Wood and Stone in Interior Design
Wood and stone have been used in architecture and decoration for centuries and they are still materials which bring comfort, luxury and accent decoration into our homes. We still appreciate the abundance of uses those materials have and even more the grounded and natural touch they bring into interior design.Wood is the original soothing material in a design scheme. Whenever you want cozy or intimate atmosphere or calming down in a undemanding room – wood is the way to go. You would be surprised how often the word Cozy is used as a term in interior design, but in fact its no wonder because we all want our homes to be our little islands of peace and warmness. And the natural, warm colors of wood have the power to do that.
Modern furniture marries wood very well. Clean white furniture with wood accents for example, softens the white color and prevents a room from looking to sharp or even cold. Imagine an all white furnished room, you would get that feeling of sterility that you have in hospitals. While wood flooring lets say will bring earthly and comforting look, kind of taking the room back into being a home and not a laboratory.
