    It depends on the purpose of the website.

    “Texture” can end up being the enemy of functionality.

    A railway website needs to be functional. Most people just want to find out how to get from A to B and when to turn up.

    Cuddlyness gets in the way sometimes!

    example: Swiss Rail – http://www.rail.ch

    Refreshingly simple and efficient….

    A good collection. I would say that just use the one that you need, I think the author not really want you to use everything here, we all know that we have our own style, we use different tools to design those tools we are comfortable using. This is just a variety of tools that maybe one of these are your must-have-tools.

    using texture in design is a growing trend that I love, love, love. The trick is to incorporate it into the design while retaining a clean look. Those are excellent examples how that’s possible.

    Bridge 55’s website looks the part, the textures they use for the background and attention to detail really suit their urban theme, some good examples there.
