Interior Design Tips and Tricks to transform your home and office!

“Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.”

– Nate Berkus, Interior Designer.

Are you looking to revamp your living space with a touch of sustainability and elegance? Look no further… At Homewood, we offer a wide range of sustainable furniture made from solid wood, each with its unique characteristics and benefits. Here are some interior design tips and tricks to help you create a clever and aesthetic space using our eco-friendly furniture options:

  1. Timeless Appeal with Solid Wood: Solid wood furniture exudes classic beauty that never goes out of style. Opt for pieces like our Cottonwood or Blackwood furniture, with their straight grains and fine textures, to add a timeless charm to your interiors. The natural variation in colour and grain patterns makes each piece unique.
  2. Maximise Strength and Durability: Solid wood furniture is naturally strong and can withstand heavy loads, making it ideal for long-term use. Consider incorporating Sugar/Spotted Gum pieces, known for their hardness and durability, especially for outdoor furniture. These pieces can seamlessly transition from indoor to outdoor spaces, providing a cohesive design.
  3. Low Maintenance, High Quality: Our solid wood furniture requires minimal maintenance. You won’t have to worry about frequent repairs or replacements. Choose Camphor wood, which not only boasts a unique grain pattern but also offers excellent resistance to rot and insects due to its natural extractives.
  4. Sustainable Living: By opting for solid wood furniture from Homewood, you contribute to sustainability efforts. Wood from sustainable sources is fully renewable and environmentally friendly. Red River Gum, with its rich dark brown colour and interlocked grain pattern, serves as a striking choice that aligns with eco-conscious living.
  5. Create a Cohesive Look: Mix and match different wood types to create an eclectic and harmonious look in your space. For example, blend the warm tones of Blackwood with the sleek finish of Cottonwood for a balanced and inviting atmosphere.
  6. Enhance Lighting: Solid wood furniture can be accentuated by the right lighting. Use pendant lights or floor lamps strategically to highlight the unique features and textures of your wooden pieces. This will add depth and character to your interiors.
  7. Accessorise Mindfully: When decorating with sustainable furniture, choose décor and accessories that complement the natural beauty of wood. Earthy tones, soft textiles, and indoor plants can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
  8. Customise Your Space: Don’t hesitate to personalize your furniture pieces. Our solid wood furniture allows you to paint, stain, or finish them according to your preferences, ensuring they perfectly fit your interior design concept.
