Natural Textures & Linen

Natural Textures and Linen Sitting Room

The movement towards natural textures and materials in the home is also about creating a welcome retreat from hectic, modern life. Whether it's bringing greenery indoors or experimenting with wood finishing, this trend works across many styles and homes- from rustic and tropical to airy and Scandanavian.

Ochre pairs beautifully with other natural textures and finishes, from warm woods to rough linens. Ochre can range in depth, from light creams too full-blown mustard shades and rich, deep yellows.

“The growth of natural fabrics such as linen reflects an ongoing shift towards sustainability. Linen is a versatile, durable material, with both cooling and warming qualities depending on the weather. This makes it a great choice for a comfy, stylish sofa all year round, and as an added bonus, its signature finish creates both visual and tactile texture in a space. With its soft beige and oatmeal shades, a linen sofa pairs up well with elements like indoor plants, rattan and wood for a tranquil, relaxed vibe in the home.”

Drama, Frustration, Pain and Elation:

Chelsea Flower Show 2019: The Savills and David Harber Garden 

“You need to interact with a sculpture. It’s great to see it being made; the sparks, the metal, the energy, the passion. But it’s also nice to see it doing its job: to sit in an environment and tell a story. I’m very passionate about the fact that the story isn’t necessarily about the piece, but what it reflects and how it works with its environment.”

Landscaping a Natural Mind-Spa

Laura Jones @ The Oxfordshire Gardener

Gardeners have long known that composing, shaping and digging gardens has a gentle yet deep way of calming a troubled or busy mind, and in recent years the psychological benefits of spending time communing with nature has been widely publicised. But what you may not know is that the quality of your green space plays a pivotal role.
