Trend Roundup: Light Wash Wood

I’ve always loved the natural look of woodwork in a home and I’m so glad the trend of painting everything white is starting to come to an end. Natural wood can last for hundreds of years and can be refinished again and again to look like new. As I’ve done projects in my house, I’ve tried to stick to the original wood character as much as possible, which has meant a lot of restoration projects.


I’m loving the trend of light to medium wood that is finished to show the beauty of natural grain. It can create a great focal spot for any room. See some of my favorite inspo below!

I love the entire style of this entry way– from the vintage bench and light fixtures, to the stunning door.

This built in is stunning along a simple white wall, and I love the use of pattern behind the shelves to make it feel new.

This vanity is so pretty in the way it combines a soft tone of wood with modern elements, while remaining clean and simple.
