18 Light Wood Home Accessories from Katie Anderson of Modern Eve

Interior designers are swapping painted cabinets and dark floors for lighter wood tones. But you don’t need to remodel to get in on this trend. Whether it’s beech, birch, ash or oak, this softer palette helps create an open, natural feel and can look fresh, modern, rustic or cozy (depending on the execution, of course). Here are some of my favorite picks right now:


Start by introducing blonde wood in small doses. As a neutral, it goes with basically everything.

Owen Pillar Holders from Crate & Barrel, $27, $23

Light wood lamps are my favorite right now. I especially love the combination of nude wood and white.
