Add touches of wood to your living space to create a home with character, even if you are a sleek and modern furniture lover.

Wooden furniture have long been associated with the rustic and old English cottage themes but there is actually more to wood than just being old and traditional.

As of late, newer homeowners mostly opt for a minimal modernistic approach to their home with sleek structural furniture (very IKEA-like) to keep designing efforts easy and uncomplicated, but that is what we call a house, not a home.

Even when you want to have a simple and modern interior, adding touches of the right kind of wood balance the interior to make your living quarters more homely and grounded like using Ekowood’s Pecan hardword flooring, instead of tiles and carpets.

Bernhardt has a great range of wooden furniture in soft calming colours like its Auberge collection where it adds a touch of elegance to your home.

You can also add decorative furnishing like the Anthropologie caged log holder for a touch of quirkiness, even if you do not own a functional fireplace.

Also consider adding a touch of wood to your high-tech cooking equipment like the La Cronue rotisserie to make your kitchen look more domestic and even give the illusion that you are using a traditional wood fire roast for your cooking.
