal organ that has grown cilia.
4. Rise Above Two Dimensions
You don't have to go full 3D to add a little texture to a room. Nonney Oddlokken's collages incorporate handmade paper and gorgeous golden thread embroidery. So you not only get many different textures, but a little sparkle, as well.
As we've mentioned many times before, we love art and artisanal objects that we can incorporate into daily use. We love John Haltom's use of local trees to build heirloom furniture. Haltom often leaves the natural shape of the edges of the slabs of wood to show off the beauty of the trees and wood.
