Surprising Textured Walls

Creating a statement wall in your home adds a lovely focus to any room. Adding texture to it makes it even more fun and creates another layer. I have sourced some beautiful examples of textured walls from gently worn to cement finishes and everything in between.

Stripped paint

This paint technique takes textured walls to the next level by revealing color layers. It gives a sense of old world charm and adds lots of character to the settings as the perfect backdrop. buzzfeed Pinterest

Havana inspired

Having a wall with layers deliberately stripped away reminds me of the beautiful walls you see in Havana. It’s like the walls have a story to tell and I love that. sfgirlbybay carlaaston

Distressed cement finishes

Cement finishes are still all the rage and these walls have added texture to them that emphasizes the industrial look by giving it a lived-in feel. trend-daily tinekhome

Seamless cement

The added wavy lines above the headboard adds movement to the wall and makes it less stark. This is such a good example of how wall to floor finishes can work very well combined with the right furniture and accessories. tinekhome

Beautiful bamboo

This wallpaper adds visual texture to the wall. It’s got a lovely warm and inviting feeling to it and works perfectly well with the eclectic decor in this bedroom. mydomaine

Wood cladding

This is far from a new concept but how refreshing is the block paneling on the right? It’s a lovely modern take on the normal plank cladding and creates beautiful lines with the elevation of some of the blocks. It almost has a retro feel of the 70’s to it. homedzine caymandriftwood

Another brick in the wall

Exposed bricks are lovely and a sure winner in almost any space. I love the way the awkward shape of the wall is emphasized by the stark white surrounding the brick wall – it’s very quirky! thedesignerpadwalls7

Bling bling

Metallic wallpapers have been popping up all over the decor show and they’re not just for glamorous hotel foyers any longer. On the right is a marbled wallpaper with a very interesting texture and on the left a teal and gold one that has a Moroccan feel with a twist. zsazsabellagio design-milk

tangible texture

I have installed a wall with textured wallpaper from Builders Warehouse in my home, similar to the one on the left and I simply love it. It was painted the same colour grey as the surrounding walls so is just a subtle texture when the light hits it. The texture on the right is made up of printed tin roof plates that are also a firm favorite of mine. I think it would look great in a kitchen. celebratingeverydaylife anthropologie
