Arts and Craft Interior Design

  • Household items have the look of being handcrafted,
  • Handcrafted items often include textiles, tile work, metal work, and ceramics,
  • Furnishings are simple and functional, not overly ornamental,
  • Oftentimes furniture is built into rooms, as a part of the architectural design,
  • Construction elements are exposed to show handiwork, such as exposed beams or joints in the construction of furniture,
  • Autumnal colour palette with tones that reflect nature,
  • The Arts and Crafts colour palette takes its subtle, muted beauty straight from the natural world: stones, bark, leaves, and grasses. Although you don’t have to limit yourself to browns and greens, any hue that is less obviously organic — such as blue — should be dusty or dirty.

Flooring falls right in line with the natural aesthetic: hardwood (planks or parquet), stone, slate.
