Notes on texture

While I was working on the bedroom, I noticed that the textures in the room were happening at different scales:

Small-scale textures:  the carpeting, the textured paint on the walls and ceiling, the grain of the woodwork.

Medium-scale textures:  the crocheted string star and comet, the rough pottery jar on the bookshelf.

Larger-scale texture:  the crocheted twine rug.

That is a lot of texture for one room, which is one reason I made the cardboard circles to put on the wall. The only smooth pieces were the windows, headboard, and the large mirror leaning against the wall. The chunkiness of the rug makes a nice contrast against these.
