How To Style Natural Textures
Natural textures are one of the hottest trends for autumn winter. Every year we see people looking to bring the outdoors in, with natural woods, soft fabrics and a variety of natural textures to accessorise their rooms. We’ll take you through some of the key pieces we’ll think you’ll need to jump on this trend and bring natural touches to your home.
Reclaimed wood is a great choice for any home looking to add natural textures for this season. We stock a variety of furniture pieces crafted from reclaimed wood that have all been sourced sustainably, making it a great choice to bring the outdoors indoors. The reclaimed timbers give the furniture extra character, giving your home a rustic feel that never will go out of style.
For a versatile reclaimed wood, our Talin Sideboard will blend into both modern and classic interiors. An ideal collection to build your dining spaces around, the Talin collection stars blonde reclaimed wood and a blend of traditional and modern design elements, making it a stunning choice for any home.
Leather is a perfect choice for a classic sofa that will never go out of style. Still fitting in with natural fabrics, a comfortable leather sofa with room to snuggle up in is a living room essential for this season. When choosing a leather sofa this season, seek earth tones that will warm up your room and keep the room feeling soft and cosy. Keep it traditional with warm-toned browns for a timeless feel that will never go out of style.
This Alexander & James Bailey sofa provides everything you need to achieve this trend. Classic design and the rich brown leather pair perfectly to create an inviting and warm space that looks perfect for combining natural textures.
Storage Made Naturally
Adding interesting textures to your furniture is an ideal way to add this seasons’ trends. We’ve seen wicker be used in a variety of ways this season. From storage drawers in furniture to individual pieces, this natural, on-trend texture is an easy addition to make to your home this autumn.
Our Gloucester range is perfect for anyone looking for storage that injects this wicker trend subtly. A number of pieces in this collection include wicker storage drawers that match perfectly with the oak finishes of the wood. This Gloucester bookcase includes the wicker baskets neatly at the bottom.
We’ve also got a selection of wicker baskets that can be added to any space for little extra autumn cosiness. Try adding Wicker Baskets like these Grey Kubu Wicker Chests to your living room or bedroom for extra storage. They’re roomy enough to fit a variety of items, including cosy throws and pillows so you have somewhere to keep all of your autumn essentials.
Once all the furniture is in place, all that’s left to do is accessorise with natural textures. Think sheepskin, wool, faux-fur and other plush fluffy textures that add a luxurious feel. Keep the room looking soft and opt for naturalistic colours. Combined with the natural feel of the woods and leather, this will ground your colour scheme. Think blossom pinks, sage greens and neutrals to keep the look grounded and fresh.
We’ve selected a few of our favourite home accessories that fit perfectly with these natural textures and soft colours.
This white sheepskin rug is the perfect rug to throw down. The soft texture adds so much to a room, while the white adds a fresh colour to the space. This sheepskin rug is also available in plenty of neutral shades, so you can find the perfect one for you. Add even more naturalistic texture with woollen cushions. This Mongolian lamb fur cushion is a perfect addition to any room. With the natural texture and pale pink colour, it’s an on-trend piece for this season.
Bringing The Outdoors Indoors
Once you’re down to the finishing touches, why not complete the nature feel of a room by adding artificial plants? They add a perfect splash of green that’s on-trend and are a low maintenance option for anyone looking to add houseplants to a living space. What’s great about plants is that they blend in well in any room, making them a versatile option to place around your home.
We love this Crassula, thanks to the beautiful, rustic-inspired pot it comes in. It’s the perfect way to add a pop of green, without the complicated needs of a real house plant.
We have a variety of artificial plants, so simply pick the one that suits your mood. From everything from artificial bouquets to minimalist pussy willow, we’ll have an artificial plant that will fit perfectly in your home.
