It’s not hard to see why one might be yearning for a more laid-back, relaxing vibe when it comes to our post-2020 homes. In fact, many of the trends creeping into our spaces are related by virtue of their soft and earthy nature.
Natural elements such as timber and stone not only support the creation of warm, comforting spaces, but they also work well with any number of chosen aesthetics.
Whether its darker wood and ceramics for your modern mid-century moods, or light woods and stone for coastal, Nordic or Japandi looks – incorporating natural textures and colours is an instant room-booster.
We’re also using our natural instinct to select colours, with those such as olive and sage greens playing starring roles in 2021 abodes.
Incorporating natural materials into your space can be as simple as refreshing your soft furnishings and decorative knickknacks:
Think linen cushion covers, an artistic wooden bowl coffee table ornament or wall hanging.
Or, it can be part of a larger scale renovation or build: Think wooden flooring and wall paneling, or stone bench tops and tiles.
Whatever you do, just choose what feels natural.
