One of the fastest growing trends this winter is the thoughtful pairing of wood and stone to create an overall tailored and cohesive look. From side tables to vacation homes, the wood and stone trend is gaining momentum in a very big way. Here is a collection of design inspiration so you can incorporate this look into your latest project.
An easy way to incorporate this look into your home is by accessorizing or adding furnishings to your favorite room. Furniture such as Marc Englander’s “Coffee Table |Close Up|” or Areti’s “Circles Side Table” is functional and also doubles as a piece of contemporary art.
The key to this look is to pair stone and wood that have similar coloring. This will create a distinguished color palate that is expressed by colors we often think of as color-neutral. Here, in this kitchen designed by Helene’s Luxury Kitchens, the taupe colors in the Cremo Calacatta pick up similar tones in the cabinetry. Additionally, in the Zebrino White Fireplace designed by Karyn Dismore Interiors the dark wood compliments the dark brown hues for a dramatic, eye catching focal point.
Use wood and stone together to create interesting and open concept room dividers and an intricate facade.
Some natural stone even mimics some of the same characteristics found in stone. The Sandalus Leathered quartzite has similar coloring and veining as you would see in a plank of wood.
