A wee bit of wood-love on the blog today… it adds a touch of warmth to a cool interior and by using wood in accessories you avoid the heavy look that larger pieces of furniture bring.

In my little house I have wooden beams that criss-cross the ceilings and some days all I wish to do is paint them white while on others I enjoy the quirky un-perfectness they bring, so they stay and give me something to ponder on while enjoying a glass of vin!

One piece of advice I will give is the paler tones of wood such as oak bring a much lighter and cooler feeling to your home and works well with predominately white interiors whereas darker or more red NZ timbers work well with off-white and creamy warm walls.

Timber flooring is beautiful in a home no matter the tone and those homes I visit with it always make me feel warm and welcome.
