Bring the outside in this spring

Feel closer to nature this season in a tranquil natural oasis from Cookes Furniture.

Bringing the outdoors in is 2015’s hottest interior trend that shows no sign of stopping. From rustic cabins to urban retreats, rural coastal vibes to Nordic bliss, turn your home into a place of sanctuary to help you relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life.

Here are three key looks from Cookes Furniture to help you create a perfect natural oasis in your home.

 

Earth hues

Whether you live in the countryside or the urban jungle, introducing natural tones such as browns, greens and dusty charcoals into a room will give it an air of the great outdoors.

The G Plan Vintage Fifty Nine sofa in ‘Tonic Charcoal’ or ‘Fleck Pewter’ is an elegant way of introducing charcoal into your sitting room, and can be lightened with a bright array of scatter cushions or throws.

Although a neutral palette is the best base for a natural themed look, you can experiment with darker shades too depending on the size of your room and the amount of natural light you have to work with.

 

Rustic charm

Sophisticated bare wood furniture will bring natural beauty straight into your home. Lighter woods such as oak and maple can create an open and airy sense in any room, whereas darker tones, such as mahogany and walnut, are all about refined elegance.

Whether it’s a sideboard, hanging cabinet or statement coffee table, the key to this trend is finding functional furniture that allows the natural charm of the wood grain to shine through.

The Chatsworth sideboard, part of our traditional farmhouse inspired collection, will add a touch of warmth to any natural-looking room.

Organic textures

Easily style your room into a natural oasis with some beautifully designed accessories. Woven fabrics, ombre finishes and rustic textures like leather and stone are perfect for creating a relaxing environment.

Pair a smoked glass table lamp and shade with a Halo Montano office chest, or go for elegant solid marble such as the Lucida coffee table.

Finding the perfect balance of warm, natural elements is key. Organic materials and textures give a room that ‘lived in’ feel to shape a welcoming environment. The contrast of wood finishes to non-wood finishes in a room, such as glass, stone and metal, will create a striking, modern look whilst keeping an eco-friendly vibe.
