Hello everyone,  its Lisa with another dose of design! As quickly as trends come and go in the design world, it is important to recognize those design elements that are constantly being reinvented and used in unique, innovative ways. A favorite of mine (that I love solely because it really reminds me of fall) is wood. Wood is no longer restricted to a medium for furniture and flooring, it is really something that can be a part of every single design surface. It can be used for funky counter tops, shelving, herringbone wall panels, lighting, you name it!

Take this space via apartment therapy for example-the live edge wood countertop is applied to the stark white, contemporary countertop/cabinets and it completely steals the show. So fresh and organic feeling and it brings a new life to a wood species and tone that may have seemed dated or one-note.

Or this super clean space via the contemporist, where the stark black and white space is contrasted with a warm, rustic wood paneling really captures wood in an amazing way.
And how about wooden staircases taken to a whole new level? This particular one was designed by Arcquitectura en Movimiento via the Stylish Eve and really showcases how amazing wood can really look!
Wood can be a part of your home in so many fun ways, here are some of my favorite wood pieces right now!

  1. love decoration with wood or wood pattern!

  2. Love all that wood in this article! You have such a great sense of style!

  3. Love these wood looks!

  4. This is really an inspiring post. Got lots of ideas for a better joinery project. I never thought it would be that beautiful when applied appropriately within a space. Most designers often opt for tiles in their designs, with less value on wood materials. But these works are exemplary. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I like how the wooden floor tiles complement with the wooden furnitures. Wooden tiles are good to look and one alternative for that "wood-look" is the latest trend of the porcelain tiles, with a look of wood and with a durability of the tile. concrete flooring from is also a wise decision.
