Remember the pieces of driftwood I purchased a couple of weeks ago?
If not, here are a couple of pics….
Driftwood was popular in the 60’s and 70’s and has recently made a come back in home decor.
I bought these pieces to make a wall sculpture for a client’s dining room.
This morning, when trying to decide if I was going to part with them
or go buy more for the client when I had a thought..
My favorite place in the world is the beach, so naturally I should
have some things to remind me of my favorite place when I cannot be there, right?
Here are some images that are not only appealing but remind me of my favorite place.
Do you have reminders of your favorite getaway in your home?
This dining room by Bear Hill Interiors has always been one of my all time favorite dining rooms. It has a capiz shell chandelier, a driftwood table, blue of the ocean in the art and the objects on the table. If my eyes are seeing correctly, it looks as though the ceiling is painted blue like the sky. The lack of a rug in room keeps the space casual and makes me think of nature. I especially like the driftwood table base painted white for a softer look in this space. The bold punches of color are all colors found in nature.
This space screams beach to me!…uhmmmm… so that’s why I like so much!!!
How about you, do you like this space?
Driftwood doesn’t necessarily have to beachy connotation. It could be what a room needs to add surprising element to keep the space from feeling too formal as in this room designed by Tiffany Eastman Interiors. The addition of the two driftwood side tables definitely adds an interesting element to this apartment in New York City.
Bringing the outdoors in is just what this bay window needed. This table scape is
loaded with a great mix organic items. The pops of red are dynamite!
