Décor Trendspotting: Earthy Texture

Jenny Rogers

Pairing wood, glass, rope and more with neutral hues and bold blues brings the best of the great outdoors into your home.

The Blues

Pairing two pillows with a similar hue-one more casual, the other a statement-maker-adds an element of chic to a simple sofa or armchair. Find these and so much more at Relish House in Grandview. $200 large, $50 small, relishhouse.com

Unexpected Details

All in a RowNothing's as classic as a wood-and-glass combo, and nothing sets the tone for a room like a little ambient lighting. Find this tea-light holder at Touched. $48, touchedstyle.com

Versatile Value
