Go casual with a pared-back mix of wood, soft hues and modern country furniture.

Love this Room

  • Bring texture to a muted scheme with wall cladding – vertical panels are easy to install and, in a small space, could just be added to a feature wall.
  • Use worn, rustic wood in a rich colour on furniture or fl ooring to add depth and texture – try walnut or mahogany shades as a contrast to pastel hues.
  • Add a personal touch with a gallery wall of prints and family photos – intermingled with empty vintage frames for a quirky effect.
  • Choose open shelving for a sophisticated way to display crockery and dining essentials, and use reclaimed oak crates to house smaller items.

 

Styling Tip

Update traditional furniture with on-trend baby pink and mint hues for a modern twist on a classic look.

 

Good Idea

Hang eye-catching, contemporary pendant lights over a dining table to zone an open-plan space.
