Step into a room adorned with bespoke fitted furniture in a luxurious wood finish and you immediately sense that you are surrounded by something special. You feel compelled to trace the pattern of the woodgrain finish with your fingertips, comforted by the warm, natural tones.
The colours that you select to harmonise with your furniture are a reflection of your taste and individuality and all that is needed to create a distinctive style statement is a little design know how.
A city smart, sophisticated air can be achieved through the marriage of rich tones and pronounced woodgrain finish against a backdrop of pale greys or creams. You may wish to consider a single feature wall in burgundy or gunmetal grey, or a commanding work of art to bring exceptional character to your room.
The richness of Walnut is an excellent choice in modern and period residences alike. To create a truly relaxed ambience, floors and furnishings should remain neutral, perhaps in cream, coffee or a delicate duck egg blue. If your room enjoys good, natural light, add a flourish of individuality by considering a dark tone for one wall. Burgundy or a deep olive green would be a sophisticated choice.
The love affair with Oak continues. Its delightful mid-tones bring light and warmth to a room with a calm, delicate palette. Soft whites and cream complement Oak beautifully, as do cornflower blues and shades of green from teal to sage. To achieve a sense of drama, a feature wall in mulberry or autumn hues would set the scene beautifully.
Beech is a truly wonderful choice for a light and airy study or bedroom. Its pale finish has a discernible warm tone that lends itself to the richer shades of burnt orange or warm red. Retaining one wall in a pale cream will maintain a pleasing balance to your decor.
At home in a stylish modern decor, Granadillo’s signature woodgrain finish has a rare beauty. Co-ordinating your walls in any of the warm tones within Granadillo’s finish will create a calm, elegant quality. May we suggest darker hues from the warm colour palette, such as cherry red or chocolate, with furnishings in a pale, neutral tone to create a room of unrivalled appeal.
Lighter wood finishes, such as our refined Maple finish; create a sense of abundant space. Blend with pale, neutral tones; for instance, almond white or biscuit on the walls and floor covering, and the room will be blessed with a feeling of tranquility; becoming the ideal haven for relaxation. Key furnishings in favoured, bold accent colours would create a more contemporary decor.
Colour trends vary with the seasons. With your Strachan furniture as the centrepiece, drawing upon different colour paletes enables you to transform your home with ease throughout the years as your tastes change.
