We drift Away With Driftwood Lighting [Design File Thursday]

Driftwood is such a versatile piece of wood.  I love driftwood because you do not have to own a beach home to give it a little beach home design.  No, a lovely piece of driftwood made into a great lighting fixture will do the trick.  I did a prior blog post on overall design of driftwood which included some lighting and it was one of my most popular blog posts.  Here is the link to the prior blog post here.  I decided I would break it down into a couple of posts so look for another one soon on driftwood design elements.

I love all of these driftwood lighting fixtures.  You’ve got something for a traditional, modern or a shabby designed home.  I just love driftwood for its uniqueness, texture and its natural elements.  Another unique snippet about driftwood is it can be utilized in just about any room of your home to give it the added beach touch.  An idea that keeps flashing in my mind is to use it as a light fixture over the bathtub.  I don’t know why but I imagine dimmed lighting and a bathtub overflowing with bubbles and some light music.  Ahh doesn’t that sound relaxing.

I am a big fan of these fittings – I use similar styles in a lot of the beach houses I design. They add character, charm & lots of style!
