Using Texture: Marion's Favourite 2012 Kitchen Design Trend

"Along with bold colours and bright patterns, we are also seeing some very interesting and unusual textures being use in residential design," says Monarch designer Marion Cuddie.

Monarch uses river rock in this residential bath design.

Thought of in both tactile and visual terms, texture can be used to add warmth or interest to a room and often becomes the focal point of your space.

"We've incorporated chiseled stone in back splashes, smooth river rock on shower floors and as wall detail," explains Marion. "We will soon be completing an installation that uses a barn beam from the client's family farm as the cap to a half wall dividing the kitchen from the great room."
