Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living room. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition. Be it modern industrial, shabby chic, modern eclectic or farmhouse; irrespective of the style of your living room, a smart wooden accent wall fits in snugly. The finish, type of wood, texture and hue might have to vary depending on the subtle changes in the living room. But an accent wall in wood is a versatile addition that is bot neutral and dramatic at the same time. It can double as a relaxing backdrop and a beautiful focal point – doing all of this without ever trying too hard. Maybe this is precisely why it is the cool new trend that everyone is in love with.
It would barely come as a surprise to anyone following early trends of 2017 that natural design elements are currently a hit among homeowners and designers alike. Wood is the undoubted leader of this pack with modern homes embracing the warmth and organic elegance of the material at its beautiful best. Be it ingenious decor, stylish accessories or even exceptional backdrops, wood is pretty much everywhere you look around. Now is definitely a great time to get in on the ‘woodsy wave‘ and you can do it without completely revamping your existing living room.
In the world of contemporary design and decor, adaptability and versatility are the two key elements that always come up trumps. Sure, one still needs that perfect blend of form and function to create an unforgettable, inviting interior. But designers are increasingly moving away from traditional furnishings and turning toward flexible, modular units to get this job done.
