Let it be all wood.
There are few, if any, materials as natural to us homo-sapiens as wood. It provides our most basic material for building, for furnishings and for fuel – and has done so for a few hundred thousand years now! Perhaps that’s why we still love the look and feel of natural wood in our homes today when it’s no longer actually needed. There are always substitutes, but there’s nothing that looks and feels quite the same – and there’s surely no material that’s quite as comforting to body and spirit.

If you can keep a coordinated style of wood throughout your home – this will really help with the overall interior design motif. There are many ranges of furnishings now available in 100% natural oak; a myriad of designs from traditional to contemporary. Consequently, you can choose a range of solid oak furniture that blends perfectly with everything. Whether you live in a country home, in suburbia, or in a city center apartment, wood blends well with any style.
sideboards to beds, kitchen tables to oak wardrobes, coffee tables, dining tables and occasional items – all with the same overall look and design that will work wonders in any home setting.
