Home Decor with Distressed Wood

Earn some serious personality points for your home by adding texture to your home decor with distressed wood. It can be as easy as sanding down a door or furniture piece or by displaying a vintage collection of chopping boards.

Exposed furniture

The most common mistake a lot of us make is to use too many different types of wood in one space – especially the orange-undertone-varnished variety. Sand down furniture pieces to expose their grain and seal it with a clear matte coat to see the world of difference it makes. marthebo agentlewoman


Chop chop

I have an unhealthy fascination with vintage chopping boards. I simply can’t resist the ones with interesting shapes and cuts on the surface that tell stories of moms cooking up delicious meals day after day for their families. That’s why this simple display of wooden beauties on the left really appeals to me. mydomaine tarteletteblog


Quick fix

Display a beautiful rough tree branch as a clothing rail. The contrast of the rugged branch with the detailed lace dresses are simply gorgeous on the left. Tree disks have been popping up everywhere as decor items and you can buy them at your local nursery and stack them up to create an informal coffee table with lots of personality. kickandconkers refresheddesigns


Beaming beautiful

These exposed wooden beams add a structural element by emphasizing height in these interiors. Use them either raw and distressed to create a barn-feel like in the example on the left or slightly more refined like the whitewashed beams on the right. mydomaine style-files


Delightful doors

Sand down and treat doors with a whitewash or coloured wax to achieve this look. The wax goes into the lines to emphasize them and the end result is beautiful with lots of character. mechantdesign cozycottagecute



Use scaffolding planks to create this look. I simply love the open basin cabinet on the left with its textured wall and sink. It’s got a lovely relaxed feel to it. Large floor-standing mirrors are also still a very trendy item to display in your house so emphasize it by using a bulky frame. decodesign lostintimepl


Windows to the soul

These raw wood industrial floor to ceiling windows look spectacular in this loft-style bedroom. The whole setting has a light and airy feel with different textures playing together, like the bricks, wooden floor and coarsely woven curtain. decordemon


Floating wood

I love these little benches with their exposed tops and organic shapes on the left: it’s a fresh way of contrasting exposed and painted wood in one furniture piece. On the right we have raw wooden shelves that have been turned on their sides and attached to the wall. It creates bands of texture in this alcove and makes a beautiful place to display some of your personal treasures. nordichouse residencestyle



Combine dark distressed wood with grey ceramics, cement and weathered steel to create this dramatic look with an artistic feel. voorhaven7


Eclectic charm

This kitchen on the left has lots of old-world charm with touches of modern sophistication. The contrast of the worn distressed door and bin with the black and white floor is very quirky. The metal  lamp shades in different heights just add a bit of fun to the space. marieclairemaison


I am off to install my chopping board collection on the kitchen wall! Hope you found this post inspiring and will be trying a few of these ideas.

Happy styling,


Chunky Home Decor

Every winter it seems that chunky home decor items get a bit bulkier. Add a knitted throw, rug or scatter in this style to your home to be right on trend.

Soft under foot

I desire one of these chunky knitted rugs for my own home. The one of the right is from the talented designer Anna Mo . Have a look at her gorgeous range on Etsyfrenchconnection boredpanda



Try this natural fiber throw with muted bedding to add a dash of texture to your bedroom. You could even try your hand at it yourself! Have a look at my knitted rug tutorial that was done with the same twine – it works like a charm. mondaytosundayhome


50 shades

I love the yellow blanket stitch added to the grey chunky blanket on the right. It just adds the right amount of colour pop from Anthropologie! digsdigs



This must be my favourite over-sized knitted blanket ever! It’s done in the same tones as the bedding and the textures show off as the light hits the chunky knit. I would love to take a nap under this beauty. freepeople


Retail therapy

Shops are filled with knitted items in different materials. Have a look at the knits @home, Mr Price Home, Weylandts and Hello Pretty. costmad dwellbeautiful


Just add colour

 Chunky knits tend to mostly be in muted tones, from white to grey and natural. I love the impact this mustard yellow blanket from H&M makes on the modern bedroom. athomeinlove


Clever designers

Furniture designers caught onto the trend and have been incorporating knits in their designs. trendhunter gessato


Fashion forward

According to the fashion experts the cable knit will be huge this season. It’s always interesting to see how it gets interpreted in decor, a great example being this scatter and blanket on the left. busybeingfabulous Etsy


Good enough to eat

These gorgeous place mats just made my ‘have to have’ list. I love the tones on this table setting in grey, charcoal and the natural elements incorporated in marble and wood. 79ideas


I hope you found this article inspiring and are rushing out the door to go shop for a chunky knit!

Surprising Textured Walls

Creating a statement wall in your home adds a lovely focus to any room. Adding texture to it makes it even more fun and creates another layer. I have sourced some beautiful examples of textured walls from gently worn to cement finishes and everything in between.

Stripped paint

This paint technique takes textured walls to the next level by revealing color layers. It gives a sense of old world charm and adds lots of character to the settings as the perfect backdrop. buzzfeed Pinterest


Havana inspired

Having a wall with layers deliberately stripped away reminds me of the beautiful walls you see in Havana. It’s like the walls have a story to tell and I love that. sfgirlbybay carlaaston


Distressed cement finishes

Cement finishes are still all the rage and these walls have added texture to them that emphasizes the industrial look by giving it a lived-in feel. trend-daily tinekhome


Seamless cement

The added wavy lines above the headboard adds movement to the wall and makes it less stark. This is such a good example of how wall to floor finishes can work very well combined with the right furniture and accessories. tinekhome


Beautiful bamboo

This wallpaper adds visual texture to the wall. It’s got a lovely warm and inviting feeling to it and works perfectly well with the eclectic decor in this bedroom. mydomaine


Wood cladding

This is far from a new concept but how refreshing is the block paneling on the right? It’s a lovely modern take on the normal plank cladding and creates beautiful lines with the elevation of some of the blocks. It almost has a retro feel of the 70’s to it. homedzine caymandriftwood


Another brick in the wall

Exposed bricks are lovely and a sure winner in almost any space. I love the way the awkward shape of the wall is emphasized by the stark white surrounding the brick wall – it’s very quirky! thedesignerpadwalls7

Bling bling

Metallic wallpapers have been popping up all over the decor show and they’re not just for glamorous hotel foyers any longer. On the right is a marbled wallpaper with a very interesting texture and on the left a teal and gold one that has a Moroccan feel with a twist. zsazsabellagio design-milk


tangible texture

I have installed a wall with textured wallpaper from Builders Warehouse in my home, similar to the one on the left and I simply love it. It was painted the same colour grey as the surrounding walls so is just a subtle texture when the light hits it. The texture on the right is made up of printed tin roof plates that are also a firm favorite of mine. I think it would look great in a kitchen. celebratingeverydaylife anthropologie


I hope these images inspired you to look at your walls differently and set the mood for our month of textures here at Homeology.

Happy styling,


Décor gone wild

It looks like the deer, owl, fox and even wolf have come to play indoors this Autumn. Woodlands creatures are popping up everywhere and we love that decor has gone a bit wild with this theme. You can also just play with faux fur textures if you are of tamed spirit.

I have found some really clever and useful items to incorporate into your interior and also a few inspirational images.

Playful retro

This lovely lounge plays with bold geometric shapes and colors. The woodlands elements were toned down by use of white deer heads and a horse head painting on the back wall.

These too cute animal bowls by Hella Jongerius are simply a must have!

Farmhouse style bedroom

The subtle grey wall makes a lovely backdrop for the branch and scull with an antler installation. It’s further freshened up with crisp black and white bedding.



Shapely chandelier

If you want to go a bit more subtle try this lovely antler chandelier. It’s got a graphic shape that will work well in a modern bedroom.

Soft seating

Combine a shaggy piece of faux fur with a modern chair for the ultimate Scandinavian look.



Blooming antlers

I simply love these original signed fine art photography from Kari Herer on Etsy.com. The contrast of the antlers and the flowers are simply genius and so on trend.

Pretty practical

This horizontal antler coat rack makes for a gorgeous display in a entrance hall and is pretty practical too. It works beautifully with the wooden floor texture.

If you go down to the woods today …

These beautifully framed owl, bear and fox prints from Etsy.com would look great in a nursery. The deer water color print is a more sophisticated take on the subject and could work in any room in your home.
