Color and Surface Texture Matched

Colors have definitely a significant effect on the home furnishings that you choose. Keep in mind that the surface quality of the textiles, trims, woods, etc has also a say to the perceived color. The color of highly textured surface will look like darker and glossy surface is perceived as lighter. Why is this so? The more the light is reflected, the brighter the color; the less light, the darker. Surface texture is a vital element to your success if you are attempting to match a color. Most of the time, you can coordinate since it is hard to match two items of the same color with different textures.
