Design: ROOOT Studio

Colour blocking is a popular interior design technique that pairs 2 or more dominant colours together. This design method starts trending on the fashion runways and soon makes its way into the home interiors. Such decor tactic is usually deployed in the living room or the kitchen, by contrasting the colour of the cabinets with either the furniture or wall colour. In addition, the key to a successful colour blocked space is to pair the right complementary colours for an amazing display.

#6. Using texture to create accents

Design:  Weiken

Texture in interior design refers to the different tactile and visual surface qualities of the wall, floor, furnishing and so on to add extra depth and dimension. Therefore, in the quest to bring the interior spaces to life, combining multiple textural elements introduce visual weight and prevent a space from appearing flat and uninteresting. When done properly, the different texture elements subtly pull the space together as a whole. There are 2 main types of textures to work with; physical surface texture (smooth, rough, ridged, grainy or bumpy) that utilises the play of light to create highlights and shadows or simulated textures, such as a faux finish that imitate other materials such as wood, brick or marble.
