I personally really love the mixed material look. Not only do you get the sleek modern design but you also warm up the room by adding wooden furniture. Team this with fresh natural fragrances and you're onto a winner!

When we built our house, over 30 years ago, we put in cork floors. It was such a great material; always warm underfoot, perfect for crawling babies and children who spend a lot of time playing on the floor, a very quiet material and so easy to keep clean. Unfortunately when we renovated a few years back we could not find anyone who could renew or replace it. We now have floor boards which look great and I like however I would recommend cork floors to anyone thinking about putting them down. Loved seeing these houses.

Accent with solid wood slices and driftwood handle on the pottery bring the rustic out doors inside!
