Bringing the Warmth Inside with Woods
We have long left the summer blooms; the fall foliage has fallen.
Snow sprinkles the ground in parts of the country, with many of us getting cabin fever and looking to make a change. As the warmth evades us outdoors, its time to contemplate creating warmth in our homes. We have looked into some of the perfect lessons in layering warm tones, how you can’t go overboard with wood, how to balance color with neutral, and a brief lesson in using tones in your design.
A general rule of thumb is that the more open concept your living space is, the more important it is to treat the space as one. It can be challenging to consider EVERY detail of abut when done well, the final feel of your space cannot be matched!
Layering wood on wood, with an accent colour that speaks to you and balanced with a creamy white neutral will create a cozy ambiance. Using marble in your kitchen helps break up a wood on wood look and create unique elements for the different living areas of your space. Using elements like area rugs and differing textures also help break up living spaces in a way that is complimentary, not overwhelming.
The view from one room into the next should be cohesive and in sync with the rest of the home, but distinctive in its own right. Add pops of colour to break things up a bit, adding a variety of metals. Check out a past blog What Was Old is New Again in Décor Trends for more tips on mixing colours, patterns and metals!
