Keep it simple with natural walls, floors and window treatments. This keeps the whole 'canvas' tonal, avoiding hard contrasts which can be distracting.
The aim is to bring harmony and cohesion. This has been achieved by choosing a limited palette and working within that. Choices of furniture, lighting, fabrics and accessories are set against this simple, basic canvas.
This is the idea behind natural style; creating an uncluttered home that makes the most of natural materials and timelessly classic shapes.
True to its origins, natural style is unfussy, it prefers simplicity for a clear uncluttered and harmonious look.
Natural style does not prescribe. It does not dictate certain colours or particular furniture designs. Simple tricks to link what could seem disparate pieces of furniture or accessories, even if the pieces come from different eras. The key is proportion...pieces that are too small for a room can become lost, while those that are too large can become overbearing. Look for balance and items with good basic designs.
Natural style makes the most of natural materials. They have an enduring quality because they come from nature and simply can't go out of fashion.
