Often clients ask how they can warm up a particular room and the first they say is what colour should I add? Red or Orange? The answer is neither. The key to warming up a room is quite simply to add texture with natural materials. Here are a few examples of the Black and white theme but notice how the wood warms up the space instantly.

Tom Scheerer does wood better than anybody, frankly, that combination of classic modern (Saarinen tables, et cetera) with hand-hewn rusticity (those plank walls).

I am so glad to hear you say, it is important to add texture first. I completely agree.
