Touch of Timber

Natural Materials is the trend that has really stuck this year, so here’s our round up of a look that’s far from wooden. We’ve been finding out just how versatile timber can be, creating spaces that range from gently organic to full-on rustic.

As we welcome in Autumn/Winter 2013, create your own alpine retreat with Andrew Martin’s Lumberjack wallpaper.

Depending on whether your room could benefit from the illusion of extra width or height, mix it up with vertical or horizontal stripes. Both Cole & Son and industrial trend-setter Andrew Martin have smart wooden panelling in organic colours, creating an ideal backdrop to key pieces of Scandinavian beech wood furniture.

An undeniably part of what we love about being British is getting outdoors and enjoying the woodland. Cole & Son’s ever popular Woods design is perfect at bringing the outside in. Using a neutral coloured wall will allow you to embrace the theme with on trend styling as seen above.

Add a touch of country air to your personal hideaway by using textural materials around the windows such as this a rough weave curtain fabric from Designers Guild. Mixing materials has been a key theme at Interiors Shows this year, so balancing wood inspired prints with rough woven fabric and stone inspired Louise Body wallpaper creates a great combination.

The natural products found outside are now easy to make a part of our home, so have fun exploring to create your idyllic relaxed, casual retreat.
