home: trend [ urban wild ]
Seek time away from the busy hectic technical world we daily live in, by creating a natural sanctuary in your own home with the Urban Wild trend.
This trend heals and soothes. Interiors that embrace this trend are as close to getting outdoors and enjoying the wild as you can get living in the big city.
Combine natural colours and textures. In furniture, floors and walls use woods, aged stone, polished stone, wicker and metal to give a natural but industrial edge. For soft furnishings seek out leather, knit, cashmere, linen and even velvet. Combine soft and hard materials like goat hide for seating with metal structures for the bases, and layer up furs and fluffiness in rugs against polished grey slate flooring.
For walls choose soft natural chalky tones to keep the look soft and blended. Craig & Rose give a great insight to using chalky paints and Annie Sloan has a great range of colours.
