I love bringing natural elements into a room and one of my favorite is driftwood. Driftwood is like a fingerprint, there are no two pieces that are alike. Each is special in shape, color and texture depending on where it came from.
A large piece of driftwood I found while beachcombing is proped up against my heater in the family room. It adds something a little more interesting to look at besides the ugly rental-grade heater that I can't do anything about.
One end is all twisted & mangled and the color of the wood is perfectly sun bleached & worn.
Another piece sits on my entryway / family room table (when I don't have fresh flowers there). It's just as mangled looking and has the same perfect sun bleached color.
What natural elements do you bring into your home?
