Nothing gets our hearts beating quite like the flawless integration of texture, and this stunning design by Elaine Gaito perfectly demonstrates why. From the woven artwork on the cream-colored wall down to the shaggy area rug on the golden wood floor, this living room is overflowing with layered beauty and our eyes just can't get enough. But texture without cohesion can make for an overwhelming look, so we particularly love the way Gaito used a tan palette to tie everything together. The finish of the natural wood floor lays the neutral color foundation, as the woven artwork nearby features an eye-catching patchwork of coordinating hues. Meanwhile, a side table in a dark wood finish adds in some richness, while a faux-fur throw further accentuates the space's cozy feel. But it's that beautiful tan couch that anchors the whole aesthetic, gorgeously unifying this stunning locale's soft textures and warm hues.
