Finishing touches: accessories to complete your design
Decorating with plank furniture puts the emphasis on raw and natural beauty. It's a trend that's red hot thanks to its emphasis on simplicity and warmth, letting the character of the wood shine through. Your take on rustic can be as refined or relaxed as you want, depending on the accessories you choose. Those all-important finishing touches will really bring your decor together.
Keep it classic
Wood pairs really well with other unadorned finishes like metal and leather. Offset your plank living room furniture with understated chalk-white walls and a pop of colour like striking fuchsia or fresh aqua blue. Retro touches like vintage lamps and collections of curated objects add warmth and personality. It's an easy way to tie together a beautifully classic space with bags of character.
Play up the durability and authenticity of your plank dining room furniture with beautiful soft furnishings. Upholstered chairs and benches plus ornate mirrors and organic ceramics throw the attention directly onto your table. With its patina, imperfections and ability to absorb scratches and dings, a plank dining table is the perfect choice for a high-traffic dining room.
The minimalist palette is about to get a makeover. Out go cool neutrals in favour of warm colours and textures. Plank furniture is a perfect fit thanks to its bold, clean lines and natural rawness. Create a comfortable yet contemporary space with pieces like this cube coffee table that brings natural character to a modern living room. Add sleek glass dome lamps for a truly approachable take on the trend.
Take an informal approach to formality by avoiding the urge to get matchy-matchy. Modern interiors are ditching the formal sets in favour of a focus on complementary styles and finishes. It's the perfect way to create a formally informal dining room - try pairing a funky heart-shaped mirror with a plank furniture sideboard and add lush floor-to-ceiling window treatments in a thoughtful mix of pattern and warm neutrals for a casually elegant effect.
The new neutral palette
Natural wood tones are at the heart of the new neutral palette. Out go cool greys and in come warm tones of terracotta, cream and mustard. Chalk paints deliver a desirable dusky finish and depth of colour that makes a perfect fit with the new cosiness. These colours will offset your plank furniture to perfection - just add matching rugs, cushions and a squashy sofa to curl up in.
Highlight the texture
The beauty and texture of raw wood is almost impossible to replicate. Instead, add wooden accents throughout the room that play off the vibe of your plank furniture. A contemporary wooden tripod lamp, wooden storage boxes and a wood framed mirror all replicate the texture throughout your room for your take on rustic chic.
