Oak and White, Oak and Cream or Oak and Grey Furniture. What to choose?!
Beautiful Neutrals – Oak and white or Neutrals is the perfect colour Choice for Furniture.
The trend for neutrals has well and truly taken over, with the combination of oak and a neutral satin painted finish being a popular choice.
Oak is a classic wood finish and ties in well with most colour palettes, as well as types of property. It feels as at home in a modern house, as a traditional one. Combining it with a light painted finish keeps the room light, bright and fresh feeling. Oak and white bedroom furniture is classic colour combination.
For something a little warmer you might want to choose oak and cream. White can feel a little too stark a contrast in some settings, and cream offers a slightly warmer tone that ties in with oak beautifully.
Accessorise with Brights or Pastels
Oak and satin painted finishes are ideal for bedroom furniture, where the rest of your colour palette can really be let loose. Accessorise with bright and beautiful soft furnishings for impact. Alternatively stick to a pastel colour palette, and accessorise in soft pinks, blues or greens for a calming atmosphere.
The beauty with a base of oak and neutral satin finish, is that it gives you the opportunity to let your accessories really do the talking. It also allows you to change things as the years go by, instead of being stuck with one base colour.
Oak in the Lounge and Hallway
As well as bedrooms, it’s also an ideal base for lounges and hallways. Oak also looks beautiful when combined with moss green.
