Homes+ (Australia) - - TREND ALERT -

When it comes to ply­wood home­wares for 2017, think peg­boards, hooks, han­dles, shelv­ing, gar­lands, bowls and ves­sels, just to name a few! Ply­wood home­wares add soft warmth and tex­ture to a space, and work well with many of the ma­te­rial trends com­ing through this year, such as con­crete, metallics, green­ery and artisan goods.

Peg­board shelves or peg­board walls are be­com­ing quite pop­u­lar in kitchens and chil­dren’s bed­rooms, pro­vid­ing eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble shelv­ing and stor­age for pots, bowls, pans and cook­books, or toys, books and knick-knacks.

Ply­wood dis­play shelves add a funky el­e­ment by in­tro­duc­ing play­ful shapes and colour com­bi­na­tions. Geo­met­ric and cir­cu­lar shapes dom­i­nate this trend, with many re­tain­ing the raw look and feel of the tim­ber, and oth­ers adding pops of colours with dip-dye or paint.

Ply­wood hooks and han­dles are a fea­ture as well as a prac­ti­cal ad­di­tion to any wall or door. Once again, leav­ing the ply in its raw state high­lights the nat­u­ral beauty and grain of the ma­te­rial, with colour in­tro­duced on the face sur­faces or edges of the hooks or han­dles to cre­ate con­trast.

As you can see, there are many great ways to in­cor­po­rate ply­wood into your ex­ist­ing in­te­rior scheme. Be cre­ative, have fun and in­tro­duce the nat­u­ral un­adorned beauty of this con­struc­tion ma­te­rial into your home.
