Trend alert: Decorating with wood

Humph. It’s still raining and the forecast doesn’t look good for the bank holiday. So rather than witter on about summer decorating schemes and cute picnic spots, I decided to get real and embrace autumn/winter.

Fortunately, it didn’t take long for me to adapt. The new trend for beautiful hardwoods and rich colours is perfect for long winter nights and cold blustery mornings. Bring on the wood!

A scene-stealing bed celebrates wood’s more dramatic side with barley twist flourishes. A linen throw and luxurious cushions complete the look.

Celebrate the beautiful grains and rich colours of this new trend by playing up your home’s natural features. I love the oak beams and beautiful freestanding bath. I can just picture snow fluttering past the window on Christmas eve… bliss.

Love these? Check out the September issue of Livingetc to see more fabulous ways with wood.

    The bed is a little over the top for me. But the bathroom is divine.
