Pantone’s choice for color of this year is green, an amazing color which reminds us how fortunate we are to enjoy all of the offers Mother Nature provides us with. This is also a great opportunity to reconnect with nature through wood as one of our material options, perhaps with smooth finishes and furniture that contribute to create warmth and texture in a home style that is comfortable as well as inviting. Here’s some of the trendiest ways you can opt for in order to decorate your home with natural wood look elements.
Natural & retro- inspired outdoor furniture
Retro feeling seems to be one of the most popular trends we are going to get inspired by this year, therefore you can consider it for your outdoor design. 2017 is a good year to forget about those overly ornate wrought iron and plastic faux- wood furniture, and give natural wood look a go; woven style as well as crochet techniques are back to add texture to any space of your outdoor area. Rattan and teak are two amazing materials you can opt for, in order to recreate that great look from the ‘70s. Combine concrete flooring with solid teak tables and chairs to create a beautiful outdoor look, that will perform at its very best over time.
Satin finished wood floors
This year we have been seeing that there are many home trends which have stayed the same, however when it comes about flooring new wood trends are definitely heading homeowners’ way to show them flooring options that may not been seen out in the world until now. Flooring industry understands that homeowners’ tastes constantly change and that is why they have designed a perfect compromise in between glossy and matte floors, the result is a satin underfoot surface that is not such a drastic step, a less polished flooring that will never go out of style.
Natural wood cabinetry
From white oak kitchen cabinets to a dark walnut island, there is no doubt that natural wood has found its way to your home’s hub this 2017. After some years of same color combination in their kitchens, homeowners are asking for something different in their cabinetry; and so, the tendency is to mix natural wood, paint and metals in the kitchen. Natural wood look in your kitchen is an amazing way to create a room with texture since you can choose a mix of light wood veneered lowers and white lacquered uppers to make your kitchen truly stands out.
Reclaimed wood, bamboo and cork are just some of the many flooring options we are seeing these days; they are here to show that traditional flooring style is out and therefore, they are new characters which have joined the flooring party. Reclaimed wood is a unique, durable and Earth- friendly floor material; this option has taken off so quickly due to its manufacturing process (re- using old building materials). This type of flooring will be a trend that sticks around for years to come, its popularity is increasing every time. I am obsessed about this flooring style because is warm, inviting and adds plenty of character to any room where you install it.

This modern twist will add eye- catching look to your home in the best energy efficient way.
