Bringing nature into your home

Bring the beauty of the outdoors indoors by adding natural elements to the interior spaces. Several ecological elements can be incorporated in to the decor scheme to turn the home into a cozy refuge.  With our lifestyles being rather stressful and chaotic, more so at work, this will not only provide warmth to spaces, but will improve mental health and help you remain calm and relaxed.

The size of the room should be your first consideration; the size and the color of the furniture play an important role in making the room look spacious. Whatever natural light the room gets should be channelized and put to the best possible use. Furthermore, the placement of the bed should be such that it’s not the first thing that you see when you walk into the room.

This entire experience of creating a natural habitat can be brought about by choosing furniture wisely. It is essential to pick up pieces that are finished in their natural character. The wood must be treated in a way that its natural grain is highlighted to perfection. The bed which is the central piece of the bedroom sets the mood; a raw wood bed from Knock on wood’s forest collection is a perfect example. A raw wood bench like the Ketch and a log lamp wood compliment the ambience.

The décor is further accentuated by keeping the walls neutral (in a palette of greys, creams and whites). The combination of such colors with wooden elements proves ideal to provide a warm setting. You can be experimental in terms of flooring and opt for brick tiling or choose light wooden flooring to help dark wood furniture remain the focal point in the room. In order to enhance the marriage of the indoor and outdoor spaces, mood lighting must be incorporated.

A few simple additions to the existing decor can freshen and brighten it up:

  1. Adding mirrors to walls- Mirrors reflect the ambience around them and are perfect way to dress up walls. Large mirror panels not only open up spaces they brighten them as well.  Reflecting light and colour mirrors magnify everything.
  2. Wall Murals –another great way to do u the walls is wall murals, in wood or any other material the mural adds a texture to the wall.
  3. Tables – adding an entrance table to your foyer , makes the house look more welcoming. An arrangement of flowers or candles or just coloured bottles and make the entrance of the house more celebratory
  4. Lights – the brighter the better. Chandeliers add glamour and cheer to a room. Adding a mood light to a corner of your living room creates drama and livens up a dead corner.

The aforementioned tips will help you interact with the outside while remaining indoors

interior & bedroom furniture sets

The theme was simple, the couple was very happy with the material, wood and they wanted their home to reflect the same. Thus, the interiors carry a lot of wood to maintain a warm, rich feel. Aarti strongly believes the environment has to work for the client and they have to feel at ease.

The bed was made with different types and shades of wood. The thought behind using light and dark shades of the same color was to invoke a calm and relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom. The brass in the headboard added the right amount of drama and worked wonders in the overall scheme.

“Home is a celebration of self and must tell stories as unique and special as one self”….though, Mr Gupta left all major decisions to his wife, he was very clear as to what he wanted for his bar. As a result, the bar is an absolute reflection of his idea.

Since the cabinet was being placed in the same area as the bar, we used a lighter shade of wood in order to avoid making the furniture look bulky. The burnt finish in the pine wood cabinet and bar added to the visual splendor.

The home is functional and organized from the word go. The team was delighted with the warm and welcoming environment they were able to create with their pieces.

Clean and Care instructions

clean and care-7

1 .  Simply use a dry, soft, lint-free cloth for routine cleaning. Do not use any solvent or harsh cleaner.

2.  Periodically apply a coat or two of the oil provided to you along with your furniture. This will condition the wood, keeping it looking very natural with a matte finish while enhancing and protecting the wood grain.

3.  Even though the imperfections in the wood add to its allure, using coasters and place mats will help prevent unwanted stains and marks. Do not place hot items directly on your surface.

4.  Prevent spilling of bulk liquid on table. Cleanup any spill immediately.

5.  In order to prevent splitting, maintain even humidity conditions in your home. Try to keep humidity levels in your home between 40 and 45%. Any lower could crack the wood and any higher could cause swelling. For most of us, this means running a humidifier in the winter and an a/c or de-humidifier in the summer.

6.  Do not place in direct sunlight. This will help prevent against fading.

Unique by Default

Over the years the hospitality industry has transformed from an art to a science. The combined impact of shifting demographics and new technologies are the primary catalysts for this metamorphosis.The millennial generation that forms the largest segment of the hospitality industry doesn’t want a standardized, homogeneous travel experience.

teak tableExploration, interaction and experience are the major focus of the younger generation who are willing to pay more for a greater experience. As a result, the importance of hotel lobbies cannot be stressed enough. Hotels are moving toward a more integrated lobby model that addresses all of the aforementioned needs, offering a comfortable, convenient space in which to congregate, enjoy food and drink, socialize and conduct business. To accentuate the ambiance unique designs like the Translations (from the Canvas of Life Collection), Forest Brew (from the Canvas of Life Collection) and the Wall installation (from the Mardi Gras Collection) can come into play.

Get the Festive Look !

“Diwali is the perfect time to brighten up your home and bring in that cheerful vibe. Add mirrors to open up and brighten your space, as light and colour are reflected in them,” says Aarti Aggarwal, Creative Head, Knock on Wood (KNW).

sofasSofasGet the look:

1. Wall murals are all the rage. So use wood or any other material to create a mural that adds texture to your wall.
2. Add a table near the foyer to instantly make your home look more inviting. Use this space to set up a pretty flower arrangement or just decorate it with scented candles for that festive feel.
3. Bright lights are a must for the season. Chandeliers add that extra glamour to the room, but if you are not keen on that, stick to mood lighting to liven up a dead  corner or create some drama.
