I am a huge fan of texture. It is not just the fact that it looks cool, but it often shows something's experience. Take the photo below. I just aquired these old, beat up pieces of silverware. They bring a sense of place and history. The aging white washed wood brings a comefortable southern feel. I think it is important to appreciate the well worn parts of life.
