As the temperature drops, we look for ways to bring comfort and cosiness into our homes. Winter is, of course, the perfect chance to play with textures and layering - think natural sheepskins, plush cushions and luxe velvet chairs. The cooler months are also the perfect time to combine different timber tones to add depth and warmth to your interior.
Our favourite timber to achieve this feel? Walnut.
Curious Grace's incredible team share their favourite ways to style beautifully rich walnut.

Nothing alludes to comfort more than the rich, dark brown of walnut timber. Play to its warmth with toffee and wine linens for a delicious bedroom number or make it pop against a white wall with simple concrete or metal elements - the timber will add depth and definition to any sparse, industrial space!

If you're uncertain where to start with timber tones my styling motto is to just mix it up! Blend it, Mix it, Contrast it. There is nothing more gorgeous than tones of dark American walnut contrasting against pale oak floors. Golden pinky tone timbers or mid warm tones in other items of furniture or flooring blend back beautifully with walnut. Timbers vary from tree to tree, country to country and will still continue to alter in colour and texture over time after initial production. No timber will remain the same as the day you bought it as what you are buying is natural beauty. It moves slightly with the weather and fine cracks in summer may close over winter months in certain climates. Plastic will still be the same in 15 years, but glorious timber will golden, age and mature in patina over time. It shows the scars of love and laughter and tells its own story.
