So enjoyed looking through these very different open plan rooms. I love using textures for drawing attention to or away from something, catching light and spreading or softening light and just making a room all the more appealing. Nothing adds sensory appeal like textures.

Impressive and beautiful rooms! I can imagine them as constant sources of joy. Each one produces a different aura of good vibrations and peace.

Great concept and nice examples. Texture brings so much. As well as being a really clever way to have space definition it adds character to a space, is often warm to the touch ( timber floor v concrete or tile) and improves acoustics - for example sisal or wool mats, timber floors and furniture, linen curtains all help absorb sound. #architexture !
