If you’re quickly growing tired of your dull, monochromatic space, injecting a hint of texture into your humble abode can help to refresh your space in time for the frosty nights ahead. While mixed materials were a major décor trend last season, the look of contrasting fabrics, accents and furnishings is here to stay for Fall/Winter 2015. If you’re wondering how to embrace the decorating trend, here are a few chic ways to incorporate mixed materials into your interior design theme now.
Redecorate your kitchen with gleaming metallic touches and warm wooden tones: Try bringing an eclectic, modern look into your kitchen with a combination of metallic detail, wooden accents and rustic brick. Try incorporating shining stainless steel countertops, gleaming gold-toned faucets and copper finishes into your kitchen décor for a sleek upgrade. For a contrast, use red brick flooring and wooden ceilings for a quaint effect.

Adorn your living room with textured wallpaper and fluffy throw blankets: For a warm, welcoming space, use textured and patterned wallpaper in subtle neutral tones of grey and off-white. If you want to bring wintertime warmth into your living room, complete the look with a plush fur throw blanket and intricate woven accent pillows.

Breathe new life into your space with knit accent pillows and wood panelled floors: If you have a large, open concept room which is in need of an upgrade, take inspiration from the mixed materials trend. Stick to knit pillows in shades of blush pink and grey, and create a decorative contrast with white wooden flooring and subtle printed wallpaper.
Use shaggy rugs to create a contrast against sleek modern furnishings: If you’re wondering how to decorate with the season’s shaggy area rugs, try contrasting a fur accent rug with the look of a slim wooden coffee table, modern white seating and funky white lamps. Not only is this a simplistic way to rock mixed materials, you can also incorporate fur accents without creating a dated or crowded feel in your home.
