The Warmth of Wood



Organic, natural and rustic or refined, polished and sleek~ there's something about wood that instantly warms up a space.  Wood floors, exposed beams, hand made furniture and objects, these all add instant coziness and heart to any home.

  1. I love warm wood tones with white - it makes the wood look almost sculptural, like art. I especially love the last photo of the bedroom with the dutch door.

  4. I don't know that wood was ever out of vogue per se, but I'm glad to see it being recognized again for what it offers.
    I've never been able to get past that huge python photograph in the first image, though -eeeek!
