Wood is nature’s gift to designers and architects all around the world. It has such an inherent grace in its surface that it seeps into any design it is set up in. Similarly, wood also encompasses that soothing, tranquil aura that most people associate with nature itself. Moreover, it is available in a number of colors, textures and grains that bring a visual diversity in spaces that is otherwise hard to achieve in similarly organic products. So below, we’ll be looking at 5 ways wooden accents can emulate infinite grace and elegance in your interior designs.
1. Wooden countertops
Although wooden kitchen countertops are quite unconventional and uncommon, they do have this inbuilt aura of sophistication that can make any kitchen interior design look absolutely stunning. This image shows a wooden countertop against an all-white backdrop – it looks absolutely stunning and attractive in an understated yet luxurious way.
2. As contrast
Wooden accents that are used in contrast against the usual contemporary surfaces exude an extra charm that seeps into the natural ambience of any interior design setting. Such accents can add character and personality to not only the statement piece, but the overall interior setting as well. This marble topped coffee table with a wooden under-feature is a great example of such an aesthetic done right.
3. On floors and furniture
Wooden floors have an inherently rustic or Scandinavian vibe. It has rigid undertones that instantly soothes frayed nerves when you’re walking around an interior design with delightfully heavy wooden accents. Aside from floors, furniture is also a great way to enhance this relaxing aura in your interior designs. Such wooden design interventions have a way of seeming as if you’re in natures embrace.
4. Feature objects
Even wooden accented feature objects have the ability to emulate a beautiful, classic and timeless elegance in your interior designs. A feature length shelf here, or a wooden wainscoted half-wall there can look just as stunning as an entire floor cover done in wooden textures. This image shows just how lovely a wood-accented feature object can look in an otherwise contemporary interior design.
5. Live edge tables
Live edge tables are the next big hit of the design world. They’re usually made from naturally curated wood that is dried and compressed into natural table forms. It has this beautiful aura that manages to encapsulate the wooden aesthetic in its small form. It also has the inherent ability to look and feel more authentic than any other alternate wood material.
