Natural Contrast

Below is a design scheme we are loving right now and can't wait to put to use in one of our clients homes!  The combination of wood, stone, iron, sisal and other natural fibers is the perfect blend of materials for a subtle organic look, while the contrast of the light and dark materials adds a pop of interest.
Overall, a neutral palette with mixed textures and shapes creates a simple and clean design while still reflecting a bit of drama.


This fun mirror has a wonderful unfinished look about it while still looking regal!


We love the patterned texture on this iron pendant.


These organic yet glamorous papers are by Osborne & Little.



This room as a wonderful mix of materials while keeping the overall look very collected.
  
This sofa has a clean, simple look with a unique back detail which keeps it interesting.



The perfect ethnic print fabric!
 
We love this coffee table and its stunning clean lines softened by the beautiful natural stone top.



Sisal is a fantastic natural material that works well combined with almost any design style!  Swatch above by Merida.



The various textures and materials in this neutral space add great character and interest.


Holly Hunt as some of the best natural fabrics available to designers today.  Against the Ropes above.




The two materials used in this shower are the perfect pair like salt is to pepper!  We think this contrast is simply stunning!
