Ash wood is one of those unique forms of wood that have tinges of grey-ish black in the mix. The lighter form of ash-wood is known as white ash, and it’s a texture that’s incredibly unique and distinctive. On the other hand, the black ash texture is bold, dark and charismatic. They can be found in both laminates, tiles as well as in actual wooden form. Further, let’s take a look at 5 gorgeous ways you can emulate ash wood accents in your home interiors.
1. Media consoles
Media consoles are a trendy way to introduce bold accents in your interior designs. They’re relatively small and simple, but their presence has a huge impact. This image shows how you can use black ash accents in your media console while setting it against a light backdrop to get a gorgeous effect. It’s a great way to go about this particular material introduction.
2. Mixture of both
White and black ash textures are quite contrasting. There’s always a subtle difference in the grain that makes for an amazing contrast. So, if you want to use both versions of this texture in your interior designs at the same time, then you can custom design a shelf that features a unique blend of both. It can be abstract and symmetrical in design.
3. Complementing both textures
Whenever you use both versions of ash wood textures in your interior designs, it’s always recommended to build the ambiance up to suit the surroundings. You can go for a stark white backdrop that brings out the best of both of these textures. Then you can go the extra mile and accessorize them with baubles and trinkets that complement the achromatic look.
4. Extensive usage
If you’ve fallen in love with the grey-tinged accents of the ash wood texture, then you’ll definitely want to use it extensively in your home interiors. Study rooms are a great place for extensive use of this texture. You can emulate it in the floor, shelves and desk, then contrast the whole look with starkly coloured furniture, accessories and window treatments.
5. Complementing with patterns
Ash wood textures come off looking the best when they have been paired with the bold patterns. These patterns can be as austere or as eclectic as your aesthetic allows them to be. The star spangled chair in this bedroom interior is a great example of how you can introduce these patterns.
