Raw materials and natural appeal
Warm colors are so effective because they instinctively remind us of nature. That is why wood and raw materials are the easiest way to include these tints in our home décor. This rule is true for every area of the house, but it will work particularly well in the living room. Objects and designs that show the most natural look of wood have both a reassuring and empowering effect on us, and skilled craftsman and designers have the ability to increase this feeling when creating their best works. Dialma Brown is a brand that mainly works with earth colors and natural look materials, and this cabinet is one of their finest pieces: minimalist, modern, and exalting the beauty of raw wood at best.
