The Woodland Retreat Trend

With staycations becoming increasingly popular, many people are looking to transform their spaces into their dream getaway. After all, our homes should be the places where we can relax and unwind after a busy day in total comfort.

If your dream getaway is a cosy lodge in a distant forest, then you’ll adore this latest trend! Woodland retreat is all about piecing together a warm, tranquil, enchanting woodland theme in your home.

By introducing some rustic themes, and plenty of texture, you can create your own country-style lodge, perfect for relaxing!

Discover our guide to every interior design style to inspire your next project.

Embrace Wooden Furniture

There is nothing that speaks more for a country cottage interior than wood. If you want to embrace the woodland retreat trend, be generous with the amount of wooden furniture and features you use in your interior.

One of the great things about wood is how incredibly versatile it can be for interiors. Wooden tables, sides and seats are a great way of adding a rustic feel to any space. A reclaimed cupboard, side table or wardrobe is another way of adding more soft colours and textures to a room.

Wood is also an incredibly easy texture to pair with other features. The kitchen below is a beautiful example of how wood can bring various shades to a space, while our brass lights add a wonderful textured element.

Rustic Colours

Finding the right colours for a rustic interior is one of the biggest challenges for any budding designer. There are many options for showcasing your style, but at the same time, it’s essential that you keep the homely, country atmosphere of this trend.

Darker pastel shades tend to work wonders with any country interior design. Soft, natural colours, like sage, blush pink, sea blue and cloudy grey are great for adding tone while keeping a relaxed environment.

For an extra pop in your rustic interior, our industrial style lights are a perfect choice. See below how our beautiful chandelier collection draws eyes upwards with its warm, natural tones that compliment the cosiness of the room while also adding style.

Natural Details

When we think of old village country homes, we imagine busy, often unorganised spaces – boots in the hall, photos on the wall and so on. For a more modern twist, add to your design with small little touches that remind you of home, or your favourite countryside getaway.

One of the biggest trends right now is bringing the outside in, and the woodland retreat works wonderfully with this idea. Take your cue from the world outside and fill your space with odes to nature. Objects such as feathers, pebbles, leaves, pinecones and small tree branches look great arranged as a still life on a windowsill.

If you want to help blend your interior design with your outside spaces, our outdoor range is the perfect option. The exterior below showcases beautifully how creating a connection between interior and exterior can help to create a truly coherent design that’s in touch with the natural world.

All our lights are made from natural metals, further highlighting this connection.

Mix & Match

The rustic interior style is all about creating spaces that are busy but retain their warmth and cosiness through soft colours and textures. With this in mind, woodland retreat is the perfect trend to be adventurous with your combinations of shades and tones.

Combine your favourite pieces of furniture to create spaces full of character. We love the modern rustic bedroom design below and how it showcases each unique feature.
