An emerging trend gaining more popularity with each day is decorating with mixed wood finishes. This is the use of fun materials such as rattan, wicker, bamboo and many more – adding rustic layers of texture to your home! Mixed wood finishes give your home the modern farmhouse style Chip & Joanna Gaines have mastered over the years, and who doesn’t want that? If you’re interested in learning how to decorate with mixed wood finishes, continue reading below!


There are loads of ways to decorate with mixed wood finishes through your furniture, these being just a couple of ways: statement chairs, headboards, outdoor lounge set, storage spaces or a shelving unit, and our favorite stand out item – a chic porch swing! If you’re looking to test out the idea of decorating with multiple kinds of wood but aren’t fully committed yet, we recommend going with something simple like some storage containers or a statement chair to give it a try. But if you’re 100% on board with mixed wood finishes and are ready to take on this style – then we recommend going bold with a statement headboard for your room or an outdoor piece such as a porch swing or furniture set.

Another way to decorate with mixed wood finishes that you may not have thought of is through your window treatments. Natural woven shades are extremely popular right now, giving your home a more natural feel and allowing the sun to shine in. At ABC Blind & Drapery, we offer many textures including tortoise, bamboo, grasscloth, matchstick and rib cords. If you’re unsure if you want natural wood in your home, we also recommend taking wood window treatments such as shutters and giving them a fresh coat of paint!


If you’re looking to add mixed wood finishes to your home quickly and affordably, then accessories are the way to go. Whether it’s a wicker basket or an oak mirror, accessories are a quick and simple way to incorporate multiple types of wood into your home whenever you feel like it. Another easy way to decorate with wood is with wall decor or accent pieces, such as wood frames or wood sculptures, as seen in the photo above.
