Add touch of outdoors to interior
toned down visually by introducing a sofa or rug in cooler tones, like dark dusky blue, French grey or charcoal. knobbly rugs, knitted or fur throws, weathered timber coffee tables and hand-crafted pottery to lounges and bedrooms. You can even add texture to walls; browse through the range of anaglypta wallpapers in the Resene Wallpaper Collection.
One way to enhance the natural texture in timber is by staining it a warm autumnal colour instead of covering it up with paint. Follow that with a coat of Resene Aquaclear urethane to protect it from the elements.
To enhance the richness and warmth of these natural colours and textiles, complement your lighting with pillar candles, seed lights and table lamps. The recent popularity for warm metallics sits well alongside these earthy colours too. Think about using burnished copper, antique brass, aged gold or rusted effects in your design.
