There are so many ways you can make your space inviting . My recommendation today is to consider wood because it can add both warmth and architectural interest to any space. Choose a little or a lot, there's something for every space. If you don't like the warm tones of wood but love the grain and texture, think about white washing or gray washing it. How about using wood in......
A few twigs or pinecones as part of a table display or sliced wood attached to board or a recessed box shape can add instant interest to small areas.
I am not overly fond of room dividers, but some are so well done they look like an art installation rather than a functional aspect of a home. Here are some of my favourite ones.....
All of these bathrooms have a mix of wood and other surfaces. Each provides relief for the other and in this way work together to create a stronger aesthetic statement.
Sliding doors and drawer and open shelving. This space has it all.
Rough hewn logs in an asymmetrical placement work really well . Chunky and demanding they make quite a statement.
I guess you are getting the message that I love asymmetry. This delicate shelf that extends beyond the fireplace on one side is the perfect resting place for two white vases that reference the colour of the fireplace surround.
And don't forget the power of wood for an accent wall. Either natural or stained, you can't beat the warmth of real wood. I especially love it paired with white walls and furniture.
