As the leaves are changing color this year, my eyes are widened to the incredible California trees. They’re everywhere. I’d almost say that I hardly notice they’re there when I’m out jogging, but every now and then I’ll look up and feel so thankful for this incredible gift we have — these powerful, far-reaching forms that provide us with so much life. While their elegant bodies are lovely to picnic under, they are slowly being integrated into the world of art, fashion, and large-scale decor. Wood provides such a unique canvas for everyday things you wouldn’t normally expect.
With so many ingenious designers today combining my love of modern and glam along with rustic and modern is a can-do and must-do for home decor.
The natural beauty of wood isn’t lost hiding under years of paint and stain. It’s new weathered look it what gives it uniqueness and a whole new appreciation for reclaimed wood such as these boatwood teak pieces and stools made up of salvaged woods. Waste not want not is the new motto for home design.
The warmth of natural wood needn’t be held out for household treasures, bring the woodsy outdoors into your everyday including the office and your fashion.
