Write it down, we’re saying it here–2015 is the Year of Wood. Why? Because designers are using timber here, there and everywhere to deliver nature, texture and warmth in unique fresh ways. In her living room, Livia Rebecchini uses wood to draw the eye in, then up an open staircase that anchors this cavernous space like floating modernist art. Bleached beams and wood ceiling add a rustic sense to this eclectic setting that’s located in an unexpected place–the two top floors of a 16th century palace in Rome.
Cambridge storage bins spin wood an industrial chic way. Each metal frame houses six wire drawers that are hidden behind wooden drawer fronts embellished with chalkboard panels.
Adura Mix luxury vinyl tile (Relic color shown here) is a wood/stone look with linear graining effects and a subtle stone texture derived from nature, yet served up in a modern way. Eco-friendly too, Mix is FloorScore® certified so it complies with strict indoor air quality standards.
Whether your home is uber urban, country cozy or beachy keen, wood can prove transforming. So isn’t it time you went…into the woods, too?
