Farm style " raw wood "



I absolutely love the beauty

of raw wood. I have several pieces

that I am currently using around

the Dior home...





Old ladders, tables and other elements

bring in the " farm style "

touch that blends so well with

our neutral pallet...





Some of the pieces have

traces of old paint which

adds to the natural beauty

of old wood...





I spied this raw wood book case in

the garden many months ago


Mr. Dior works out in the garden

when Brande needs him and when she

decided that she no longer 

needed this piece, I received

the best surprise

 when it came home with him...





I love the simplicity of it...





this old wire basket was

my favorite find last week

for one dollar...

which was a perfect fit

for our home




I found quite a few ladders

last week which some have gone

to the STORE

to add that " farm style " beauty

to someone's home.





I will be linking up to






Have a beautiful week!

XOXO

You make it look so simple and yet, when I style with raw wood, it never looks as perfect as your designs. Love that little white table!

just yesterday I walked past the old ladder that my husband left in the hallway and thought... "where can I put that without the cat thinking I have created a new toy for him?" Toy or not, I think I will try it out in the living room today! Thanks for the inspiration Kate! t.xoox

Hi Kate ~ Love the photos, when I see the first one with the ladder, it reminds me of the old wooden ladder that my Dad used all the time, I guess we threw it away after he passed & we cleared out the house ~ I wish now that I had saved it, but I guess 17 years ago, it was not a fashion statement for the home! but your photo sure brought back sweet memories
Hope Life is treating you The Best!
