What is a texturist? Just one of the possible outcomes but read on you may see yourself in this description?
Someone who has a feel for material sourced from nature.
You hold a deep connection and appreciation for the wonderment of natures patterns.
You’re lucky to have a predisposition to see the value and aesthetic qualities of the natural world.
The beauty you are able to see delights you and will appeal to you, irrespective of price points. Basic clay, linens and wood are as highly prized as granite and marble.
You are masterful with layering nature’s forms with a solid foundation in interior designs. You may also find that your love of nature affects most parts of your life in varying degrees.
Artefacts such as shells, stones and fossils fascinate you and you are able to enjoy the artisan created versions, appreciating the textures and attention to detail; it’s what keeps you enthralled.
You’re not opposed to structure. This structure doesn’t always confirm; you love the effect that time has on an object. You will find that you are drawn to tarnished and aged metals too.
Your love of botany is clear to see in your garden and throughout your home. You like the natural softness that greenery brings, especially when dappled with sunlight, or wavering in the breeze.
Earthy natural elements bring you a stillness and offer room for contemplation. You may have an affinity with holistic and organic approaches, believing in the value of restorative leisure activities that lead to emotional wellbeing and balance.
How do people see you?
Your love of natural qualities can easily be seen in you. Honest and calm, you have an air of familiarity that sees you being asked, ‘do I know you from somewhere?’. Instantly people feel comfortable in your company.
You have a strong, rock solid sense of style and your home has an uncompromising quality born from your love of nature’s colours and textures.
Best advice for a Texturist
You may be prone to over-simplify a design, so do be aware of limiting yourself to rustic looks everywhere. Harness nature’s own joy by bringing the vibrancy of a warm Summer’s day; add a pop of yellow or turquoise to cheer and contrast with the earthy tones. If you’re not a fan of bright colour, try enlivening with occasional pops of metallics; copper and brass to bring a warmth and luxury.
