sisal, wicker, timber

I love using natural materials in my designs because they have a timeless quality so they won’t date quickly.  At the moment I have a love for timbers that have a muted tone and whitewash finish. They look great in a Hamptons or rustic style home and they help to create a very relaxed look which is very easy to live with. Rugs make such a difference to a room and I generally use wool like this beautiful geometric patterned rug or sisal. Using wicker and sisal is a great way to add texture to a room. I have had a sisal rug in our family room for many years and I still really love it and I find it really easy to live with as any spills come up quickly.  This wicker side table and tray is so handy for a family room and I absolutely love them. The side table can be in front of a sofa and it can be moved around depending on who needs it at the time because its a perfect height for putting food and drinks on. I can not rave about it enough. I Love it!!!!

Linen fabrics are always beautiful and I particularly like to use linen for cushions. This cushion is a lovely natural colour and I do love a stripe so to me its perfection. My last favourite thing is a timber ball chandelier. There are a couple of different styles to choose from but this is a favourite. (check out our website for other style) These chandeliers are great for entrances, living areas, kitchens, bedrooms and stairwells – Lol- they actually look great anywhere.

Hope you are inspired to use natural materials in your home. Andrea xx
