A 100-year old log building inspires this interior designer
I've just returned from a trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Teton Mountains where I took this picture of a 100-year old log building. Once it was a cabin, or possibly a barn. Today it is an essay on texture authored by the elements.
We experience texture with our eyes and through our skin. That's what makes it such a potent element of interior design. We see it, anticipate it, and finally feel it.
While color whistles, "Hey, look at me, texture whispers.
Texture can be real, like our log cabin, or perceived, as in a clever trompe l'oeil. Maybe that's why it's so intriguing. We wonder, "Will it feel the way it looks?"
