Get the Look: The 'Au Naturel' Interior Trend
As we move towards summer, we often naturally choose lighter, organic materials for our space to banish the winter blues and make our homes a cool and calming habitat during the warmer weather. Spring/Summer 2019 sees natural colours and textures take centre stage for home décor. A combination of earthy tones and a plethora of natural textures create a tranquil space to relax and unwind.
These calming, neutral tones have a soothing effect on your mood, making them an excellent choice for anyone with a busy life wanting to transform their living room into a little haven away from it all. The ‘au naturel’ trend really puts texture at the forefront, with colour taking a back seat. The ideal piece to build this ‘au naturel’ look around is our Harriet sofa, upholstered in sustainable cotton. Made from recycled cotton and plastic bottles, it’s a sustainable and ethical choice, not to mention incredibly stylish. Pair the Harriet with our sleek Eliot mid-century footstool in a highly textured fabric like the Cotswold Herringbone for maximum visual interest and depth. Focus on wooden accessories in organic shapes for a soft and warming atmosphere. Provide a layering effect with various textures like seagrass and mango wood in complementary tones to achieve this natural look.
