Wood and white was the winning theme of last year, but 2018 is seeing an influx of wood and grays as well. This is another beautiful color-material combo that looks absolutely chic and sophisticated when done right. So further, we’ll be taking a look at 5 elegant ways you can combine wooden textures and grey color to get the best HDB interior designs.
1. By alternating surfaces
The wooden texture and grey color are both very dark hues, so although they have excellent contrast, it is important to use each one in moderation. Therefore, alternating surfaces is a great way to balance out this particular kind of aesthetic with ease. You only have to ensure that no single material is being used in large amounts to make this theme successful.
2. Balancing with tones
If you think that one single shade of grey is not enough, then it’s time to break out the different tones. You can use slate grey with frost and Silverstone tones with a bit of contrasting accessorizing in the mix. Wooden accents can be used for framing the whole design. The overall impact of such a creation is positively gorgeous.
3. Grey middle-ground
A good way to use the wood and gray color scheme is by creating a gradient setting. For example, two surfaces of the room can be done in wood, and two can be done in gray tones. This image shows a great example of such an execution. The wooden floor and bookshelf are complemented by the grey wall mount sofa and the fabric-clad wall.
4. In pairs of two
The wood and gray theme can be executed through two-dimensional execution as well. For example, if you’re doing your floors in wood, then the upper half of a room can be done in shades of grey. You can even embellish further with accent lighting and beautiful decoration pieces throughout the room.
5. Contrasting with furniture
If you decide to do your walls in shades of grey, then you can contrast it with wooden textured furniture. This is another great way to properly contrast your surroundings. The impact of this kind of an articulation can be really beautiful and elegant.
