You all know I love wood. :)
And I love using it in interiors in all kinds of ways, from furniture to finishes. It adds warmth and texture and even color. In my opinion, it is THE perfect neutral and addition to all spaces.
Thanks to Susi from Design Shuffle who is sharing her thoughts on the many stylish characteristics of wood...
Hi, everyone, I’m Susi and I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. My writing focuses on things I'm passionate about: interior design, decorating ideas, home furnishings, gardening, travel and art. I get to look at gorgeous things all day and write about them. I'm a very lucky girl! I am excited to be invited to write for Studio Surface. Thanks for having me visit, Michelle. When Michelle gave me the topic Many Faces of Wood it made me think of that old movie, The Three Faces of Eve, about multiple personalities. Definitely seems appropriate for wood, doesn't it? Pattern and texture can vary so incredibly when it comes to wood depending on type, cut and finish. I hope you enjoy and are inspired by the many faces of wood. ~ Susi
Plywood has incredible pattern to it. Sanded and polished, it makes a smooth floor that is a mix of patterns perfect for a contemporary or modern space.
This vintage inspired living room features turned, bent, veneered and paneled woods. Each has its own unique characteristics. Pattern and texture can relate to the wood itself or the form it takes.
You Have Been Here Sometime viaA Japanese style bathroom demonstrates the natural warmth of wood. Clean lines and a lack of decorative elements keep the focus on the wood covered surfaces.

Wood grain is a gorgeous pattern of swirls, arcs, circles and lines. This black and white wood floor highlights the pattern of wood grain with a smooth, high polished surface. This is one of those kitchen design ideas that immediately grabs attention and holds it.
Homes viaRough, reclaimed barnwood gives this bathroom rustic charm. The patina of age brings out the pattern of the wood grain.
Hit Decors viaWood walls can take many forms but we've never seen one made of timber ends. Love the collage of circles and the roughness of the bark. Incredible.
Nicety viaPainted wood stumps used as small tables retain their natural feeling. The tree's rings create a concentric pattern on the tops while cracks and bumps add texture to the sides.
