Maybe it's not so fashionable these days, but I still love the look of rough, battered, textured wood.
I think a touch of wood can really 'ground' a room.
I don't have a single room in my house that doesn't have something in warm, earthy wood.
Painted furniture is popular, and I like that too, but I couldn't have everything painted, sometimes you have to let the true beauty of the wood shine through.
I think wood looks particarly good teamed with white.
Wood also looks fabulous teamed with other textures.
I think the colour and texture of wood adds a warmth to a room like no other.
Wood that is old, battered and scratched appeals to me most, for its sense of history.
My favourite 'wood' picture.
I like the raw, scrubbed sort of look as opposed to highly polished and glossly.
Fashions come and go, but in my opinion, nothing makes a room look comforting and warm like wood.
