home: trend [ natural finishes ]

A big trend we are seeing this year and in particular this Summer, is natural finishes.

This stripped back look can be seen on tables, chairs, lighting & mirrors. Of course you probably don’t want to deck out your whole room in eveything pale wood, but just a few of these pieces will mix well together.

If you like a neutral colour pallete or earthy tones are your thing, this is where you can have the most fun. In a dining room a natural finished wooden dining table and chairs can look amazing against a dark green wall or black kitchen cabinets.

In a living room a wooden lampshade can be a lovely addition. The light is often softened and it will certainly be a focal point.

If you choose items that are also untreated then you have the option of painting them at a later date. There are so many great colour choices available.

This Mid Century inspired console table from West Elm is the perfect piece to fit in any interior.

The sustainable sourced Acacia wood and bronze detail on the handles give a lux feel. The two drawers and shelf also make it very practical.
