2011-09-05 One of my absolute favorite blog posts and it was a sure hit. I think I got more comments here than any other. Loved all the neat inspiration regarding driftwood and it’s uniqueness. Enjoy, and I will see you back on Tuesday with some new inspiration the Beach Coast Style way.
I love driftwood and it’s going to make its way into my beach home in various different forms. I love table lamps, over head lighting and little odds and ends used for votive lighting. I think it adds such a romantic and soft feel to any space. It doesn’t seem to overpower the space; just the added touch needed to bring the outdoors in. I love that it’s a constant reminder of the beach. I have often said I really want to add natural elements into my space and this covers a small portion of that requirement.
My favorites are the driftwood mirrors and the overhead driftwood chandelier. The driftwood chandelier would look so lovely over a dining room table over looking the beach. Another idea would be a smaller scaled down version hanging over the bed in the master bedroom or over the beautiful bathtub in the master bath would look heavenly. We could throw in a few rose petals, a glass of wine and some soothing bath essentials and we might just drift away.
It’s something about beach driftwood that reminds me of life. It kinda of just floats along the ocean not knowing which way to go and finally it makes it to its destination.
