I have this design flaw, well I wouldn't necessarily call it a flaw. It's more like I go through these design phases and right now the phase I'm going through is Textures and Ribbons.
Right now I can't help but throw some ribbons and textures on all my current design.
On this restaurant site I'm design called Chef Orlando's (not finished yet) , you can see I used allot of both in the design and when it comes to restaurant designs, textures and ribbons actually work very well.
The main design factor of the design is driven by a noise texture.
If your not Photoshop savvy and your just looking for a quite way to get a noise texture, I highly recommend Noise Texture Generator.
It's a very straight forward and simple web application that makes generating noisy textures a breeze.
