Nurturing natural shades

Many of us want curl-up comfort in our bedrooms, so a large expanse of Heart Wood is perfectly set off by a coffee or terracotta shades trim. Use it to add visual interest with a two-tone wall or to frame windows or skirting boards. If you want to complete the room’s look, leather, rich wood colours and a touch of metallic are recommended.
