Remember on my monochromatic post I told you there would be more to come on texture?  Texture has not only, well …..texture – dimension, form, tactile sensations  – but a temperature.  Temperature you say?  How can texture have temperature?  Well depending on what it is, it will intoduce a warm or cool touch to a room.  Rich wood, fuzzy fabrics, stone will bring a warm touch to a room.  Stainless, glass, marble, lacquer bring a cool touch to a room.

In our previous post texture brought interest to our monochromatic rooms and now its adding another dimension, temperature – and mixing temperatures  – well that makes a room sing.

I couldn’t help it I’m a cat lover.  Pavers – cool temperature.  Kitty – looks sleek and cool in the picture but in real life warm and fuzzy!
Here’s my kitty, Hattie.  She’s soft, silky and fuzzy all in one but for all who know her, not much of a lover.
