Blog posts: Wood on walls
Posted on May 08, 2013
We live in fast-paced, pre-packaged, pre-fabricated days. No time to stop and smell the roses, no time to gaze at your navel, no time to sit alone and soak up the ambience of a room. If you want the smell of cut grass on a lazy afternoon, it can be manufactured. If you want a shirt you never have to iron, there’s a factory that can do it. So it’s no wonder that many interior designers are turning back to nature for inspiration, but it’s a double-edged sword. How do embrace the warmth and texture of natural wood without the painstaking effort and environmental cost? It’s easy, just go for the innovative product called Wood On Wall (WOW).

Imagine the scene. A fresh cartload of marigolds arrives at the mud hut. The hippies stop weaving their clothes for moment and stick a flower behind their hair. The stovetop bubbles away as the scent of mung beans and lentils drifts across the compound and people join hands to sing about the whale. Moonbeam and Rainbow dance across the untouched earth and more people arrive to surrender their possessions and hug the Sharing Tree. Sound like your town? Probably not, but you don’t have to go all barefoot and altruistic to save the planet. Why not start with your walls?

Humans have a primeval attachment to the forest, so it’s no surprise that more and more designers are turning to the natural warmth of wood. But timber is expensive and using wood in a large commercial space can limit the options available in your renovation. But now you can live out your dream of conducting business in a Nordic woodland setting or a steamy jungle dotted with snarling jaguars. How? Well it’s all possible through an amazing product that gives you great flexibility at a realistic price… the stunning collection of Wood-On-Walls by Gilford.
