A woodland feel

Oak furniture is a firm favourite of mine for its natural qualities of warmth, the rich colours and the craftsmanship. My house being Victorian has quite airy rooms with large ceilings so the furniture I choose has to look right with the dimensions and in keeping with the period. I find oak furniture items have a timeless appeal that lends itself to any era of property and with that in mind they are a great investment.

I would love this Catalan Ash Large Sideboard from the Oak Furniture Company, great for displaying items and storing all those bits and pieces in the drawers and cupboard. I have a seasonal decorating urge and hence have candles, bunting, decorations, little ornaments and books that I use as a homage to the current season - the technical term is faffing :) So the sideboard could both display and then store them.

Now that Halloween is over with and all the black cat votives, mini pumpkins and spell books are packed away, I need a little inspiration to get through November. 

A little woodland scene around the sideboard would be perfect and shows how versatile oak furniture can be and what a focal point for a room it would be. The rustic antique feel of the sideboard with the attention to detail of the handles gives a stunning piece to work with for furnishing your room.

A vintage mushroom print hanging above the sideboard would really set it off alongside a foxy faced piece of quirky wall art.

Deers and stags fit into the scheme with seasonal candles and candle holders. As I love different lights depending on the situation, the owl table lamp and some toadstool fairy lights add to the ambiance. 

A stack of my fairytale books and some fairy tale houses would look so pretty on the the sideboard too and make a cosy nook area for me to sit near with a cosy country cushion.
