Wood is an extremely beloved texture that is now available in many other material forms other than its natural one. However, the chocolaty texture of Brazilian rosewood is something that can bring in a tropical vibe even in the vastly urban landscape of Singapore interior design market. So further, we’ll take a look at 5 clever ways you can use chocolaty wooden accents in your spaces.
1. Inbound accenting
Sometimes, dark wood accents can give off the best aura when they’ve been used in small but enclosed spaces with a foreground of largely white color scheme. Take the example of this interior design – it makes use of its wooden accents by enclosing them within the in-bound interiors of the shelving. The outside contrasts beautifully with the darker colors with its white austerity.
2. As a backdrop
This image features an interior design that showcases an attractive tropical-themed living room. The dark wooden accents have been used as an extensive backdrop for the media wall. It brings out the starkness of the white material used in the foreground and sets up the stage for all the accessories and furnishings that go with the design.
3. Going full-scale
Using dark textures of wood within small spaces is an art form. You cannot simply take a smooth wooden surface, clad it on a feature wall and call it a day. You have to use the proper design elements to balance out the dark tints of the actual material. If you look at this image, you’ll notice how the accent wall features a louvered design that is complemented by the dim gold light and white contrast.
4. Through furnishings
Although you cannot go for full-on wooden furniture until you’re going for a vintage look, you can use small accents of this texture in the arms and legs of your furnishings. A small bit of wooden veneer on the dining table leg or a stylish accent through the legs of the chair can go a long way in creating a trendy look in your interior designs.
5. That one form
Sometimes, all you need is one bold splash of dark rose-wood in order to truly set your interior design apart. This bathroom is the perfect example of how you can do that in an easy and clever way. You simply have to take one major element of your design and clad it in the right wooden finish. The vanity in this bathroom provides that perfect contrast against the otherwise white surfaces.
