Distressed- in a room it immediately creates that aged, rugged look. Using a washed natural colour tone adds a rustic edge, creating what seems to me like a country barn sort of effect. An extremely calming atmosphere to live in- stripped back to basics.
A trend recurring throughout these images is the use of wood as a statement - from the structural elements of the building, or through floorboards or pieces of furniture. It really gives it that scandi charm offset against white or greywash
