Interiors Inspiration: Wild Woodlands

Draw inspiration from the depths of the forest with colours inspired by the wild. Think greens from foliage and indigos from the night, mixed with light shades of white and grey. The palette is modern and edgy, yet surprisingly calming.

The easiest application is on the walls and Dulux have released a winter collection focused on these earthy woodland colours. I’d personally opt for painted walls over wallpaper to enhance simplicity for luxury appeal. I may be a little bias when it comes to this scheme – I have just painted two bedrooms in Dulux Lexicon, the very first colour that Dulux recommends for the wildland trend…

This palette is about creating warmth with natural leather and timber textures. The dark and icy hues contrast perfectly with beautiful oak and walnut, as well as tan and chocolate leathers, for ambience and luxury.

Add an occasional chair with timber detailing like the Coco Republic Oslo Lounge or a statement floor lamp with a timber stand for interest. A leather sofa like the Tucker works perfectly against a sophisticated indigo feature wall or I love the Max Sparrow Manhattan Bench Seat styled with a forest green cushion and white thick knit throw.

To complete the wildland feel, style your home or space with a lush hide, flat weave rug and an oversized vase with twigs collected from local bushland.

The scheme complements Scandinavian interiors but can also work for other contemporary styles or mid century design. Be inspired with my gallery below.
