Eco chic

Life can be chaotic, so it’s no surprise people are craving calm interiors inspired by nature. This look employs the unadorned beauty of natural textures to create a serene, soul-restoring space. The white is warmed up with layered natural materials including wood, branches, woven fibres, shells, coral and leather. Beading, weaving and tribal touches lend an organic, hand-crafted feel to the room. The style is chic yet casual – perfect for a laidback lounge to relax in.

How to get the look

-Textured paint on the feature wall warms up the white look. You can use different methods to apply textured paint to achieve a variety of finishes.

-Elements like the linen sheet over the sofa and a vintage rug add a sense of casualness to the space and are cost-effective decorating options.

-After layering the white base elements, we added a chair, side table, stools and branches – all featuring natural wood – as a second layer, and then plants in baskets and pots as accents to bring the outdoors in.

-The all-white accessories are far from boring as each is uniquely shaped and textured, from the vases and bowl, to the shells, coral and patterned pouf.
