    Trend alert: add a natural touch with wood grain

    by  • Tuesday, November 17, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    With all the dark colours of winter’s palette, it’s refreshing to find a trend that brings a little life and nature back into our schemes. Wood grain is not only beautiful to look at, but really easy to work in – keep it modern by choosing either a permanent statement, such as a herringbone floor or bold wallpaper, or go for a subtler approach with occasional accessories.
    Topps-TilesSuitable for pretty much any room in the house, these wood-effect tiles from Topps Tiles are actually made from porcelain. Available in either a gloss or polished finish, mix and match different colours for a modern vibe, or stick to just one shade for a more traditional feel. Great for a luxury look that’s hard-wearing and easy to clean!

    Ella-DoranThis vibrant wallpaper from Ella Doran (above) is not for the faint-hearted, but brilliantly good fun if you’re feeling bold. The large-scale exposed grain is digitally printed for striking detail, and the paper has a textured finish for an authentic look. Available in pink or blue.

    West-ElmThese subtly patterned towels from West Elm (above) are a really natural way to add the trend to your scheme. Choose from white or grey, then team with a simple palette and touches of real wood for an organic feel.
