Natural woods are making a comeback in the in the interior of your home. The element of adding natural wood brings elegance, warmth and sensibility. The natural wood moldings, flooring, paneling, and various trim can create a dimension and character in a space. Soothing shades of beige and natural wood tone are mingled to create a light and modestly luxurious living space.

It can also be stained or painted to revitalize and change their appearance.


Natural wood provides a clean and beautiful space that makes designing creative and enhances the beauty of a home. Here at Southern Care Design we enjoy using natural wood as a transition piece to a room to provide separation of tiles, textiles and movement.

Armchairs, sofas, headboards, or ottomans, a piece of furniture covered in a beautiful rich shade of velvet, speaks of luxury and taking a pleasure in one’s surroundings. But it’s not only luxury furnishings where the trend for this fabric is seeing resurgence. Velvet-style carpet is also on the rise in terms of popularity, while cushions and curtains have never really lost their allure. 


Velvet brings luxurious, elegance, and royalty to a room. The dramatic and dark tones still work wonderfully if you want to create a sense of drama, while the red and blue palette offers a variety of rich hues, exuding a unique jewel-like quality. Meanwhile, softer more recent color palettes of creams and pale greens are fast becoming a popular choice when recreating a Nordic or more contemporary room design.

As for patios, they are an attractive and affordable way to have a private space in the backyard. Patios are very durable and easy to maintain and there are infinite options to personalize them. Adding outdoor kitchens makes it more convenient on those beautiful summer days and fall evenings. The luxury of being able to have all your attraction in one place.
